Albatross Pools Project 9

As featured on Channel Ten’s television series The Home Team, Albatross Pools has found great success with this custom-built, elevated pool design. Demonstrating its prowess in working with small spaces, difficult site conditions and tight timelines, Albatross Pools has inspired viewers of The Home Team how to carry-out an outstanding pool project of their own.

With extremely limited space available, the requirement of the pool’s positioning was that it had to be constructed at the same level as the home’s rumpus room. To ensure this, Albatross Pools utilised a pre-engineered stainless steel pool system. While primarily designed as an in-ground system, this type of design can be built above ground level if needed. With additional engineering and workmanship, Albatross Pools managed to achieve the elevation of the pool with ease.

The 5m x 3.3m pool features a fresh, lagoon-like Antique Aqualux PVC interior to complement both the contemporary colour palette of the rumpus room and outdoor landscaping elements. As well as this, recessed deck jets along the length of the pool create an interesting water feature that can be enjoyed during cooler months.

Partnering with Anthony Scott Landscape Design, the outdoor space features a clever combination of natural landscaping textures, such as lush foliage, bluestone, slate and hardwood timber, creating a picture-perfect outdoor space.

Boasting a roll call of more than 15,000 happy clients, Albatross Pools to this day remains owned and operated by the Van Der Haar family, who continue to abide by the cornerstone principles developed at the company’s inception.

Since its humble beginnings with a display pool in the backyard of the Van Der Haar family home in Melbourne, the company has evolved into one of Australia’s leading innovators and builders of pre-engineered award winning in-ground pools. Albatross Pools builds state-wide and its SPASA award winning fully landscaped display centres at Warrandyte and Dandenong are open seven days a week year-round.
