Year Round Use of Your Pool
you can enjoy your pool in nearly any climate throughout
the entire year. For some, particularly in the Southern
States, the swimming season is limited to only 3 or 4 months
per year. Our domes are designed for usage in these types
of areas so you can either swim all year round, or greatly
extend your normal swimming season.
purchase our domes for various reasons. Some of these include:
To maintain physical fitness programs all year.
• The pure enjoyment of swimming whenever they desire.
• Extending of their swimming season.
• Training for swim teams, water polo, other water
• Medical needs which require swimming as a therapy.
Keep leaves, flying insects, and debris out of the pool.
• Use as a combination swimming pool dome & greenhouse.
• Eliminate the need and expense of winterising the
• Easy access to the pool without having to remove a
is an issue which confronts all pool owners. Where there is
water, the potential for accidents increases. An AussiePoolDome
is not a substitute for a well-maintained
Australian Standard pool fence, however, one of the many well
thought out features on all of our swimming pool enclosures
is the ability to place a lock on the entry to keep out any
"curious" small children and pets. The entry can
also be locked when you are away for the day, or out of town
for an extended period of time. This extra measure of security
gives you and your loved ones extra "peace of mind".
pool maintenance and pool operation can amount to a considerable
amount of money and time. With the placement of an AussiePoolDome
on your pool, the costs of chemicals, heating, and water replenishment
will noticeably decrease.
Since the swimming pool dome covers the entire pool, there
will be a minimal loss of chemicals and water through evaporation.
Keeping your chemical balance at the correct levels will also
be an easier task as not only will less chemicals be required,
the chemicals remaining in the pool will not expend themselves
as quickly due to the absence of the normal "contaminants"
associated with an open air pool. You will save money and
your pool in the early Autumn and late Winter seasons will
also be less expensive. The dome is actually a barrier between
the outside air and your pool water. As the heat rises off
of the surface of the water, it is trapped within the pool
enclosure. Heat from the sun will help to heat the water and
the air within the dome as you will see when you read the
section on the "greenhouse" effect.
"lifespan" of our domes varies somewhat due to the
following situations and conditions:
1. Climate in which the
pool dome is installed.
2. Cleaning and subsequent storage of the dome.
3. Whether or not the dome is left up in hotter weather.
4. Chemical balance of the swimming pool water.
1. Generally speaking, the
hotter the climate the shorter the life of the unit. In
warmer areas such as Broken Hill we'll get about 7 to 9
years of service from a dome. In the colder regions, a life
span of 9 to 12 years is not uncommon. Please note that
these lifespans are based on similar installations in the
2. Proper cleaning and storage
of the unit will prolong the life of the product and make
the following season's installation much more pleasant.
It is not a difficult procedure and the long term benefits
are worth it. The unit should be stored in the original
carton located in a dry area. AussiePoolDomes
offers a Summer storage service (presently only available
in Melbourne and Geelong Metropolitan areas).Click HERE
3. If a swimming pool enclosure
is left up in very hot weather for extended periods of time,
there may be a problem. In this situation, the unit can
heat up excessively from the combination of the sun and
the accumulation of the retained heat within itself. This
heat can cause the pool dome to stretch out of shape and
it will not return to it's original design. Take it down
before those really hot months arrive!
4. Proper water chemical
balance will help to prolong the life of your unit.Keeping
this item in order will help you maximize the full potential
of the life of your swimming pool dome.

unique benefit of owning our product is that in most climates
it can double as a "Greenhouse". Those plants that
you would have normally brought into the house in the winter,
can stay in the humid environment of the swimming pool dome.
Many people report that their plants actually "thrive"
in the winter as the heat coming off of the pool water is
trapped within the dome and the combination of that and the
sun's warmth create a comfortable area for you and your plants.
A good example of how the sun can warm the inside of a dome
is to compare it to a car. If your car is left with the windows
"up", the temperature will be much warmer on the
inside of the vehicle than the air temperature outside. This
occurs even on overcast days as the ultra-violet rays from
the sun will actually penetrate through the clouds.
entering the swimming pool enclosure you will feel a slight
"rush" of air escaping from the unit. Once inside,
one of the first things you will notice is the actual interior
size of the unit. A dome viewed from the inside looks much
larger than it does from outside! As the walls are ceiling
and walls are partially curved, sounds within the swimming
pool enclosure are magnified but slightly "muffled".
The moisture content in the inside air of the unit is noticeable
but not unpleasant. On colder days the moisture content in
the air will rise and can form water droplets on the ceiling.
Steam coming off of the pool water is possible on very cold
The movement of the air within the dome
is very slight and normally it is not felt by the users.
The sound of the blower (when it's running) is quiet and
smooth even if you're standing right by it.
Overall, it's like being in "a world
of your own". Isolated from the rest of the world,
but only a step away from your home.
