Case Study: Reburbishing a concrete pool

The complete refurb of a 30-year-old concrete tiled pool

Leaking pipework and a broken pool shell
23rd March 2020

This was an epic project, the complete refurbishment of a 30-year-old concrete tiled pool. The size of the pool, along with its original construction and the poor state it was in all added to making it a challenging but exciting project to be involved with.

As well as there being damage to the pool shell, much of the pipework was also leaking.

Structurally the pool was in a poor state. Tiles were falling off all over the pool and the top section of the pool was crumbling and falling apart.

The existing slatted floating automatic cover system needed to be replaced and, in its place, a new sheet type, with a fully automatic safety cover, was installed.

Once the site was made good, the leaking pipework was identified and replaced.

With the area shored up, we then could work on the pool itself, making sure the pool foundations were solid.

The tiles were replaced with an on site lining. We opted for a slate effect touch finish, to provide a long wearing surface, which not only is easy to clean but feels good under foot.
