Analyzing the Pool Components:
  • Top Rails
The Chesapeake above ground pool models all are stronger empty than many other above ground pools are when they’re full. The top rails are a true 8” across measuring from edge to edge. Other manufacturers that claim to be 8” wide are measuring around the circumference of the top rail. If the Chesapeake top rails were measured using the same method, they would be 12” wide.

  • Liners
The liners that come standard in the Chesapeake models are True 15 mil liners, not gauge. Gauge is a matter of subjection and any manufacturer can set their gauge to whatever suits their marketing needs. Mil is an exact international precise measurement for measuring thickness. Measurement is done with a micrometer and all of the liners packaged with the CaliMar® pools are a True 15 Mil Thickness. The liners are about 20% heavier than other liners on the market because of the true nature of the virgin vinyl material and zero use of plasticizers and fillers. Due to the superior strength and integrity of these liners we offer a Lifetime 100% Warranty against seam separations.
  • Bottom Rails
Engineered with True-Fold design and thicker Premium Steel with a high end coating all Chesapeake above ground pools have a 100% Lifetime Warranty*. Doughboy Above Ground Pools Bottom Rails
  • Component Connection Points
All connection points on Chesapeake pools are precision punched holes so there is only one way the pool can be assembled, making assembly quicker and easier. Other above ground pools have “oval” shaped holes which allow too much variance causing imperfect fit and weakens the strength of the pool. Doughboy Above Ground Pool Top Rail Comparison
  • Walls
Made from heavier copper bearing steel than industry standards making them 30-60 lbs heavier than other manufacturer models pools. Zinc clad hot-dipped galvanized steel walls receive several protective coatings and a specifically designed epoxy coating providing the best defense against corrosion and condensation. Industry’s thickest corrugation offers industry’s greatest strength and flexibility.
