Private Pools

WE DESIGN, BUILD, AND MAINTAIN PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL POOLS

CONSULT & DESIGN

Whether you’re looking for a perfect space for entertaining, family entertainment, home fitness, or somewhere simply to relax, chill and escape from the outside world, we turn your swimming pool dreams into reality.

Designing your perfect pool is exciting and also full of choices. With so many variables to think about, how do you know what to do? Fortunately, we have a list of things we talk through with you to help you think about your swimming pool journey, from planning to first plunge.

“Designing your perfect pool is a quality collaboration of pool owner and professional expertise”

The sky is the limit when it comes to pool design and to an extent is only limited by your imagination (and maybe budget!).  Perhaps you’re looking for something sleek and contemporary with an infinity edge or maybe something more traditional in design with whirlpool seating.  If you prefer steps or a gradual slope, child friendly or disabled access, whatever your requirements, we will build you the pool you imagined.

 

IT TAKES ALL SHAPES AND SIZES…

With pools available in a variety of shapes and styles, there is sure to be something to fit your space and your landscape.

Indoor or out, we can fit a pool where you would not have thought it possible, and designed to fit your architectural living and leisure space.

FILTRATION SYSTEMS

Safe bathing conditions are paramount and our filtration systems are specifically designed to suit each installation.

To ensure best water quality the hydraulics of a filtration system including pumps, pipe sizing, heat exchangers, and pool finishes are designed to suit the plant flow and to ensure quality treated water is delivered to all areas of the pool. Mechanical and electrical elements of the filtration system are all tested and certified at handover.

POOL SHELL

All our pool shells are formed by either the traditional reinforced shuttered and poured concrete method or by reinforced sprayed concrete method.

Both applications are installed to current BS EN Standards. Sprayed concrete is an extremely versatile material that lends itself to many applications in the industry. The system has advantages similar to all other concrete structures, it is durable, resistant to disasters and has good thermal mass. It particularly lends itself to the installation of free form pools, with tight curves and flowing lines. However, the main benefit of using sprayed concrete is the speed of application. Traditional reinforced shutter and poured concrete is still the most favoured of installations in particular on bigger pools and when the pool is level deck. Yes, it’s is a longer process than spraying but the finish before render application is smooth and easier on the eye.

TILES

A beautiful pool will take your breath away and although mosaic has been a traditional pool tile design for thousands of years, the sky is the limit now when it comes to creative design and blends of different colours, materials and finish. 

The choice is huge, from porcelain, glass, stone and pebble or beautiful bespoke creations.  Whilst you want your pool to look its best it is important to adhere to the highest technical and safety standards and all our tiling works are carried out by our own experienced in-house tiling team.

POOL HALL ENVIRONMENT

If you decide to opt for an indoor pool facility, then with our great British weather, the benefit of being indoors is that it can be used by all the family, throughout the year.

Maintaining a pool hall temperature which is always 1 degree above pool water temperature eliminates dampness & condensation on windows, fixtures and fittings.  In our installations we incorporate a market leading Heatstar system which controls both pool heating and pool hall heating & dehumidification in an all in one unit. These units are extremely reliable in controlling the temperature of your pool hall environment, ensuring a pleasant and comfortable pool experience.

POOL COVER

 If you wish to keep pool running costs to a minimum, then a pool cover is highly recommended.

We can tell you of 8 very good reasons why you should install a pool cover, but the choice is yours!

  1. Conserves water
  2. Cuts down energy cost
  3. Saves money
  4. Keeps out debris
  5. Less maintenance
  6. Helps retain heat in the pool
  7. Cuts down chemical usage
  8. Slows down evaporation

A pool cover is of course a personal decision, with many choices available for the finishes that float on top of the pool. However, if you decide that you don’t want to hide your pool with a cover, one thing to bear in mind is that a residential pool is typically used 20% of the time which means the pool could be covered for 80% of the time, thereby saving on the associated cost of having your own pool.
