I am hoping that I will shortly be able to spend a lot more time in the Cantal, and my thoughts now turn to the acre of garden surrounding my house. I want to install a swimming pool, to keep me fit, and to make the most of the Cantal's wonderful sunshine record.

Does anyone in the locality have a pool, and if so can they recommend an installer (and just as important, tell me who to avoid)?

To be avoided:
Waterair
Desjoyaux
Magiline

All very low grade, poor performance and expensive for what they are. They are poor hydraulic performance wise which means in an effort to get them to work you'll use more electricity and more time than is really needed with a good pool. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to the three as they do provide me with extra work though.

It is quite an investment so getting the result you want needs careful consideration from the builders and not just what they want to sell. Real knowledge of the subject in France is very hard to find despite the huge number of pools in the country which may surprise you but it's what I have found from the majority of pools I have visited. Much easier and cheaper to incorporate good design in at the start than trying to put errors right later.

No Problem, just don't want to see you or anyone else getting caught, seen too many already.
