We’ve just commissioned a swimming pool ready for next year – amazingly it only takes 20 days to build! Construction on the 4.5 x 11m pool begins at the end of October which gives Andy plenty of time to pave the area around it for that all important sunbathing. The picture is an illustration of what it will look like – there will be ‘scala romana’ at one end, the semi-circular steps coming into the pool at the shallow end. There will be quite a large area of shallow water to keep it safe for little ones, but eventually plunging to 2.10m so plent of space for diving in and doing lengths. We’ve also selected a salt water system – no smell of bleach and nice and soft on the skin. We intend to get a pool alarm which detects a change in water volume from as little as 15lb (about 7kg), to help keep children safe.
