ULTRAGUARD vs Fiberglass



Your Options are: Paints, Plaster, Marcite or Fiberglass.
Let's Compare our UltraGuard AC to a Fiberglass Restoration.

• Both Fiberglass and UltraGuard are two part systems which use a catalyst which creates a membrane with specifications greater than 14,000 psi compressive strength.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard are structural shells that stop all leaks.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard are non-porous where algae cannot cling and usage of chemicals is reduced nearly 50%.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard never need wire brushing and never need acid washing.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard are inert coats that don't interact with the chemicals and pool substrate which causes failure of other topcoats.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard have a surface that permanently stays smooth, which means no cut or scuffed feet.

• Both Fiberglass and
UltraGuard are Hi-Tech industrial coatings that can withstand harsh chemicals and are resistant to staining and blemishes.


Unlike UltraGuard, Fiberglass does not flex and will fail, pop off and delaminate especially under the tile, kimmer, returns, bottom drains, wherever fiberglass ends.

Unlike UltraGuard,Fiberglass is extremely difficult to install. In the fiberglass industry, journeymen and apprentices are never allowed to apply fiberglass unless they have had yearsof experience. This is not true of UltraGuard where previous experience is not necessary.

Unlike UltraGuard, Fiberglass upon application will wick (dry areas) which causes the permeation of the pool water and starts the process of failure by delamination.

Unlike UltraGuard, Fiberglass has no chemical bond. It gives a physical bond at best and that is questionable.

UltraGuard has a 2,000 PSI bond which becomes and integral part of the pool shell.

Unlike UltraGuard, Fiberglass is not an elastomeric membrane.

Unlike UltraGuard, Fiberglass's gelcoat has a maximum life expectancy of 5 to 6 years. It is only a Paint! Ask any Boat Owner!

Unlike UltraGuard, which offers 6 different colors, the gel coat of Fiberglass will streak if dark colors are used. That’s why they recommend only white.
