Sunken Swimming Pools
Our luxury above ground pools can be sunk to give a level deck and inground pool appearance.
By burying them partly or almost completely, a sunken pool can be built for a lot less money than an ordinary inground swimming pool. They look beautiful landscaped and surrounded with decking or paving.
How to sink your pool
A hole is dug with a gap about one foot all round the pool and the pool erected in it and filled with water. It is then necessary to back fill with a dry sand and cement mix after lining the outside of the walls with polystyrene to protect them. (Detailed sinking instructions on request.) Many of our customers feel confident doing the work themselves, so the cost of this type of pool is kept low. If you do need help with installation we will endeavour to introduce you to an installer in your area who can quote to put in the pool and any landscaping needed.
Sunken luxury pools kits
Supplied with pump, filter, plumbing, liner & wall system, and either an A-frame ladder, or an inpool deck-ladder which fastens to the deck around the pool and provides steps on the inside of the pool only. The pipework and plumbing is usually solid like an inground pool so that it can be buried, enabling the filtration to be sited away from the pool without visible trailing pipes. The pump is self priming and the sand filter is as supplied with inground pools. So any heater or accessory that works with a traditional in ground pool can also be used with a sunken pool. Some customers even purchase a counter current swim jet so that they can have a small pool but still swim cotinuously without turning.
We have an extensive range of fixed sizes, ranging from 12ft diameter circles to 33ft x 18ft ovals. The most popular is 24ft x 12ft. Please click below for details.
We suggest you measure the space available then look at our prices and see which pools are available that will fit. Most oval pools are braceless these days, but you still need to leave about 18 inches along each straight side for underground supports. Braced pools need an extra 3 foot each side.
Our customers have been building sunken pools in this way for many years so we are well qualified to advise you on what you will need. We also guarantee to give you the best prices in the UK.
