Concrete Pools are only limited only by your space/imagination. Designs can take any shape, size and depth. Styles very from geometric, freeform/traditional, lap pools, pool & spa combinationplunge pool, swim/excercise pools etc... or create your own. Pools can include water features, spas, water slides etc.... All pools need to be designed to  meet structural engineer guidelines pertained to the house/area and you local SPASA approved company will ensure this. Each contract for a pool should be done on a Spa and Pool Association of WA contract – which means you have a watertight guarantee. 

Our biggest suggestion when trying to choose a concrete pool company is look for a SPASA (Swimming Pool and Spa Association) member. Members adhere to strict series of guidelines and are accountable to their peers in the industry, the industry president and more importantly you - the customer.

Your first step once you've decided that a concrete pool is the way to go is as follows:

1. Draw a rough map (or use building plans) to work out the area you want your concrete pool. Be sure to keep in mind that you will need an area seta side for pumps, filters and any other equipment, This can easily be hidden behind a wall or water featture and generally you will need about 2sqmtrs.

2. Use this website to find the independant and SPASA accredited concrete pool company in your area. Be sure to take your plans and visit more than one option and ask for a full quote includeing all site works, removal of sand, elelctrical, heating etc...

3. If you are building a house from scratch be sure to check with your builder as they will have recommended pool suppliers.

4. Once you're happy with your choice of supplier - keeping in mind there are some companies that are ownded by larger businesses operating under different names, the proceedure should run as follows:

The plan of the pool is submitted to local authorities for approval – Water Authority and Local Government. Once the pool is approved excavation of site is started. Pool hole is excavated and shell of pool is formed into shape, the strength of the pool is then reinforced with steel. Once completed the concrete shell is poured and rendered. The pool is then backfilled with sand.

Pool tiling, headers, water features and pool filtration pipe work are then installed. The filtration equipment is then installed all prior to final stage the internal render.

 The internal render is one of the most important decisions in a conncrete pool as it is the visual and water tight barrier that you will want ot look good and last for many years to come. Besure to look at several options and don't be afraid to go with the suggestions of you concrete pool sales person - after all they've done this before!

Finally the internal render is applied, it sets and then filling begins.

After this a final handover is done by thhe pool company and off you go.

At this stage be sure that you are completely happy with all facets of the work. The pool company should give you a thorough run down on operation, cleaning and maintainence (refer to Pool services for more regular servicing).

After that go crazy!
