At Albatross Pools, we endeavour to construct the swimming pool of your dreams. When it comes to swimming pool construction, however, there are a few key things to keep in mind. While it is always our goal to complete the job to perfection in the most efficient way possible, several construction factors may affect your build when incorporating your new pool into existing landscaping.
One of the major factors that you'll want to look into prior to the beginning of installation has to do with access. Tight access would require a smaller machine to be used during installation, which would therefore take longer to complete than if easier access had been provided. If you're already working with a landscaper on an existing project, helping to increase the access that our professionals have to your yard would definitely help make things easier and less expensive. Though there is no level of access too small, an ideal situation would see double gates on the side of a house or a similar access point of this nature. Our swimming pool construction team is able to work in restrictive confines if needed, and the tightest access we’ve had to deal with was only a doorway wide! Clearance heights can also be an issue concerning pergolas and rooflines.
One of the major construction factors that will affect build cost when dealing with other providers is slope. Depending on the slope of your yard and the eventual pool, you could be looking at an additional charge that you didn't plan on. Luckily, this is not an issue with Albatross Pools - so long as the pool exists no more than 700mm above the natural ground in your yard, our superior Aqualux PVC membrane and pre-engineered heavy gauge steel frame construction will not require any additional engineering like other pool construction methods.
If you are worried about slope you can have the area levelled off, but this isn't necessarily something that you need to do or that we even recommend that you do.
Another factor that can significantly slow your build down has to do with ground hazards that may be in the area you've chosen. If there are electrical or telephone lines in the pool zone (mostly applies to front yard pool construction) this definitely complicates the process. For rear yard builds, you can obtain sewer plans, but with older homes they are not always accurate. Our advice in this situation is to employ the services of a plumber for the first hours of a build in case pipes need rerouting. Ideally, you should try to pick an area that is free from these types of ground hazards for the best results.
