Endless Pools® vs. Fiberglass Pools

For family fun and entertaining, Endless Pools offer all the benefits of a fiberglass pool, PLUS so much more.

  • Year-round use in the privacy, comfort, and safety of home, day or night.
  • Installation in existing rooms (patios, garages, basements) due to its modular construction.
  • Affordable to heat and maintain due to its compact size.
  • Less chlorine than tap water thanks to our UV filtration.
  • Swim against our fully adjustable current — no flip-turns!

Lower costs, more versatility, eco-friendly design – that’s what makes an Endless Pool the intelligent choice for year-round swimming, exercise, therapy, and family fun.

Affordable, indoors or out.

Endless Pool models start at $23,900 with a swim current.

Just $9,400 for a WaterWell therapy pool (not for swimming).

Thousands more than standard Endless Pools in most cases.

Indoor pools are only an option with new construction as the pool arrives in one piece.


Year-round access. It's always summer with an Endless Pool!

Everything you'd do in a fiberglass pool – get fit, relax, cool off, play – plus swimming and at a lower cost!

Only a few months a year in most climates.

Require costly, time-consuming winterizing.


Smooth, even current – wider than your body, deeper than your stroke.

Swim as long as you want – no flip-turns!

Easily adjustable speeds.

Friendly to beginners, challenging to Olympians.

Only allows 4-5 strokes before each flip-turn, as the maximum length is around 40'.

Virtually impossible to get a satisfying workout.


Perfect family fun all year long.

For boogie boarding, Marco Polo, or just splashing around, kids and grandkids love the adjustable current.

During the warm months only, a fiberglass pool is a great place to cool off and spend quality family time together.


Custom sizes and finish options to design the pool of your dreams.

Use any finish material – tile, marble, wood, etc. – to match your décor.

A range of different models to suit your lifestyle.

With a fiberglass pool, you're limited to only those prefabricated designs that your dealer offers.

Even minor customization (i.e. moving steps from one side to the other) requires a costly new mold.

Larger pools cost more to finish.


Requires a space as small as 9' x 14'.

Installs practically anywhere, even in existing rooms.

Allows much more room for patios or decks than fiberglass pools.

May take up most of the yard.

Leaves little room for other recreational areas.

Energy Efficiency

Uses less space, water, and chemicals than fiberglass pools.

Lower energy bills from insulated pool walls and less water.

Super-efficient 120-watt pump.

Expensive to operate due to the large amount of water involved.

Extending the season beyond a few months requires a large heater and high energy bills.


Takes just a few days with two handy people in an existing space.

Affordable Factory-Trained Installers available.

Simple enough for DIY.

In-ground fiberglass pools require expensive excavation with industrial backhoes.

Most fiberglass pools cannot be installed above ground.

Installation, including excavation and concrete work, routinely takes 3-5 weeks.


Minimal chlorine.

Nature2 copper/silver purification system, kinder on your skin and eyes.

Automatic UV Water Purifier available.

Solar cover included.

Requires more harsh and expensive chemicals due to the greater water volume.

Costly over the life of the pool.

Difficult to maintain consistent pH balance.

That choice is clear. Now, which Endless Pool is right for you?
