Buying a pool… a refreshing idea!

For years, millions of families throughout Canada have made the decision to invest in an in-ground pool.  A pool in your backyard creates a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere to be shared with family and friends during those hot summer days and warm, humid evenings.  What better place to escape your everyday stressful schedules, the deadlines or the demands of the job, than in the comforts of your own home.

Not only does having a swimming pool increase your ability to lead a healthy, active lifestyle, but it will also add value to your home.  Investing in a swimming pool is investing in quality time with your family and friends for many years to come.

Planning for your pool

Pools add lasting beauty and value to your home and, unlike a vacation, they can be enjoyed for many years to come.  Thanks to continuing improvements in design and construction, pools are now within the reach of almost every family budget.

For financing options, ask one of our knowledgeable staff or feel free to consult with your local bank.  Either way, there is a financing package that will help make your dreams a reality.  Our pools are available in an extensive variety of sizes and shapes to effectively fit your backyard, while a large selection of options put the finishing personal touches on your backyard oasis.

A swimming pool is a way of life… make it yours.

A pool is a vacation place that’s exclusively yours…whenever you want to swim, relax, or gather with friends and family.  Start planning your backyard resort today.  Backyard Pleasures’ website is a great way to start but make sure you come to our location to speak with our staff to see how simple it is to begin.

Creating your Backyard Retreat

The construction phase is dramatic and can be a little unnerving, but don’t worry, we have years of experience in building pools.  What is a construction site on the first day, will become a proud addition to your home in a very short period of time.

After the pool area has been marked out, heavy excavation equipment is brought in to dig the hole and sculpture the shape.   The heavy-duty galvanized steel walls are set up and reinforced by a heavy-duty “A” frame support system held in place by a poured concrete base.  At this stage, the circulation plumbing is completed and the walls are back-filled to provide firm support.

In the mean time, the pool bottom is smoothed and, in most cases, a hard finish of sand and concrete is applied to create a sold abrasion-free surface for the vinyl liner.  It’s now time for the finishing touches.  The rugged, attractive vinyl liner, that has been computer designed and manufactured to exacting tolerances, is laid into place.  Now it’s beginning to look like a pool.

All that remains is to finish the deck and create all of those special landscaping touches you’ve dreamed up.  The final phase is to enjoy your in-ground pool.  Coming home after work will now be another day in paradise.  So call or visit us today to start making your dreams come true.

We can offer you several options to further enhance the enjoyment of your new in-ground swimming pool.  These high quality options can help your reduce maintenance, improve the performance or prolong your swimming season.

Keep It Clean:

The pump and filter are the heart and lungs of your swimming pool.  We have a number of filtration types available depending on your municipal requirement, including sand filters and cartridge filters.

Heat It Up:

Extend the swimming pool season and control your pool environment at all times with a quality pool heater.  Gas heaters and heat pumps are the most favoured products but your choice may depend on what utilities are available to you.

Safety Comes First:

Safety covers keep your pool clean and safe during the off-season by guarding against accidental intrusion by children, pets and other animals.  Our safety covers are known for strength, durability and ease of installation.

Light It Up:

Today’s energy efficient, underwater pool lighting has a breathtaking effect as the water’s motion creates ever-changing patterns of colour and light on the pool surface and the surrounding landscapes.  Perimeter or in-pool lighting adds beautiful definition to your pool.  Lighting is one of the most appealing enhancements to any pool scene.

We can provide it all!

Building your dream pool is only the first step in your backyard adventure.  After-service is the most important part of the project and we can provide all of the services that you need: water testing, chemicals, accessories, toys, games and most all… a professional and knowledgeable staff that will help keep your investment in the best possible condition.
