How is a Fiberglass Pool Made?

So how is the perfect pool constructed? Imagine Pools™ crafts composite fiberglass swimming pools with marine-grade technology and Centurion Core Construction.

Most importantly, quality begins at the core. Six layers of structural integrity, durability, and corrosion resistance are carefully constructed. What are these layers, and what purpose do they serve?

  1. Hand-Laid fiberglass – builds added strength and durability
  2. Structural insulation – improves thermal efficiency by enabling heat retention
  3. Premium grade vinyl ester resin – three high-performance layers improving structure while preventing osmosis.
  4. Gelcoat – top quality Gelcoat providing a smooth finish, with seven color choices.

Does the Color of Your Pool Make a Difference?

The color of your pool does more than add beauty. The “pool color” is a result of a Gelcoat finish.  However, this pool finish adds luster and creates a smooth finish to your newly installed pool.
Imagine Pools™ carefully selected seven radiant colors to set the mood and beauty of your swimming pool. Much thought went into how each pool color would reflect both natural and artificial light.

In terms of setting a mood, pool colors do make a difference. They add sparkle and shimmer to your outdoor oasis. As a result, each color can create an entirely different experience.

  • Ocean blue – refreshing, cool; sparkles and shines in the sun
  • Reef blue – calm, tranquil, and smooth
  • Storm grey – classic, youthful, and carefree
  • Ice silver – modern, crisp, and reflects the sun in rays of color
  • Volcanic black – contemporary, light refracting, and shiny
  • Coral blue – exotic, unique, and adventurous
  • Beach sand – clear, clean, and transparent, therefore, transforms well with lights and color
