Residential Project In Leicestershire Receives

A Barnstorming Transformation! R

eceiving the brief to convert this old, dilapidated barn in Lutterworth into a state-of-the-art swimming pool hall could have been regarded as a daunting task but not for Northampton pool builder, Mosaic Pools. For them, it was all in a day’s work or, rather… three years’ work! With four decades of working in the wet leisure industry under his belt, Mosaic Pools’ Managing Director Stephen French was more than up to the task of taking on this challenging barn conversion. He knew exactly where to start… a loyal customer for 30 years, he turned to Certikin International to supply the pool’s main ingredients. “I choose Certikin as my supplier because I know my customers will be getting the best, highest quality goods in the marketplace,” said Stephen. “It’s my belief that if you buy cheap, you buy twice but, in any case, Certikin goods are not overpriced.

At times, I thought we were never going to finish it but I am delighted to say that it surpassed their expectations, and on completion, they described the pool as ‘perfection’. It’s great to know that it’s much loved and in daily use.” The project stands as a fine example of how Certikin supplied equipment can transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. The 13m x 6m concrete and tile pool with a 1.5m depth features a PSS block system with 75ml insulation. From its Delta 4, Pool Pilot and Blue Lagoon salt UV System, Top Mount filter, 2 hp Aquaspeed pumps, stainless steel skimmers, sand filter to its Roldeck automatic cover – it is Certikin from top to bottom. An added note of luxury is the Certikin Harvia 3m x 2m steam room. With more than half a century of experience in developing the best Finnish sauna and steam products, Harvia knows the key to wellness. The Harvia range, exclusive to Certikin, expertly combines the relaxing elements of nature – wood, stone and water – and eight different standard steam rooms are offered as ‘off-the-shelf’ products. Each is suitable for domestic or commercial applications and comes flat packed, ready for assembly on site. In addition, Certikin offers a whole variety of bespoke solutions for steam rooms from supplying the room only to all the equipment. Complete rooms with all the equipment include: ceilings, walls, seats, steam generator, LED down lights and transformer, vents and steam cover. Domestic and commercial rooms are available which come flat packed in sections ready for assembly on site for tiling in the customer’s choice of tiles. Choose from a wide range of steam generators from 4.5kW up to 30kW. When it came to heating of the pool and ventilation of the hall, a Calorex Delta featuring touch screen technology in a unique
