Wooden Pools - Whether it's above ground or semi-inground, round, oval or rectangle, these solid wood pools are uniquely stylish and elegant. They are available in a palette of colors designed to compliment the natural nobility of wood while enhancing your outdoor environment. These beautifully constructed woods pools are a work of art and a serious departure from the typical steel or resin above ground pool. Their striking looks and real wood construction are often described as "lawn furniture" as they are as much a pleasure to look as they are great at providing years of enjoyment for families of all sizes. It's clear to see that nothing beats the natural look of wood.
This wood swimming pool model is the 8'x16' rectangle Somoa. This beauty is constructed using treated red pine for the wall panels, columns and top ledges. The extra wide 9" solid wood ledges provide the ultimate in handcrafted feel. One look at their broad sturdy construction and you will know this is no ordinary pool.
The Somoa is designed to be installed semi inground only and must be installed between 34"-40" into the earth.
Wood Construction Specs All of the wood pools offered are built from treated pine. This species of wood is well known for its resistance to harsh weather conditions, regardless of season. In addition to its unsurpassed beauty, the durability of this wood species far surpasses that of cedar. This is not surprising, since treated pine is a wood species that is much sturdier than cedar. Compared to Red Cedar, treated pine is 31% harder, 30% more rupture resistant and 47% more shock resistant. This makes treated pine the perfect material for wood pool construction.
The wood used is pressure treated using a new ACQ (Alkaline Copper Quaternary) green process that poses no danger to human health or to the environment and does not contaminated water. This new process is also called “alkaline copper preservative composite”. This is a non-toxic and green ACQ process.
This preservation technology, which is the basis for ACQ treated wood, has been used commercially in throughout Europe, Asia and the United States since 1991. It is also used in the construction of pressure-treated structures for playgrounds, picnic tables, terraces, patios, docks, etc.
