All of our sales presentations discuss the pros and cons of each type of pool. Some concrete builders will scare the heck out of consumers telling them “fiberglass pools float”. Fiberglass guys say “concrete pools are rough”. On vinyl pools, they say “the vinyl will rip”. At the end of the day, there are pros and cons to each type of pool. We wish there wasn’t, it would be awesome to just sell one type of pool that was perfect for everyone, but the truth is that this isn’t always the case.
Fiberglass pools are great pools that have come a long way over the years. 20 years ago, you could tell a fiberglass pool because it was the white pool with the ugly white lip around it. Today with stronger materials, new color schemes, fusing of pools together, there is much more that can be done with fiberglass pools. While there is not an infinite array of pools to choose from, there are certainly many to choose from. We are a proud dealer of Viking Pools. They are the largest and we feel like the best fiberglass pool offered. Unique to their shell is a ceramic core which gives the shell a much more enduring structure than other manufacturers. This is likely the reason they are by far the largest manufacturer of fiberglass pools in the United States. With quality comes quantity. Bi-State has built many of these fiberglass pools including award-winning pools on a local, regional and international basis. In addition to offering the finest line of pools is factory training. The number one reason there are horror stories of pools being built is that some people should not be pool builders. With over 500 pools installed and being in business since 1994, we certainly have a leg up on our competition and are always learning the latest and greatest techniques and trends to stay current with our industry. Let us see your backyard so we can show you what your yard could become.
