Skimmer Lids

The HIDE and QUAD series of inlay trays for skimmer box lids and drain covers are revolutionizing landscape design by seamlessly blending unsightly covers and drains into their surroundings.

This seamless integration is achieved using HIDE or QUAD lids that can be matched with surrounding materials for a cohesive look.

HIDE skimmer lids and access covers are available as kits. The inlay for these kits can be filled on-site by the pool builder or tiler.

Alternatively, QUAD skimmer lids offer customization options, allowing them to be pre-filled with a material of your choosing.

Both HIDE and QUAD options are expertly designed to avoid damage like chipping or breaking in stone or tiled areas. They are easy to install on-site and ensure a flush, luxurious finish that enhances the overall aesthetic of your landscaping project, be it a pool, patio, or outdoor area. This approach allows for a sophisticated and integrated finish, seamlessly blending utility and design.

We have built a pool with Environ 2 times now.

Each time they have delivered a high quality finish in a highly professional manner. Environ and their trades were prompt and easy to deal with.

Our finished pool looks beautiful and the colour of the water is magnificent. It is where we will be spending all of this coming summer.

All the tradies worked as a team effectively and responsibly. The advice and response that I received at each stage is adequate and timely.

The team communicates clearly especially the manager Mark and operational officer Jenessa.

Pool shop owner Tim is also very helpful and look forward to using their services going forward.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the excellent job you all did in regards to our pool.”

Thanks to Environ Pools, we now have a resort style pool in our very own backyard. Although your quote was not the cheapest we could find, the inclusions in the package were everything that we were looking for. By including options such as Pool Fencing, Solar Hearing and the spa bench took all the running around away from our already busy schedule.

Right from the start with our encounter with your salesman Brad Stanley, we knew that the decision on who to build our pool was going to be easy. Brad was the only salesman we met with who was not interested in pushing us into a decision on the spot. His manners, easy going nature and sense of humour were pleasant and made the whole initial encounter with Environ Pools most enjoyable.

Once all the preliminaries were complete, we also had the pleasure of meeting our supervisor Bob Sinclair. Bob is also an easy going man and really easy to talk to. Every phone call we made to Bob was handled professionally and even the silliest questions we had were answered promptly.

Every person who worked on our pool was friendly, courteous and really cared for the progression of the pool. The excavator driver was not only quick, but the accuracy in which he dug the hole was magical. The steel fixer tied the steel in l0 hours and the concreters who sculpted the cement into perfect curves. The landscapers who placed the bush rocks, Sleeper Wharf and the waterfall, were very artistic and had a really good eye for what we wanted. And the list just goes on and on…

Once again, congratulations on the excellent workmanship and the professional approach to our pool. We are extremely satisfied and have no hesitation in recommending Environ Pools to anyone who is looking at getting a pool.

We would also like to extend an invitation to Environ Pools to return to the site once we have completed landscaping to take pictures to publish on your website to show others what a truly wonderful pool you have created.

“You built this for us four years ago and we still just love it.”

Just an after note on our pool. You built this for us four years ago and we still just love it. You built exactly what we wanted. We have just sold the house and will miss the pool so much.

Our new house has a fibreglass pool and as soon as we can, we want to remove it and get you to build the same one as we had. The photos we include do not do it justice. Once again was a pleasure working with you and your team.

“Quite simply, you delivered on everything you promised us from the beginning.”

We would just like to take the opportunity to thank the team at Environ Pools. Quite simply, you delivered on everything you promised us from the beginning. We struggled to find a pool builder that was willing to assist us in what we could and couldn’t do from a design point of view, and that is where the difference between you guys and the competition started.

It didn’t stop there once our signature was on the contract either; the pool shell was in the ground quickly and more importantly for us, without much effort or stress on our part. We had a great team of guys working on our pool headed up by Mark, who answered our questions and promptly returned calls when we could not contact him directly. We now have a beautiful pool, which is the envy of the street with the Magna pool option, and a lot of landscaping in front of us, but that is half the fun of it, so people tell us…

We would like to say building with Environ was easy, low stress and affordable what more could we ask for; we would definitely recommend Environ to our friends in the future as we know they would not let us down. Thanks guys.

“I just wanted to send an email on behalf of both Andrew and l, to say thank you to you and your team!”

From the first meeting we had with you, throughout the negotiation process, to the actual construction, we have been happy with the service and communication provided by Environ.

Our job wasn’t a simple one with access issues and “record rain” but in the end, it was quite painless and the finished product is excellent. The shape is perfect and the surface smooth, which for us was a key point with the little one’s (who for the record, won’t get out of the pool).

I have several friends who have been in the process of completing pools too and I can honestly say none of them have many good things to say about their choice of builders. We, on the other hand, cannot recommend you highly enough, and will not hesitate to in the future.

I’d like to make mention of Tony – l’m so happy we were lucky enough to have him as our supervisor. He was friendly, accommodating and an all round nice guy!

Thank you again, clearly we made the right decision to go with Environ. Hope you, your family and your team have a great Christmas.

“Thanks again Environ! Sorry for the ‘cheesy’ testimonial but the team made a big, stressful project much easier than we could have hoped for!”

A massive ‘Thank you’ to the whole team at Environ Pools for a very impressive result with our pool project.

We went through the exhausting and stressful process of many quotes from various pool builders but in the end, Guy from the Sales and Marketing Division made our choice simple.

Not being in the building industry ourselves, we really needed to feel like we could entrust our hard-earned money and backyard dream into the hands of a team that could get the job done within our budget and result in a product we were really happy with. Guy was always very prompt at returning calls and answering questions and guided us through the decision making process of the initial planning phases of what we actually wanted – before we even chose a builder! It was the reassurance of choice, flexibility and the promise of guaranteed workmanship from Guy that set them apart from other quotes we received.

Further guidance and options were offered by Bob and the excavation team and they were very impressive in their honest appraisals – even to the point where they showed us where and how we could save money and avoid extra expenses without compromising our overall product. Bob even improved our initial projected result by suggesting some excellent design options during the preparation phase.

Following this, all remaining construction stages were completed on time, without deviation, within budget… as planned (despite being in the busy season)!

Matt did an excellent job overseeing the whole project, remaining in direct contact at all times and completed the finishing touches to the pool resulting in a backyard transformation that exceeded expectations. Our yard even looks more spacious with the pool which really surprised us.

Thanks again Environ! Sorry for the ‘cheesy’ testimonial but the team made a big, stressful project much easier than we could have hoped for!

“…it was a pleasure to deal with someone as honest, frank, understanding and responsive.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for your assistance and commitment to us from the initial quote stage with Peter and the construction stage with Mark.

I found dealing with Peter from the moment he arrived at the premises to quote on the project and through to the stage we made the commitment to run with Environ Pools, it was a pleasure to deal with someone as honest, frank, understanding and responsive. I would like to mention it was Peter’s honesty, commitment and follow up that won the project for Environ Pools.

Also, Mark was excellent in his role as project organiser. He also was honest and committed in all stages. Last but not least I would like to mention the trades people that Environ have on their books are reliable with the correct attitude which should endeavour an excellent word of mouth for further projects. I would have no hesitation in recommending Environ Pools.
