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

Custom Pool design and construction, Bargara

Another custom pool design for clients at Bargara.

This pool is tucked into the corner of the back yard to allow some grass to remain when the pool area is complete. The pool will include a Cascade Splash water feature, some glass fencing and Stone Directions, pavers and Bullnose coping.. The access was super tight and all the material from excavation was run to the street with our Positrak.

Bargara pool construction, getting started

Pool excavation, Bargara

Bargara pool construction underway

Right in the middle of excavation one of the tracks decided to let go so it was a mad dash to grab anew set. Then the fun began fitting the thing. What a mission that turned out to be. Its all good now with pool excavated and the pool steel is almost complete ready for spraying on Monday.

Its always great to custom design pools to provide our clients with a unique pool design not just a duplicate of another project. Stay watching and see this pool area being constructed at Bargara.
