Adding a pool to your home not only provides a luxurious place to welcome friends, relax, and cool off on a hot day, but it also adds tremendous value to your property. Gallivan Corporation’s pool installation service in Albany,  Saratoga, Greenfield, and beyond, can help you choose the perfect pool oasis to create your dream backyard.

Pool Shapes

Choosing the right shape for your pool is about more than aesthetics. Different pool shapes allow for different features, such as entry and exit steps, tanning decks, swim-up areas, fountains, and more. The best pool shape is the one that fits into your allotted physical space as well as suits your personal lifestyle and preferences.

Pool Styles

The pool shape is just one aspect of designing a dream pool. Gallivan pool installation in Albany, NY, offers a range of pool styles, developed in conjunction with Barrier Reef Fiberglass, who provides the foundation of each beautiful pool. We work with every homeowner to find the pool style that will be appreciated, enjoyed, and used for years to come. Every pool style is available in six colors to match the color scheme you envision for your backyard space.

Billabong Cove

Billabong Cove is a freeform pool with a featured lounging ledge. This pool style measures 35 feet long and also includes deep end lounge seating, entry steps with a textured finish, and a safety ledge around the perimeter of the pool.

Billabong Splash

The Billabong Splash pool, like the Billabong Cove, is also a freeform shape with a lounging ledge. The Billabong Splash style pool is just a bit smaller than the Billabong Cove at 27 feet long, but it still includes deep end lounge seating, entry steps with a textured finish, and a safety ledge around the perimeter of the pool.


The Bondi pool style is a rectangular pool with a wide flat entry design. The flat entry provides not only a safe way to get in and out of the pool, but it’s also spacious enough to set up pool chairs and lounge in the shallow water.

Coral Sea

The Coral Sea pool style is a popular freeform pool option. This style is available in five different models, including two sizes of the Coral Sea Lounger, which features a lounging ledge.


At just 16 feet, six inches long, the Crispin kidney-shaped pool is a stylish option for a smaller space. The whole pool has a depth of nearly four feet and features a wraparound seating ledge, generous entry steps in a textured finish, and a safety ledge around the perimeter.


Available in two models, the Daydream pool style features an integrated spa and freeform shape. The Daydream pool also includes deep end seating, textured entry steps, and a safety ledge around the perimeter of the pool.

The Opal pool model is a modified kidney-shaped pool that is ideal for smaller spaces. It measures just over 21 feet long and features a seating ledge, generous entry steps in a textured finish, and a safety ledge around the perimeter of the pool.


The popular Outback pool style is available in three different models, ranging from 23 to 30 feet long. All models of this rectangular pool style include a wide swim lane, safety ledge, deep end seating, and swim outs. The Outback Lounger model also features a wide tanning ledge for maximum relaxation.

With its small footprint, measuring just 16 and a half feet in length, the Pixie pool is an excellent option for small spaces. The Pixie pool takes full advantage of the kidney-shaped design and includes a seating ledge, entry steps, and consistent depth.


As a luxurious freeform pool option, the Southport pool style is an ideal choice. The Southport pool measures 28 feet long and includes a deep end ledge and stairs, wide swim lane, generous entry steps, and a safety ledge.

If you have never owned a pool before, you may have a few questions. Following are some of the most common things that come up during the process.

Can I empty a fiberglass swimming pool?

Do not empty a fiberglass swimming pool. If the pool must be emptied for some reason, consult your contact at Gallivan before emptying it, or you may void your warranty.

What styles and designs are available?

As an authorized installer of Barrier Reef Fiberglass Pools LLC, Gallivan installs fiberglass pools in many different shapes, styles, and sizes. Rectangular, kidney-shaped, freeform, and Roman-shaped pools are available in a huge range of sizes and styles to suit every property.

Can a fiberglass pool be installed indoors?

Yes, fiberglass pools are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor installation.

Does the pool come with a warranty?

Gallivan-installed fiberglass pools come with a lifetime structural warranty in addition to a 15-year warranty against blistering for the pools’ gel coat.

How much do fiberglass pools cost?

As with many home improvements, the cost of a fiberglass pool can vary depending on the selected options, such as size, shape, and features. Fiberglass pools have a lower cost of ownership over their lifetime than concrete or vinyl liner pools.

Will I need a permit to install a pool?

Every municipality has different rules around installing pools. Gallivan can help you to navigate any necessary installation permits.

Will a fiberglass pool rust?

Fiberglass pools will not rust.

How long does it take to install a fiberglass pool?

The time needed to install a fiberglass pool is dependent on the time it takes to dig the hole. The fiberglass pool arrives completely ready to install, so the timeline depends largely on the landscape of the property and any other barriers to installation.
