Leisure Pools manufactures each composite fibreglass swimming pool using Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin for each layer of the swimming pool construction (except the gelcoat colour layer). 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.By way of background, standard fibreglass pools are made up of a number of layers being:
Standard Pool Failures with Polyester Resin
Standard fibreglass pool manufacturers however only use Vinyl Ester Resin as one layer on the swimming pool as Vinyl Ester Resin is generally double the cost of a Polyester Resin, which is a cheaper resin used to provide bulk to the swimming pool. Unfortunately, even with this one layer of Vinyl Ester Resin, osmosis has still on occasion appeared and swimming pools have on occasion failed using this standard manufacturing method. This may have been because manufacturers attempt to use as little Vinyl Ester Resin as possible given it is generally double the cost of the cheaper Polyester Resin.
A swimming pool is a large investment so in order to eliminate the risk of failure Leisure Pools do not take any short cuts and have a Patent Pending to be the only company able to offer a composite fibreglass swimming pool with a full Vinyl Ester Resin Construction.
Leisure Pools have taken this course of action in order to offer the following amazing benefits:

So what are the differences between Vinyl Ester Resin compared to a Polyester Resin:
There are numerous technical websites that will go into detail regarding the respective resin and given the investment of a swimming pool it is worth spending 5-10 minutes to do your own research.
