Swimming pool for sale.
« on: May 18, 2019, 11:37:56 AM »
We purchased a diy pool kit and have just applied and received permission,unfortunately it's looking impossible to get machinery to the site we wanted the pool so it is with great regret we have given up on the idea.
This is a new kit however we are the second person to own it as previous owners struggled with permission.I have attached 2 links for the pool ,it is an inground diy pool made from polymer resin panels, it can be made into any shape we opted for 8m x 4m oblong shape,we have all the parts apart from a pump(?100-200) and the vinyl cover which is made to fit(ours was going to be ?900) the value of the parts is above ?13000 i am happy to take what I paid which was ?5000.

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago we have now given up on the idea of a swimming pool purely down to site access. I forgot to mention that the kit includes fibreglass steps approx 2000 eur and the coping stone kit approx 800 eur ,additional parts you need  would be roughly 1200 eur with Labour and concrete would give you a professional hotel style pool.
We now need the space , i mentioned i would take for the lot what I paid 5000 eur,but I will accept any reasonable offer! Collection only.

If you get no takers here have you thought of advertising on Subito.it? There is a link, right at the top of the page, just underneath the banner.

I think that might be because most of us who have pools have opted for the much cheaper and easier option of an above ground pool. You can buy them in a reasonable size for around 400 euro and you don't need any permission to put them up. I only know one person here who has an in ground pool. I think because of this it might be harder to sell than you think. Try ebay.it you might have some luck there if no takers on Subito.

Thanks for the comment Molino , I would accept 3000 euros i suppose which is incredibly cheap for an inground pool especially if you have access to digging equipment.
