We build a pool in our plot
Currently there is a wide variety of different types of pools. The pool of concrete is considered to be the most durable and reliable, while its height can be right on the floor level or slightly above the floor level. It is worth noting that the first option is more practical, not troublesome, and quite simple to install. The website of the company AKVARAY presents a huge selection of different pools, all of their diversity, you can watch here.
When both the type of pool and its type and shape are chosen, they begin to dig a pit in a chosen place for a future construction. The pit escapes slightly more than the estimated size of the future pool. The depth should be about 40 centimeters more, and the width of 80 centimeters. Throughout the pit lay insulation material. To do this, you can take a slab of mineral wool, polystyrene foam or polyurethane foam.
Immediately before starting to fill the pool, first make a layer of lightweight concrete with a thickness of 5 centimeters. It is also important to take care of waterproofing, which can be added to concrete. But most often as a waterproofing mastic, films and membranes are used.
Then you can start pouring the pool bath. Concrete should be poured with a thickness of at least 20 centimeters. But for this you need a formwork.
Filling the bottom of the pools do with a slope of about three degrees, it is necessary for more rapid water flow and drainage. Above the walls of the pool it is necessary to make a special overflow chute, which will ensure the discharge of water, and at the same time the absence of various films on water and debris. Such a gutter also needs to be done with a slight bias, which should go in the direction of the drain.
The east is mounted at the stage of pouring the pool bowl, when a pipe is placed on the surface of the concrete, and after it is dried, the pipes are removed. But it is worth remembering that the pipes are removed when the concrete is already grabbed, but still not too hard. Otherwise, the pipe will need to knock out of the mixture.
When the bowl is ready, it’s time to fill the tracks around the pool. Their width should be at least 40 centimeters. Armature and waterproofing are also placed on the tracks. Then the pool and the tracks begin to finish with special waterproof tiles. For its fixing, water-repellent glue darlings are used, the quality of which should be at a height. It is worth noting that if you choose dark tiles for facing the pool and tracks, it will absorb more heat than tiles of light colors.
You can build a swimming pool on your site with your own hands, because the process is not at all difficult. But the construction of the pool, the height of which will be higher than the level of the tracks, is more troublesome, which is better to entrust to the master.
