    Small Pools for Confined Spaces

    Outdoor living is synonymous with the Australian lifestyle but as homes become larger to accommodate expansive floor plans, the outdoor garden space is becoming increasingly smaller leaving very little room for a conventional swimming pool.

    Albatross Pools are pleased to introduce the Courtyard Series, three small pools designed for confined spaces. A Courtyard Series pool can simply be a pleasing aesthetic addition to your garden creating a tranquil and serene feature, or a point of entertainment providing a fun place for escape and relaxation for your family and friends. Best of all, due to the compact nature of the Courtyard Series pools, they are extremely easy and low cost to maintain and heat year round.

    Top Five Benefits of a Small Pool

    1. Small pools are ideally suited to maximise the limited area available in small spaces, i.e. courtyards, small backyards or front yards, side of the home
    2. Containing up to 20,000L worth of water (average pool contains 45,000L), a small pool is cost effective to operate (power and chemical consumption) compared to standard pool running costs
    3. Alternate heating options (including gas pool heating and electric pool heating) are cost effective to run year round on a small pool, delivering year-round use and the best value from your investment
    4. Featuring a smaller surface area than a traditional sized pool, a small pool is low maintenance
    5. Small pools offer increased multifunctional options above simply being a place to plunge into on a hot summer’s day. Depending on the enhancement options, a small pool can be a spa in winter, a place for year round fitness and hydrotherapy (with the assistance of Swim Jets or even a harness for the more budget conscious) or even a stunning illuminated water feature when not in use

    Introducing The Courtyard Series

    No two outdoor spaces are the same nor are the functional or aesthetical requirements of each client. For this reason, Albatross Pools specialise in inground pre-engineered steel swimming pools individually designed and built to best suit a client's outdoor space and lifestyle.

    Established in 1969, Albatross Pools has the knowledge and experience to present the Courtyard Series, three unique pools specifically designed to work within the parameters of confined outdoor spaces. The Petite, The Classique and The Grande are rectangular in shape, range in size and feature a wraparound purpose built comfort seat in the shallows. Alternate seat designs are available along with a myriad of colours and enhancement options to choose from including CleanAssist™, Ionic Fresh Water Purification, Swim Jets, Heating Systems and much more.

    1. The Petite             Pool Length: 4.0m      Pool Width: 2.0m
    2. The Classique      Pool Length: 5.0m      Pool Width: 2.5m
    3. The Grande          Pool Length: 5.5m      Pool Width: 2.75m

    If required, each size can be tailored to suit your specific space requirements, i.e. The Petite is 4.0m in length but if you desire a 4.2m pool, The Petite pool structure can be altered to accommodate this additional length.

    Please note: the measurements listed are internal pool shell measurements.

    How to Customise your Courtyard Series Pool

    Although the Courtyard Series features three set pool sizes, like all pools built by Albatross, the Courtyard Series range can be completely customised to suit your exact space and lifestyle requirements.

    Choose your Pool's Seat Design

    Each Courtyard Series pool features a classically designed step and comfort seat spanning the full width of the pool, easily accommodating your family and friends. The seating area incorporates a unique gently padded underlining laminate (exclusive to Albatross Pools) providing a cushioned effect - the kids will absolutely love it (and you will too)! Alternate seat designs and wraparound comfort seat designs are available.

    Select your Favourite Pool Colour

    A Courtyard Series pool features a sanitised waterproof Aqualux PVC membrane that is both satin smooth and non-slip. Whilst soft to touch, it remains an extremely tough pool interior requiring virtually no maintenance and cannot chip, peel, crack, separate, leech chemicals or blister-like some other pool interiors. Aqualux is available in a multitude of colours from ocean resort-style blues through to modern patterns and metallic designs. Choose to make a bold statement with a dark colour or opt for a lighter colour and your pool will blend into its natural courtyard surrounds.

    Add Enhancement Options to Your Courtyard Pool

    You have now chosen your pool size, comfort seat design and pool interior colour. Adding your chosen enhancement options is the next and final step in customising your Courtyard Series pool. Your budget, desired lifestyle and how you intend to entertain family and friends in your new outdoor space should be kept in mind when considering each Courtyard Series pool enhancement option.

    Choose from:

    • Upgrade from a standard pool pump to an Energy Efficient Pool Pump
    • Looking for an alternative to chlorinated salt pool water? Upgrade to an environmentally friendly Ionic Fresh Water Purification system
    • Although small pools require very little maintenance, you may enjoy the benefits of a Robotic Pool Cleaner or even CleanAssist™
    • Set the mood by choosing to add an underwater LED light– single colour and multi coloured options are available
    • Cost effective to heat. You may like to consider solar, gas or electric pool heating for your small pool
    • Keep your pool free of debris, avoid evaporation loss and retain your pool’s heat with a pool cover
    • Looking for a low impact workout to improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscle and joint strength but don’t have the room for a lap pool? Enhance your Courtyard Series pool with a powerful Swim Jet System
    • Experience the ultimate in relaxation and turn your comfort seat area into a multipurpose spa with the added enhancement of an alternate jet system, choose from Standard Spa Jets (jets only) or Turbo Power Jets (jets with a spa blower)
