Barrier Reef Pools won all three awards for its fibreglass lap pools in the annual Swimming Pool and Spa Association Awards of Excellence. Lap Pool entries from Secret Harbour, Atwell and East Fremantle took out the gold, silver and bronze awards, with a popular 12m-long fibreglass lap pool.
The gold award went to the Secret Harbour Lap Pool. The pool was located as a focal point for outdoor entertainment that is positioned down a boundary wall alongside the alfresco area at the Secret Harbour home.
Bluestone paving is laid around the edges of the pool and complements the gelcoat interior in Ocean Shimmer.
A constant depth of 1.35m suited the owners’ needs and a water feature on the far side of the pool is lit with LED lights.
A specially engineered drop footing was required to stabilise the ground around the house pillars and a recessed step-in allows uninterrupted lap swims.
Semi-frameless glass fencing separates the pool from the alfresco area and Astralpool filter and pump equipment ensures water quality. The cost of the gold-winning pool was $28,000.
