Sydney is famous for its opera house and bridge, but the city also has more ocean pools than anywhere else in the world. While some have been threatened by erosion, others are receiving much-needed upgrades; one such iconic swim spot – Bondi Icebergs – recently celebrated its centenary and is currently receiving its much-debated upgrade with the installation of a lazy river that can be programmed for therapeutic strength training as well as resistance walking or assisted walking programs.
The pool will be designed with multi-generational swimmers in mind and provide access for people of all ages and abilities, including those with mobility issues or disability. It will feature retractable roof to protect from sun exposure as well as state-of-the-art heating system to allow year-round swimming.
Bringing an outdoor swimming pool into your own backyard requires professional assistance, to ensure it complies with Australian standards and local council requirements. Furthermore, finding an experienced builder with a proven track record and good reputability should also be sought out before beginning construction work. Be sure to obtain a detailed quote of costs involved prior to initiating work and ensure all aspects of construction are fully understood by both you and your builder.
A reliable pool builder should take the time to understand your needs and goals before designing a pool that’s tailored specifically to them. They should also be available for questions regarding the building process or any applicable warranties – as well as provide references from past clients.
When hiring a pool builder, be sure to confirm their licensing and insurance credentials, ask to see examples of past work they have completed, read reviews/testimonials before hiring any one and compare prices between builders – in addition to contacting your local government department to gather more information about local rules/regulations.
At this critical juncture in climate change, it’s vital to invest in your community by supporting sustainable initiatives like solar power. Solar can lower electricity bills while protecting the environment. Furthermore, switching to energy-efficient appliances and lighting could save money and conserve precious natural resources.
Though it may seem obvious that we should take better care of the planet, not everyone understands how climate change impacts daily lives. That is why the Royal Lifesaving Society NSW is calling on both major parties to pledge support for building new aquatic centres across NSW before the next election – this way our communities can become healthier and safer; investing more can only strengthen our future!
