HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS When Jim Smith (pictured) had Crystal Pools build a pool and spa for him 25 years ago, little did he realise that one day he would need the pool for rehabilitation after knee surgery. But he is having difficulty getting in and out of it. Mr Smith recently contacted Crystal Pools to find a solution. Crystal Pools sales manager Andrew Dodd says the answer to this problem was a stainless-steel handrail at the steps. The handrail enables Mr Smith to enter the pool safely and fits in so well with the pool it's as if it was always there. The handrail now enables me to rehabilitate the knee in the pool twice a day. The pool is solar- heated and is maintained at 29C which is ideal for exercising. The handrail is also used by my 96-year- old father-in-law who, prior to its installation, was unable to use the pool. The grandchildren are also now using it so we are all getting the benefit from it. Having quality fittings means less maintenance and we at Crystal Pools know this after more than 50 years in business. This must be so because we haven't had any problems with the pool and spa. In fact, up until recently, I was using the original leaf scoop that came with the pool. It had constant use because this is such a leafy area. The way we see it, you don't stay in business almost half a century by building anything less than the best and having the best accessories. As master pool designers and builders, our pools stand the test of time. To date, there's over 19,000 across Australia. Some of the different designs are geometric, freeform, lap, or plunge, and we include any shape and any size. A clever pool renovation can do wonders to modernise a pool. Repairing a tired finish or having the pool retiled can breathe new life into it. It may also be an opportunity to benefit from new technology advances in pool cleaning and filtration systems.
