Caspian – One of three resin saltwater friendly pools offered by Pools Above Ground. This too is a great choice for those looking for a high end long lasting feature packed swimming pool. This resin hybrid is a big step up from the “all steel” pool models. Caspian also uses many resin components in its construction just like Mediterranean. Resin is a high grade plastic like material that lasts a long time and weathers very nicely. Because resin does not rust or corrode like metal, making non structural components from resin ensures a long part life. The solid resin components in this model are the injection molded 9″ top ledges, frame rails, stabilizer bar, base plates and top plates.
Stainless Steel –Caspian uses a stainless steel wall section where the skimmer and return openings are located in the pool wall. Because this area of the pool is the most common area for rust to take hold, making this wall section from stainless steel ensures the skimmer and return jet openings will never corrode. This is a huge step up from the basic steel wall pools.
Differences between Caspian and Mediterranean – Both of these pools are very nice 54″ resin hybrids and considered top of the line models. But there are key differences between the two. Caspian boasts wider top rails at 9″ versus Mediterranean’s 7″ rails, wider uprights posts that are resin and wider resin frame rails, resin top plates, resin upper stabilizer and resin base plates.
Saltwater Pools – Caspian is a great pool for the person thinking long term. An additional Caspian too is warrantied for use with a salt system. Today salt water systems for above ground pools are more popular than ever and it takes a hearty pool to stand up to the demands salt pools put on materials. Resin components everywhere and stainless steel wall panel ensures Caspian lives up to it’s billing as “top of the line”. Caspian can be used with salt, chlorine or other sanitizing systems. This great looking new model is sure to be a hit.
