When Sussi and Paul moved 170 miles from Leicester to the south coast in early 2023, they had one dream, and that was to have a swimming pool in the back garden of their new home. Primed to realise their vision was Hayling Island-based Simplex Pools. With Certikin as their fairy godmother, they waved their magic wand and abracadabra, a pool was born.

Sussi and Paul take up the story: “When exploring options for the pool we, of course, had our own ideas but we needed expert guidance to get the best possible outcome. We contacted two pool installers and whilst Simplex’s quote came in slightly more than the rival company, we instantly knew we were talking from the same hymn sheet. Throughout the process, Simplex were helpful, friendly, and keen to listen. Not having owned a pool before, they have offered excellent ongoing training until we feel confident to take over the maintenance ourselves. The process and outcome have surpassed our expectations, and we cannot recommend Simplex highly enough.”

The couple were keen for the pool to meet the needs of their visiting grandchildren, and be a source of entertainment, but they didn’t want it to dominate the garden. Taking just seven weeks from start to finish, Simplex constructed an 8m x 4m concrete pool with a constant 1.3m depth and concrete corner steps.

The Simplex in-house team on-site lined the pool using Certikin’s Vanity Touch material, finished off with a Alkorplan Ceramics grey tile band on the walls of the pool and the treads of the steps. The surround was completed with black granite coping stones and grey porcelain tiles, again from Certikin, which further enhanced the pool liner, and showed it off to its best advantage.

A Certikin white LED underwater flood light and skimmer were duly installed along with a Certikin 500micron solar cover and premium manual roller, the environmentally friendly Calorex Invertor air source heat pump, Vision Top Mount filter and Aquaspeed filtration pump.

The pool was filled in time for the Easter holidays and hey presto, dream fulfilled!
