8 Points to consider when constructing a Swimming Pool

  1. Shopping like you are buying a car. 
    Swimming pools are custom construction projects. All pools are not built the same, unlike an automobile which is manufactured in a factory under controlled conditions. With a swimming pool much of what you do not see will impact the cost of pool construction. Lifestyle Solutions Centre include as a scope of work in all pool construction extra wide pool coping 400mm wide – this builds a stronger pool with a wider beam with additional steel
  2. Ask Questions. 
    Do not assume every builder is going to give you an education about constructing a pool or is capable of giving you one, for that matter. The more you know and understand about swimming pool construction the better buyer you will ultimately be. Lifestyle Solutions Centre guarantees to provide from start to finish a personalised service for custom design and innovative solutions from capturing on site data, to comprehensive proposals, and full project management.
  3. Check out the Contractor
    What makes them qualified to build swimming pools? Consider the saying, “If you think the cost of a Professional is expensive, wait until you hire an Amateur.” Lifestyle Solutions Centre has previous clients and 15 years experience  for reassurance of our capabilities and workmanship
  4. Shopping based on price. 
    Usually if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is! If you shop for price alone you are destined to be disappointed. Bottom line: you usually get what you pay for. Allowances for the unknown – account for soil types and footings, excavation and coping/tiles. When comparing proposals be certain the allowances included are realistic to avoid potential nasty surprises when construction commences. Lifestyle Solutions Centre allowances are individually calculated by tried and proven formulas based on many years of pool construction.
  5. Shopping over the phone for a pool. 
    It is impossible and a waste of your time to get a realistic solution over the phone. Call into our showroom at 78 Mt Perry Rd North Bundaberg or call 4155-5500 to arrange an appointment on site a consultation to understand your site specific requirements.
  6. Be energy-efficient. 
    It’s easier than ever to save on a swimming pool’s energy costs. Enclosures, pool covers, and pump and lighting timers can all pay for themselves in energy savings over time.  With every pool proposal Lifestyle Solutions Centre include energy-efficient options.
  7. Warranty’s what do you receive? 
    With every pool Lifestyle Solutions Centre construct you receive a site-specific engineering design that guarantees a 10 Structural Warranty on the engineering on the pool construction.The interior finish warranties are subject and specific to your selection of four great interiors. Our team at Lifestyle Solutions Centre constructs every project utilising the highest quality construction materials, techniques and equipment.
  8. Once constructed – now what Lifestyle Solutions Centre spend all the time necessary at handover to provide a complete demonstration of the pool equipment with a customised manual, start-up chemicals, and an initial treatment of your water so the pool is ready to swim and off to a great start. We will also give you a FREE 30 day pool service water test and balance. This will make sure to keep your pool water healthy. Lifestyle Solutions Centre also operate a full Zodiac Titanium pool shop at the showroom 78 Mt Perry Rd Bundaberg for free pool tests and advise to help you keep your pool water sparkling and assisting past clients with benefits of ongoing specials and promotions.

3 Reasons a Spa can change your life, Bundaberg

Interesting info about hydrotherapy in spas.. and how they can work for you.

Image

For me there are Key three factors at work in a spa: heat, buoyancy and massage. Together, they create a relaxing, soothing experience.

Lets look at the factors separately..
1/ Immersing your body in hot water raises the body temperature and causes the blood vessels to dilate, increasing circulation. making your feel great !
2/ The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by around 90% relieving pressure on joints and muscles and creates the relaxing sensation of weightlessness. Makes you feel great again…
3/ The massaging effect in a spa is created by sending a mixture of warm water and air bubbles through jet nozzles. This“energised” stream of water and air bubbles loosens tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Feel great again..

There is more to a spa than just a good hydro-massage. It’s also your own private retreat that leaves you feeling mentally and emotionally refreshed. Around fifteen minutes in the morning can awaken and revive you.
Repeat the process before bedtime can make it easier to drift into a deep, restful sleep. I’ll bet you want to feel refreshed and ready to go every day. Help your body recover and you will enjoy life EVERY DAY… See the team at Agro trend and see first hand how a spa will help you get the most out of life..feel free to ask any questions about spas.. insulation, running cost, heating, sanitising.. in fact keep an eye out and we’ll be writing some blog posts about all these issues in the coming week.. check the Lifestyle Spa range at  http://lifestylesolutionscentre.com/lifestyle-solutions/spas/catalogue/

Designing The Right Pool For You

Recent worrying trends to popular computer games and related activities are reducing interaction with family and friends. The inclusion of a pool or spa is a fabulous way to encourage regular interactions with both friends and family so when you are considering a pool or spa you must be sure careful consideration is given to ensure the design takes into account the landscape and entertaining areas. Any project of this nature is a large investment so it is critical to get it right.

Key Factors to Consider
Position the pool or spa to aim for 60-70% of sunshine, leaving time to get respite from the sun during seasonal change of the suns path.
Place your pool for the best aesthetic position and to give any water feature or other feature, prime location.
What size of your pool & shape, location of entry to pool or spa?
Consider the number & age of the users, what do you intend using the pool for? exercise, entertaining, cooling off, games?? The shape of the pool should be reflective of the home design.
Don’t forget about traffic at the gate & into the pool. Also the location of tables & chairs needs to be considered when locating the fence & gate and the steps into the pool.
Also, people often overlook the choice of fresh or salt water and chlorine injection because you need to take into account allergies or irritations.

A Pool?… Or a Spa?
This is often dictated by the area although time to maintain is another factor. Ease & cost of heating a spa in a short time is more recently swinging clients to heated spas, or swim spas; their high pressure jets to swim against will allow swimming in a far smaller area. Spas are more oftenly used all year round, where pools have 8-9 month use with seasonal effects.

The most important thing to consider is planning, take into account the issues mentioned about and make notes of any site specific issues that need to be considered.

Next set a budget to complete the project. Then make an appointment to come and see the friendly staff at Lifestyle Soutions Centre so a project can be designed to the budget that is appropriate for your scope of works.
