Neptune Swimming Pools Project 3
Positioned on a steep embankment, this striking pool was expertly constructed by Neptune Swimming Pools. Showcasing a fantastic view, the pool features a full-length submerged bench upon which the homeowners can relax and take in the surrounding landscape.
To accommodate the challenging site, the pool was expertly constructed 4m above ground and anchored with a support system of pads, strip footings, core-filled blockwork, and BONDEK® steel formwork from Lysaght.
To maintain continuity around the exterior of the home, the pool’s infinity edge was fitted with a complementary rendered gutter. White mosaic tiles were selected for the interior of the pool for modern visual appeal, while bluestone coping was selected to provide a vivid contrast with the timber decking.
Measuring 7.4m x 3.2m, the expansive pool is ideal for exercise. Two LED submerged lights from Spa Electrics were incorporated to ensure the pool looks stunning at night, while glass fencing allows it to be admired from within the home.
Fitted with multiple high-quality products from AstralPool – including an FG 705 sand filter, a CTX 280 pump, and a fully-automated EQ35 Viron eQuilibrium salt chlorinator – the pool requires minimal maintenance. A cost-efficient solar heater from SunLover was also installed.
