Suitability and adaptability are the words that are most often used to describe our Riviera® pool. This is a swimming pool design that seems to blend perfectly with any home style and any home site. Its beautiful flowing lines and freeform design are a delight to landscape.
You can choose a tropical setting or combine the pool with rock landscaping and waterfalls, or use feature timber or even more formal paved areas. It doesn't seem to matter as the Riviera® always seems to be the perfect centerpiece for any landscape design.
The Riviera's good looks are not its only feature as this pool is truly a great pool for the family. The large wrap around bench at the shallow end is a great feature. Not only is it a play area for the kids but it's just perfect for adult seating as well. The wide steps give access to the bench area and also to the floor of the pool. The main body of water is generous in size and ideal for playing games and swimming.
The Riviera® is one of our most popular pools because it combines landscaping versatility with a functionality that will suit any family.
Composite Armour™ … The Standard At Seasonal World
Composite Armour™ is totally new technology in composite swimming pool manufacturing. Find out what makes this product so unique and why Seasonal World only offers this as a standard with every Leisure Pool model we install.
LEISURE POOLS® COMPOSITE ARMOUR™ = LIFETIME WARRANTY
The most important single component in any swimming pool project is the actual pool shell itself. It contains the water you swim in and it becomes the centerpiece that you then build all of your landscaping, paving, patios and lifestyle around.
Installing a swimming pool is a long-term investment and like us, our customers need to feel confident that what they’re putting in the ground as their main feature needs to be strong, durable and will last the test of time. The selection of a quality pool shell is a critical decision that you must get right. Unfortunately, there are many manufacturers who say that they build a quality swimming pool shell but in practice they don’t.
So how is a Leisure Pools® Composite Armour™ swimming pool different from a standard fiberglass swimming pool? Well it comes down to 4 key elements, being:
- Patented Composite Armour™ Core of Strength
- Patent Pending Full Vinyl Ester Resin Construction
- Composite Armour™ Step Technology™
- Exceptional Quality Control
COMPOSITE ARMOUR™ STANDARD AT SEASONAL WORLD … NO EXCEPTIONS!
Composite Armour™ is totally new technology in composite swimming pool manufacturing. This patented new technology is designed to significantly reinforce the composite swimming pool with a strategically integrated laminate that consists of a blend of DuPont™ Kevlar®, Carbon Fiber and Basalt Fiber. We call it our Core of Strength.
High performance fibers have been used in many cutting edge applicatioxns. DuPont™ Kevlar® is used in bullet proof vests, body armour, military vehicles, wind turbines and aerospace applications. Carbon Fiber and Basalt Fiber are used in aerospace and high performance automotive applications. When combined through Leisure Pools®Patented new technology, Composite Armour™ brings a new level of performance to the production of composite swimming pools.
By using Composite Armour™ in the pool shell laminate, we have been able to achieve tremendous improvement in flexural and tensile strength compared with normally constructed fiberglass pools.
FULL VINYL ESTER RESIN CONSTRUCTION
In simple terms a standard fiberglass pool is made up of a number of layers being:
1. Gelcoat Color Layer
2. Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin with Fiberglass Layer
3. Structural Polyester Resin with Fiberglass Layer
4. Polyester Resin Finishing Layer
One of the most important layers, of which has been introduced in the last 20 years, has been the incorporation of a Corrosive Resistant Vinyl Ester Resin layer. Vinyl Ester Resin is a high performance resin that not only provides improved strength properties, but also inhibits water penetration into the laminate, more commonly referred to as “Osmosis”.
Many manufacturers, however, will often apply only a single layer of Vinyl Ester Resin onto the swimming pool since Vinyl Ester Resin is traditionally double the cost of a Polyester Resin, a cheaper resin often used to provide bulk to the swimming pool.
Unfortunately, even with this one layer of Vinyl Ester Resin, issues related to Osmosis have continued to appear, resulting in the failure of swimming pools built under this traditional manufacturing method. This may have occurred as a result of manufacturers’ attempts to use as little Vinyl Ester Resin as possible, given its cost.
Leisure Pools® Composite Armour™ swimming pool is available with a full Vinyl Ester Resin Construction (excluding the Gelcoat Color Layer). Leisure Pools has taken this course of action in order to offer the following amazing benefits:
- Vinyl Ester Resin provides improved structural strength properties over traditional Polyester Resin, therefore enabling Leisure Pools® to offer a stronger swimming pool
- By constructing all layers after the Gelcoat Color with Vinyl Ester Resin, Leisure Pools® is able to offer a Lifetime Structural Osmosis Warranty
A swimming pool is something that should last a long time. Owners may spend tens of thousands of dollars on a swimming pool project, and in light of such, the swimming pool shell must last. Leisure Pools® Composite Armour™ swimming pool with full Vinyl Ester Resin Construction is another means by which to ensure quality and durability.
Leisure Pools® SMART Color Range
If you’re looking for something a little bit special – then this is the color range for you! These colors are given an added brilliance by having an inbuilt sparkle and shimmer effect. In different lights your pool will look like it has millions of diamonds scattered over the pool surface. Why do we call it SMART? Well this color range also features Nuplex Composite’s AQUAGUARD®ECO PLUS Gelcoat which exhibits strong antimicrobial behavior to inhibit the growth of bacteria at the gelcoat surface. This dramatically reduces the chance of algae growing in your pool.
So, the SMART Color Range not only looks good but is also good for you.
