With incredible views and mesmerising design, this stunning pool by Daydream Pools & Spas is absolutely breathtaking.
The owner of this pool approached Daydream Pool and Spas requesting an award-winning design and they were given just that. The featured pool won three gold awards at the State SPASA Awards including Pool of the Year in South Australia, Gold for over $100,000 and Gold for best lap pool.
Just by looking at the pool it is clear that this is a truly exceptional design. Set on the side of a hill, overlooking the city of Adelaide with a view extending to the sea, the design encompasses pure class. The pool is a grand 20m in length with a 24m negative wet edge that drapes over the side.
The design was created for both lap swimming and family enjoyment, with one end 2m in width and the other widening to 4m and the spa set in the middle. The internal spa and negative edge was built at the same height so that when in use for conventional purposes, a button can be pressed on the PC Aqualine that drops the pool 50mm into the balance tank. A 2m seat with two spa jets in the entry step was also included for a luxurious entry point.
The site itself was a challenge as it is set on a hillside; access was difficult and piers had to be installed to prevent the pool from ever sliding down onto the freeway below. Two filtration systems also had to be installed, one for the pool and spa, the other for the balance tank. This was to avoid the gully winds blowing up the hill and throwing water around the site.
Despite these challenges, the result is a stunning pool that the owners use proudly. It also shows the professional service of Daydream Pool and Spas.
