FIBERGLASS POOL WARRANTIES

At Pool Pros we specialize in building fiberglass pools and are certainly not constitutional lawyers, so when it comes to the nitty gritty of fiberglass pool warranties we will stick with what the lawyers have drawn up and the manufacturers statements. There are alot of varying pool warranties out there but the good news is there is a federal law that requires all warranties to be clear and precise and provided to you prior to your purchase. Check out the Magnusson - Moss Act for more info.


THE MAGNUSSON-MOSS ACT

The Magnusson- Moss act is a Federal Law that was established to regulate warranty claims and make it easier for the avergae Joe to clearly understand what is and isnt included in a warranty. In a nut shell if a manufacturer provides a warranty for a product, they are required to provide that to you in a clear and easy to understand manner that is provided to you prior to your purchase so that you have the ability to compare it to other offerings. Seems like a good thing to me!


THE RIVER POOLS FIBERGLASS POOL WARRANTY UPDATE OF 2024

That brings us to the River Pools structural fiberglass pool warranty. We just received notification this morning on 3/22/24 that Thursday Pools/ River Pools have updated the warranty on the fiberglass pool shells to read as a 35 year warranty versus a limited lifetime warranty. From what we have been told the structural warranty is no longer "limited lifetime" since that is not a legally recognized term.  They now define the term as 35 years.


BIG DEAL or NOT SO MUCH?

While at first this might seem like a big deal, it really isnt. The changing of the terms clarifies the legality of the warranty and provides you clear and precise terms of the length of the warranty. To better clear the air on the changes to the River Pools Warranty we have inlcuded the full version right here so you can download and read it at your leisure.
