London Swimming Pool Company
The brief was to create an integrated pool and spa that runs on a combined filtration system in order to use the minimum amount of space for the plant room, whilst also providing the highest quality water treatment and hydrotherapy spa.
In addition, the client wanted just one automatic solar cover to conceal both the pool and spa when they are not in use, rather than having separate covers.
This contemporary, luxury 6 x 3m pool belies the smart technology and design applied to achieve exactly what the client wanted, and shows just what can be achieved in a small space.
The requirements posed the question of how to raise the spa water temperature without raising the pool water temperature simultaneously. This was achieved by installing a barrier that can be lifted into place to separate the pool and spa when the pool cover is off and the waters open.
For pool sanitisation, a Dryden Aqua DAISY+ system was installed. DAISY+ is rapidly becoming the hygiene system of choice for luxury pools because it provides far superior filtration – it reduces chlorine / chemical consumption, running costs and provides pristine water quality by preventing bacteria growth from starting.
A HydroStar swim unit and a hydrotherapy bath have been installed in the pool for therapeutic exercise. The HydroStar generates a smooth, powerful current that flows evenly over the bather. The system is ideal for both wellness and challenging swim training.
White porcelain tiles finish the pool surround. An Ocea polycarbonate solar black pool and spa cover complements the colours used elsewhere in the home, including the changing rooms.
A new extension, built of brick and large areas of glass, is centred around the contemporary pool. The kitchen doors can be opened up to connect the kitchen space to the pool and outside entertaining area, which is complete with BBQ and seating areas.
This pool is a fine example of what can be achieved in a small space: there is high-end quality hydrotherapy, the best swim training, no compromise water treatment and contemporary design.
