Swimming Pool Design Awards

Friday, July 27th, 2012

The 2012 Swimming Pool “Masters of Design” Awards have been announced in America. The awards are split in to various categories and are only for pools in the United States. We thought you might like to see some photos of the pools. Some of them are not designed with sober European taste but they are all spectacular in their own way.

What is worse than a bull in a china shop? – a bull in your swimming pool

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

If you had a china shop and a bull wandered in at least you could shoo it out through the door.

Pity this poor pool owner then who found an escaped bull in his swimming pool. The two year old bovine beast was trying to make the aquaintance of some cows in a neighbouring field when he escaped and in trying to avoid re-capture burst through a fence and ended up in the pool.

"I think I'll go for a china shop next time"

"Oh, how undignified!"


The pool had to be drained and the bull lifted out by a forklift with help from the fire brigade. The bull was unharmed and the pool only suffered minor damage.
