We build and renovate swimming pools for homeowners and commercial clients within Pretoria, Centurion, Midrand, Krugersdorp and Johannesburg.
Building one is a big decision; therefore, we assist our clients through the entire decision-making process advising on shape, size, finish and mainly safety in order to provide a functional solution that still meets your aesthetic expectations.
We adhere to strict building standards and regulations to guarantee a long-lasting product, as well as ensuring that you don’t have to alter your plans midway through the project. We can build domestic pools, commercial pools, do major renovations and minor repairs. We specialise in fiberglass and designer gunite pools. You can soundly rely on the guarantee that our staff are knowledgeable and competent in all these important areas.
There is hardly anything that we cannot help you with.
The first step would be to decide whether you would want a pre-designed plan from Outdoor Creations or if you would like to work with our pool contractors designing your own custom pool.
Remember that we do not only do swimming pools but take your entire landscape into consideration due to our expertise in this field. Therefore, we will ensure that your swimming pool’s functionality and look will fit with its entire surroundings.

The building process
We would like to share the systematic steps we take in creating your beautiful new poolscape.
Swimming Pool Design
All our clients will receive a 3D animated design before construction begins. These are very realistic and allow you to see all the details of the design and enable you to make any revisions or improvements if necessary.
The dimensions of the swimming pool design are layed out onto the proposed site area. This truly helps to physically see the outlines of the actual size and shape of the pool. Before the ground is then actually excavated, the client can make changes if necessary.
The site is then prepared for the pool construction by excavating the grass, underlying soil and possible rock.
Forming and Steel
Steel and wood are used to form a solid foundation for any home. This is also used to form the shape and structure of your swimming pool. It serves as the framework for the poolscape and contains high structural integrity.
Electrical and plumbing
The pluming and electrical components are then installed. We ensure that the plumbing is pressure tested and the electrical components meet the necessary regulations.
This stage is quite awesome. The Gunite is applied by using high-pressure hoses to create the tough inner shell of your new swimming pool. It’s great to see the Gunite concrete applied and worked onto the forming structure. It’s like a real-time vision of your dream pool coming to life.
This is where the perimeters around your pool are installed. Other features such as outdoor fireplaces, bomas, braai areas, firepits, fountains and other amazing features that compliment your pool are created.
Tiles, coping, masonry and stone
We have a variety of choices that can be used for the final finishes and linings of your swimming pool, such as natural stone tiles, slates, ceramics and mosaics. The coping can be crafted from limestone, brick, cement or an assortment of other materials. We go to great lengths to monitor quality during the installation process to ensure that the final finish is done flawless and built to last.
The plaster is blown onto the gunite and requires a quick, experienced and hard-working team to smooth the surface to assure a beautiful finish. The swimming pool is then immediately filled with water. The pool should then be “brushed” twice a day to ensure the smoothest surface possible.
Start-up and Training
The initial start-up and maintenance of your swimming pool can leave you overwhelmed. We will however, train you on how to use the controls of the pool equipment, as well as a manual that explains how to easily take care of your pool. But we will be available to answer any questions.
This seems like a daunting process, but let us enlighten you with 10 reasons on how you will benefit from installing and building a new pool:
Encourage family time
Building a pool will make lasting memories as you teach your children to swim, play with them in the pool or simply barbeque with friends and family around a fun and relaxing space.
Create an outdoor resort at your home
A well-designed swimming pool can turn your backyard into an elegant outdoor oasis, because with all the beautiful features and other unique amenities it becomes an inviting centrepiece.
Throw a party
It becomes such a great way to entertain. Invite your friends and neighbours over for a poolside barbeque or a simple cool-off.
Stay healthy and lose weight
You can spend time exercising in your own pool, without having to spend money on going to a gym. Swimming provides an excellent total body workout with low risk of injury.
Unwind and relax
After a long day at work, the pool becomes a wonderful escape to take a quick dip in. It’s the best way to relax and get rid of stress. You’ll also sleep much better.
Increase the value of your home
Your property becomes more attractive to prospective homebuyers and according to recent studies owning a pool increases the property value by as much as 15%.
You can beat the summer heat by lounging in the cool waters and save on the air conditioning bill.
Keep an eye on your kids
You can give your children and their friends a safe and convenient place to hang out! This can help you in knowing who your children’s friends are and keeping them close by.
Save some money
It’s easier to finance and maintain than most people thing. And in the long run, they are less expensive than big family vacations and other entertainment options.
Long lasting fun
It’s a great investment that will reap rewards for a lifetime. A vacation, a movie, or a visit to a theme park will all come to an end, but a pool will be enjoyed by your friends and family for years to come.
