Fibreglass swimming pool on steep site, by Mayfair Pools

Elevating this new swimming pool has maximised a great view, created a level entry, and avoided the need for a pool fence, says Mayfair Pools

A flat site is no longer a prerequisite for a swimming pool. Today, it's all about lifestyle, and pools are placed to enhance an outdoor entertaining area, which may involve a sloping site.

This was precisely the case for this new pool built by Mayfair Pools agent Richard Rowley.

"The location for this project was not particularly easy, as the pool needed to be built on a hillside, on soil that had not been compacted when the house was built," Rowley says. "Major engineering was required to ensure that the pool would be stable."

Rowley says it was decided to build the fibreglass pool above the ground to meet the level of the existing deck. This also meant that on the downhill side, the pool would be high enough to form its own pool fencing. And the view across the valley could be maintained.

The pool colour is Atlantic Blue Glitter. This is contrasted by flamed black granite coping stones, which complement the natural landscape.

The pool is heated by a heat pump, and features a Zodiac salt chlorinator.
