Old shipping containers where already turned into pool houses. Now they are being converted into top quality container pools! A new concept was born during the 2020 lockdown – to propose modular, flexible, ecological shipping container pools. This pool innovation designed by Soniga, a start-up based in Toulouse, France, opens new horizons for the pool sector.
A great idea for private pools
The concept – to convert disused shipping containers acquired from a company in Castelnau-Estrétefonds. After refurbishment, the construction of a polyester resin pool and the addition of top-quality equipment, containerized pools can be installed anywhere, even on sloping grounds, at a loss leader price of €16,500.
With its upcycling approach, shipping container pools also meet the requirement for sustainable development. An approach reinforced by this new product’s durability as its steel structure has high resistance to bad weather, corrosion and ground movements.
Very aware of the new market challenges, Soniga’s concept is to customize its shipping container pools and individualize them through top-level designs.
Design and equipment make each shipping container pool unique!
As the years go by, pools get smaller but are fitted with increasingly innovative equipment. The start-up Soniga fully exploits this trend towards “100% customizable” pools with wood cladding, vegetalized walls, windows, pool colors and terrace claddings.
Every client can personalize the pool design which best fits their garden. And shipping container pools adapt to every kind of use – counter-current swimming, aqua biking, waterfalls or spa bathing – Soniga pools can be urban, sporting, for leisure or wellbeing.

These innovative pools are, of course, connected for filtration management, wintering and lighting. Last but not least, shipping container pools are fitted with all the machinery necessary to ensure optimal water quality (heat pump, pH regulator, salt electrolyzer, etc.) as well as safety equipment (alarm, roller shutters, cover, etc.).

Soniga has designed its innovative pools to meet new demands from home owners. As this niche market goes on growing, Soniga’s probable success is likely to inspire plunge pool manufacturers.
