Sydney’s summer days are long, hot, and sunny. In order to escape the heat and spend quality time with family and friends, there is nothing more relaxing than diving into a swimming pool.
Your swimming pool, as well as the surrounding space, should be designed to promote relaxation and restoration. Exquisite concrete pool surrounds are vital components of establishing a relaxed ambience, making the pool area a personal statement about you as an individual, and transforming your pool into a work of art.
Different Styles of Concrete Pool Surrounds
Exposed aggregate pool surround is created by putting course materials into the concrete, such as a range of quartzes, pebbles, or natural stones, and allowing the concrete to dry naturally after mixing. Once the concrete has dried, the aggregates along the surface of the concrete provide adequate traction for the pool surrounds while also adding to its natural beauty.
Pavement with polished aggregate is constructed in the same manner as concrete with exposed aggregate. The only difference is that we use abrasive discs to grind and polish the surface of the concrete after it has dried in order to give it a more opulent appearance when it has been finished.
The usage of polished aggregate concrete in pool areas is safe, but if you would like additional slide resistance, we may put an anti-slip coating to the surface of the pool surrounds to help prevent accidents. Anti-slip coatings are made up of an adhesive base and fine aggregate particles to promote friction and grip on surfaces.
Things You Should Know About Concrete Pool Surrounds
1. Concrete pool surrounds construction takes time.
It takes time to do quality work, and this is especially true for concrete in-ground swimming pools. The excavation of the design into the ground, the application of the layers of concrete, and the drying of the surface before the application of finishing touches are all parts of a lengthy procedure. As a result, most homeowners begin swimming pool installation well before the summer season begins, ensuring that their pool is ready for use when the season begins.
The construction of a concrete pool takes an average of 3–6 months to complete. During that period, the concrete pool shell must be left empty for 30 days to allow the concrete to cure properly.
2. The construction process is messy.
Pool construction is inherently untidy, but a concrete pool that is currently under construction is particularly unpleasant. A hose is being used to spray concrete, and the concrete is getting everywhere because of the wind. They are attempting to control the problem, but there is a great deal of dust and over-spraying.
Take that figure and multiply it by three to six months. Discuss a difficult scenario that has occurred. That is right, you thought the dishes on the kitchen counter were a terrible thing.
3. Unbalanced water can damage the pool surface.
The process of setting up a concrete pool is extremely complex and time-consuming. Unless you perform it correctly (for example, if the pH, hardness, or chlorine levels are incorrect), you risk staining or damaging the surface.
4. Multiple phases involve multiple teams
A concrete pool is designed, built, and installed entirely in your own backyard. Ten phases are involved, with each phase requiring a different skillset from the participant. Sometimes you will have one person excavating, another person tying steel, another person doing plumbing, another person shooting the pool shell, one company for the tiles, another company for the plaster, and another for the coping and decking. All of those different phases might represent a variety of different persons. That is a lot of individuals who are coming into your backyard at the same time.
5. Concrete pools are less conventional than vinyl pools.
Vinyl pools, which are constructed of a thin, elastic liner, are the most commonly encountered type of swimming pool in the world. In-ground swimming pools are typically constructed of concrete or grey concrete, however vinyl pools are becoming increasingly popular as a result of their lower cost. Concrete, on the other hand, is highly recommended by top pool builders because of its durability.
6. Concrete is essential for out of the box designs
Pools with unusual shapes, such as natural pond-like shapes, complex Grecian designs, or built-in elements such as a swim-up bar, must be constructed of concrete. What is the reason for this? Vinyl, fibreglass and other pool materials are less adaptable and versatile than concrete, and they are more difficult to shape into distinctive patterns than concrete.
