|You really can not start talking about the lasting durability of a portable pool without first talking about the liner. Afterall, the liner is what makes the pool portable. The liner is what makes the pool so easy to assemble. The liner material is what allows you to drain the pool, take it down and store it away during the winter without any damage to the pool liner. The liner material is what allows you to leave the pool up and let it freeze solid if you want to. Our liner material is so amazingly strong, that in the rare event you get a puncture - you can seal it with just a little dab of Vaseline. Check It Out and See >>|
|Now, if this is your first time to read about a portable pool, allow us to give you a little more detail as to how far superior our EZ Pool liner material is compared to the old vinyl liners of traditional above-ground pools. First off, See for Yourself How Durable Our Portable Pools Really Are >>
First, the Seaman Corp starts with polyester thread. Polyester is durable, strong and long-lasting. In fact, this polyester thread is so strong, the fishing industry has been using it for years to catch some really big fish with it. This polyester thread is hair thin - yet each strand can hold almost 5 pounds of weight. Then they braid 1,000 of these hair thin threads together to create what the industry calls a 1000 denier strand. Then they criss-cross the strands together into a woven scrim. 18 strands acrossl and 18 up and down (18 x 18 scrim). The water weight of our pool is about 250 pounds per square foot. This material can hold almost ten times that.
This poly-reinforced vinyl liner material is so durable, it actually resists ripping and tearing. The criss-crossed woven material works much like a chain-link fence. If you cut a couple of links, you can still only open it just a little ways. The resistance is shared by the neighboring links (just on a much smaller scale).

|This polyester woven core is then encased in several layers of specially formulated UV-treated vinyl coating. This material has proven to be so durable that it is used today with military inflatable boats, giant tents, trucking tarps and even those giant blimps you see floating over thousands of spectators at sporting events. Oh yeah, we are talking real durable.|
|We also use the very best steel. Though the liner material makes up a good 80% of the whole pool, it will not work without an equally durable frame support. The steel we use is 13g, 2.5 O.D. and has five layers of protection. According to Allied Steel, the raw unpainted steel can endure 10 years of salt spray exposure before you would see any surface rust. We add an extra layer of powder-coating just to help out.
The all steel frame we use is so durable and so strong that it can not only support the weight of the water inside the pool, it can support you standing on it, hanging on it, - in fact, it can withstand you and a couple of your friends hangin on it, pushing off it - heck, the pool frame is so strong, invite the whole neighborhood to hang on it. Of course, once you set up the pool and start filling - the whole neighborhood will be in it anyways.
|It's really not fair to say that are pools are better than eveybody else's, the fact is, if you have read our history, you can see that pretty much everybody involved with portable pools started from the same place. No, there are some good pools out there. What we can claim is that we have better selection, better consistency in quality, better options, and better overall experience. So when you buy an EZ Pool, you're not just getting a really great portable swimming pool - your getting eveything that makes it a really great portable pool and that's priceless.|
