For years, Sun Pools has been a leader in the manufacturing of quality one-piece fiberglass swimming pools. Utilizing the latest technology, all Sun Pools are handcrafted and finished with a modified epoxy skin-coat resin, along with structural ribs and a reinforced coping.
With all of our poor models, you can expect:
The largest part of any inground swimming pool project is actually building the swimming pool shell. Sun Pools are built in the factory and arrive on site with a finished fiberglass shell ready to be installed saving weeks of construction time.
Sun’s fiberglass pools feature a smooth comfortable interior surface that won’t snag your swimsuit or skin and require minimum chemical treatment. The pools surface won’t need to be replaced like a vinyl liner pool or acid washed or re-coated like a concrete pool. Lowest operating costs of any inground pool!!!
Sun Pools have built in shallow end entry steps, underwater swim-out seating areas. The floor and steps of the pool feature a non-skid textured bottom.
The pools have optional inlaid mosaic tile designs, waterline tile trim, built in waterfalls and color underwater lighting.
No Clear Coat
Sun Pools have 4 solid color choices available, these solid colors are high grade marine finishes with a proven track record. Some fiberglass companies offer various color designs that all start with a clear coat base. However, a clear base will breakdown over time and cause the exposed surface to yellow or fog. The marine industry experimented with the clear coat for the bass boats in the late 80’s and found the clear top coat to be problematic for minor repairs and durability. Companies that offer these clear coat surfaces require the top rim of the pool to be poured over with concrete (cantilevering) adding thousands of dollars in installation costs.
No Resin Fillers
Sun Pools are built using high grade marine FRP resin products. These products make Sun Pools the most consistent product available today the exterior shell colors are uniform and not dyed, tinted or vary from pool to pool.
Hand Cut and Laid Materials
Sun Pools feature a critical point lamination process that utilizes hand cut sheet fabric for each swimming pool model. While the industry has no real standard for the way a fiberglass pool is physically fabricated, Sun Pools uses a process similar to that of a high end yacht placing the structural material across the pool shell from side to side. This differs from most fiberglass pool companies that lay bulk glass on the pool from end to end using longer runs of material, or what’s called gun roving or chop glass that’s sprayed on the mold and controlled by the operator of the spray equipment. The craftsmanship of Sun Pools shells is visually apparent compared to the other brands, The lamination on Sun Pools shells is smooth and clean, not splintered. Sun Pools shells are the best in the business!
No Spreader Beams on shell
Most fiberglass pools are shipped with a belly band or spreader bar across the pool to hold its shape during the handling and installation. The critical point lamination process on Sun Pools shells enables the pool to support itself. A spreader bar or belly band is not required to handle and place a Sun Pool.
All Sun Pools fiberglass pools shells are backed by a Lifetime Structural Pool Shell Warranty. The interior surface has a 3 year warranty and the warranty is transferable within the first 36 months. The warranty is limited to the terms and conditions outlined in the Sun Pools Inc. Shell Warranty Certificate delivered with each pool; this warranty does require registration with the corporate office.
