YES IT’S AN INVESTMENT, BUT AN ENCLOSURE MEANS OWNERS CAN MAXIMISE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF A SWIMMING POOL WEEK IN, WEEK OUT.

oday’s swimming pool enclosures come in a plethora of shapes, sizes and finishes. Low level, standing height, telescopic or fixed the


choices are almost infinite. For commercial pools an enclosure is a cost effective method of extending the season and increasing revenue. In all outdoor pools the addition of an enclosure also means that airborne debris is reduced thereby cutting down on maintenance and chemical consumption so saving time and energy. Most of the enclosures double as a safety cover and are lockable so preventing unauthorised access. Aesthetically pleasing and with the ability to blend into any surroundings an enclosure is the perfect pool addition to thwart inclement weather and bring an outdoor pool indoors.


Neil Dalziel of Aquaflex sums up the advantages of pool enclosures: “Full height enclosures most closely imitate the indoor pool environment whilst usually offering the option of being at least partially retractable, thus offering the ‘al fresco’ alternative. The lower profile alternatives generally offer the

same kind of versatility but do not offer the facility of walking around inside the enclosure. The principle advantages of the low profile enclosure are price and unobtrusiveness. Tall enclosures are generally up to three to five times more expensive than their less lofty cousins, for an equivalent sized pool. Equally, if the pool owner wishes to retain views over the garden from the kitchen or living room windows then a low profile enclosure is a better bet as they are rarely more than about a metre high at the highest point. “All enclosures will offer similar benefits; namely an extended, or indeed indefinite swimming season, protection of the pool finish and surrounds from ultraviolet radiation and other ravages from the elements and safety and security for all who use the pool and from all those who may inadvertently find their way into the pool (children and animals). Although heating and chemical costs are likely to be higher than in an unenclosed pool, this is simply because the pool is probably going to be used more – costs per hour that the pool is used will indeed come down.”
