Aquacomet: For a British summer that is as unpredictable as the weather!

Devon undeniably gets more hours of sunshine than much of the British Isles but it is still subject to the whims of an unpredictable climate. So, for this Tiverton pool owner, looking to get the most out of the family’s new swimming pool, installing a Certikin Aquacomet enclosure, with all its flexible options, was a no-brainer.

Somerset based pool builders, Purepools, were given the brief to create a good family-sized indoor pool at a farm overlooking the stunning Lowman valley. Located on the hillside, it affords breath taking views of the surrounding countryside but the downside is its exposure to the elements. Installing an enclosure to maximise the pool’s use was a decision made at the outset.

Manager of Purepools, Stewart Skinner says: “The site is subject to strong winds so swimming without some sort of enclosure would, on most days, be unpleasant. I had no hesitation in recommending Certikin’s Aquacomet enclosures as I have fitted them in the past using their team of installers and it has been a very straight-forward process. They look good, are robust and are highly versatile. They have a superior build quality when compared to others in the marketplace. I like Certikin products because you know you’re buying quality and everyone is very supportive should you need some advice or back-up. This support and technical back-up is so important to a busy pool builder.

“For this site, I chose a lean-to telescopic enclosure which opens from the middle. The garage was converted to make a changing room which the pool adjoins. The whole project took about six months from start to finish, and features a large amount of Certikin equipment including Certikin’s revolutionary OC-1 Filtration Media which I am now recommending for all my pools, a Multicyclone, titanium Bowman heat exchanger, oil-fired boiler, two Vaporex through the wall dehumidifiers with air-heater batteries, Rainbow feeder for bromine tablets, plus all Certikin fittings such as lights, top-up unit, etc.”

Delighted with the result, the owner says: “I am over the moon with it! My two teenage boys enjoy hours of fun in the pool and it is a good focus for family entertaining. Thanks to the enclosure, the pool season is greatly extended and we could, if we want, swim all year. Sitting in the enclosure is as pleasant as swimming. If I close all the windows, the greenhouse effect takes the enclosure up to 40 degrees C even in April on a sunny day. I expect my heating costs in the summer to be negligible. Furthermore, it is both child and pet safe. You can simply lock the sliding doors. There are no drafts and swimming is a pleasure. I recommend a pool enclosure as the perfect home swimming solution."
