Chesapeake above ground pools are best described as Bigger, Better,
Stronger, Longer Lasting above ground pools. CaliMar's Chesapeake model
pool features a Super Deep 54" wall, True 8" Top Rails
and is stronger empty than most other pools are when they are full.
High end resin materials make this pool Stronger and is assured to last
Longer with the industry's longest 8 Year Full-100% warranty and additional 22 year Pro-Rated Warranty.
After extensive research and defining just what the characteristics
that make up a quality above ground pool are, we determined there is no
other above ground pool manufacturer that could make this pool than
H.I.I. They manufacture, Lomart, Embassy, Doughboy and now CaliMar above
ground pools at thier plant in Northeastern Arkansas. CaliMar pools are
made with the exact same materials and using the same exacting
standards as Doughboy pools. We’ve taken the best of the best of what we
know to work hand in hand with H.I.I. to architect and design a series
of above ground pools that break the mold and set new Chesapeake
standards in the swimming pool industry. When you think Chesapeake,
think Doughboy. You'll be glad you did.
Analyzing the Pool Components:
The CaliMar above ground pool models are stronger empty than
many other above ground pools are when they’re full. The top rails are a
true 8” across when measuring from edge to edge. Other manufacturers
that claim to be 8” wide are measuring around the circumference of the
top rail. If the CaliMar top rails were measured using the same method, they
would be over 12” wide.

The pool liners which are standard in the CaliMar pool packages are True Mil
thickness liners and not gauge thickness.
Why does that matter?
Gauge is a matter of subjection and any
manufacturer can state their gauge thickness to be whatever suits their
Mil is an exact international measurement for measuring thickness. This
measurement is only done using a micrometer. All of the liners packaged
with the CaliMar® pools are Mil thickness liners. Thus, CaliMar pool
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, they all come with a Lifetime 100% Warranty
against seam separations. Learn more about liners, The Truth About Pool Liners

Made from a heavier copper bearing steel than the
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 the industry’s greatest strength
and flexibility. Layers of wall protection shown below
The steel thickness in the uprights is 25% thicker than the competition providing extra stability and strength to the pool wall.
Large skim surface area removes surface debris faster than any
other skimmer on the market. The tall mouth construction allows for

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”.
