Luxurious Leisure Pools: Lagoon Pools


Julie and Warren Hastings supply the range from one of the world’s largest manufacturers of composite fibreglass swimming pools – Leisure Pools – to homes in Canterbury and wider South Island.

 

Lagoon Pools

 

Leisure Pools incorporate patented technology to provide additional strength and durability, using corrosive resistant, 100 percent vinyl ester resin, ensuring the pool is kept safe, secure and free of damage; and a lifetime structural and osmosis warranty is provided for peace of mind.

From large pools 12m in length to sizes perfect for smaller sections, Julie and Warren of Lagoon Pools can assist with every stage of the planning and installation. Council consents generally take at least 20 working days to secure, and planning and landscaping can take time, so it makes sense to get the process started as soon as possible.

While the weather is still warm, it’s an ideal time to think about getting a pool installed, says Julie. “We are offering a special deal for people who sign up for an installation before the end of July. Our busiest time is from September onwards as people usually want their pool in by Christmas, so autumn and winter installs allow for a no-rush, stress free process and ample time to finish your landscaping.”

From Elite hideaway rollers, automatic cover systems, pool surrounds and fencing, to fountains, strip lighting and spa jets – as well as swim trainers and robot pool cleaners – the business offers the full package. “We never say no to anything and spend time with every customer to work out exactly what they want.”

Swim Fit

Swim Fit


Splish splash, a swimming pool is like a large bathtub. A little cooler than the home bath, the expansive space allows for exercise time, play time and leisure time. The beauty and value of swimming have once again been brought forward in the headlines with Michael Phelps and his record winning performance at the last Olympic Games.

 

Swim Fit

 

The health benefits of swimming are well-known. Swimming is a non-weight-bearing exercise regime that utilises most of the muscles, making it effective for both cardio and muscular endurance.  Gliding through the water with the various swimming stroke options, including the back stroke, butterfly, breast stroke and the fan favourite freestyle, offers a non-resistant way of enhancing and maintaining your physical health.

 

Aqua aerobics is a popular exercise class which is offered at your local pool and can coincide with swimming laps. If staying above water is not a simple task, ask at the service centre desk or a pool lifeguard for a floatation board which can be used to help maintain your above water efforts.

 

Physical concerns with swimming are minimal as this exercise keeps the body buoyant and is easy on the muscles. The main health concerns factor around the water quality at the pool facility or in a natural environment of a river, lake or an ocean area. The concerns stem from bacteria, pathogens or excrement from animal or human waste.

 

These types of external concerns can develop side effects in a person ranging from a mild case of itchy skin to more severe side effects such as bacterial infections.
Swimming, when done either as recreation or on a more serious level as an exercise option, can provide fun, enjoyment and health benefits.
