Swimming Pool FAQ’s

How are concrete pools built?

The initial pool shape is dug out of the ground and then we add steel reinforcement. Concrete is then poured as one continuous shell to provide structural strength. Designs can be custom built to any shape/size you desire. Concrete swimming pools are ideal for backyards with challenging sites, such as hilly blocks, narrow gardens and those with limited space. Due to the fact concrete pools can be designed to fit any space, we are not limited with a pre-fabricated pool shell such as fibre glass pool designs.

What are the benefits of concrete?

Due to the structural strength of an engineered concrete swimming pool, they offer great flexibility with design and placement. This strength also means that the pool will withstand generations of fun and play. As well as shape and design you also have a large variety of unique and exotic internal finishes and surfaces to choose from.

Unlike fibreglass pools, concrete swimming pools allow you almost total design freedom. Pool size, depth, shape and in most cases location are limited only by your imagination. Concrete gives you the flexibility to think outside the square- from the most extravagant personal taste through to challenging sites including indoor, outdoor, sloping sites, hillside locations, out of ground structures or rooftops.

The inherent strength of reinforced concrete pools; boundary walls, water walls, water features and fencing can be constructed directly on top of the shell. Plus with proper planning, it can even form part of the footing for the house wall. A well-designed pool is an integral asset to the property and an absolute pleasure for the end user.

I have a small block- can I have a concrete pool?

There are very few situations that would inhibit the construction of a concrete swimming pool. With thoughtful design, planning and the correct engineering, concrete pools can be built right up to the property boundary. They can also form the footings for a new house or other structure. Your concrete pool can maximise the available space and thus provide more space for you to enjoy.
