Swimming Pool Refurbishment Complete

Swimming pool refurbishmentA swimming pool refurbishment has successfully completed just in time for the sun coming out this weekend. The existing outdoor pool overlooks a cotswold valley and required a complete refurbishment. The pool had fallen into a sorry state after nearly 40 years of use so needed stripping out for a complete refurbishment and bringing up to date with the latest plant room equipment.

The pool had previously been covered with a bubble solar cover but as part of the refurbishment they required a new automated hidden slatted cover system.

The structure of the existing pool shell had stood up to ther test of time but new structural calcs were required to add on a new ‘letterbox style’ cover pit; which was constucted behind the existing shallow end wall.

Hidden slatted cover on bespoke spa

Hidden Slatted Cover On Round Spa ClosingThis large, bespoke, outdoor spa required a cover to keep in heat and keep out the debris. Due to the spa size and onsite storage problems a standard lift on cover was out of the question.

Brookforge pool builders where contacted to find a solution to this unique problem. Collaborating with a highly experienced spa cover manufacturer, the solution was to hide a fully automated hidden slatted cover in the base of the spa below a twin hatch door. The submersible in-roller motor was activated via a pool side remote control keeping it’s operation as simple as is possible

The thermal slatted cover was custom made to ensure it fitted tightly to the unique shape and top steps in the spa.
