Brookforge refurbished this outdoor pool in North London. We added a Covrex automatic cover, complete with underwater skimmer system that allows the pool to have a high freeboard giving the pool the look of an overflow pool without all of the cost. We laid Natural Stone slabs to create a modern looking surround that extended across the width of the rear garden of this property near to the much sought after location of Bishops Avenue and Hampstead.
A 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 the test of time but new structural calcs were required to add on a new ‘letterbox style’ cover pit; which was constructed behind the existing shallow end wall.
We often refurbish plant rooms as part of renovation projects. Well designed plant rooms using high quality pipework and equipment, installed properly, should provide years of trouble free service.
When one or more of these things is missing however, the plant room will not last for anywhere near as long as its original intended service life.
- Replacement of lower quality white ABS pipe and fittings with high quality grey PVC.
- Installation of locking pipe clips to prevent pipework sagging over time.
- Fixing leaks in pipework and fittings.

The surround tiles have nearly been finished, with the pool tiles not far behind. Stainless steel skimmers with an automatic top-up have been installed. A chromed stainless steel faceplate will be installed after tiling is finished. To view the construction products used please follow this link.
Tiling has begun at our local site, a refurbishment project to both house and modernise a dated, outdoor pool. The previous tiles have been removed, the shell has had its depth increased and has been tanked. The tile adhesive used is a rapid curing, water resistant product. More about the adhesive can be found here.
