ABOVE-GROUND & WOODEN POOLS

For 2021, SCP have introduced two new ranges of above-grounds pools from the Garden Leisure brand

of sizes and are quick to set up. Produced by an ISO 9001 Quality system certified manufacturing company, they feature a 60mm top frame and self supporting metal frame structure. Each Niagara’s high quality polyester fabric pool liner has been treated against algae and UV, and each pool has a skimmer placed in a pocket in the pool liner corner. These innovative pools feature 15 patents across the full range and come with a kit which includes 6m3/h sand filter, skimmer, security ladder, cleaning kit and connections. Four new models make up the new Garden Leisure wooden pools range, with the largest being the 6m x 4.19m rectangular Summer Oasis. Each of these kit pools can be installed above-, in- or partially in-ground and come with a five year wood warranty. Made from dense scandinavian 45mm high quality timber, each kit comes with all structure hardware fittings in stainless steel, detachable external wooden steps, stainless steel internal ladder, Anti-bacterial felt and 0.75 light blue liner. In addition to a Startup Water Treatment Kit, other equipment includes: • Sand filter c/w 6 way valve including all accessories (hoses, connectors, sand) • Pump 12m3/h • Wide angle skimmer and inlet (quantity dependent on pool size). These two new ranges join Garden Leisure’s popular range of AGP above-ground pools

which SCP have been selling for a number of years. Some models within the AGP range have also been enhanced for the 2021 season.

UK-MADE ABOVE-GROUND POOLS FROM THE TEAM BEHIND LIGHTHOUSE Available through Lighthouse and manufactured in Devon using insulation from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles, HeatForm above-ground pools are entirely flexible, available in unlimited lengths and widths and come with three height options. These above-ground pools are quick and easy to install, allowing them to be put in a garden, basement or building where an in-ground pool would not always be possible. Their modular construction also allows easy access to tight spaces such as basement builds and awkward sloping gardens. Manufactured in fibreglass, the smooth clean-faced panels are easy to handle and connect together, allowing them to be fixed, aligned and secured quickly. A steel support system surrounds the panels creating a strong and sturdy structure, which is bolted to a concrete floor slab. Adjustable elements are

built into the design to remove alignment issues and ensure a perfect finish to the pool project. Each pool can be customised with a pool liner of choice and owners can select from a wide range of Zodiac pool products (pumps, robotic pool cleaners, heating and water treatment solutions) to complete the ultimate pool package. Bespoke extras include external cladding kits to ensure that the pool reflects each owners’ personal taste and fits with the surrounding environment. Counter-current exercise jets can also add an extra fitness element to the pool. The benefits of using recycled plastic insulation are twofold; as well as the ecological benefits of repurposing plastic bottles and removing them from the environment, the 80mm thick insulation

CASE STUDY THE ONLY WAY FOR WOODEN POOLS IS ESSEX CERTIKIN! When it comes to the selection of an above-ground pool, the only way for Essex contractor, SPS Swimming Pools & Spas, is Certikin. Long time fans of its market-leading wooden pool, SPS found demand soared in lockdown with customers looking for a high-quality product that would have them swimming in their back gardens with minimal effort and the speediest installation. “The Certikin wooden pool ticks every box for us and our clients,” said Mel Spencer, the director of the family-run business based in Clacton-on-Sea. “I’m happy to say we were run off our feet with click and collect orders during lockdown, and construction and installation continued to keep us busy

throughout. We were inundated with clients looking for a ‘quick fix’ to get them up and swimming in their back gardens. The wooden pool, of course, fits that bill beautifully, with the added bonus that it does not in any way compromise on quality.” Mel added: “We install a lot of wooden pools and we always get the sense we are

building for the future, it’s a quality product that will stand the test of time. The fact that it has no side buttresses or ugly concreted-in steel supports means that it looks good, but its benefits are not just cosmetic – it is so well braced and robust. You know that the wood won’t warp and will continue to look attractive well into the future. With its ability to be sunk into the ground, it is also super versatile. It’s not the cheapest wooden pool on the market but I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for.” SPS 01255 818381 www.spspoolandspa.com
