At UK Swimming pools we can carry out all sorts of repairs and refurbishments to pools that have been out of service for many years, and bring them back to as new condition. Below you will see a 10 metre by 10 metre pool that had been out of service for over 20 years. The construction used to include a water fountain at the shallow end but this had sadly cracked and broken. Our task was to reduce depth at the deep end and do away with the defective shallow end. We also installed a complete new filter system including all required pipe feeds.
Take a look at how we achieved this fantastic overhaul in three weeks and brought the 50 year old swimming pool back to its former glory.
Another Example of a structural repair to a swimming pool is hsown below where we reinforced the existing interior with EML and full rendering.
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.
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.
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.
