Solid Concrete Pool Kits

The walls of Solid Concrete Pools are typically constructed from a double layer of concrete blocks with steel reinforcing between them. The pool floor is made from reinforced concrete tied into walls without joints. The entire pool shell must be waterproofed using a proprietary render, since these type of pools do not use a separate vinyl liner. A commercially available alternative to concrete is 'gunite' - a cement mixture which is sprayed onto a continuous steel framework. One major advantage of building a concrete shell pool is the opportunity to make it completely free-form, and the pool can be finished in various ways depending on taste and budget. Walk in steps can also be constructed in situ as integral parts of the pool structure.

Having no separate liner, the construction of solid concrete pools must be perfectly sound; if not, cracks can appear which could cause potentially catastrophic leaks. Building a concrete pool is not a DIY job, and necessary expertise and experience is essential. If you use a qualified expert to reduce chances of problems later, expect the finished pool to cost twice as much as other techniques.

The below table include typical dimensions and their costs. Once you have purchased the kit nearest to what you are planning, the possibilities with regard to pool shape and size are virtually infinite!

Our excellent value-for-money pool kits are more comprehensive than our basic packages and include everything you need to build your pool, except basic building materials like cement, sand, and concrete blocks (available from local builders' merchants). Optional extra items include underwater lights and coping stones.

Our luxury pool kits include:

  • Extra pipe & fittings
  • Heavy duty pump
  • Vacuum-point for easy pool cleaning
  • Individual valves on three separate suction lines (for skimmer, main drain, and the vacuum point) so that each can be controlled independently
  • Fittings for under-pool ground drainage (as required)

Options for your pool:

  • Paint: One of the cheapest options, but needs re-applying every few years. Rubber-based paints last longer than water-based versions, but may be harder to repaint. The finished surface is usually non-slip.
  • Marblite: Marble-based cement plaster which produces a smooth finish. Attractive when newly polished but porous and prone to permanent staining and problems if the acid/alkali balance of the water is not maintained correctly. It is not possible to mosaic a marbelite surface because tiles won't stick.
  • Tiles: Mosaics look beautiful when skillfully applied. Ceramic or glass, they come in a wide variety of colours and textures. They can create superb individual finishes and lovely tile bands. Motifs like dolphins are available, and with computer aided design we can reproduce your own personalised touches. Mosaics, though not cheap, are long lasting and easy to clean.
  • Fibreglass: We can arrange a specialist to lay a coloured fibreglass finish onto the concrete walls. The finish is potentially long lasting, but expensive to repair properly if damaged or bleached. This technique tends to be used to renovate old or damaged pools rather than finish new ones.
