How much does an indoor pool package cost and what does it include?

Prices for a residential turnkey package start from £124,950 inc VAT and go up from there depending on the size and specification of the project.

The cost of a commercial indoor pool depends on the size and facilities you want to offer.  However as a guide, if you were to measure the overall footprint of the building, the total building cost can range from £2,400 + VAT/sq.m for a small 125sq.m hydrotherapy pool down to £1,850 + VAT/sq.m for a 1,000sq.m leisure centre.  The type of facilities in the building and the number of internal rooms greatly influences the total build cost.  We have some 'standard' designs with prices against them to give you an idea of what to budget. Please contact us for a copy.

The price of a Pinelog indoor pool and building is fully inclusive of foundations, pool building, swimming pool and equipment, dehumidification, lighting, heating and flooring.  It also includes all the necessary professional services, ie, architects and engineers.  Pinelog take complete responsibility for the installation, from the initial site survey through to the final commissioning on completion.

Can a residential Pinelog swimming pool building have the same external appearance as the house and can it be attached?

Every Pinelog project is bespoke designed and built to our customer’s requirements with external finishes in stone, brick, render or timber.  These can be either freestanding or linked onto existing dwellings. 

Can a residential pool building be any size?

You will see that the indoor pool collection includes a wide range of attractive buildings with different finishes and sizes.  However, as buildings are manufactured in our factory in Derbyshire, we have the flexibility to build a variety of styles and sizes.  Additional doors, roof glazing, styles of windows, extensions for saunas, spas etc are all catered for and designed into the building in our architects' department.  This is a service which our customers expect and one we are pleased to be able to provide.

What are the average running costs of a residential indoor swimming pool?

SPATA estimate the daily energy and chemical cost of running an indoor residential pool is approximately £7.50 although this can alter significantly depending on the size and style of swimming pool, the season, the water temperature and the heat source.

Every Pinelog swimming pool is constructed with an insulated pool chamber, floor slab and is fenestrated using double glazed units that are insulated with Argon.

It is always important to choose the right energy source to heat your pool and Pinelog will advise on this as well as the other available options for conserving energy in your building.

Are the pools easy to maintain?

Modern pool equipment is user friendly and our private clients tell us that on average they spend about half an hour to an hour each week cleaning the pool, checking the chemical levels and the filtration system.

Does a residential indoor swimming pool building always need Planning Permission?

In general the answer is ‘no’ as long as the building is freestanding. As from 1st October 2008 outbuildings have been considered to be Permitted Development and not need planning permission, subject to certain limits and conditions. For further information please follow this link.

We can usually determine whether Permitted Development will apply or whether a planning application is required when we undertake the initial design consultation. We can take care of the application on your behalf if planning permission is necessary.

Do Pinelog carry out installations in my area?

We install indoor swimming pools throughout the UK.

What size of Commercial pool will I need?

This will depend on the number of people you wish to cater for and the type of use they will be putting it to (lane swimming or wallowing). As a general rule in a multi-purpose pool, at least 3sq. m of water area should be allowed per person. Offering alternative facilities such as a gymnasium or beauty suite can help spread customer loadings. There are also national safety guidelines on the maximum number of people allowed in the pool at one time.

How sustainable are the pool buildings?

All Pinelog buildings are manufactured from high quality timber that is grown from sustainable sources.

Our buildings are designed and constructed so that unwanted air leakage is very low. This is evidenced in many site specific building pressure tests where the measured levels were found to be over 60% better than the requirements of Building Regulations. Every building is designed to be efficient of its kind and can be specified with exceptionally high levels of insulation.

Pinelog is experienced in delivering projects that incorporate renewable technologies and our representatives would welcome the opportunity of discussing the most appropriate options with you.

How are the swimming pool chambers constructed?

We build concrete pool chambers as we consider this to be the foremost method of construction. A Pinelog swimming pool is built with twin layers of masonry that contain separate layers of reinforced concrete and insulation. This robust construction method is superior to the single layer masonry design that is adopted by many other pool companies.
