  • A Small Pool Can Still Make An Impressive Statement

    It doesn’t have to be grand to impress. Sometimes pools of the large variety can visually overtake the surrounds. And then there’s the cost factor. If you think about it, and of course it depends on the space available, a courtyard pool can be just as impressive, even more so when you surround it with tasteful landscaping and special design features.

    Let’s face it; the outdoor garden space is becoming smaller, which means there’s less space to put in a conventional swimming pool. That’s why the team at Albatross Pools has created The Courtyard Series. With this pool series there’s a real emphasis on aesthetics, practicality and costs. The Courtyard Series can work as a beautiful, tranquil feature as well as a great centre point for entertainment. And cost? Well it can be reduced. The simple thing is that the courtyard pools are extremely easy to maintain and heat all year round, so naturally your costs come down.

    Now with an outdoor space, naturally everything varies. There’s also the functionality and the look of the pool to consider. Albatross Pools have that part of the equation totally covered. They have three unique pools that are specifically designed to work within the parameters of confined outdoor spaces. So they’ve cleverly designed The Petite, The Classic and The Grande, all made of pre-engineered steel. They’re rectangular in shape, range in size and feature a wrap-around purpose built comfort seat in the shallows. A range of seat designs are available along with a fantastic collection of colours. They also include some excellent options like CleanAssist, Ionic Fresh Water Purification, Swim Jets, heating systems and a whole lot more.

    Now with The Courtyard Series, there are some really special features. They all have energy efficient pool pumps that are complete with a water efficient cartridge filter. Your filtration costs can be reduced even further if you choose to upgrade your standard pool pump to an eight star energy efficient variable speed pump. Quiet operation enables off-peak filtration and the three speed setting delivers optimal flow rates for your pool.

    Due to the compact nature of The Courtyard Series, together with significant advancements in pool equipment, they require very little maintenance which gives you one less thing to worry about. However if you require a virtually free maintenance option, Albatross Pools have developed CleanAssist which have two dirt removing base drains together with a series of strategically placed jets designed to sweep the pool floor.

    Here’s a good idea. If you’re looking to improve your health and fitness, you could install a swim jet system. Quiet in operation, it delivers adjustable smooth water flow which allows you to set your own pace and swim great lengths. For effective efficient operation, a minimum pool length of 4.5m is ideal. And that’s The Classique and The Grande.

    Small pools can be a brilliant addition. If you want to know more of how perfect they can be for your home, speak to our friendly Albatross Pools team. We’ll give you the best advice in the business.
