Concrete Swimming Pools in Adelaide

Thousands of Pools, Each one Unique

Alpha Pools have built literally thousands of concrete pools over more than two decades. In fact, we're proud to have built multiple pools for customers each time they have moved home.


Why Concrete?

Well, if fiberglass pools were so great you'd see them in hotels, public installations and featured in magazines. All said and done a fiberglass pool looks like a poor imitation of the real thing.

For example, an Alpha Concrete Pool:

  • can be built to any shape, size & depth
  • builds-in a beautiful surround (e.g. brick pavers, sandstone, even rocks) that provides superb continuity with your surrounding paving - for that professional look
  • is finished internally in a variety of colours and textures
  • can easily be customised to include features such as spas, underwater ledges and waterfalls


"Not all concrete pools are created equal"

Like any other concrete structure, building a highly durable pool requires:

  • the highest grades of purpose made concrete
  • no compromises in the type and quantity of steel reinforcement utilised
  • careful placement of the above, i.e. "hand- picked" tradesmen
  • Close supervision of all of the above

 

Remember, your pool should last longer than the typical lifespan of many pool companies. Short-cuts are not always obvious. Pool buyers are well advised to consider a builder's professionalism when assessing a proposal.


The Pool of a Lifetime

A pool built by Alpha Pools using One-Steel reinforcing and Boral concrete, constructed to meet and exceed the Australian Standard (AS2783) will last a lifetime. It actually gets stronger as it ages.
