Frequently Asked Questions

PRICE – How much does a pool cost?

Since the pool is tailor-made in accordance with your needs it is difficult to establish its final price: it will be determined by a series of factors and on a case-by-case basis. For the final price we recommend reaching out to us to ask for a quote.

Here you can find some elements that will determine the final price:

DIMENSIONS The larger and deeper the pool, the greater the quantity of material used, and therefore the higher the price.

SEATS, LOUNGE SEATS, STAIRS Any variation in the structure requires additional materials and manual labour which eventually result in a price increase. The same applies to the addition of one or more glass wall.

FILTRATION SYSTEM The infinity edge system is more expensive as it requires a specific collection tank to be manufactured: in it, the water will be constantly collected to always guarantee the infinity edge.

SHAPE round-shaped pools generally need more time to be manufactured and therefore their price is higher, but we assess every case specifically.

EXTRAS the more the extras (hydromassage, upstream swimming, lightning system, external coating), the higher the price.

Naturally it’s important to separate the manufacturing costs from construction work and transportation costs. The pool comes complete with its filtration system (or just the framework, where applicable). We are not responsible for the cost of the construction work needed for the concrete base. Transportation costs are quoted separately since they vary depending on each finished product and the location in which it will be installed.

When considering the purchase of a pool, keep in mind that our products are not made of fibreglass, masonry or PVC-coated and tightened steel panels: we use the best technology on the market and its value will pay off over time as it won’t get damaged, it won’t crack, and there won’t be any leakages due to deterioration.

TIMINGS – How long does it take to manufacture a pool?

A key advantage of stainless steel pools is unquestionably the production time. Of course this can vary according to the pool’s dimensions and complexity, but generally we can manufacture a pool (even a large one) within one to three months. If the pool must be manufactured in single pieces for size reasons, it will be welded in situ by our team. In this case the assemblage work could generally require one to three days, depending on the structure of the building site, the size of the pool, and any possible complications during the installation works.

COMPARISONS WITH TRADITIONAL TECNOLOGIES – What are the advantages of choosing a stainless steel pool instead of other, more traditional technologies?

Stainless steel is a favourable choice, whether you are looking to build a new pool or to renew your old one: you can simply install the new stainless steel pool using the pre-existing base.

Structural strength. The solidity of a masonry pool, made in reinforced concrete, hinges on how professional the building company is: they need to use high quality materials which are crack-resistant and they need to guarantee precision in their work. The structural strength of a masonry pool is undoubtedly inferior than a stainless steel one: whilst the latter is made from a flexible yet solid material, the former could instead be exposed to thermal shocks and soil settlements.
Impermeability. As concrete is not an impermeable material, before placing tiles, mosaics or other elements, it is necessary to carry out waterproofing work: this, however, will not ensure a 100% impermeability rate. Soil settlements, thermal shocks during the coldest months, the frequent interchange between a full and an empty pool, can ultimately compromise its durability. There is a chance that water might infiltrate between the cracks corroding the iron structure, damaging the whole coating further and eventually leading to an inevitable renovation. Furthermore, in the event of a leakage, it may not always be possible to locate the damage.
Maintenance and Hygiene. Unlike stainless steel pools, masonry ones are prone to deterioration, bulging, cracks and detachments, so you will likely have to take into account the need for future renovation works. Stainless steel pools are more convenient from a hygienic point of view, as they are not porous and therefore are not exposed to bacteria and their proliferation. Thanks to their smooth surface, they ensure a simple and effective cleaning process.
Manufacturing time. The manufacture of masonry pools is affected by weather conditions because of the materials’ drying times and maintenance. Generally, to be produced they require a greater amount of time than stainless steel pools: these are manufactured within one to three months, depending on the complexity of the project. Since stainless steel pools do not require particular construction work in situ, the building site will also be cleaner and the installation quicker: you’ll just need to be there, lay down the pool, install it, and there you go.

Structural strength. The structure of a fibreglass pool is not flexible and they are therefore affected by soil settlements: they must be laid down on a levelled and very stable ground, otherwise the glass might break. These pools come in fixed shapes and you will not be able to personalize them, nor have an infinity edge.
Impermeability. Fibreglass pools are impermeable but not very resistant, and they deteriorate quickly, losing their shininess, bulging and cracking within a few years.
Maintenance and Hygiene. Since fibreglass pools deteriorate quickly, you’d have to take into account future maintenance works. However, fibreglass cannot always be salvaged and in some cases you might need to entirely replace the pool with a new one.
Manufacturing time. Fibreglass pools, just like stainless steel ones, only need to be shipped and installed, therefore production time between the two does not vary.

CLEANING PROCESS AND MANTAINANCE – how to look after a stainless steel pool?

To keep a stainless steel pool clean, you’ll have to be careful not to use products that contains hydrocloridric acid (chlorine): they are not only dangerous for the skin, but also for stainless steel, and they could damage and eventually ruin your pool.

SUPPLY – What does Aquadeva supply?

We supply a pool complete with electrical switchboard and unit, and we also cover transportation and welding in situ when necessary. We supply the technical drawings and all the customer support and guidance you could need. We are not responsible for any excavations or building works, electrical connections or flooring works. If you need these services you should contact expert professionals in this field.
