  • Spools: Where Spas and Pools Collide

    Have you been thinking about having a pool installed on your property, but aren't sure you want to fully commit to having a large pool taking up a substantial portion of your outdoor living space? If so, then you may want to consider having a Courtyard Series Pool installed on your property. These innovative pool designs are quickly gaining popularity, especially as larger home floor plans inevitably lead to smaller yard sizes for many Australians.

    What is a Courtyard Pool?

    Specifically, a courtyard pool combines the best features of a pool and spa. These pools are smaller in size (similar to that of a spa), while still being large enough to accommodate several people in a casual, relaxing environment. Furthermore, these "spools" are extremely versatile not only in their size and design, but in their available features as well.

    For example: Somebody who wants to enjoy the fitness benefits of a swimming pool without the large size and maintenance that comes along with a "traditional" pool can have swim jets installed in a spool, allowing them to swim continuously in-place. Think of it in the same way you would use a treadmill!

    Benefits of "Spools"

    There are numerous benefits to installing a courtyard spa-pool (or spool) on your property. The first benefit comes if you have a smaller property footprint; you may have thought that you would never be able to have a pool on your property without giving up all your green space. With a spool, you can have the best of both worlds. You can design your spool to be a focal point or simply allow it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your yard.

    Furthermore, because of their smaller size, spools also tend to be much more affordable in cost, making pool ownership attainable to many. Combine this with the easier maintenance and running costs and you have a swimming pool and entertainment solution that's fit for just about any budget or lifestyle.

    Spools are incredibly customisable as well, so you can truly tailor it to your taste and requirements. Each Courtyard Series Pool features a variety of step and bench designs, which we call comfort seats, located in the shallow end for you to choose from. This child-friendly seating area incorporates a unique cushioned underlining for enhanced comfort that is unique to Albatross Pools. Additional steps can be designed into the seating area with many designs available across our Standard, Alternative and Enhanced Standard seat options range.
