Why Fox: X-Brace & Foxgard Systems

For the past 60+ years, Fox Pool has been the strongest name in pools. Delivering high quality products that last a lifetime, we take pride in the strength and craftsmanship we apply to every pool system.

To achieve such a high level of durability and reliability, we are constantly delivering unique and innovative products coupled with superior customer service, unmatched by our competition.  With the Fox X-Brace technology & our Foxgard Fusion-Bonded System applied to our Inground Pool systems, you can experience the Fox difference.


Fox pools utilize some of the same technology used in building bridges, tall buildings, water towers and other structures that require durability & strength against high stress. Your swimming pool holds thousands of gallons of water while holding back thousands of pounds of earth. In order to ensure structural integrity over many years, it is important that your pool walls will remain intact, regardless of external forces. Patented by Fox, the X-Brace structure provides 100% support for your pool walls and pool deck without concern for internal and external pressures. Don’t be fooled by imitations – Demand the original X-Brace only available from Fox Pool.
