Twenty Five Year Warranty
San Juan Fiberglass Pools has been in business since 1958, that is over 55 years of fiberglass construction know-how! With a San Juan fiberglass pool you will have the highest quality and lowest maintenance pool available anywhere. Every San Juan Pool comes with a 25-year warranty against structural defects. That gives you peace of mind over years and years of pool ownership.
Virtually Maintenance Free
Fiberglass pools are easier to clean, and easier to keep clean than any other type of pool. Typically as much as 50 % to 75 % less chemical and electricity use. The following quote was taken from Money Magazine: “Fiberglass Pools are the easiest pools to maintain. The smooth finish (gel-coat) and rounded corners do not chip, tear, or harbor bacteria and algae.”
Longevity and Resale
No liner replacements ever, not for you and not for the person who considers buying your home, if you decide to sell, a few years from now. The same benefits of fiberglass that you will enjoy will be passed on to the next owner of your home, not a maintenance liability. Liner warranties only cover seam failure (not tears, punctures or fading), are pro-rated (typically less than 50% of the cost of the liner only at year 6), and do not cover labor to install. The average liner replacement will cost from $1800 to $3500 depending on the size of pool and what damage was caused at the time the liner failed. Unlike a printed or painted tile pattern Ceramic tiles, applied with space industry silicone adhesives, do not fade and will look every bit as good in 10 years as they did the first year they were installed.
No acid washing, no re-plastering or re-painting, as with concrete, gunite or composite type pools. This must usually be done every 3-5 years at a cost of $1,800 to $3,500. Seamless all-fiberglass construction eliminates areas for leaks to occur and does not require periodic re-caulking or even patching down the road.
Proven Fiberglass Performance
You only need to look as far as the 20 and 30 year old boats at the marina to see the proven track record of fiberglass construction. The Royal British Navy has used fiberglass construction in its warships for many years it is also being used in the manufacture of helicopter blades because of its strength, flexibility and durability against cracking and the chemical manufacturing industry uses fiberglass as the material of choice for all types of short and long term storage purposes because it will not deteriorate or corrode.
Quality Controlled Construction
San Juan Fiberglass Pools are made entirely from 100% Vinyl Ester Resin and 5 layers of alternating hand laid matt and woven fiber optic grade fiberglass. The cosmetic NPG-Isothalic resin gel coat surface has a thickness of approximately 30 mil. and gives an all-fiberglass pool tremendous resistance to wear, resistance to bacteria and algae growth and a unique, pleasing appearance. These are the most expensive, and the very best materials and methods available for fiberglass pools. No fillers, extenders or automated “chop” methods are used. That makes our pools 25% stronger than any other fiberglass pool on the market without sacrificing the tremendous flexural strength fiberglass construction has to offer. The lack of fillers, extenders or a “composite” construction method also eliminates any potential for blistering or “bleeding” in the pool surface.
This incredible toughness means that a San Juan pool is the most frost and freeze resistant pool available for our harsh climate changes. Citicorp, one of America’s leading financial institutions, stated in a publication to customers and employees that “Fiberglass pools never need painting, require less maintenance and are more resistant to frost than all concrete pools.”
