Swimming pools are one of the most sought-after home additions in South Africa, as it turns our warm African climate into an excuse for a wonderful day outside, or for a very enjoyable workout for athletes and the health conscious. Adding a swimming pool to your property can greatly increase the residents’ day-to-day living quality and also serves as an ideal exercise platform for many health problems and physical rehabilitation programs.
Swimming Pool Construction
24 Hour Group specializes in Gunite pools, the tried and tested traditional concrete approach to swimming pools, which offers extensive design flexibility and a robust swimming pool with a long life span.
In short, the swimming pool is excavated by hand with steel rods bent on-site to secure its shape. After various preparatory steps the Gunite is applied, which refers to the high-pressure spraying of concrete. The Gunite is then smoothed over to remove imperfections, and with the frame and shape complete, the basis of the swimming pool is left to cure for a few days.
During the curing period, any paving and mosaics are installed. Marbelite is applied last and a day or so after that, the pool is filled up by water and ready for use.
Swimming Pool Renovation
If your swimming pool didn’t turn out exactly the way you wanted it, you might be glad to hear that 24 Hour Group can renovate it.
Swimming pool renovation refers to a variety of changes that can be done to a pool after construction, such as:
- Identifying and applying the ideal surface solution for your pool.
- identifying and correcting design and structural faults.
- Changing the shape and size of the swimming pool.
24 Hour Group can fix whatever went wrong during the initial construction, or take your swimming to that next level.
