Highest Quality Raw Materials
Thursday Pools are fiberglass pool manufacturers that use the very best raw materials. Our gel coats, resins, fiberglass and structural cores are from the best suppliers in the industry. Thursday Pools Design and Quality departments have tested and approved each supplier because of the excellent materials, not because of low cost.
We utilize laser alignment equipment in mold construction.
Infrared thermo imaging is used to measure the exothermic reaction of each layer of resin/fiberglass applied.
Ultrasonic measurement is used to measure the thickness of each pool produced in 20 locations.
Load cell is used to measure the weight of each pool produced.
Our inground fiberglass pool shells are constructed of the highest quality materials.

This is fiberglass that is produced in North America and is Boron-free. Advantex® uses less energy to manufacture and ship.

Why Fiberglass Swimming Pools?
1. Speed of Installation
Your fiberglass swimming pool comes direct from the Imagine Pools manufacturing facility, pre-made and ready to install. In fact, you can be swimming in as little as 4 days after council approval. Compare that to a concrete pool that can take months to complete and during that time your backyard looks a mess!
2. Smooth Finish
Imagine Pools fiberglass swimming pools have a smooth clean gelcoat finish that is non-abrasive. There are no sharp edges or rough finishes. Compare that to some pebble pools that are so abrasive they can harm your skin.
3. Maintenance Free
The gelcoat finish on an Imagine Pool not only looks great, its so easy to look after. The surface is smooth and non-porous so it cleans easily and is very stain resistant.
4. Low Chemical Usage
No one likes swimming in a chemical cocktail but some pools require constant monitoring and expensive chemicals. Not so with Imagine Pools fiberglass, the surface is chemically inert so there is nothing in the pool surface that can alter the water chemistry. Hence, very low chemical usage and considerable cost savings on running your pool.
5. Surprising Strength
Imagine Pools fiberglass pools exceed the Australian Standards for shell thickness. The high tensile strength of fiberglass will allow the pool shell to flex without cracking to accommodate earth movement. No wonder airplane manufacturers are using fiberglass to build planes!
6. Great Designs
Imagine Pools prides itself on being at the cutting edge of pool design technology. All of our swimming pool shapes are new designs and reflect today’s thinking and architectural trends. There will be a Imagine Pools design to ideally suit your home.
7. Color Range
Imagine Pools offers an exclusive range of seven beautiful colors, each with its own sparkle and shimmer finish, ensuring you will be able to find the perfect color to suit your home, taste and budget.
8. The Right Choice
Sometimes what we see in our minds doesn’t always translate to the pool builder. With Imagine Pools fiberglass swimming pools, what you see is what you get. The swimming pool shapes and sizes come off molds and cannot vary in anyway.
Salt chlorinators, chlorine, fresh water systems, ozone systems all work wonderfully well with Imagine Pools fiberglass swimming pools. Whatever your choice may be it will be compatible.
If you are getting other quotes, ask if a lifetime warranty is being provided on the structure of the swimming pool. At best with a concrete swimming pool you will get a 7 year warranty – do you hope to have your pool longer than 7 years?
