There are several options for choosing the ideal outdoor pool as a home swimming pool
for your garden.
A fully tiled, reinforced concrete pool is the top of the range option.
Usually finished with tiles or mosaics, concrete pools can be as glamorous and elaborative as you want to make it, with prices starting at around £55,000.
While this may seem a lot of money, many such pools will last up to 30 years – which actually makes them fantastic value in the long term.
For those looking for a mid-priced investment, a panel or liner pool offers a realistic alternative with prices starting around £30,000.
Taking about a month to install, liners will need replacing every ten years or so and come in a variety of colours and patterns including very convincing mock tiling or mosaic.
A quick-fix alternative, and gaining in popularity all the time is the one-piece pool that can be up and running within a week and will cost upwards from around £20,000.
These are available as fibreglass or ceramic all-in-one moulds and are simply lowered into a pre-prepared hole. They use the same technology as that used by builders of luxury motor cruisers and can be fitted with all the necessary equipment, such as skimmers, drain, inlets, pump filter and lights, before they are even delivered.
There is now a good choice of wooden pools available that can make fabulous garden features especially when they are set off with complementary decking. Prices will start around £6,000.
