Swimming Pool Restoration – Steel Tank to Swimming Pool

Swimming pool refurbishment.

A pool transformed

It’s amazing what can be achieved with a little vision and ingenuity. A recent project presented us with an opportunity to transform a redundant, neglected pool into a fabulous ‘new’ pool that will be used and enjoyed for years to come. It just goes to show anyone who owns a run-down pool that with a little work they could soon be the owner of a spectacular new facility to be enjoyed and admired by family and friends…and at a fraction of the price of a new pool.

The owners of this pool were considering installing a completely new swimming pool but asked us to assess the possibility of restoring the existing pool. You can see in the ‘before’ pictures that the pool was in a very poor state and it didn’t look promising. However, we surveyed the existing pool and concluded that, providing the actual pool structure was intact and in a sound condition, we would be able to transform their old pool into a fabulous new pool.

Panache Pools Launch Two New Websites


Due to the popularity of our wooden pools and exercise pools we have launched two new websites dedicated to each of these swimming pool options. The site dedicated to wooden pools can be found at www.WoodenSwimmingPools.co.uk and the site dedicated to exercise pools is at www.EndlessExercisePool.co.uk.

Although the sites are ‘live’, they are in constant development and we will be adding new content on a regular basis.

When considering a swimming pool for your home or garden, more people are taking the wooden pool option; and it’s easy to see why. Wooden pools are quick and easy to install, are available with self build packages and bespoke options, can be installed above ground, part submerged or fully in-ground, offer great value for money and they look fantastic. To see all our range of wooden pools simply visit the site here and have a good look around. We’re confident we have the pool for you. Continue reading

Exercise Pools for Your Home or Garden


Swim at home

If you love the idea of being able to take a daily swim as part of your exercise regime, a home exercise pool could provide you with a perfect solution. Exercise pools are compact, easy to install, have low running costs and can provide you and your family with hours of healthy, fun exercise.

You don’t need a large area to be able to accommodate an exercise pool as they are usually small pools with a counter current unit fitted to generate a current for you to swim against. Exercise pools with a counter current unit essentially enable you to swim in the same place. I’ve seen them described or likened to an aquatic treadmill. They can be installed indoors or outdoors and there are several exercise pool packages on the market – see here.

If you don’t want an exercise pool package you can opt for a bespoke exercise pool and have a pool build to meet your exact requirements – see bespoke options here. Whatever pool you choose you also have a choice of counter current units. These can be generally divided into two categories – ‘over the wall’ or wall hung or ‘through the wall’ units.
