San Juan Fiberglass Pools
San Juan Fiberglass Pools are the highest quality fiberglass pools on the market, and we offer over 90 models to choose from. San Juan is the original and largest manufacturer of fiberglass pools in the world, starting back in 1957. San Juan uses a minimum of five layers of hand laid fiberglass with no chopped fiberglass or fillers and is the only manufacturer that uses 100% vinyl ester resins in the manufacturing process. A satin smooth 32-mil gel coat is used as a finish on all of San Juan’s pools. A 25 year structural warranty comes with every San Juan pool.
You have three options when selecting a type of pool: Fiberglass, Vinyl Liner or Gunite. Fiberglass is a strong, lightweight material that is constructed by weaving small glass threads into fabric and hardening the fabric with a special polyester resin. These pools can be installed rather quickly and are more resistant to algae, helping maintain a stable pH level.
Along with several years of enjoyment, your fiberglass pool offers several advantages:
- Durability. A fiberglass pool is an “all weather” pool, meaning it has 17 times the flexible strength of concrete. It is more tolerant with soils that can expand and contract from freeze conditions.
- Repairs. A fiberglass pool has no further maintenance once it is properly installed. Meaning no liners to replace, no gunite to crack, no replastering or acid washing
- Surface Texture. A fiberglass pool has a silky smooth finish whereas a gunite pool will have a very rough, gritty finish.
- Care and Maintenance. Compared to maintenance of gunite or vinyl, there is very little maintenance required due to the finish of fiberglass pools.
- Installation time. The installation of a fiberglass pool can be a matter of few days as compared to weeks and months for vinyl and gunite. The installation team is critical, meaning The Pool Source has factory certified installers and takes NO SHORTCUTS.
- Design Features. Most fiberglass models come with entry stairs, love seats swimouts, sun shelves or swim-up bars. These options are expensive in gunite and vinyl liner pools.
