From humble beginnings in Hastings, Mayfair Pools have been crafting custom made swimming pools across the South Pacific for nearly 50 years. Most clients want a really special swimming pool, and every so often, an opportunity arises to build a swimming pool in a truly unique landscape, like this pool in Mangonui.
This Northland swimming pool is quite distinctive because the whole design is one-of-a-kind and custom built to suit the owners, with far-reaching views of Doubtless Bay making a spectacular backdrop for this Mayfair Pools project.
The bespoke fibreglass pool with a 7m-long infinity edge also features a children’s pool. At one with the sea beyond – that’s what the owners of this new poolscape wanted. Their pool needed to blend seamlessly with the scenery and look as though it was part of the wider landscape.
The setting is magical, with the pool set far back from the road to ensure privacy. Mayfair Pools was able to provide a design that is 21m long and 8m wide on the curved areas. It accommodates a massive water capacity of 180,000 litres and features two saltwater chlorinators to produce a crystal clear pool.
The poolscape is enhanced by salt and pepper granite coping stones and pavers, which were chosen to give a sense of the pool being surrounded by sand. “The children’s pool flows into the main pool, which is 1.8 to 2.1m deep – the depth really brings out the colour of the Blue Steel gel coat. It also means the pool can be used for diving,” says the chief craftsman Mike Lodge.
Also provided is a spa pool, and a dual-purpose hot water heat pump to heat to separate temperatures and extend the swimming season. Pool cleaning is easy, thanks to an automatic robotic cleaner that runs on a three-hour cycle.
Mayfair Pools specialises in building custom made fibreglass swimming pools for both the residential and commercial markets with agents throughout New Zealand. To find out more, download a swimming pool design book today.
