Hercules is the ultimate panel wall pool made of the finest quality materials. It is built with solid insulated panels that are much stronger than polymer, steel, and concrete. Its 3″ thick walls have a 2-lb. density while other similar pools have 2″ walls with a 1-lb. density. Hercules has an all-aluminum, extra heavy-duty, anodized frame that is ideal for above, semi, and in-ground applications. It is proudly made in the USA, using the same engineering technologies that build various airplanes, skyscrapers, and spacecraft.
Maximum Heat Retention
Maximum heat retention is a key feature of Hercules. Its walls have an expanded polystyrene thermal insulated inner core with a double outer layer of Galvalume skin. It is the only swimming pool wall that has a continuous thermal run and an R-15 (insulation) value. This insulation value is 50% greater than other panel wall pools that have an R-10 value. As a result, Hercules offers significant savings on heating costs.
Easy assembly is a notable advantage of our Hercules pool. The smart design of Hercules is highly installer-friendly. All walls, corner posts, and buttresses come preassembled, reflecting our commitment to innovation and simplicity for the benefit of the end user. Assembling the Hercules swimming pool requires only 8 steps, and it actually stands up during the erection process. In fact, Hercules can be installed by just one person, resulting in significant cost savings on installation.
The Hercules swimming pool offers a maintenance-free experience. It is designed to resist oxidation, ensuring it will not rust or tarnish. Additionally, the pool will never warp or crack. Thanks to its noncorrosive properties, the Hercules pool requires minimal maintenance. It is built to withstand extreme weather conditions, providing durability and longevity.
Upscale Aesthetic Appeal
The Hercules swimming pool boasts an upscale aesthetic appeal. Its neutral polar white color is carefully chosen to complement and enhance all landscapes and backyard terrains. The elegant and versatile appearance of the Hercules pool adds a touch of sophistication to any outdoor environment.
Our commitment to energy efficiency, sustainability, and environmental responsibility is clearly demonstrated in the Hercules swimming pool. The insulating panels used in this pool have earned points based on the requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system. Furthermore, the pool is qualified under the National Institute of Standards and Technology's BEES program (Building for Economic and Environmental Stability). These certifications reflect our dedication to creating an environmentally-friendly product that aligns with industry standards for energy efficiency and sustainability.
One of the advantages of Hercules above and semi inground swimming pools is the potential tax incentives they offer. Unlike swimming pools installed with concrete, which are considered permanent structures and subject to annual assessments and increased real estate taxes, Hercules pools are classified as temporary structures. Since they do not require cement for installation, they are exempt from the aforementioned real estate taxes typically associated with permanent swimming pools. This can lead to potential savings and financial benefits for pool owners.
Transferable Lifetime Warranty
The Hercules swimming pool is constructed using top-quality materials and proven manufacturing methods, reflecting our proud dedication and years of experience. We have utmost confidence in the strength, durability, and longevity of Hercules, which is why we offer our customers a fully transferable lifetime warranty. This warranty ensures that our customers can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their investment is protected for the entire lifespan of the pool, and it can be transferred to new owners if the property changes hands.
The Hercules swimming pool offers a wide range of upgrades and options to suit your preferences. You can enhance your pool area with features such as concrete walkways, pavers, swimming pool lights, walk-in steps, walk-out stairs, and more.
Additionally, there are unlimited deck options available to further customize your Hercules swimming pool. These options provide flexibility and allow you to create a unique and personalized swimming pool area that meets your specific needs and aesthetic preferences.
Upgraded Pool Liner
With your Hercules pool, you will receive an upgraded 25 mil swimming pool liner. The Perma 25 liner is constructed with the highest grade material and includes extra UV inhibitors. This provides maximum resistance to chemicals, bacteria, sunlight, fungus, and cold cracking. The liner is made of 100% virgin vinyl and comes with a 25-year manufacturer's warranty. This ensures that your pool liner is durable, long-lasting, and designed to withstand various environmental factors, providing you with peace of mind and ensuring the longevity of your pool's liner.
If you desire a deep end for your Hercules swimming pool, you have the option to order a hopper liner. Hopper liners are specifically designed to accommodate pools with a deep end. They are installed according to a special diagram that provides precise dimensions for excavation of the pool hole. The hopper liner is then custom-made to conform precisely to the specifications outlined in your dig sheet. This ensures a proper fit and alignment of the liner, resulting in a seamless and well-fitted pool design. The hopper liner option allows you to create a swimming pool with a deep end that meets your specific requirements and preferences.
When it comes to custom design, your Hercules pool can be manufactured to order. Using 4 ft panels, we can customize any rectangular size for your pool project, accommodating variations in length or width within 4 ft increments. Simply let us know the specific size requirements for your pool, and we will tailor it accordingly to meet your needs.
In terms of decking options, your Hercules pool can be ordered with decking included. The decking is easy to install and can be painted, stained, or shellacked to achieve the desired aesthetic. Additionally, self-closing, self-latching, lockage gates are provided for added safety and convenience. If you require a custom deck, we can also accommodate that in 4 ft increments. The decks are manufactured using strong treated lumber, similar to the materials used in house balconies and outdoor patio decks, ensuring durability and longevity.
Installation options for Hercules pools offer great flexibility. You have the choice to install the pool 100% above ground, following a traditional in-ground pool installation, or partially inground. This versatility allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. With a Hercules pool, you get the quality and durability typically associated with a traditional in-ground pool, but at a more affordable price point similar to that of an above-ground pool. This gives you the opportunity to customize the installation to suit your preferences, budget, and the specific layout of your backyard.
The Hercules Pool Solution
The Hercules pool option is particularly suitable for backyards with uneven ground, steep hills, slopes, or any other features that would make a traditional pool installation challenging or even impossible. The semi-inground option provides a practical solution for pool owners who need to meet specific city, town, or neighborhood pool height requirements. By choosing the Hercules pool, you can overcome terrain obstacles and comply with regulations while still enjoying the benefits of having a beautiful and functional swimming pool in your backyard.
The Hercules pool serves as an affordable alternative to a traditional inground pool, making it an attractive option for those looking to enjoy the benefits of a swimming pool without the higher cost. In addition to being more budget-friendly, the Hercules pool is also easier to install compared to a traditional inground pool. Its versatility and adaptability make it suitable for various backyard conditions and terrain.
Moreover, the Hercules pool can be an excellent choice for homeowners who have strict homeowner association (HOA) guidelines or regulations. Its design and installation flexibility can help meet HOA requirements while still providing a high-quality and visually appealing pool option for homeowners.
Overall, the Hercules pool offers an accessible, convenient, and compliant solution for homeowners seeking a swimming pool that is both affordable and easy to install.
The Hercules pool offers the same shape options as an above-ground pool, providing flexibility in terms of design and aesthetics. If you desire a pool that seamlessly blends with your landscape and surroundings, the semi-inground option is an excellent choice. By partially burying the pool, it creates a more harmonious and integrated appearance compared to a typical above-ground pool. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of an above-ground pool while achieving a more visually appealing and natural look that complements your landscape. The semi-inground option of the Hercules pool offers the best of both worlds by combining convenience, affordability, and enhanced aesthetics.
