Q Where will the filter and pump go?
A. Allow for a pool plant room,to house filter and pump, toys, games and pool covers. Also a secured storage facility for chemicals. If you have an outside building or even in a garage these locations will do as long as there’s good access and services available for the pool plant. If you do get stuck in a rut send us an email.
Q. Which type of heating will you require? Gas, oil, solar, or heat pump?
A. Well we all know how expensive gas and oil can be. We don’t have enough sun to warrant solar heating panels Although 2013 and this year broke the mould of poor summers. Heat pumps are a much more economical way to heat swimming pools
However you need to be aware of the pitfalls during the construction stages to completion. If you have knowledge of construction then building a pool can be relatively easy.
You could buy a pool as a complete kit (Above ground wooden pool). This requires a concrete base for the structure to rest on. It can build it partly in the ground and timber decking built around to make it look like an in-ground pool.

Q. How much will my swimming pool cost?

Q. Where to locate my swimming pool?
A. You can install a swimming pool in just about any location on your property, but in some instances you may need planning and building approval, for example if your building the pool indoors.
Q. Where is the subsoil from the dig going to go?
A. The spoil (subsoil) will either stay in your garden and be landscaped or taken away to a certified municipal tip.
Q. Is it a liner swimming pool or concrete pool?
A. Liner construction is cheaper and quicker to build. Concrete pools can take up to 6 months to complete because of the curing and drying times of materials used in building the swimming pool.
Q. How wide should decking be around the pool?
A. If you are not tight on space, then 900mm (3ft) wide walkway is sufficiently wide enough for access around the pool, obviously, you can go wider if you wish.
Q. Is it to be an indoor or outdoor pool?
A. An indoor will actually save you money in the long run. An enclosure will save you money on heating, chemicals, water bills and maintenance time, and it extends the swimming season.
Also we supply all types of pool equipment from chemicals to heat pumps, covers to enclosures.
