    2. CaliMar Component Structure:
      • Top Rails
      CaliMar 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 top rails were measured using the same method, they would be 12” wide.

      • Liners
      The liners that come standard in the CaliMar 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.  The Truth About Above Ground Pool Liners
      Liners can be upgraded to 20 Mil.  20 Mil is equivalent to in ground pool vinyl liner thickness.
      • Bottom Rails
      Engineered with True-Fold design and thicker Premium Steel with a high end coating all a 100% Lifetime Warranty.

      • 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. Layers of wall protection shown below

      • Vertical Uprights
      Steel thickness is 25% thicker than the competition providing extra stability and strength to the pool wall.
      • Skimmer
      Large skim surface area removes surface debris faster than any other skimmer on the market. The tall mouth construction allows for greater pool water height fluctuations with a basket twice the size of many competitors.

      Vacuum port built into the lower face of the skimmer makes connection of vacuum hose or automatic pool vacuum much easier. Includes skimmer winterizing components and “skimmer door”.
