Swimming pool

Recommended Posts

If anyone is interested, I thought I would post some pictures of the construction of our new pool.

This is this morning at 7am

Loving life here in Queensland.

I need to start the ball rolling on citizenship especially as my British passport expires in 2020 and I am not intending to renew it.  Can’t see the point in paying for two passports.

You could have got yourself a decent lap pool that you could actually use on that block.

No, we definitely didn’t want a lap pool. Wouldn’t suit our house or our needs.

None of us are big swimmers, we wanted something that looks beautiful and where we can relax and cool down on hot days.

The pool guys are out there now but I have to go to work now. Will post some mor pics later.

We'll get round to a pool one day... They aren't cheap, I guess you haven't got any access issues! I'll look forward to the updates. 😀

I prefer the idea of a concrete pool, not really sure why. Looking good!

Thanks, we asked advice on whether to go concrete or fibreglass and we were told that cos we have sandy soil, the concrete would be better because the fibreglass tends to move and ripple with the water table. One of our neighbours has had to have a 7 yrs old f.glass pool ripped out because of this.

What have you selected for filtration etc?  I serviced many pools over the last 30 years, very interested in your choice.
