It doesn't matter if you are a homeowner thinking about having a pool or the first time, an architect who has designed pools in past, a builder who has built a few properties with pools before or indeed a pool installer who just wants to do it quicker and better this time round, we have something for everyone. Our clients usually are:

HOMEOWNERS

What is Self Build Swimming Pools?

SBSP is a service to design your swimming pool in a way that you can easily build it yourself, we are not a swimming pool supermarket where you can look at the available options, see what's available for delivery tomorrow, click to buy it and swim in the coming weekend, since making you believe that would be a misrepresentation. We are pool designers who know all there is to know about building pools, an can guide you to avoid the pitfalls and get the best possible return on your investment on the swimming pool.

Building a swimming pool can be a complex and expensive task, and that's where the services of SBSP come in handy. Our experts work with you right from the beginning when you are thinking about it, help you decide what kind and what size of pool to go for, prepare a list of all that you would need if you want to do it all yourself, supply the materials to you and hold your hand through the build to enable you to complete your pool on time and in budget.

Why use the services of SBSP?

DIY swimming pool manufacturers, distributors & sellers can be biased towards what they stock and sell, but because we are independent consultants who have no stock to offload, we have no upside in front loading your project scope and can offer an unbiased opinion. We can help you manage the various stages of the build: that means digging the hole, getting rid of the earth and all the other jobs right up until the pool is ready. There are lots of decisions to be made when you are building a swimming pool and we will make you aware of your choices.


How does it work?

If you are reading this, we know that you understand the value of money as well as the importance of having a well designed and installed swimming pool for the enjoyment and safety of your family. We just want you to know that we understand that as well; and we start the process by getting to know what you want and then going about how to achieve that.

Below are some of the pools built by our clients...

 
 

SELF BUILD SWIMMING POOL PRICES

Our DIY pool packages are the best specified in the market and come complete with all pipe, fittings, equipment and valves to enable you to install the pool without re-ordering materials.

The kits are designed to allow you to put the plant room anywhere within 5 meters of the pool edge and are split into three parts that can be bought separately, so you don’t need to shell out all the cost upfront. To get the total price, choose the pool size then add the first fix (plumbing), second fix (completion) & heating kit prices all together to get the final figure.


Pool filtration first fix (plumbing kit) prices

The first fix kit includes the required number of skimmers, drains, lights and automatic top-up for the size of your pool complete with pipe + fittings and needs to be purchased before you start construction of your pool.

SMALL POOL up-to 15 square meters (example 6m X 2.5m)  : £2,995 inc. VAT

MEDIUM POOL up-to 24 square meters (example 8m X 3m)  : £3,495 inc. VAT

The completion kit includes the pool pump, sand filter, media, valves and the pool light transformer complete with control panel and needs to be purchased after you have finished your pool shell but before you install your pool finish.

Indoor pool H&V (heating & ventilation) kit prices


Indoor pools not only need the pool water to be heated but also the pool hall air to be heated and dehumidified to stop condensation on pool room internal surfaces, especially glass windows, doors and skylights. Our kit does all of it without you needing to put radiators in the pool hall, although most clients like to have underfloor heating just for the nice feeling barefoot and to keep the pool surround dry.

The indoor pool H&V kit includes a stainless steel heat exchanger for the pool water and a heat recovery dehumidifier that is supplied with  ducting and grilles to blow warm dry air on to the glass surfaces. A fresh air module is also offered as an option.

SMALL POOL up-to 15 square meters (example 6m X 2.5m)  : £6,995 inc. VAT

MEDIUM POOL up-to 24 square meters (example 8m X 3m)  : £9,995 inc. VAT

LARGE POOL up-to 40 square meters (example 10m X 4m)  : £14,995 inc. VAT

EXTRA LARGE POOL up-to 60 square meters (example 12m X 5m)  : £19,995 inc. VAT

OPTIONAL HEAT RECOVERY VENTILATOR (for fresh air circulation) : £2,995 inc.VAT

The above prices are supply only, but if you are within a 100 miles of Central London, we can offer the installation of all our kits at a nominal charge, if you feel the need for it. And if you are also not sure about whether to build the pool yourself or to use a full service installer, visit www.aqua-spazio.com to know about our pool construction partners.

DIY SWIMMING POOL SHELLS

One thing to note is that when we calculate the pricing for construction projects, we have to consider building materials, plant hire and labour costs. Now while it is difficult to give a firm price without looking at actual site conditions, the guide prices for good quality concrete pool shells are as below:


LINER POOL SHELLS (prices for finished shell only - choose from equipment packages above to get complete price) : 


£300 materials + £300 labour = £600 per sqm of pool area in plan.


Small Pool 6m X 2.5m = 15 sqm  X £600 per sqm = £9,000

Medium Pool 8m X 3m = 24 sqm  X £600 per sqm = £14,400

Large Pool 10m X 4m = 40 sqm  X £600 per sqm = £24,000

Extra Large Pool 12m X 5m = 60 sqm  X £600 per sqm = £36,000

The prices above INCLUDE forming the pool base in reinforced concrete, forming pool walls using solid concrete blocks, insulation to the pool floor & walls and standard plain liner.

The prices above EXCLUDE excavation & taking soil away.

TILED POOL SHELLS (prices for finished shell only - choose from equipment packages above to get complete price) : 


£350 materials + £400 labour = £750 per sqm of pool area in plan


Small Pool 6m X 2.5m = 15 sqm  X £750 per sqm = £11,250

Medium Pool 8m X 3m = 24 sqm  X £750 per sqm = £18,000

Large Pool 10m X 4m = 40 sqm  X £750 per sqm = £30,000

Extra Large Pool 12m X 5m = 60 sqm  X £750 per sqm = £45,000

The prices above INCLUDE forming the pool base in reinforced concrete, forming pool walls using insulated formwork, insulation to the pool floor, chlorine resistant waterproofing and standard blue mosaic tiling.


The prices above EXCLUDE excavation & taking soil away.

DIY SWIMMING POOL INSTALLATION PROCESS


After initial client consultation, the first stage of the process is concept design and sketches. Very useful for getting a first hand feel of what can be achieved and knowing what is involved, this includes site surveys, initial design discussions, site layouts, hand sketches, simple renderings and rough cost estimations. 


Concept Design & Sketches are priced from £195 for outdoor pools and £295 for indoor pools, but if you buy the equipment package from us, these are offered free of cost.

Once the concept is frozen, the next step is to make general arrangement plans & sections, technical drawings and finishes schedules. All this information is fed through the 3-D software to make realistic renders and illustrations, and the final package is ready to go out for execution.


Drawings & Illustrations are priced from £495 for outdoor pools and £995 for indoor pools, but again if you buy the equipment package from us, these are offered free of cost.

On commencement of works at site, it is important to monitor the progress and check for quality control. For complex projects, specialist contractors need on-site guidance and so this stage involves project kick-off, site visits, quantity surveys, ongoing project support and sign off on completion.

Supervision & Commissioning are priced individually for each project but in general will cost you anywhere between £1,995 and £4,995 for a 2 months to 6 months project, although most of our clients who have some experience in DIY don’t need this service. And if you have some DIY building experience we also sell Part L compliant insulated pool wall kits and waterproofing kits, see our other website www.insulatedswimmingpools.co.uk to know more about that.

Remember, the first consultation is free of cost, no obligation, so if anything is not clear or you are unsure of how big your pool would be, just send an email to selfbuildpools@gmail.com or fill up the form, it only takes 30 seconds.
