An Effective Addition To Garden-based Pools

Providing all year round swimming, regardless of the unpredictable UK weather, pool enclosures reduce both maintenance and running costs for both commercial and domestic owners, plus they offer built-in safety too. There’s no doubt that choosing an enclosure is an investment, but having one means owners can maximise the full potential of their swimming pool. From the big to the small and to suit any size and shape of pool, we take a look at the options that are available to provide under cover swimming across the UK By Jon Wadeson


f ever there was a right time to invest in an enclosure for a garden-based swimming pool, then the last 18 months have to have been just about perfect. With this year being even more so. With staycations becoming the increasingly normal and sensible thing to do, at least in the short term, pool owners in both residential and commercial sectors are opting for effective cover-ups that mean swimming and pool-based outdoor leisure time can continue way past the normal seasonal shut down. Instead of flying off to exotic locations, families are still looking to relax closer to home and where better to do this than around their own pool or at their holiday park facility. There is a wide selection of fabulous enclosures that come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the majority of site requirements and the most particular of customers too. So in this issue, we take a look at some of the glazed cover-up solutions that are available.

The Swimex Galaxy fixed pool enclosures are great value for money and can be designed to be attached to a house or building, either at the end or on the side of the enclosure, allowing owners and users to walk straight into an all-weather pool area. They have been designed so that all the side walls can be lifted from the floor to a height of 2.1 metres allowing access to the pool from any point at both sides, giving the feeling of an outdoor pool but with a translucent roof above. Inside there is a minimum 2m walking height along the sides approx. 0.5m in from the sides.
