There is a wide variety of pools from which to choose from. This guide will help you decide on what kind is right for you.
A rectangular, long and narrow pool with lanes for swimmers to practise laps.
A serene, shallow pool that enhances a picturesque landscape. It is generally not suited for swimming.
A shallow water play area that is perfect for children and toddlers.
The pool most often found in private homes and resorts. It contains a moderate amount of water that is suitable for swimming and other leisure activities.
Similar to a recreation pool, a diving pool also includes a deep end for safe diving.
The Skimmer Pool is the most common system built for private residential properties, and hence the kind you are most likely to see in your neighbour or your friend’s house. It keeps itself clean thanks to the skimmers that clear debris such as leaves and twigs before they reach the bottom of the pool.
The Overflow Pool is a pool with a channel built along the perimeter into which water overflows. This creates a striking visual effect, making it seem as though there is a sheet of glass over the water.
The Wet Coping Pool works very much like an overflow pool, however instead of having a traditional 20cm wide channel with plastic grating or pebbles, a 3cm opening is created to capture the overflowing water.
The Infinity Pool is a striking luxury design that originated in France. Its design is an optical illusion, leading the viewer to think that the water is merging into the surrounding scenery, giving the impression of a never-ending 'infinity' pool.
Shotcrete, short for shot-concrete, is a construction technology that has been adopted as an industry standard in recent years. Concrete pools are far superior to any other kind of pool in terms of both design versatility and quality. Shotcrete is watertight, dense and an extremely durable construction material that can bond with many materials.
Depths are normally preferred from 0.9 meters at the shallow end and 1.7 meters at the deep, although this too can be tailored to anything you prefer. You can choose the desired shape from our vast collection of designs, or work with us to come up with your own. Unlike prefabricated fiberglass pools, you can let your imagination run wild while designing a concrete pool.

Murals in pools (or on a wall) are designs or pictures created by embedding small colored pieces into a bed of fixative. We use reflective glass tiles in a multitude of colors to create a spectacular light-show every time you turn the lights on or when the sun’s up. And you don’t have to restrict your love for mosaic murals to the inside of the pool, either. Pool borders, patios, walls surrounding the pools, fountains, spas, saunas, kitchens, bathrooms and even your porch or foyer can all do with a mural. All the better to create a stir amongst your guests.
You can select a design from our great portfolio of murals like the ones pictured below, or have us come up with a design specially for you. Intricate designs are also possible by digitally printing images permanently on to the mosaics.
