So Why Should I consider a Fiberglass Pool?
Fiberglass Pools are becoming the fastest growing segment of the swimming pool industry. Why? Fiberglass Pools have been around since 1958 and since then Fiberglass Pool manufacturing has grown tremendously throughout the country and abroad. I have been in the swimming pool industry personally many years and have seen tremendous growth in the technology and craftsmanship of these types of pools during the past decade. Later we will get into how this industry went from a one mold and one color industry, to hundreds of mold designs and various color options. We will also discuss the advanced technology we embrace and why we feel our exclusive gelcoat dominates the industry ten fold.
The days of offering ordinary white fiberglass pool shells in the basic rectangle shape are over. Since the late 50′s the design elements of these composite pools changed dramatically. Not only has the shapes and colors changed over the years but the way these pools are manufactured today has completely revolutionized the way we all view the Fiberglass Pool industry. Why is that? Back in the day, general purpose resins where used in the manufacturing process whereas today Top quality manufacturers are using 100 percent Vinyl Ester resins to manufacture these one piece Fiberglass Pools. Many consumers might overlook the 100 percent Vinyl Ester resin process, but I wouldn’t be so quick to overlook the most important part of the manufacturing process. What I mean by this is our manufacturers have adopted the 100 percent Vinyl ester resin process due to the many benefits listed below.
Vinyl Ester Resin High quality expensive resin High corrosion resistance High strength properties
High resistance to micro fracturing
High resistance to shrinkage
Polyester Resin Cheapest resin available
Poor corrosion resistance Poor strength properties Poor resistance to micro fracturing Poor resistance to shrinkage
So its just not about about a fiberglass pool its about picking the right Fiberglass Pool!
We will point you in the right direction!
