It’s not just a pool!

It’s a pre-fabricated, hand crafted, vinyl wrapped assembly of refreshing awesomeness!

When the design team at Secard Pools took an east coast engineering marvel and blended it with a little west coast flair, the Islander pool was born. Our goal was to bring an original and fully customizable pool to the masses at an affordable price. The Islander pool is just that.

Details

What is an Islander Pool?

The Islander pool is a pre-fabricated, vinyl liner swimming pool. Its look resembles that of a tropical island, in that a small portion of the pool peeks above the surface. 18” to be exact. The remaining shallow and deep end depths are excavated into the ground up to 10 feet.

Islander Pools are pre-fabricated?

Pre-fabricated does not mean limited. A great deal of the Islander pool is constructed in our 140,000 square foot factory in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. The rest is done right outside your back door. It’s this prefabrication method that allows us to speed up the construction process and cut down on unnecessary costs to our customers. There are no limits to the size, and few limitations to the shapes we can build.

Islander Pools use vinyl?

Yes, vinyl! Vinyl swimming pools originated on the east coast to offer an option that could better flex with the ground’s freeze/thaw cycles. See, when the ground freezes, gunite (concrete) pools tend to crack. Nowadays vinyl pools make up a large percentage of all pools built east of the Mississippi. Here in the Golden state, we adopted vinyl for its flexibility, affordability and the big one its earthquake resistant! Yep, I said it, earthquake resistant. The Islander pool has been proven to stand up against shakers up to a 7.5 magnitude with no damage.

Vinyl (a natural insulator) also tends to keep pools 5 – 10 degrees warmer throughout the year. Additionally, because vinyl is a non porous surface it’s much easier to clean. There’s no need to ever acid wash, or feel the burn of scrubbing stains as you do in a concrete pool. The soft nature of vinyl is probably one of its best claims to fame. Have you ever used a slip and slide? Wet it down, run, jump and glide down to the cool abyss at the end of the mat with an ear to ear grin. Now try bellowing down the sidewalk head first in a swim suit and you’ll understand.

Installation

The Islander Pool installation process:

Consultation

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. That’s a great quote but we feel that actually touching a product is worth a million. While we’re very proud of ourselves for this website and all of the pretty pictures, we really want you to meet our products face to face. We have an Islander pool on display at every one of our 10 locations. Touch it, feel it, swim in it! Once you’ve dried off, one of our representatives will discuss information with you that will help us in the design process such as potential size, layout, available options, and financing plans.

Hide

On Site Design

One of our expert designers will come to your home to meet with you for the next step in the design process. We’ll measure the yard, consider the location for sunlight and usability and narrow down what best meets your vision.

Hide

Plans & Permits

Once we’ve determined your desired options, details and features, site and engineering plans will be drafted specific to your design. These plans will aid us in working with you through the permit process as well as a schematic for the construction of your new pool. At this point you will also be connected with our construction department to discuss the schedule for your project. All Islander pools are guaranteed to be completed within 45 working days from excavation.

Hide

Breaking Ground

Ready, set, dig! This is the first phase in the actual construction process at your home. Demolition, grading and excavation of the pool interior can typically be completed in 1-2 days.

Hide

Structural Assembly and Plumbing

In this phase, we will assemble the “peak of the tropical island” as explained earlier, otherwise known as the wall assembly. We will also trench and run all plumbing and any lighting options.

Hide

Rock and Water Features

If you have chosen to add any rock or water features such as waterfalls, cascades or rock facades, they will be constructed at this time.

Hide

Just Add Water!

Once the liner is installed, your pool really starts to take on a personality. The
vibrant colors of the liner and the glistening fresh water are going to beg for
cannonballs and backstrokes.

Hide

Finishing Touches

Once we’ve finalized the installation process and fine tuned everything, your representative will come to your home to do a final consultation. We arm you with all of the necessary tools to maintain your pool, up to a 3 month supply of chemicals and walk you through every component of the pool and their operation.

We don’t leave until you have a strong confidence of your pools functions and maintenance practices. Additionally, with the purchase of your new pool comes unlimited free lifetime water testing. Just bring a sample of your pool’s water to any of our retail locations and we will analyze it to help you keep your pool sparkling for many years.

Enjoy!

Now you’re ready. Light the bar-b-q, kick on the stereo and dust off your snorkel. It’s time for your first pool party.
