A Short History of Doughboy Pools
Doughboy Pools are manufactured by Hoffinger Industries, but were originally made by Domain Industries until Hoffinger Industries bought the company, and if you are wondering about the strange name of this pool company, here is a little history of that company.
During WWII Domain Industries perfected the rubber sealing process and won an Army contract to seal K-rations . These rations were portable “meals in a can” carried by U.S. soldiers in battle. These soldiers earned the nickname of Doughboys.
This is why, in 1947, Domain Industries named their packaging company Doughboy Plastics Division. Doughboy Plastics Division specializes in the family outdoor entertainment market by making inflatable splasher pools, toys and beach balls. Once this was accomplished, Doughboy Plastics Division changed the name to Doughboy Recreational. In 1974, Hoffinger Industries bought Doughboy Plastics Division but did not change the name.
The Connection To Above Ground Pools
Hoffinger Industries began and is still owned by Marty Hoffinger who invented the first above ground pool filter in 1945. Although Doughboy Recreational has made a name for themselves in above ground pool manufacturing, they have also remained in the rubber sealing business. The pool liners that they make employs the Therma Seal technology which makes a liner seam which is many times stronger than the liner material itself. It takes liner seam reinforcement to an entirely new level. This enables them to provide a 100% guarantee on the seams of the pool liners.
