Inground Fiberglass Pool Owners Go Big With Lil Bob LX

lil bobLil Bob LX is what homeowners get when they want to go big and stay at home. 

Inground fiberglass pools are more popular than ever. They require less maintenance than other inground pool types, so you can fit more fun time into your day–and Lil Bob LX gives you the versatility to swim laps, soak in the sun, and enjoy a cool down with the beverage of your choice on one of the handy dual benches. 






Lil Bob LX is one of our most legendary pool designs.

It all started with its little brother, Lil Bob, and a big radio personality who is a legend in his own right. He was looking for a way to entertain a few of his friends while giving them ample room to sit in the pool and converse.  

Lil Bob LX delivers that and much more, with the addition of a tanning ledge that fits a larger group of friends than Lil Bob. Plus, the kids will have plenty of room for a game of hoops, giving a whole new meaning to dunking it poolside. With Lil Bob LX, you’ll make some great memories with a small or large group of friends who enjoy each other’s time.

Now let’s review the features that make this one of our favorite fiberglass pool designs for large backyards. 

    1. Tanning ledge. One of the most popular features of inground pools, Lil Bob LX’s tanning ledge gives you plenty of room to perch two Ledge Lounger® chaises. Even with two loungers on the ledge, swimmers have plenty of room to enter and exit the pool. The ledge is 12 inches deep, so if a 5’ 6” person is sitting on the tanning ledge, the water will come up mid-shin and just below the waist.lil bob
    2. Wading area. Staying cool in the hot summer sun and having ample room for friends or family to join you is the marquee feature of Lil Bob LX. Just past the tanning ledge is a wading area where parents can watch younger kids play who might not be quite ready for the deeper area of the pool.
    3. Wrap-around benches. Lil Bob LX’s elongated wrap-around benches provide plenty of room for your family and friends to gather and enjoy the water. The water will hit a 5’ 6” person just above the waist.lil bob
    4. Open swim or play area. The kids have plenty of room to float around, enjoy a game of water volleyball, basketball, or even swim laps down the center of the pool.
    5. Auto-cover ready. Automatic pool safety covers are a fabulous choice for fiberglass inground pool owners. They ensure that no one can enter the pool without your knowledge, reduce pool maintenance, and lower your maintenance costs.
    6. Walk-in steps and non-skid surface. All Thursday Pools fiberglass pool designs feature our exclusive gel coat finish. It’s non-skid, so you can be assured that swimmers of all ages can safely get in and out of the pool. It’s also impervious to algae, which means easier maintenance and fewer chemicals. Plus, it’s easy on swimmers’ bare feet, pet’s paws, and swimsuits!
