This 8m x 4m Valentina with a zero edge is the only one of its kind in Western Australia. After looking at many photos online, the owner decided this was the exact style of pool he wanted so approached Aqua Technics regarding the build. While it was a challenge, Aqua Technics was up to the task and went about designing custom equipment that would be needed to create the zero edge effect. The installation of the pool needed to be dead-on laser level in order for the zero edge to work correctly. There was no margin for any tolerances. 80mm suction and plumbing was used and the equipment includes a heater, UV sanitisation system and fresh water system.
TThe pool is fully automated from the owner’s phone. The zero edge can be turned off by simply pressing a button that lowers the water level. Laminar jets have been added for a nice effect and the owner also added lights that change the colour of the water stream. The jet and pool lights are fully synchronised so they are always the same colour no matter what the cycle. Dark granite headers are in stark contrast to the teak wooden decking and the large palms create a tropical feel. The pool colour is Autumn Grey from the Crystalite ColourGuard range.
As a fitting reward for the effort that went into the design and installation, this pool was awarded a Silver medal for Residential Fibreglass Pools – Over $60,000 at the recent SPASA WA Awards of Excellence.
