There are many options available for one-piece moulded pools, the finishes can be either ceramic, tiled, fibreglass or thermoplastic, these pools also come in many shapes and sizes and can be configured with beach sections, spa sections, step sections or any combinations of these, they can even incorporate hidden cover systems. The available options are numerous.The advantage of these pools is that they can be installed in a very short period of time and they are strong, durable and require minimal maintenance.
Providing good access is available the pools are usually craned straight into a pre-prepared excavation and they can be backfilled and filled with water almost immediately after delivery.If access is a problem most of the one-piece pools can also be delivered to site in sections and re-joined in situ, this would increase costs and time slightly before the pool could be filled but it is a useful option in some cases.
This option requires the structure to be made using reinforced concrete, a waterproof render and screed and a tanking layer which is then finished using tiles or natural stone.
The pool must be built as a solid seamless structure that will not move in the ground.
A tiled or stone lined pool must be solid to prevent any cracks forming in the structure which would allow water loss.
This method of construction is a longer more involved process than a liner pool.
Bespoke pools can be designed and planned exactly to individual customers’ requirements, any shape, size or finish can be considered. Practicalities of the site need to be considered but in most cases any design can be achieved.
Ground conditions should be accounted for prior to work commencing. Things that can influence pool design and ease of build include high water tables, types of soil and how soil will be removed from site.
