John Clark Pools & Renovations

The awards keep rolling in for John Clark Pools & Renovations and it’s no surprise why – they continue to excel and construct the highest quality pools and spas in Brisbane, and the featured pool is no exception.

The homeowners wanted a lap pool to accommodate their child’s swimming ambitions, providing a practical design to enable training at home. In addition, a design was sought which also incorporated a relaxation feature for the parents to enjoy leisure time whilst the children enjoyed the pool. Because of this, a lap pool with a spillover spa was designed to meet the clients’ needs. This ensured practicality, along with an aesthetically pleasing leisure area.

The long narrow design also addressed the pressing issue of limited space. The 12.5m x 2.5m concrete pool has a washed pebble finish with black coloured chip added to achieve a crisp blue colouring to the water. To enhance the sophistication of this design, the 2.5m x 2m spa and spillover area is fully tiled with charcoal pearl glass tiles. The glass tiles were also incorporated into the lap pool by being used as step and bench highlighters.

Natural Himalayan Quartz was used for the coping, and was selected to match the same tiles used under the owner’s entertainment area to enable a seamless transition from the entertaining area to the outdoor pool area, and to also assist in creating the impression of more space.

John Clark Pools & Renovations specialise in custom-designed, in-ground concrete swimming pools and spas. The business also has a retail store, providing customers with additional peace of mind due to their continued after sales service and advice. They are a one-stop-shop for all of your pool needs, from construction, through to renovations, repairs, servicing and retail needs.

John Clark Pools & Renovations was started over 25 years ago by John Clark, and is now run by John’s son Travis, and daughter Rebecca. As they are a family business, they take pride in giving every client individualised attention. Most of their business comes from referrals or repeat customers, with many customers preferring the small, family-focused aspect of the company.

In 2009 they received multiple awards at the SPASA Awards: gold for Best Domestic Lap Pool, silver for Best Traditional Domestic Pool under $30,000, bronze for Pool Shop of the Year, and a Save water/Eco-Pool award.
