What are the pros and cons between a fiberglass and gunite pool?

I am researching the same question and this is what I have found so far: having a "freeze line" is not a good condition for fiberglass pools. Fiberglass pools are cheaper to install and use less chemicals to maintain. I was told the chemicals also do less damage to fiberglass, if any?, than to gunite pools. Fiberglass pools must be filled at all times to avoid "popping up". The only thing that still has me leaning towards gunite is a custom pool shape we have in mind. Hope this helps. I am also trying to decide between fibergalss and gunite. I have been told (by a gunite dealer) that there is a problem with staining in fiberglass pools. Besides a low water level, what else might cause a fiberglass pool to pop up?

What are the advantages or disadvantages of gunite pools vs fiberglass pools in the Northeast?

Advantages of fiberglass versus gunite(concrete) There are many things such as lifetime structure warranty, very low maintenance, cheaper heating costs, and they can be moved. Disadvantages would be depth, size, and finish colors even though there are many colors available for fiberglass pools. Viking Fiberglass pools are the most expensive but you know the saying you get what you pay for. In the northeast you have more of a chance of having a fiberglass pool pop out of the ground. I have always perfered gunite over any other finish (even vinyl) I think the look is lush but again you do get what you pay for. Which is why gunite is more expensive.

Learning about Fiberglass?

Fiberglass repair can be extremely difficult to perform correctly. This is because fiberglass is a weak material and can crack easily under pressure. If you’re driving a car made of fiberglass, you have to be extremely careful because if your car gets hit the big dent can crack and spread throughout the rest of the car. This is the reason why many cars produced today do not have any fiberglass in them thankfully Fixing fiberglass is a long and drawn out process. The recovery process on a dent or crack on a fiberglass automobile begins with a crack being brought together and having fiberglass mold spread across the dent or crack. If the dent or crack is too severe and large it might be better to just buy a new section of fiberglass and install it on your automobile. However, if the crack is not too large, continue to spread the fiberglass mold across the crack or dent carefully. Let the mold sit for a few hours and remember the fiberglass repair is a long process that requires patience, perseverance and skill. If you are not sure you can do this please take your vehicle to reputable and skilled fiberglass automobile repairman. If you make a mistake during the initial phase of the restoration you’ll have to start all over again. This will cost a lot of time and money and you will likely end up frustrated and giving up. So if you are unsure about your abilities as a fiberglass repairman please find someone who can do the correct job. Don’t be upset if you cannot handle the fiberglass repair process. It takes years of practice and lots of money to become proficient at this profession. Fortunately, once the fiberglass is correctly fixed there is nothing to worry about. The good thing about fiberglass is that it is resistant to weather such as rain and sleet or strong winds. The unfortunate thing is, if you get in an automobile accident and receive a crack or dent it will without a doubt spread to the rest of the car. So you need to be aware of that if somebody hits you.
