I live in Michigan and currently have a one piece Viking Fiberglass Pool that I purchased from Midwest Pools in Grand Blanc. I have owned concrete and vinyl lined pools in my past homes and had nothing but nightmares to contend with. Fiberglass is much easier and cheaper to maintain.

I also live in Michigan but purchased a fiberglass pool from Aquamarine Pools. It is a Leisure Pool and we absolutely love it!!! Besides the Pool Aquamarine was very professional and would recommend the company to anyone who wants to purchase a fiberglass pool. Very knowledgeable

If you want to purchase a fiberglass pool from Midwest Pools and have another company put it in you might be alright, but NEVER, EVER sign a contract with Midwest Pool for installation of a pool. We were promised by our salesman that we'd be swimming in 3-4 weeks (it took 10 weeks), we were never told that they would obliterate our back yard and leave it covered in yards of dirty and gravel, they installed our pool 5 1/2 further from our fence that it was supposed to be, took down our fence and gates (said they would put them back up) and are now trying to weasel out of it, and totally wrecked the sprinkler system in our back yard (salesman told us there would be "minimal damage" and that it could be spliced together. This company is a total joke. I wouldn't recommend anyone sign a contract with them, period!

Many of our friends water temp in their Vinyl pool is approx 80 degrees right now. We have a Fiberglass pool temp is appr 72 degrees. Do vinyl pools heat up faster than fiberlass pools?

My guess is that your fiberglass pool is white (attracts less sunlight) and your friends' vinyl pools are blue or some other darker color, which attract more sunlight, therefore making them warmer.
