Malibu Pools and Spas is a West Australian-based, family-owned pool construction company specialising in building concrete swimming pools and spas for the Perth residential market.
For more than 25 years, it has expanded its experience in the installation of lap, plunge, and freeform pools, water features and fishponds.
Malibu Pools and Spas strives to offer a complete service, from start to finish, with handover and follow-up an integral part of its philosophy.
In the past, above-ground pools were only built to cater for sloping blocks or hillside locations. The trend towards reducing the amount of pool fencing, as well as the use of a concrete pool as a retaining wall, has resulted in the growth of above-ground, infinity-edge pools.
Company owner George Adamos thrives on the complexity of creating the above-ground dream.
Aesthetically, pools without a fence look better and, along with a water-wall, they are more striking than otherwise standard backyard pools.
Every pool built above ground poses challenges with design, construction and overall operation. The key to building these pools is the plumbing design. The positioning of equipment above the pool, above the balance tank, or completely underground are factors that will all affect the way the pool functions.
As seen here, this pool has been designed so the equipment is concealed under the pool surround, and the balance tank is an open trough 300mm in depth. The completed design features Trend Vitreo Mosaic waterline tiles, a 600x600mm Ceramic Wave Tile on the water-wall, a Crestwood Blue painted trough, and plastering in Rainbow Quartz, ‘pool blue’ finish. A concrete surround, with a blue feature wall and grass cover below, gives this backyard pool a minimalistic yet modern ‘wow’ factor.
