Neptune - Coverstar Swimming Pool Cover

The brief was simple: a luxurious in-ground tiled pool that is cost effective to operate. Executing it, however, was not quite as straightforward as it may seem. With a little help from Certikin, Hampshire-based Neptune Swimming Pools achieved a fantastic result and a very satisfied customer.

“After meeting the client on-site, it was clear that this wasn’t just another backyard liner pool install” states Lee Campbell, Neptune’s managing director. “The client’s request was simple but exacting – a large in ground fully tiled pool which was both luxurious and cost effective to operate.”

“All was going well until we discovered that the site was on the very edge of the salt marshes. A specialist ground works team was engaged to provide constant dewatering for what seemed like a lifetime until the external walls of the basement and building were constructed and cured.”

Standard white Certikin shell fittings were installed into the shuttering prior to the concrete pour. Flexi pipe work was run around the pool to the basement plant room. Certikin’s white LED lights were installed to compliment the pool hall’s other LED light systems.

After careful consideration, a Coverstar safety cover was commissioned, covered with heavy duty lid trays and extended brackets so the floor tiles could continue across the cover pit. The Certikin engineers were even able to reverse the boom, so it was set lower across the pool and therefore hidden when the cover was off the pool.

“This project has been one of largest projects to date and to see it from humble beginnings to its completion has been an absolute pleasure. I would like to pass on special thanks to Ryan Collins, in the Coverstar department for his patience, understanding and professionalism.”

“I would also like to thank everyone at Certikin for providing a one-stop shop of first class products.”
