The Marathon – Lap Swimming Pool
Our Pools Are Designed to Impress
Wow! We’ve got the treat for you this week! Have you ever seen a gunite swimming pool, let a long a fiberglass swimming pool that has a length of 40′? That is a true engineering feat and it may be hard to understand the incredible achievement of it without a little background information!
We are always talking about the structural integrity of our swimming pools. If you’ve been keeping up with us for a while, we love to educate our customers on the difference between fiberglass pools and gunite. For our new readers (fiberglass followers excuse us), a gunite swimming pool is comprised of a steel reinforced frame with yards upon yards of concrete material known as gunite. They are very expensive and costly to build. Not just that, but they are prone to cracking and very rigid and susceptible to soil movements.
Our fiberglass shells, on the other hand are membranes with an average thickess of 3/8″ to 3/4″. This may not sound like a lot, but that’s because we use a totally different design and engineering standards. Our shells act as a membrane that separates the earth from the water. They are comprised of layers upon layers of fiberglass, proprietary vinyl Esther resin & additional reinforcement materials. Secondly, they are manufactured in an production facility and inspected before they ever leave the facility to your home. It’s an incredible task and one that we are very proud of!
A Whopping 40′ Long!
That being said, the Marathon fiberglass shell is a remarkable achievement in the fiberglass realm. The reason being, anytime you create a structure that is greater than 30′ long, you really have to look at reinforcement material to ensure increased strength and durability throughout its framework. Our Marathon swimming pool provides our swimmers with a gorgeous 40′ swimming basin that is perfect for lap swimming and recreational exercise.

The Strength of Our Shells
As we’ve already eluded to above, our fiberglass pool shells are the best on the market. San Juan Pools was the very first fiberglass pool manufacturer in the United States. We have completely revolutionized and defined the fiberglass pool industry. All other manufacturers merely mimic what we have already created and try to create their own unique spin off of our industry standards.
We’ve got more literature, pool shapes, and educational materials that any other manufacturer on the market. That’s why we’ve paired with San Juan Pools as our fiberglass pool manufacturer of choice! If you’d like to receive some additional information and see for yourself how amazing our pools are – read our Swimming Pool Catalog!
When you check out this catalog, go to page 10 and read the section about San Juan’s Superior Quality! Our swimming pools are comprised of 5 layers of hand-laid fiberglass and combined with Pure Vinyl Esther Resin.
In high-stress areas
there can be as many
as 15 layers of
fiberglass and resin. – San Juan Pools Catalog (page 10)
A Legacy of Excellence
Our Pure Vinyl Esther Resin is our key ingredient for the longevity of our swimming pools. Pure Vinyl Esther Resin prevents water molecules from combining with the Resin molecules (a process known as the Osmosis Effect). This effect plagued Fiberglass pools in the industries past, but we’ve revolutionized the industry yet again and innovated a new design that inhibits the osmosis effects and gives your swimming pool a greater lifespan!
Using innovating materials such as Pure Vinyl Esther Resin is all part of our desire to create a Legacy that our customers know and trust. At Fiberglass Pool Guyz, we are the only fiberglass dealer in Dallas & Fort Worth that is as open and transparent to write about our swimming pools and designs.
We believe that the industry is changing and our customers deserve to have a plethora of information at their fingertips. We want to become your swimming pool builder of choice and provide you with more information than any other dealer on the market! In fact, we’d love to meet you! If you’re curious about how our Fiberglass Pools are better than other swimming pools on the market, we’d love to meet you and help you see for yourself!
