The "Endless Summer" Above ground pool is an innovation in the pool market today.
Equally adept it can be either a free standing above ground pool or installed as an inground pool. This pool is extremely robust at a terrific price making it one of the most inexpensive ways to get into the swim of things.
This is unique in the above ground pool market, the pool shell is one piece, no assembly required, once the U brace is placed under the pool giving it additional strength making it fully self supporting. We don't expect you'll have the local footy team perched on the side of your pool but if that happens it means with the U brace the pool will be fine.
Imagine, having your pool structure delivered and pre-assembled. Your pool structure and lining is one piece, solid fiberglass. No little nuts and bolts and no worries about a vinyl liner getting a hole in it.
Fibreglass is a great material to work with, incredibly strong and flexible. As the Endless Summer pool shell is all one piece it quite literally is lifted off the truck and onto the level spot you prepared for it. You connect up the pipes, pump and filter and it's ready to add water.
The pool comes complete with an Onga pump & cartridge filter. You also have the choice to change the filtration to a Sand Filter and you can add a Salt Water Chlorinator if desired and of course all equipment can be upgraded and/or an alternate brand of equipment can be used.
We've also put a bit of thought about getting in and out of the pool.
Very popular option is the steps and gate upgrade. Making an elegant entry or exit is a little easier with this option.The gate at the bottom of the steps is an approved type and serves as a valid pool fence.
The sides of the Endless Summer are 1300mm tall by design, that's 100mm taller than a required pool fence, meaning that if you keep your pool 1200mm away from any climbable object you may not need to fence the shell, only the ladder. If you have purchased the step and gate option you may not need to fence at all*.
*Remember: pool fence or fencing using the step option, your local council or certifier needs to approve it as a barrier which does mean a quick site visit by them before you add water.
Benefits of the Step and Gate Option
This picture is from one of the very first clients, he simply followed the instructions and installed the the Endless Summer pool in the ground. Clearly such a simple and straight forward job, this must make the installers and companies selling fully constructed fibreglass pools nervous as for around about 50% of the price of a fully constructed inground fibreglass pool you're getting about 110% of the structure and 80% of the look when directly compared. Why 110% of the structure? Typically a fibreglass pools relies on the ground around it to support it. As the Endless Summer is free standing it does not need that support. Put it in the ground and it is all the more stronger that the traditional fibreglass pool.
The Endless Summer Hits the Road
We were surprised in our research how often people move house and take their above ground pool with them.
We were not surprised to hear that everyone who had pulled the old vinyl liner pool apart and reassembled it, did not have great success as age-wearied connectors, panels, nuts and bolts often caused concern.
Compare this with an Endless Summer relocation. The Endless Summer is literally a shell (one piece), steps or ladder (second piece), the pump (third), filter (fourth), and U brace (fifth piece) The shell easily lifts onto a truck for the drive to your new location. Moreover if you decided to put down roots, you could always dig a hole and install it, add some paving and a pool fence and there you have it - an inground fibreglass pool.
If we're making it sound all too simple, no apologies, it is.
As each shell's beam is individually trimmed small dimensional changes may occur without notice.
When selecting the step version, and if you are intending to use the pool sides as the fence, make sure you have at least 1.2m all the way around with nothing climbable in that radius. Likewise check that you have enough room for the gate to swing open. As always, when it comes to pool fencing, make sure you play by the rules as they are there for everyone's safety.
|Water Dimensions||7.17m x 3.17m||Shell Dimensions||7.42m x 3.42m|
|Water Depth||1.2m approx. no deep end||Shell Depth||1.3m|
The old way
Now imagine building a pool that is about 7m long and 3m wide and how many bits and bobs you will need - the preparation, the assembly, the cementing of the support structure, spreading of the vinyl liner etc
Think of that as the old way...
...you'll find yourself at the end of it all perhaps humbled but definitely left with a feeling of accomplishment , you've triumphed. Surrounded by tufts of hair, you furtively glance over the top of your beer (for medicinal purposes of course) at the small, but somehow significant pile of left over bits and pieces. Your reverie is interrupted by the wife who asks the only reasonable question that such a event calls for, "Honey,... aren't those bits important?"
The new way
This time the pool shell shows up in one piece. It's totally resin / fiberglass based, perfect for holding about 18,000 ltrs of pool water, nothing to rust, even if it is salt chlorinated.
It's lifted off the truck, put on your level site with the U brace under, you add your pump and filter, add the fence around the steps/ladder and away you go.
