To create custom water features with the appearance of natural rock, glass-fibreglass-reinforced concrete (GFRC) panels have quickly become popular for pool builders who want flexibility and ease of installation.
Windjammer Park is an 11.5-ha (28.5-acre) waterfront park in the picturesque town of Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, Washington State, situated on the shores of the Puget Sound with beautiful vistas of surrounding mountains and ocean. The park recently underwent a complete renovation including the addition of an iconic, custom-designed splash pad play area.
Although many commercial pools and splash pads have been forced to close during the pandemic, savvy facilities have been using this time as an opportunity to do much needed maintenance or even embark on renovation projects.
So many options can be added to a pool these days that it can sometimes be overwhelming when deciding which ones to offer a customer. To this end, it is important to design a project that can accommodate a number of different options to achieve the client’s idea of their ‘dream pool.’
Fire is mesmerizing; for some it brings them inner peace and tranquility. Water has a similar effect—especially the sound of moving water—as it creates a serene, relaxing environment. Therefore, builders who have the ability to combine these features on a pool project will be able to heighten the client’s attraction to their new outdoor oasis and, as a result, get more enjoyment out of their backyard.
Today’s backyards are a far cry from the kidney-shaped pools and concrete patios of our parents’ era. Advances in technology are bringing amazing new changes to swimming pool products and design, opening up a whole new spectrum of possibilities for backyard fun.
There is always money to be made anytime a pool contractor enters a backyard—whether opening/closing a pool, starting a new project, or taking on a renovation. One of the best ways to do this is to offer products that do not shutdown the pool for a prolonged period, but rather can be easily added in a few hours or even one day.
