LARGE AMERICAN FIBERGLASS POOL BREAKS THE MOLD!
American Fiberglass Pools is the only fiberglass pool manufacturer that chose almost 8 years ago to hang a shingle on VERY LARGE fiberglass pools. These American Fiberglass Pool models I mention are available in diving and non-diving models. Let’s examine each model that I speak of a little closer.
The Frio is a true giant within the fiberglass pool industry. This model is exclusive to American Fiberglass Pools. The pool is 42 FEET long at the longest inside length and 18 FEET inside width at the widest point. This makes the actual pool shell a whopping 43’ X 19’. Truly you can take any other fiberglass pool manufactured by another company and put it inside the Frio without touching the Frio’s walls. This pool can easily handle a 6’ diving board or diving rock.
Sum it up in one word, ENORMOUS! The Guadalupe has inside dimensions of 43 FEET long and 19 FEET wide. The Guadalupe is 3 1/2 feet to 5 1/2 feet in depth. This pool is exclusively offered by American Fiberglass Pools. It is impossible to purchase another fiberglass pool with as much swim area as the Guadalupe. Need a pool that will never be too small? The Guadalupe is the pool for you!
THE RIO GRANDE
The Rio Grande is the largest river in Texas. The American Fiberglass Pool model Rio Grande is a diving capable pool that is only eclipsed by our model Frio for swimming square footage and old fashion elbow room. The Rio Grande was the very 1st American Fiberglass Pool design offered all the way back to 1971. It has been copied by several competitors over the years without our permission. This is called “splashing” in the fiberglass business. The Rio Grande is capable of having a 6’ diving board installed on it meaning endless hours of fun in a 17 FEET wide and 35 FEET long swim area.
THE RIO BRAVO
This model was introduced in 2006 as a non-diving cousin of the Rio Grande. Still 17 FEET wide and 35 FEET long but minus the diving well of its older cousin, the Rio Grande. Perfect for water volleyball and all the aquatic games that take place in a pool full of kids (or kid wannabees), the Rio Bravo has become one of our very best selling models since its introduction 6 years ago. The Rio Bravo is offered exclusively by American Fiberglass Pools.
All other fiberglass pool manufacturers tend to sell their pool on exterior dimensions. (Example: a 16 x 34 is actually a 15 x 33 on the inside or swimming area.) Don’t be fooled into buying a smaller pool than you were told by a salesperson or brochure from a competitor of American Fiberglass Pools.
You know I am often asked how we transport these larger pools from state to state. Well, we have special trailers and loading techniques that allow us to be legal in almost every state. Amazingly, American Fiberglass Pools are so strong that they can be shipped on their side if necessary. Ask fiberglass pool manufacturers if their product will meet that challenge!!
