Great Grating Provides The Perfect Pool Finishing Touch Located just 15 miles from Oxford, the Old Swan & Minster Mill is nestled in 65 acres of idyllic grounds in the picturesque village of Minster Lovell. This quintessentially English inn has recently seen the addition of the Garden Spa – a tranquil haven which includes an indoor heated plunge pool, rock sauna and aroma steam room. The architect, Michael Pilkington appointed Oxfordshire pool builders, Clearwater Pools, to construct the 9m x 4m pool. It was quite a task as all works had to be completed within a 20 week timeframe but Clearwater more than stepped up to the plate with the final result being this stunning tiled pool surrounded by Certikin’s HDPE grating. Clearwater Swimming Pools, who have been constructing both private and commercial swimming pools for over 40 years, chose the high quality grating because of its eye catching good looks and high impact strength. It can be made to suit any existing or new grating channel and it comes in any depth, any width and virtually any colour. Certikin can also manufacture bespoke items from HDPE such as manhole covers, drain covers, inlet covers and steam diffusers. Certikin’s HDPE has proved a massive success story thanks to the company investing in the impressively named and sizeable Maxi-m5 2030 twin head, twin ATC precision CNC Router at Certikin’s HQ

In addition, kits include a multi-cyclone pre-filter that helps improve water clarity and pool plant efficiency – saving thousands of gallons of water normally lost through traditional backwashing methods. The high efficiency range of DURA pumps have proven very popular with UK pool owners as they deliver good all-round value and low running costs. What’s more, they’re covered by a two-year warranty. Built to a high specification, they benefit from oversized titanium heat exchangers and
are highly resistant to corrosion by salt, chlorine and bromine. Importantly, swimmer pool kits are supplied in a single delivery – complete with high quality pool fittings plus vacuum and chemical equipment – ensuring that pools can be created as efficiently as possible. The Swimmer Giveaway offer runs until the end of September 2017. Golden Coast Managing Director Jamie Adams said: “The DURA is the perfect addition to an already excellent pool kit. The Platinum and Mercury Swimmer Pool Kits represented great value for money before. But, now, with a free heat pump, they’re truly unmissable.” Golden Coast 01271 378100 www.goldenc.com
