Concrete Pools

Concrete pools by Blue Water Pools are for the discerning who want to create their own resort at home, made from durable materials and superior finishes like quartz coloured marble with tiles and surrounds to match, these pools are highly sought after by those who appreciate individuality and style.

We work with Architects, Building Designers and Landscape professionals to create the pool that best fits a client's needs. The materials used are specified and checked by a qualified engineer before submission for Building consents from Council.

As experienced Pool Builders we manage the consent process for the pool to expedite the consent and to commence building to meet an agreed timetable. Often the excavation and shell construction are completed and then left while other building works are completed, finally we will apply the tiles to the waterline and the bull nose coping and then surface the pool in the finish of choice.

Today there are a number of finishes available including Marble Plaster in white, Quartzon in a range of colours including White, Blues, Grey, Green, Black and many with sparkle finishes. Pebblecrete and Hydrazzo finishes offer a wide range of coloured options and superior finishes.

A Fibreglass finish is an excellent option, created from layers of chopped strand fibreglass and finished with layers of coloured Gelcoat. this surface creates a smooth hard wearing surface, tiles are applied on top of the fibreglass. Fibreglass shells inside a concrete structure are often used for pools in Apartment complexes. the fibreglass shell creates a watertight shell and prevents any chance of leakage to floors or cars below. Bluewater Pools were appointed to create the pools using a fibreglass shell insert in the Parc Apartments, Scene Apartments and Precinct Apartments in downtown Auckland.

Choosing the Quartzon colour that is perfect for you

Quartzon colour collections offer so many possibilities to create a pool that is just perfect for you and your environment. However, before you choose a colour for your pool, we encourage you to consider the area surrounding it.Pools that are located under an open sky can take full advantage of light reflections, to create a richer, 'bluer' tint to the pool water. While pools that are surrounded with tall trees and shrubs, produce darker shades due to shadows that are cast. Tile bands and the depth of the pool also influence the final colour of your pool.

Colour that lasts

Unlike many other pool surfaces that fade after a short time (because the colour is dyed on), the rich colours in Quartzon are achieved through a technologically advanced colourfast process of ceramic firing. Specialised, fade resistant, iron oxide pigments used to colour the stone and the cement* ensure your Quartzon surface retains its brilliant colour for many years to come. Santorini and Cosimo do not contain pigment within the cement. 

Colour range

The Quartzon collection of nine designer colours gives you the flexibility to choose the look that is just right for you - whether you are renovating an old pool or about to build a new one. Choose from light, crisp blues, beach lagoon tones or darker blues and aqua green depending on your style and budget.

Colours to suit every budget

Lighter Quartzon colours such as Quartzon White Beach and Quartzon Cosimo are around the same price as good quality pebblecrete pools.As the Quartzon colours get darker, more pigments and ceramically coloured stone are required, thereby increasing the investment. The richer, darker colours such as Quartzon Pacific Star and Quartzon Royal Blue are at the higher end of the scale, yet still remain more cost effective than a fully tiled pool.
