We have signed our pool contract for a San Juan Pool back in June. After deciding on the model and signing the contract we were able to get a copy of the warranty and found out that SJ offers no coverage on the gel coat.
We are a little concerned about this and are thinking of changing pool manufacturers to Leisure pools who have coverage on the gel coat.
For those of you who have SJ pools, have you had any issues at all with the gel coat? Any blistering or bubbling, pitting, cracks etc? How old is your pool? I know SJ is the original manufacterer of fiberglass pools, so I take some comfort in that. We did visit some of our PB's installs, all were SJ and all looked great. The oldest was 4 yrs old and the finish looked fine. I am wondering how common it is to have issues with the gel coat. I didn't not see any pools older than 4yrs. I am just wondering what these pools look like after 10yrs. I really like the model of pool we have chosen from SJ. Leisure is also more $ for a smaller pool. My DH is thinking go with the better warranty coverage since we are going to have this pool a long long long time. I just don't know.
Thanks for your help.
Oh we sold our current pool on the weekend and they pick it up in Sept...getting ready for our Oct install I guess I should start taking the before pics.
