A swimming pool is something that should last a long time. Customers spend tens of thousands on a swimming pool project, and as a result the swimming pool shell must last. Dominion Pool & Spa’s use of Leisure Pools’ Patent Pending Full Vinyl Ester Resin swimming pool is another key step to ensure that this occurs.

 

Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin

Leisure Pools manufactures each composite fiberglass swimming pool using Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin for each layer of the swimming pool construction (except the gelcoat color layer). Vinyl Ester Resin is a high performance resin that provides improved strength properties and inhibits water penetration into the laminate, which is commonly referred to as osmosis.As a result of using Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin for each layer of the swimming pool Leisure Pools is able to offer a Lifetime Structural Warranty and Lifetime Structural Osmosis Warranty, making it the best available Warranty on the market today.

Leisure Pools has strategically integrated the Composite Armour™ Core of Strength in critical locations on the swimming pool to provide improved flexural and tensile strength to provide a stronger swimming pool.

Testing shows that a Leisure Pools Composite Armour™ Full Vinyl Ester Resin Swimming Pool is 111% stronger than a standard fiberglass swimming pool.

 

 

Vinyl Ester Resin -v- Polyester Resin

Leisure Pools has a patent pending to be the only composite fiberglass swimming pool manufacturer to use Vinyl Ester Resin for each layer after the gelcoat color layer.
