I watched the factory tour and was surprised that regular residential fiberglass insulation is used. Why not an insulation product not so affected by water, mineral/rock wool?


Fiberglass insulation may soak up and hold water, but since it is made from glass (duh!!) it won't rot.



We at one time used block foam but that also holds water. Anyone with a hot tub and insulated cover can attest to that.
Not sure of any insulation that does not hold water unless it is just to insulated from UV radiation.  Not even sure what the concern is?


There is a closed cell foam like is used in swimming pool floats that won't absorb water. But it is heavy and doesn't have as good an insulating value as open cell foam or fiberglass. I agree with Dan- what is the problem with your roof insulation?



Pool lights are a great way to add style and functionality to your pool. Lights can be used to create a dramatic nighttime atmosphere or to make it easier to see underwater. There are several types of pool lights to choose from, such as LED, incandescent, and fiber optic lights. LED lights are the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option and provide bright, vibrant light. Incandescent lights are less expensive but consume more energy, while fiber optic lights are the most expensive but offer the brightest, most vibrant light.
