Dr materialises in UK Swimming Pool

Our job was to run a complete new filter system with larger filter keg and air injection system with remote switching. The client wanted new full glass mosaics with a "Tardis" motif.

See how we reinforce the existing interior with EML and full rendering.

Initial Survey

Our first survey showed an old cast-in-situ concrete swimming pool that has a six inch tile band and a marbelite finish below. The tiles had blown and cracked and the marbelite above the present water level had cracked and fractured. When we started the job we found that the marbelite had in fact suffered from total frost and water ingress damage. The pool was in a high water table site and we had to arrange to de-water the area so we could carry out the required works.

Lets get busy

Our client agreed with the schedule of extra works and we started the refurbishment.He wanted an as new pool complete with new filter system and complete new pipework. To conform to new ISPE regulations and to fit with the expected bathing load of the pool it was agreed that we fit new surface water skimmers and two new main drain sump points. The complete interior surface was removed ready for us to reinforce the old surface. A complete new rendering coat was applied ready for the new glass mosaics.

And finally

Our client and his family are huge DR Who fans and he wanted to show this in his new pool. He asked us for some ideas and we forwarded him some sketches of the TARDIS which he loved. Our mosaic artist arranged for some drawings to be shown and a final spec was chosen You can see below the finished motif and the pool in its glory. Please call Anthony at UK Swimming Pools ltd for any ideas you may have for your new pool or refurbishment.
