Concrete Swimming Pools

concrete pool cons pic 2008Perhaps the ultimate way to build a swimming pool and undoubtedly the most versatile giving you the ability to create a unique and stunning swimming pool tailored to your own design and able to suit even the most exacting of needs. Following a site survey and conversations to determine the customer’s individual requirements we are able to provide a quotation and specification based on your idea of your pool, the surrounding landscape and the pools proposed location in your garden.

A swimming pool built from shuttered, steel reinforced concrete and then either tiled or rendered is arguably the strongest form of pool and can be constructed in virtually any shape and size and to suit virtually any situation.

The steel size and thickness are designed for individual pool sizes and shapes. The wall and floor concrete is poured in one operation to create a monolithic shell. Under floor drainage may be required in some areas to relieve ground water pressure. Swimming pools constructed using this method do not rely on the surrounding ground for any support and can therefore be built in virtually any location. These swimming pool shells are waterproof rendered to form a watertight vessel before being finished in either attractive, coloured pool renders - similar to terrazzo - or, of course, with decorative tiles. There is no limit to what can be done with mosaic tile designs for a pool that is totally custom designed and built.

As with all methods of swimming pool construction, the pool filtration system and flow control are all important and must be sized correctly by an expert to ensure good water quality and ease of pool maintenance. Likewise, pool heating systems and, if the pool is Indoors, air handling and climate control systems need to be carefully sized and fitted by fully qualified engineers to ensure maximum efficiency.

Fibreglass Swimming Pools

The Starline Monoblock range of Swimming pools -  a top class swimming pool manufactured in the Netherlands, based upon over 35 years of experience and development.

One-Piece Excellence

The Starline Monoblock is made from high-quality Vinylester, reinforced with a fibreglass sandwich construction providing an especially strong, stable and durable structure and also providing excellent insulation properties, which can help considerably in reducing your swimming pool running costs for years to come.  monoblock pics poster diagram

Every Monoblock in the range has built in safety in mind and has features such as the lower standing ledge as well as a safety ledge which can act as a guide for the optional automatic Roldeck slatted cover. The Starline Monoblock is fully prepared to include this Roldeck cover which  is hidden in a special Roldeck pit under the pool surround. The Roldeck is stored out of sight and the space surrounding the Monoblock is unobstructed, especially when an optional special child-safety lock is installed.

Every Monoblock is supplied with factory fitted and tested pool shell fittings, ready for pipe-work and filtration connection. All the pre-installed fittings, pipe work and optional extras such as counter current swim units are exclusively factory sealed, pressure tested and guaranteed before the pool arrives on site totally complete, fitted with or without a Roldeck cover, filter unit, coping stones and terrace tiles plus all other accessories such as a water lever switch. Installation therefore is far less messy and can be faster than a standard pool build.

As with all methods of swimming pool construction, the pool filtration system and flow       control are all important and must be sized correctly by an expert to ensure good water quality and ease of pool maintenance. Likewise, pool heating systems and, if the pool is Indoors, air handling and climate control systems need to be carefully sized and fitted by fully qualified engineers to ensure maximum efficiency.

Pre-Tailored Swimming Pool Liner

Liner pool construction is a more cost effective alternative than using the all concrete method, with the vinyl pool liner being the waterproofing membrane, therefore allowing the pool shell to be of a lighter build quality, but can give a similar and very attractive finished appearance to your swimming pool design.

Liner pool walls can be built either using concrete walling blocks or bolt together panels made from either resin or galvanised steel or from timber panels (see timber pools section). A layer of lightweight foam can then be applied for both heat retention and to protect the liner from wear.

 Vinyl liners are available in various thickness and are factory welded to accurate plans.

With many different colours and patterns to choose from the customer can have their own custom design.

 

Below are a few of the many different patterns for pre-tailored liners

 Aqua Pattern           Barcelona Blue Pattern           Mosaic Pattern           Slate Pattern

Working with the pioneers, Pools and Gardens can now incorporate lined steps into a pre-tailored liner. The benefits are enormous, for renovating old and new pools where a less expensive option than a fibreglass or acrylic step is desired. Moreover, the problem of matching the colour of the liner to the colour of the step disappears.

Lined Steps Photo 1

 

 

Almost any size and shape of step can be lined in this way, as long as clear and accurate drawings are supplied. The only stipulation is that there must be an absolute minimum of 6” (0.15cm) of water covering the top step in order to prevent movement of the liner.

 

Below are a selection of possible step designs 

 Corner   Curved   Inside   Roman   Square

          Corner                  Curved                  Inside                Roman                Square

 

 Anti Slip Material

We strongly suggest anti silp material for step treads, Diving Blocks and Shallow areas.        The material conforms to the European Standard EN 13451 -1 and achieves the highest safety classification (Class C) for slip resistance. For incorporation into pretailored pool liners.

Colours available: White, Ice Blue, Blue, Sand, Light Grey and Dark Grey

Motifs & Logos

Why not make your pool liner unique and special by adding a printed motif. Just supply us with the high resolution artwork or, if your have something in mind, like a dolphin, just give us a call to discuss.

Simple motifs can be welded onto the liner. We have a selection of motifs such as a turtle, seahorse, sealion, butterfly and dolphin.

On-Site Lining

Onsite lining systems use a 1.5mm thick lining material, available in a choice of colours and patterns, which is welded into the swimming pool shell onsite. Onsite lining systems have a much longer life expectancy than standard  factory made liners and can be used for longer at a much higher swimming pool water temperature.

Once the shell of the pool is prepared, or built, and the skimmers, inlets, lights, main drains and linerlock are in place, an underlay is glued to the base and sides of the pool. Then a bead is welded to the top of the side walls. There is an option for adifferent type of fixing whereby PVC coated metal is welded directly onto the metal profile. This system is useful when renovating old pools when its important not to disturb the copng stones.

         Beaded Fixing             Metal Fixing

 The Sidewall is then clipped into the linerlock (or welded to the metal profile) and cut to the correct depth. the base of the pool can now be lined and the sidewalls welded to the base.   The material is over-lapped by 50mm and welded by a hot air gun.

           On-Site Lining 2               On-Site Lining 3

Onsite lining system are ideal for renovating and refurbishing pools and also for pools with unusual or complicated shapes.

It has an exceptional stregth. The material, which incorprates a polyester reinforced mesh, is 1.5mm thick which enables it to withstand intensive use and severe knocking from even the most enthusiastic swimmer. It also has a special formular that includes a UV stabilising treatment which can withstand exposure to all extreme weather, retaining its properties year after year.

Guaranteed for ten years, with a life expectancy nearer 15 to 20 years. On-site lining can be used on concrete, cement, render, brick or block, steel or aluminium, timber or fiberglass. 

An on-site lined pool can be run at temperatures up to 33°C (91°F) without any detrimental effect on the expected life of the lining. Even at temperatures up to 35°C (95°F) the lining will give many years of service and is still covered by a more limited five year guarantee.

 

Below are a small selection of the patterns available

             Marble                     Persia Blue                 Persia Sand                     Sand

 

The Touch Range

The Touch Range is manufactured in extremely tough 2.00mm material and is the only pool lining to have a natural looking texture incorporated into it. 

The patterns are designed to give a natural feel and appearance, giving the sensation of swimming in a natural pool or lagoon whilst never comprimising on the high protectionaspect. The multiple layers of acrylic varnish ensure a finish which will look fantastic for years to come, and will withstand all kinds of punishment endured in a swimming pool environment.

 

The 3D embossed Touch range is presented in three different patterns

                       Touch Authentic               Touch Elegance               Touch Relax
