Why Leisure Pools are a More Environmentally-friendly Pool Option

Global warming has a significant and costly effect on our on communities, health and climate. NASA’s Earth Science Communication Team reports evidence of loss of sea ice, accelerated sea levels rising and longer, more intense heat waves. We can each do our part in protecting the environment, so when you decide to buy a swimming pool, you may have the environment in mind. At Leisure Pools, we seek to do our part to protect our planet from the consequences of global warming.

 

One of the wonderful benefits of choosing a Leisure Pools swimming pool is our SMART Color Range. We offer seven dazzling gelcoat colors to choose from for your swimming pool. These colors are not just brilliant for their look and UV and blister resistance, they’re also brilliant for being more environmentally friendly. Our color range features Nuplex’s Aquaguard®ECO gelcoat which is a new generation, high performance gelcoat combining advanced performance and dramatically reduced VOC emissions as a consequence of extremely low styrene content. That may send very technical, but in short, in order to effectively address global warming, we must significantly reduce the amount of heat-trapping emissions we are putting into the atmosphere like VOC. The Aquaguard®ECO gelcoat provides up to 50% less VOC emissions than traditional gelcoats used in fibreglass swimming pools making it better for the environment.

Low Chemical Usage

In addition to being better for the environment compared to traditional fiberglass swimming pools, Leisure Pools are have lower chemical usage.No one likes swimming in a chemical cocktail but some pools require constant monitoring and expensive chemicals. Not so with Leisure Pools fiberglass. The surface is chemically inert so there is nothing in the pool surface that can alter the water chemistry. Hence, our pools have very low chemical usage and considerable cost savings on running your pool.
