What does the word “quality” mean to you?
The dictionary defines it like this: “The standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something.”
We really like that last part … “the degree of excellence of something.” For us, that something is fiberglass pools. At Thursday Pools, we’re so committed to having the highest degree of excellence in our fiberglass pools that we invited International Organization for Standardization, or ISO (that sets standards for excellence) to check out what we’re doing and rate us on it. And they’ve given us their seal of approval.
ISO 9001 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for a quality management system. The mission of the ISO is to “provide specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.” In order to be ISO 9001 certified, a manufacturer must allow a third-party organization to come in and routinely audit their organization to ensure they are following the standards set forth.
Some industries, such as construction and engineering, require suppliers to be ISO certified, either by law or contractually. Achieving the certification takes commitment, time, effort and expense, and no other fiberglass pool company in the United States is ISO 9001 certified. Thursday Pools is committed to producing the highest quality fiberglass pools and believes that implementing and being held accountable to the ISO standards will help ensure that’s always the case.
A lot of companies claim to have the “best quality” product. Sometimes it’s hard to know if that’s true. But in the fiberglass pool business, there’s just one company that has been certified in quality. That company is Thursday Pools, and they offer two industry-leading warranties to back that quality up. So, if you’re in the market for a new fiberglass pool, and quality matters to you, choose a Thursday Pools fiberglass pool. And enjoy years of worry-free pool ownership and a lifetime of memory-making fun.
In our fiberglass pool manufacturing facility in Fortville, Indiana, we create the world’s thickest, strongest, most durable, lowest maintenance and finely crafted fiberglass pools. In addition to our ISO 9001 certification, we are also ISO 14001 certified, which means we are as committed to environmental stewardship as we are to quality.
Thursday Pools is proud to introduce our latest innovation, the world’s first sunken living room fiberglass pool, which will be available to order in 2020. And our world’s first beach entry (or zero entry) fiberglass pools are now available in two designs; Grace and Sandal.
