Salt Pools Project 15
This striking pool is the second that Salt Pools has built for the homeowners – a sure indication of the calibre of work produced by the team. The brief given was for a sophisticated family pool. Showcasing an arresting interior of dark mosaic tiles and a design defined by clean, sharp lines, the pool has a contemporary aesthetic.
Salt Pools worked closely with the homeowners to craft the design, and the fnished project is a testament to the company’s collaborative skills. Measuring 7m x 4m, the generous-sized pool sits proudly as the hero of the backyard. Lending the water an enigmatic appeal, the interior features Bisazza ‘Rachele’ tiles. The dark tiles are perfectly offset by the expanse of pale-coloured paving that surrounds the pool and stretches up to the dwelling, passing beneath a sleek, frameless glass fence.
The pool’s clean lines are echoed in the home’s design, while the light and dark shades used within the space mimic the interior colour palette. Mature and self-aware, this project is a perfect display of how thoughtful planning and a clever design can combine to create an outstanding result. Offering an alluring view from the alfresco area and from within the home, the pool completes the backyard, making it equally perfect for entertaining or quiet contemplation.
As practical as it is classy, the pool features a PV3 Automatic Pool Cleaning System from Paramount, a filter and variable-speed pump from AstralPool, as well as a backup gas heater to ensure it can be enjoyed year-round. Multicoloured submerged LED lights enhance the pool’s visual appeal. With the Connect My Pool app from AstralPool, the homeowners can easily control the pool temperature, turn on the lights, adjust the settings and monitor essential functions all from within their home.
