Very seldom will you find an article in our blog that is about River Pools and Spas; the reason is because we are more interested in educating you about swimming pools in general. But last year and the year before we ran into a couple of problems and hopefully this article will help alleviate that this year. Due to our growth as a fiberglass pool company we are starting to fill the months of January, February, and March much quicker and therefore those who are hoping to have their pool installed by Memorial Day will call us in March or April and want to get on our schedule.

The purchase of a swimming pool is a huge investment. Buying a pool is not like buying a car; it is more like adding on an addition to your home. Most people purchase their first car before they are 18 years old and they do so with the help of a family member. During your lifetime you will purchase many cars where on the other hand you will probably only purchase one pool. Also when purchasing a car you can get quite a bit of advice from quite a few people, because almost everyone you know has owned more than one car. The same is not true with a pool. Even when talking with someone who has had or has a pool does not guarantee good advice, because that person has probably only owned one pool, which means that their knowledge is limited to just that.

When I first walked into the backyard of Chuck and Kristian Todd in Arlington, Virginia my first thought was, 'If this is going to happen, it'll have to be interesting.' In the end, it turned out to be quite interesting indeed, as you'll see in the following before and after video.
Although this photo might confuse you at first, it's showing a fiberglass display pool at our headquarters here in Warsaw Va. after some serious wind gusts that have been plaguing the state over the last couple of days. What normally is a pool shell on its side with the trailer as its base, mother nature decided to blow it over with some serious force behind it, causing the shell to slam to the ground.
