Stainless steel is virtually indestructible, with inherent long life properties that do not diminish over time or repeated use. Its superior strength, lightweight and structural durability are just a few characteristics’ when considering building an aquatic vessel. Stainless steel is a material highly resistant to corrosion and because of its chemical composition, the alloys can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions and chloride bearing environments.
The many customized values provided by a Tesoro aquatic vessel make it a strong candidate when determining the type of pool or spa that is used on a project. Often the values of a higher cost material such as stainless steel is overlooked over the total life of a project and ease of the installation methods.
With increasing demand for high levels of design and on site efficiency, Tesoro meets the challenges of complex, three dimensional unique designs. Our specialized fabricators cut, mold, custom fit and assemble each vessel suitable for installations below grade, above grade, suspended structures and those applications that do not support heavy loads. Our modernized fabrication techniques and material strength to weight advantages provide our clients with the most cost effective product for long term interior and exterior projects.
The aesthetic appearance of a Tesoro pool or spa and innovative design options gives new meaning to the phrase “freedom of choice”. Tesoro’s interior surface options can be personalized and tailored to reflect that perfect appearance. Special finishes include scratch patterns, etched blasting and tile applications.
The wear resistant surface of stainless steel and ease of cleaning leads the way for strict hygiene environments such as hospitals, kitchens, food processing plants and aquatic facilities. Stainless steel is a naturally hygienic material; it’s properties are beneficial in conditions applicable to use in a swimming pool, hot tub or plunge pool. Traditional pools and hot tubs have several joints and porous surfaces multiplying the risks of bacterial growth. The surface properties of stainless steel sheets goods and methods of joining the various parts greatly limit this occurrence. Leakage problems are a major concern in any water containment. This is particularly the case around water inlets and outlets in concrete pools and hot tubs. They are virtually impossible to fix and require an increasingly rare specialist to diagnose the leak or issue. Incorporated into our vessels are securely fastened input and output penetrations reducing the risk of bacteria and infiltration of chlorinated water.
Stainless steel is a material that is 100% recyclable at the end of its life and, in the construction industry, its effective reclamation rate amounts to 90%. Stainless steel is proven to be extremely environmentally friendly. The main reasons are, it uses primary energy sparingly, saves non-renewable sources and limits the waste stream. Tesoro’s manufacturing and assembly practices reduce plant and site nuisances by limiting harmful airborne contaminants, material waste and energy waste. The lightweight features of our vessels create a substantial reduction in concrete usage typically required for foundations and suspended structures. Stainless steels impact on the environment is minimal when compared to other materials and its long operating life make the material a significant component of sustainable development.
Tesoro stainless steel pools and spas are manufactured using the highest grade of stainless steel. The corrosion resistant high strength materials used to produce our vessels is easily backed by a 25 year warranty. Our unique vessels are built for longevity and maintain that attractive appearance for its long operating life.
