Smart Control System
Unfortunately the word “Quality” has been over used these days to the point where it has become just noise in a company’s marketing.
Leisure Pools has created the Leisure Pools Technical Center to add to the research, development and testing of all Leisure Pools products. Leisure Pools is the only company to have invested heavily into this level of quality control, and have done so because in order to provide a Lifetime Structural Warranty we need to ensure that we are at the top of our game in the product that we provide.
Whilst a great deal of technical information is on offer to you, what you must really take from this is to decide whether the swimming pool shell that you are looking to install in your home will last the test of time. A swimming pool is a great investment both for your family and the value of your property however it is important not to assume all pools are the same as they are not.
With Leisure Pools you are purchasing a swimming pool that will last.
A number of years ago Leisure Pools invested in creating the Leisure Pools Technical Center. This Center was designed in order to provide a facility for both continued research and development as well ensuring that each Leisure Pools swimming pool is manufactured to the highest standard.
QA TestingThe Leisure Pools Technical Center is managed by Leisure Pools Technical Manager, Dr David Rogers. Dr Rogers is a polymer chemist with a PhD in resin chemistry. If you purchase a Leisure Pool, have confidence that Dr Rogers and his staff would have tested your swimming pool to ensure that it meets all of Leisure Pools stringent internal quality control checks.
The Leisure Pools Technical Center also works with Universities with an on-going program of mentoring University Students in the field of composites.
Leisure Pools has an ongoing goal of continuing to innovate in the exciting field of composites not only for swimming pools but also other composite applications.
Rather than say that our swimming pools are a quality swimming pool we would prefer to explain what our Quality Program entails.
Tech CenterLeisure Pools has on staff a Polymer Chemist who manages the Leisure Pools Technical Center.
Leisure Pools ensures quality of incoming raw materials by batch testing against benchmarked materials using an FTIR Spectrometer.
Leisure Pools Technical Center cuts a section out of every swimming pool manufactured (where the skimmer box of the pool is located) to undertake the following tests:Leisure Pools weighs all materials to ensure correct quantities have been applied to each swimming pool.
- Flexural and Tensile Strength Test
- Cure Percentage Tests of each Layer
- Barcol Hardness Testing
- Boil Testing of Laminates (random samples)
- Burn Testing of Laminates (random samples)
Leisure Pools uses an Ultra Sonic Thickness Testing device to thickness test the swimming pool in multiple key locations over the swimming pool to ensure compliance against the Leisure Pools Benchmark.
