In 1988, Leisure Pools was founded in Australia by industry veteran Kerry Pain. The company has been heavily involved in the development of fiberglass swimming pools during the past twenty years. Technologies for Australian fiberglass swimming pools, where fiberglass pools have greater than 50% market share, have achieved a world-class level with innovations in design, materials and manufacturing processes.
Thanks to its manufacturing technology, Leisure Pools in Australia is one of the top three pool manufacturers of fiberglass swimming pools. The company dipped its toe in the U.S. waters in 2002. By 2003, Leisure Pools had established a permanent American headquarters and shipped its first load of fiberglass pools to the U.S. Due to demand from consumers who were beginning to hear about the quality of Leisure Pools they needed a way to produce more pools. So in 2008 they opened a fiberglass pool Super Plant in New Braunfels, TX (just north of San Antonio). This Super Plant is the largest and most modern fiberglass pool manufacturing facility in the world and has been designed with the ability to build 5,000 pools annually. Today Leisure Pools is one of the top two pool manufactures in the United States in regards to volume and is the industry leader in the quality of pools that they produce.
One of the many reasons we our proud to offer Leisure Pools is because of the high quality Aquaguard ® Gel-Coat that they use as well as the molds that they use to build their pools. When a fiberglass pool manufacture decides to add a new shape into their product line it starts with a plug. A plug is essentially an exact scale model of the pool built out of wood. For many companies this is a relativly quick process as they get it through this stage as quick as possible in order to be able to sell it. With Leisure Pools they spend as much time and money as needed to make sure the plug they build is absolutely perfect. Once the plug is complete a mold is then built off of that plug. It is essential to spend the time and money to perfect the plug prior to producing the mold because the mold that is built will only be as good as the plug that was used to build it. Once the mold is compete then a fiberglass pool can be built off of that mold. So then the fiberglass pool shell that is built is only as good as the mold that it was built off of. Below you will see all of the different shapes that Leisure Pools offers. Simply click on a shape and you will then be taken to a page to show you all of the different sizes available in that specific shape.
