Like all constructions swimming pools will require work in their lifetime to keep them in perfect condition. This can be from an acid wash and re-grouting to retiling, installation of entrance steps into the pool. In addition to these aesthetic works, owners may experience problems such as leaks, cracks, staining of tiles, or problems with pipe work and plumbing.
On this swimming pool in Cumbre del Sol the clients needed to make it easier for a disabled member of their family to get in and out of the swimming pool. The original pool had stainless steel ladders that the family member could not use. We installed full width steps with two rows of dark blue tiles along the step edges for safety. We also installed a made to measure stainless steel handrail in the centre of the steps. As the pool had to be empty for these works the owners also opted to have a mosaic dolphin installed and then we re grouted the whole pool. We repaired the coronation where the ladders had been mounted and also installed a salt electrolysis system due to the owner’s sensitivity to chlorine. The end result is a swimming pool perfect for the owner’s requirements.
With this swimming pool in Denia the owner had serious problems with the tiles falling off the pool. Due to the amount of damage the only option was to complete a retile. This allowed the owner to choose the tile colours to their personal preference. We removed all the old tiles, smoothed out and prepared the pool walls and floor for the new tiles, applied two coats of waterproof material and then retiled and grouted the pool. Now the pool looks brand new and has revived the outdoor pool area for the owners to enjoy for many years to come.
This swimming pool in Javea is 40 years old. The pool was looking very tired but the construction was in good order. The original mosaics had delaminated and splintered making it very dangerous. The coronation had also began deteriorating so was in need of updating. The owner also opted for steps to be built rather than stainless steel ladders. We retiled the pool and restored the coronation.
The next stage is to tile the pool to the choice of the client. On this construction the client opted for a dark blue border and step edges to define the steps for entering the pool with a contrasting light blue tile for the rest of the pool.
The terracing around swimming pools is often not considered during the construction. We consider the terrace area an important part of the construction process as this is where you will be spending most of your time when using your pool. Due to the space constraints on this construction we finished the terracing direct to the pool edge to give the client more usable space for sunbathing and relaxing. There are many alternatives and we can advise you on different styles.
