Fibreglass Pools in Cape Town
Our Cape Town fibreglass pools are perfect for your Cape Town home.
Cape Town is one of the best cities to live in. In summer months it is warm, sunny and dry in Cape Town. The average temperature is around 28 degrees Celsius making it prime weather to swim in your swimming pool. Beaches around this season are quite busy due to the number of international tourists as well as South Africans from all over the country who flock to Cape town during this time.
How Fibreglass Pools Affect Your Property
The significant social culture of Cape Town leads many homeowners towards property improvements which facilitate hosting guests. From patio designs, to pool installations, renovations in Cape Town homes are often people focused. Think braai on the deck, relaxing with friends and family then going for a dip in a pool to cool off. Having a pool in a home not only benefits its inhabitants with its recreational benefit, but also contributes to increasing property value. Having a pool is a great selling point, aesthetic value as well as return on investment by potentially increasing the price you can sell your home for.
With the various housing styles in Cape Town, ranging from large plots in the Southern Suburbs and compact options in the City Bowl, there is opportunity for fibreglass pools to complement the property. Smaller properties will lean towards splash pools whilst larger plots are able to accommodate larger, more social pool types. See our pool shapes to find a pool that complements your property.
Cape Town Water Restrictions
Although Cape Town has recently emerged from a water crisis, the government has, as of mid 2019, given the go ahead for homeowners to start filling their pools. The efficient practices developed during the water shortage are still being employed by Capetonians who are far more water wise than ever before. They have become accustomed to saving water whilst keeping their pools in good condition. Equipment such as pool covers, backwash recovery tanks and rainwater harvesting tanks have been making significant differences with water usage for pool owners. Many people have started using borehole water as well, which is a great way of accessing pure, natural water. The initial costs of accessing the water are quickly paid off from the benefits gained. Borehole water can be used for a variety of things, though if using it for a pool top up or fill then the metals in the water would need to be treated with chemicals and clarifier to make the water safe to swim in.
