How Long Can I Expect My Vinyl or Fiberglass Pool to Last?

Installing a swimming pool is an unbelievably exciting long-term investment. We know you are already envisioning fantastic backyard parties, splashes and laughter, and all of the summer sunshine and fun that comes with owning your own pool. Whether you are installing a backyard pool for your children and their friends, or a place for you and your adult friends to gather and relax after a long work week, an in-ground pool is an excellent choice.

From the start of your research journey and beginning consultation to your beautifully finished and installed pool, it is important to feel confident and excited about your investment. DesRochers Backyard Pools and Spas wants to ensure that you receive years of worry-free ownership when you purchase your pool or spa.

One question that we receive quite a bit is how long the different types of in-ground pools will last. That’s why we offer two fantastic options for you to choose from: vinyl and fiberglass. Let’s jump right in and see the longevity and perks that these two options will bring to your life.



The upfront cost of a vinyl pool is less than some of the other options on the market. Vinyl pools are a fantastic choice for many people. They are great for customized options on shape and size. You will also have a variety of beautiful liners to choose from, as well as a number of fun additions like water fountains, slides, and fire pits. Our vinyl pools are designed to perfectly complement your unique backyard. You can anticipate many fantastic seasons from a vinyl pool. When you take care of your water and your liner correctly, you can expect to have 6-12 years of use out of your vinyl liner before it needs to be replaced. Treat it extra nice and it may last even longer!




The upfront cost of a fiberglass pool is more than a vinyl pool, but over time the maintenance is less. We are a proud installer of Trilogy Pools. These are quality, one-piece, fiberglass pools that can be installed in a matter of days. These fiberglass pools never need resurfacing or relining. When you factor in your overall budget for the lifetime of your pool, definitely take that into consideration. Fiberglass pools also use less chemicals and electricity, due to a special pool surface that inhibits algae formation. You can expect to have 30 years up to a lifetime of use from your fiberglass pool. That’s an excellent investment!
