Fiberglass pools are our passion.

Our people take pride and satisfaction in a job well done. And innovation and continuous improvement are a constant thread in everything we do. We’re passionate about pools, so the details are super interesting to us. Wanna know what goes into our fiberglass pools?

MOLD IT.
MAKE IT PERFECT.

MOLD IT.
MAKE IT PERFECT.

A fiberglass pool’s overall quality is directly related to the mold that is used to produce it. All our molds have a complete steel substructure, and our pools are produced in a hospital-like, clean environment. This ensures a spotless finish and that your pool is laser straight, solid and built to last.

THERE'S STRENGTH
IN THE LAYERS.

THERE'S STRENGTH
IN THE LAYERS.

For illustrative purposes, we often describe our fiberglass pool shell as a “sandwich” made up of multiple layers that all serve to maximize the strength and durability of the entire structure. Although there are nine layers to every shell, some of the layers contain the same “ingredient.”

OH, SWEET HONEYCOMB CORE!

OH, SWEET HONEYCOMB CORE!

Thursday Pools adds vertical and horizontal supports throughout the pool by using a tubular construction method and a honeycomb core. This construction technique is applied to all horizontal surfaces such as steps, benches, and tanning ledges, as well as vertically, along the pool wall.

MORE FIBER IS GOOD FOR THE POOL’S DIET.

MORE FIBER IS GOOD FOR THE POOL’S DIET.

Fiberglass is combined with 100 percent resin and no fillers for several pool layers. Despite the cost and time involved, Thursday Pools uses both equipment-applied chopped fiberglass and hand-laid applied woven roving fiberglass to get the optimal physical properties that a best-in-class fiberglass pool requires.

TRUST US, VINYL ESTER IS A GOOD THING.

TRUST US, VINYL ESTER IS A GOOD THING.

Our vinyl ester barrier coat prevents potential blistering and protects the surface finish of your pool. We do not cut corners by adding fillers because adding any type of filler will decrease the structural properties and negatively affect the integrity of the surface.

SWEET GELLY! IT’S THE GEL COAT TO LOVE.

SWEET GELLY! IT’S THE GEL COAT TO LOVE.

Our pool surface gel coat is designed to last and look luxurious. It’s smooth, resistant to algae, and a dog’s claws won’t scratch it. Thursday Pools uses the highest quality gel coat on the market, so you can feel confident in your purchase knowing that your pool surface is one of the most tested and reputable on the market.

Strategic Partnerships

How do we build enduring value-added and structural features like our Composite Sandwich of Awesomeness? Or achieve such a fine, smooth surface that doesn’t snag swimsuits and cause scratches? Much of it has to do with our experience and diligence in cultivating the best possible strategic partnerships with suppliers and allied industries. Here are some of the partnership types we form:

  • Automatic safety covers providing convenience for pool owners and year-round safety for children and animals in pool areas. Additional benefits include heat retention, reduced chemical evaporation, and an overall cleaner pool.
  • Release agents and purging compounds that help us meet the quality standards we require for our molds.
  • High quality unsaturated polyester and vinyl ester resins, gel coats, and colorants.
  • Honeycomb core that provides for greater structural strength with less weight (perfect for our Composite Sandwich of Awesomeness).
  • Top-of-the-line glass fiber technology that ensures every layer of fiberglass meets the requirements for a best-in-class structure.

 

We partner with the best. It sometimes costs a little more upfront, but our experience affirms it is worth it in the long run. We prototype. We test. We patent! Whether it’s the Nine Layers of Strength, our innovative skimmers (custom-built for fiberglass pools) or our patented anchoring system, our engineers and partners are on a constant mission to innovate.
