Pool Installations Case Studies
An Extra Ordinary Pool in Every Way
The brief here was for the pool to blend in seamlessly with the huge decked patio. This was achieved by creating a narrow channel around the pool to carry the water to the rimflow reservoir, with this channel hidden by the decking. The result, a body of water floating in the middle of the wooden decking. Add in Reviglass tiling throughout and 250 fibre optic stars on the floor and you have a unique pool in every sense of the word.

Rimflow Renovation Case-study
This is a case-study of a standard rectangular pool where a rimflow and water feature was added. The work was particularly difficult as the pool was situated almost right on the boundary fence of a golf course, constraining the working space. The rimflow channel was created by reducing the height of the existing gunite wall, dowelling into this and guniting the rimflow channel. The raised wall on the end of the pool was installed to create more privacy.
Modernizing Renovation Case-study
An outdated and asymmetrical pool transformed into a pool with clean lines and a contemporary style. The existing gunite pool was altered to a rectangular shape by adding a new gunite wall the length of the pool. This freed up a lot of space in the small garden. New Revelstone coping, fibreglass lining and waterline ceramic mosaic tiles updated the old style and the wooden deck, raised slightly above garden level, added the finishing touch. Other alterations not visible included the addition of an LED underwater light and a Zodiac salt water chlorinator.
