Summer Roundup

Apollo Landing

Earlier in July we made a tricky delivery of an Apollo to Chigwell, Essex, negotiating a rather large oak tree growing in the middle of our customer’s narrow driveway.

Both crane and hiab lorry managed to squeeze through though, and the one-piece pool was then craned over the customer’s house past building work and their existing cement pool before coming in to land in the garden.

We came back a week later to complete the installation, when the pool was lifted into position by the customer himself by telehander. After some levelling work and insulation the Apollo was ready to be back filled and plumbed in.

Enclosure Delivery

A Sundance customer in Tring, Hertfordshire had a self-build pool installed above-ground in his garden earlier this year, surrounded by wooden decking. Keen to make the most of his investment and to use the pool as much as possible, he wisely ordered an enclosure – which we delivered in July.

Our DIY-savvy customer completed the final fit himself and it looks superb. Here’s why you might want to consider a pool enclosure for your outdoor pool.

Trailer Upgrade

We’ve recently had our largest flat bed trailer re-decked, and decided that the best material for the job had to be durable fibreglass. Thanks to our partners – boat builders CML in Southampton – for a great job as ever. CML also make our biggest in-ground pool, the Sunquest, as well as our smallest pool, the custom-size Jetswim.

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane?

Our crane popped up on Essex air traffic control’s radar when delivering a Kalipso one-piece pool to a customer in Rochford.

Our crane wasn’t quite high enough to interfere with local aircraft, but tall enough to get noticed. Like Ed (on the left!)

Pico Plant Room Fitting

We’ve just completed the plant room for a Pico customer, whose one-piece pool we installed earlier in the year, into an existing pool house.

The tiling is now finished and the Pico (our smallest model, ideal for use with a counter-current) is up and running.

Sundance on the Move

News of our impending office move to Aylesbury coming soon.
