Many homeowners interested in an indoor pool assume that they need to have a new extension constructed in order to house it created. However, a basement is often an underutilised space that could be perfect for a swimming pool.

There are many advantages to choosing your basement as the space for your pool. Firstly, it is available all-year-round, no matter the weather. It is also easier to keep clean, as the water cannot be contaminated with soil, bird droppings or other debris.

We are the only swimming pool designers in the UK who offer our patented carbon ceramic technology. Our pools are constructed in one piece in carbon ceramic material which makes it extremely long lasting and durable.
