ONE Pool vs Concrete Pools

When it comes to choosing your perfect swimming pool, the decision requires consideration of factors such as installation speed, durability, maintenance requirements, and energy efficiency. In recent years, ONE Pool by Aqua Platinum has emerged as a preferred alternative to traditional concrete pools, offering a range of advantages that make them an attractive choice for homeowners seeking both in functionality and aesthetics. Below we explore the key differences between ONE Pool and concrete pools, shedding light on why ONE Pool by Aqua Platinum stands out as a superior option.

ONE Pool vs Traditional Concrete Pools

Fully Tiled:

ONE Pool proudly stands out by offering fully tiled designs, a stark difference from traditional concrete pools. In our commitment to excellence, we employ JointPoint® technology in all our tiling, ensuring not only a seamless and uniform installation but also delivering unparalleled benefits in terms of flexibility and strength. With fibreglass options and a range of designs, we have something for everyone.

Limited Chemical Usage

Chemical usage in pool maintenance is a concern for many, and ONE Pools offers a solution. The non-porous surface of ONE Pools reduces the need for excessive chemical usage to maintain water quality. In contrast, concrete pools require more chemicals to combat algae and bacteria growth in the porous surface, potentially impacting water quality and increasing the overall cost of pool maintenance.

These aspects underscore the benefits of opting for our ONE pool designs compared to traditional concrete pools. Nonetheless, it is crucial to take into account individual preferences, financial constraints, and specific requirements before arriving at a decision.

Installation Speed

One of the most notable advantages of a ONE Pool is the speed of installation. Unlike concrete pools, which involve a lengthy construction process with curing times and multiple steps, ONE Pools are pre-manufactured off-site and simply need to be placed in the excavated hole. The whole process from enquiry to commissioning usually takes between 12-16 weeks so you can have your dream pool sooner than you think! This streamlined installation process not only saves time but also minimises disruptions to your property, allowing you to enjoy your pool sooner.


Durability is a crucial consideration for any pool owner, and here, ONE Pool shines through. The material used in ONE Pools is known for its flexibility, allowing it to adapt to ground movement. This inherent flexibility reduces the risk of structural issues and cracks, providing a long-lasting and resilient pool. In contrast, concrete pools, while durable, can develop cracks over time, especially in areas with soil movement or temperature fluctuations.

Low Maintenance

Keeping a pool clean and well-maintained can be a time-consuming task, but ONE Pools simplify this process. The smooth, non-porous surface of ONE Pools resists algae and bacteria growth, minimising the need for regular cleaning and chemical treatments. On the other hand, the porous surface of concrete pools fosters the growth of algae and bacteria, necessitating more frequent maintenance efforts and chemical usage.

Comfortable Surface

Swimming should be a comfortable and enjoyable experience, and ONE Pool delivers on this front. The smooth surface texture of ONE Pools is gentle on the skin and feet, ensuring a pleasant swimming experience for all. In contrast, the rougher surface texture of concrete pools can potentially cause discomfort for swimmers, detracting from the overall enjoyment of the pool.
