Things to consider when deciding the construction of a pool:

1. The Location of Your Pool.

The pool should be positioned away from trees, so that it benefits from as much sun as possible.

2. The Size of Your Pool.

A normal family size swimming pool is usually 10m x 5m x 2m (32' x 16' x 6'9"),
Clearwater are able to cater for any size, when given the dimensions.

Due to the present day high costs of heating it is considered practical to restrict the size of the pool. Clearwater believe that it is far more sensible to have a smaller heated pool than a larger pool that is too expensive to keep up to temperature.

The following points should also be considered :

a. The filtration system will require housing, sometimes an existing building or summerhouse can be utilized, if near to the pool. Position the filter as close to the pool as possible, to obtain maximum performance from the pump.

b. Supply of electricity.

c. Convenience of pumping water to waste, to a drain, ditch or soak away. When the filter is cleaned a quantity of water is back washed to waste.

d. Availability of water supply, although usually a garden hose to the nearest tap is all that is required.

e. Proximity of pool to house, for toilet and changing rooms.

f. Possibility of using house central heating boiler for heating the pool.

g. If a gas, electric heater, or heat pump is used for the pool, this is positioned by the filter, and the cost of electrical or gas connection must be considered.

h. Most mains services are usually located in the front garden, however before commencing digging do a thorough check.

3. Should I have the pool installed or buy a kit?

This is your own choice, but there is normally quite a difference in the ultimate cost. The construction of a pool using a Clearwater Vinyl Liner Kit is well within the scope and ability of the average person. Many customers of ours use a local brick layer for the actual building and the rendering of the pool walls and floor.

Clearwater are always available to extend our advice and can assure prospective customers that the installation is not difficult.


Extras to consider for your pool are:


There are no sites where the pool cannot be installed without full confidence. However, like all swimming pools and vinyl liner pools in particular, care should be taken when installing in very wet sites. Please feel free to ask Clearwater Swimming Pools for their advice.

Regardless of who our client is or what style of pool is being constructed, our approach is always the same,
to give the best possible service to construct the best possible Pool.
