Doughboy Above Ground Pools fall into one of two categories: steel or resin. These materials apply to the top rails and verticals. While both are equally durable and aesthetically appealing, there are some subtle differences in their compositions.
Doughboy Steel Frame Pools consist of better-than-industry-standard gauge steel, which is about 50% heavier than the steel used by competing brands. The steel in the pool’s top rails and verticals undergoes a 7-step coating process to ensure optimal strength and corrosion resistance.
Our Resin Frame Swimming Pools are similar in durability and appearance to our steel frame pools. The difference is that the frames are composed of an extruded resin material. Resin is an attractive material that is rust-proof, chip- and blemish-resistant, and extremely durable, making it another ideal material for swimming pools.
Hydrosphere Series Semi-Onground Pools
When you want to recess a pool 24” or more feet into the ground, a model from our Hydrosphere Series is the perfect solution. The walls, floor, and braces of these semi-inground pools are made from quality American-Made steel and feature Poly Shield Protection, giving them inground pool strength that holds up against outside pressure. Furthermore, they are
- Impact Resistant
- Chemical Resistant (including salt)
- UV Resistant
- Energy Efficient through thermal conductivity
Made in America for Over 75 Years
Our journey began with Domain Industries, a company whose packing machinery operation first gained worldwide recognition during World War I for perfecting the rubber sealing techniques that was used to package food rations for American Soldiers (nicknamed The “Doughboys”).
In 1947, the company rebranded its packaging machinery operation as The Doughboy Plastics Division and entered the realm of outdoor family entertainment. What began as an operation that produced inflatable splasher pools, beach balls, and toys evolved into America’s leading source of high-quality above-ground pools, recessed pools, and lap pools.
We are proud to enrich the backyard living market with American-made products, available from an authorized Doughboy Dealer or Doughboy Customer Service, while providing American jobs. We continue to create pioneering product designs and develop innovative solutions thanks to our state-of-the-art engineering and production methods. Our team of dedicated professionals operates with a family-oriented philosophy whether it’s in production, sales, or management.

Pool Safety is Always the Top Priority at Doughboy!
No one takes the issue of pool safety more seriously than Doughboy Pools. In fact, our comprehensive safety promotion program, which was devised in collaboration with the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), has become the standard for the entire above-ground pool industry.
At Doughboy Pools, we promote pool safety by providing…
- pool safety education materials to all of our dealers
- a pool safety packet (containing all signs, liner decals, a “Read me First for Pool Safety” handbook, and Safety DVD) with every pool we sell.
- The 6 Rules of Pool Safety on our website, in print materials, and in videos.
We want you to enjoy your above ground pool and be safe doing it. That way, you’re sure to experience your backyard environment to the fullest for years to come.
Are you taking the proper steps to make sure your friends and family are safe in your pool environment? Always make sure proper safety signage is displayed, take time to talk with your loved ones about pool safety, and remember that adult supervision is always required.
