3 Reasons a Spa can change your life, Bundaberg

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

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/

7 Tips when selecting a pool builder in Bundaberg

When you are searching a Contractor to design your new pool and entertaining area. For instance you must also consider the location of the pool, drainage, landscaping and fencing to name a few.  There is much more to building a pool as you must consider. Ever dollar counts but you should remember to look at the long-term effects of the choices you make. Thinking a little more about the options available will have considerable effect on the long-term overall cost of owning  your pool.

1/what you want to use the pool for.. swimming laps, cooling off, helping the children learn to swim..do you need large seating areas, how deep do you want the pool.. are you going to play ball games …

2/ have you chosen the most energy efficient equipment or just the cheapest

Here are some tips you should consider.. by no means all.. just some that come to front of mind when making your choice of contractor for your next pool project.

Tip 1.  to compare when you are building a pool… Ask does your pool coping include sikaflex marine grade expansion joints…

Tip. 2 when building a pool…. Is the standard paving sealer include Dry treat 10 year warranty… Applied by qualified applicators… Our pools do …

Tip 3.  when comparing your selection of pool builder…does the pump include the super efficient zodiac e pump Standard with your new pool ?

Tip 4 : when using a concrete finish around your pool does you pool builder included a thickening beam, dowell certs into the slab and the pool shell, ableflex joints and sikaflex to complete the process.. ask the question maybe its the hidden features that come standard in our pools that aren’t even thought of by other builders

Tip no 5. when selecting your pool builder… take a look at the paver or tile that provides the access around your pool, it is called a coping paver.. many builders choose to use one and a half old style brick pavers only 300 wide… when you choose a lifestyle solutions pool you will receive as standard, premium quality 400 x 400 bullnose pavers for over 33 % wide area to access to your pool… also this mean you be have a stronger pool as the concrete that supports the paver or tile is also wider with more steel and concrete.. the wider paver also makes the pool look bigger… narrow pavers or tiles available at reduced cost… setting the standard our clients expect at Lifestyle solutions centre

Tip 6.  when selecting your pool builder .. ask the question why we won’t build a pool with pebble rollover.. ie no pavers on the coping of the pool… that’s because time has proven, while it’s a cheaper method, the surface usually starts cracking in 3-5 years and can never be repaired to look the same.. so at “Lifestyle solutions centre” we wont build a pool with pebble rollover.. sorry better do it right from the start we believe !

Tip 7. Some pool builders claim to be experts in building a pool yet they show little concern for what you require in the pool, what you intend to do with the pool, whether it’s just cooling off, swimming laps, or you have young children, aging friends who require easier access.. that’s before even thinking about where you require space around the pool inside or outside the fence, thought about a different angle , where is best location for the fencing, how can you incorporate a water feature, what is the best height for the pool relative to the adjoining areas… there is so much to consider when designing a pool area, not just the pool so at Lifestyle solutions centre this is all part of the design process to give you the best solution for your needs… don’t put up with mass production.custom design your pool to get the most from your pool and entertaining area, yes it will cost a little extra but you will benefit every time you use the area and realise the extra investment was well worth it.. come and explore the alternatives.

To assist you in making the right decisions in building your new pool its worth considering some of the points raised in this blog.. for certain this is only the start and there is much more to consider.  Very rarely do you find the best solution is the cheapest so take your time and consider the options and come out and discuss your next project with the team at Lifestyle Solutions centre, 78 Mt Perry road North Bundaberg.. and check out some of the photos of our previous work on http://www.lifestylesolutions.com.au

Concrete pool renovations, Bundaberg

This week we’ve been working on a Pool renovation where the pool was around 15-20 years old. Still very solid, just a little tired and dated. The client had the option of Pebble or Quatrzon interior and after some deliberation choose 2-3 mm pebble in Champagne which give a soft turquoise water appearance.

 

In preparing the pool for its new finish the existing coping papers were removed and relevelled which some slight imperfections required removing. Same for the tile band which was removed completely then squared up and a new tile band was installed prior to finishing the coping tile. This tile match the pool surrounds and had the front edge nosed to soften the look and feel. Using vitreous tiles makes this possible as the biscuit of the tile is the same from top to bottom of the tile.

The interior required jack hammering under the waterline to allow a smooth transition up the wall, then all other areas required to be sparrow pecked to give a good bond to the entire finish. Then the floor was sanded and pressure cleaning before applying a bonding coat prior to the final pool finish.

Day has come and the pool interior is to be applied.. quick slurry over the base and pebble is applied just like new… then the pool is filled, water tested and its all complete.. looks far more like a modern new pool… pics of finished pool still to come as its still filling as we speak.. keep and eye out for that.
