General Questions

For a standard excavation we require a minimum of 2m of width and 2m of height. We are able to pass through smaller gaps down to 900mm, but any spaces narrower than this makes excavating a pool very difficult.

A pools running cost can vary from site to site, and electricity prices are constantly changing, but the average Pool Crafters pool without heating can be between $100-$200 per month depending on the variables of each site.

This is dependant on how often you wish to use your pool and whether it is indoor or outdoor. Most people aim to extend the swimming season and the best way to achieve this with the lowest running cost is solar heating.

There are many different ways to sanitise your swimming pools water. At Pool Crafters we have been using magnesium for several years as it has proven to be an effective and low cost way in which to sanitise your swimming pool.
Magnesium works in the same manner as a salt-water pool. However, instead of producing sodium chloride from the chlorinator it makes magnesium chloride, which operates at almost half the total dissolved solids level (TDS - the amount of particles in the water) of a traditional salt pool making it much easier on both your eyes and skin.

The short answer is YES. You will be unable to complete the construction of your swimming pool without the council certifying your safety fence prior to filling.
