One lucky family in East Sussex became the proud owners of a Luxe one piece swimming pool this year, and went from purchasing to paddling in a matter of four weeks!

Giles Finished Instal

The Luxe Pools brand, which is stocked exclusively by Paramount, presents an innovative one piece pool solution with all the necessary accessories built right in. Not only did it need to be luxurious, but also safe for children and pets while not dominating the landscape of the garden.

Alex Howell from Giles Leisure in West Sussex recommended the Luxe as a no brainer solution to the problem of a seamless outdoor pool area that wouldn’t detract from the garden’s views.

“The client is a long-haul pilot so was already aware of the product,” notes Steve Martin. “We recommended a Luxe Pools model because it represents extremely good value for money and having worked with Luxe Pools products previously we were confident of the quick turnaround time.”


With Giles’ advice the family chose an 8 x 3.7m Wanaka Luxe pool, which came with a slatted safety cover and a counter-current machine. Also fitted was an air to water heat pump (supplied by Paramount Pools) and a salt chlorinator. All in all, the project took a mere four weeks to finish.


The completed pool was lowered into an excavated hole just 300mm wider than the shell of the pool, with drainage and floor base already prepared. All it then needed was a crane to lower it in, and a laser level to ensure the pool was straight before backfilling with non-expansive materials.

All of these Luxe pools are built with glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), a much simpler and more affordable material than concrete, and come with fully-integrated covers as well as options for hydrotherapy jets, ladders, light fittings and cascading fountains. There are fifteen models to choose from and many extras to mix and match!

What’s more, they come with a 20 year structural warranty, and a 10 year colour-osmosis guarantee.


As we celebrate our thirtieth year in business, we look forward to working with the Luxe company

“Having visited the Luxe factory personally and with more than three decades of industry experience under our belts, I can vouch for the reliability of this product as well as the outstanding pre and post installation back up. In fact, we are so confident in the Luxe range that we have invested in a stock program to hold 8 and 10m pools for immediate delivery!” – Steve Martin, Managing Director of Paramount Pools
