Due to land size, we're restricted to a pool about 5m x 3m and think the Harmony pool from Leisure Pools fits the bill nicely. Here's a pic:
And here it shows what it looks like without water. I like the safety step along the side (great for the kids and short people like me ;))
That nifty little water feature actually stores the pump and everything inside it. Not compulsory to have but adds quite a nice touch I think.
These are fibreglass inground pools and the best bit is they offer a DIY service as well, complete with a template to dig the hole, engineering plans to submit to council, detailed instructions, telephone assistance and the same warrantee the pool would have if installed by pool company! Pretty good I reckon.
Also plan on having one of these glass style pool fences:
The price tag surrounding pools is quite frightening and I've heard the $50,000 figure used more than once from friends!!!! That is so not in our price range so B reckons if we DIY we'll save a bucket load.
Just waiting on quotes now. Eyeing off their finance offer too!!
ETA: Had a chat with the consultant and if they do the entire lot i.e. dig hole, lodge plans, install pool etc it will cost around $25,000. To do it all ourselves, it will cost around $12,000! Certainly do-able. Not right now but in the foreseeable future!
