When Leisure Pools® set out to create the Ultimate™ swimming pool range, we wanted a design that would meet and exceed the homeowner’s expectations of what a pool should be.
Designers began with the idea of what would be considered fashionable and chic – defined by straight lines and square angles. As a result, The Ultimate™ lives up to its name in size and convenience, while still offering some of the most sought-out, practical features you could have on a swimming pool.
Leisure Pools® wanted a design that was versatile with realistic expectations for use. The Ultimate™ range has a large, open corridor and gradual slope that can accommodate a variety of activities, from the avid swimmer looking for an area to exercise and swim laps to the perfect arena for playing water games with family and friends.
There is no feature more appealing than a built-in spa that integrates seamlessly into the overall pool design. The built-in spa has the option to either run off the pool filtration system or operate through a separate filtration system and heating unit. We even added some clever overflow channels with two spillover ledges, through which water cascades into the pool, creating a beautiful waterfall effect.
There was only one feature left to add to ensure this pool reached its ultimate potential – a large, shallow splash deck on which to lounge in the sun or play with the little ones. These ledges are one of the most popular innovations trending in the swimming pool industry today.
Leisure Pools® is confident you will find this pool to be the perfect addition to your backyard.
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.
