Leisure Pools manufactures each composite fibreglass swimming pool using corrosive-resistant vinyl ester resin for each layer of the swimming pool construction*. As a result, Leisure Pools is able to offer a Lifetime Structural Warranty and Lifetime Structural Osmosis Warranty, making it the best available Warranty on the market today.


The primary ingredient in any fibreglass pool is resin. There are two different types of resin utilised today in fibreglass pool construction: polyester resin and vinyl ester resin.

Polyester resin is the cheaper, far less durable option for fibreglass pool construction. Vinyl Ester Resin is a high performance resin that provides improved strength properties and inhibits water penetration into the laminate, a process commonly referred to as Osmosis. To save on cost, most swimming pool manufacturers use primarily polyester resin, applying, at most, one single layer of vinyl ester resin.


The high ester content of polyester resin creates a swimming pool that is vulnerable to osmosis. Esters in the resin of a fibreglass pool are susceptible to breaking down, allowing water to penetrate through. Bubbles of trapped water and pressure continue to grow in-between structural layers of the pool shell. If this happens, in time, this process of delamination can lead to total structural failure.

Leisure Pools understands the importance of resin quality and uses 100% FULL VINYL ESTER RESIN throughout the build process. This means water cannot penetrate through any layer of the pool shell and compromise the structural integrity of the pool shell. This is how Leisure Pools is able to offer our Lifetime Structural Osmosis Warranty.

Vinyl Ester ResinEach Leisure Pools composite pools is comprised of 7 total layers
of cutting edge quality:

1. Gelcoat Color Layer
2. Vinyl Ester Resin Corrosive-Resistant Structural Laminate Layer
3. Vinyl Ester Resin Corrosive Resistant Structural Laminate Layer
4. Insulation Core Layer
5. Composite Armour™  Core of Strength Layer
6. Vinyl Ester Resin Corrosive-Resistant Structural Laminate Layer
7. Vinyl Ester Resin Corrosive-Resistant Barrier Layer

Leisure Pools has a patent pending to be the only company able to offer a swimming pool with a full Vinyl Ester Resin Construction. Leisure Pools have taken this course of action in order to offer the following amazing benefits:

• Vinyl Ester Resin provides improved structural strength properties over traditional Polyester Resin therefore enabling Leisure Pools to offer a stronger swimming pool.

• By constructing all layers after the gelcoat colour with Vinyl Ester Resin, Leisure Pools is able to offer a Life Time Structural Osmosis Warranty.


It is through investing in this level of quality that Leisure Pools can offer the you the best option to enjoy the life you deserve – free from worry with a higher security in your investment. What is the most important reason we do this? Simply put, it is the right thing to do.
