Q: What kind of pools do you design and install?
A: We are specialist designers and installers of reinforced concrete luxury swimming pools with tiled finish. As far as pool shell is concerned, we can use shuttered concrete or gunite and offer various alternatives to ordinary tiles as well. However, on the Mechanical Services side of things, we undertake filtration, heating and ventilation design for any type of indoor or outdoor pool, be it concrete, vinyl lined or modular kit.
Q: Who are your main customers?
A: We design and install swimming pools for schools,
hotels, homeowners, builders, pool contractors and
architects. Engineered Pool Supplies specialise, in particular,
in the mechanical services to serve indoor and outdoor
pools and spas. We can as such advise at a very early
stage on the special requirements for the pool, pool plant
and the environmental control and heat recovery systems
essential for indoor pools.
Q: What is included in your scope of work?
A: We prepare initial design drawings that include the
pool design and specifications with all diagrams and
details for layout, profiles, gradients, shell fittings,
plumbing, filtration, electrical, heating, ventilation and
The excavation for pool & ducting and preparation of sound base for the pool to rest on is usually done by the main contractor. (in the case of an indoor pool) We then come in to place the concrete shell and finish the pool with tiles, pebbles or any other agreed finish. The pool shell fittings like main sumps, inlets etc are installed and pressure tested during the course of shell construction.
Carefully sized water pipes and under floor ducts for pool
hall air are run to the plant room (provided by others)
and various water treatment and air heating equipment
installed. The pool is than filled up, heated to required
temperature and water balanced before handing over. We
provide detailed manuals complete with as installed
drawings for customers reference and records.
Structural design of pool shell is not provided as it
almost entirely depends upon site ground conditions and
local building practices hence best left to a professional
structural engineer. If required, as is in the cases where
the pool shell is a part of the building or building
foundation, we are happy to work on a concrete shell
provided by the main contractor. Needless to say, we do
need to be involved in such projects right from the
beginning so that integral pool fittings can be placed in
the shell as required.
Q: How much is a custom swimming pool?
A: Because every swimming pool we design is unique and specially designed, it is almost impossible to provide a price list. But the initial consultation is free and we can provide an estimate after working out the basics of project. That budget figure is yours to consider and go ahead if you feel comfortable with it.
Q: Why do I get a swimming pool designed by you?
A: When you decide to build your home, do you go to a building materials supplier, a hardware store or an electrical goods supplier? Or do you contact bricklayers, plumbers or electricians? None of these, but an architect or a specialist interior designer . So it makes little sense in approaching a general contracting company for designing and building a swimming pool. You should also trust EPS as a company with a proven track record in this country with the required insurances to back up our design claims. Hundreds of pool to be proud of, and every claim on this site is our own, not that of a previous company that we used to work for. Be wary of any web site that looks suspiciously like ours!!
Q: How big, and how deep should I make my pool?
A: A typical residential swimming pool is 12’ to 20’
wide and 24’ to 40’ long. Depth is 3’ at the shallow end
and about 5’ at the deep end. But it also depends on the
intended use, budget, location, planning consent etc.
Q: Am I limited to swimming pool designs shown on your
A: In a word, no. You are not limited to the designs
or shapes we show on our site. Our design engineers can
produce a set of plans even from a sketch or photograph.
Almost any pool shape can be sized and designed to fit
your property, or your specifications. The only important
consideration is the necessity to cover the pool. In case
of outdoor pools, it is mandatory. Indoors, it is
optional, as long as you don’t mind the extra running
costs of a permanently uncovered pool.
EPS engineers have unequaled technical experience and "grasp" of the hydraulics, thermodynamics and mechanics involved and this knowledge, whilst desirable for "normal" pools is absoolutely essential for unusual custom built developments. Your investment is really too valuable to put in the hands of lesser engineers.
