BUILDING THE POOL
Now it's time to get to work
The quick route to your very own dream pool
Triathlete Sabine Lischka had dreamed of a pool in her garden for a long time. In spring 2020, the elite athlete finally turned her plan into reality with the help of her husband. It was clear from the start that they wanted the pool fitted out with the turbine-driven HydroStar counter-current system from BINDER. “The system generates a current similar to that in open-water swimming,” the triathlete says enthusiastically. The pool was constructed in record time; all work was completed and the turbine swimming system was installed in just four weeks. Now, Sabine Lischka doesn’t have to travel to her local pool each time she wants to train. She just has to take a few steps across the grass.
Trends in swimming pool technology
What is currently on trend with respect to pools and where are we headed? We asked Ute Wanschura, Managing Director of the German Association for Swimming Pools and Spas (bsw).
BINDER: Ms Wanschura: If you look back on the last few years: For you, what were the major trends in the swimming pool sector?
Ute Wanschura: It could be said that the industry experienced a boom in the years 2020/2021: people were unable to travel due to the pandemic, so they focused on making their homes nice. For many, this naturally included a pool. Increased health awareness supported this development – as did the ECB’s low-interest policy, which makes investments in your home an attractive option.
BINDER: As the association’s Managing Director, you have extremely good contacts and get to know a lot: What do customers want from a counter-current system?
Ute Wanschura: Convenience is a key point: above all, the system needs to be modern and easy to use. The topics of environmental protection and energy efficiency are also important. I think that BINDER’s turbine swimming systems cover these areas very well.
BINDER: Can a counter-current system of this type actually increase the value of a property?
Ute Wanschura: Yes, definitely. A survey by the Internet portal Immowelt showed that a pool raises the value of a property by around 13 per cent. With a house price of EUR 500,000, this would mean an increase in value of EUR 65,000.
BINDER: What are the prospects like for the swimming pool sector in the next few years?
Ute Wanschura: I think that there is a future for the market for private pools. There’s a great deal in favour of this, including the fact that the weather is getting warmer. It’s worth having a pool, especially since they can now be used from March to October. Some people even take the plunge in December (laughs). In Germany, we have 16 million privately owned homes, but only 2.1 million pools. So there’s definitely upward potential.
HydroStar makes a garden paradise perfect
GrünForm Achtermann GmbH from Springe makes the most wonderful garden dreams come true. A pool is an essential component – preferably with a counter-current system. Owner and Managing Director Maximilian Holzhausen recommends BINDER’s turbine swimming systems to his customers. To enable all interested parties to try out the systems themselves, Holzhausen has installed a demonstration pool in his show garden. Even the biggest sceptics are won over by a test in person: “Anyone who has swum against one of the systems buys one,” reports Holzhausen.
Alongside the unique current, the expert considers the ease of installation another benefit: “We get a finished product that we have to set into the pool wall. Traditional pump-driven systems provide much more installation work. To fit the BINDER systems, two employees need a maximum of one morning. For us, that’s great.”
