A flexible waterproof coating is applied
With the pool shell now waterproof, tiling can begin. The tanking membrane is a premium, flexible product which can withstand water pressure up to 3 Bar. The product is available directly from us, call on 01242 573572 to find out more or place an order.
The swimming pool, balance tanks, spa and steps have been poured
Concrete Poured Successfully
This project comprises of a large spa bath, uniquely shaped deck level pool and balance tanks for each. The pool will have an insulated slatted cover which will be hidden when closed. Colour changing LED lights will be used to light up the water. These are controllable and compatible with automation systems.
Insulation has been a priority throughout this project. The project location is fairly exposed and is predominantly in the shade. Insulation panels have been installed externally and Quad-lock panels forming the pool’s internal structure. The slab will also be insulated, as will the base in the spa. The purpose of this insulation is minimise heat loss through the structure, thus saving potentially thousands compared to an uninsulated pool. The insulated slatted cover will help to counteract heat loss through evaporation.
The spa requires rendering prior to tanking
Hydrotherapy Spa Rendered
Using specialist products, which can be found on our Pool Construction Products, the Quad-Lock shell is rendered prior to
tanking. The bench in the middle is an air massage bed, which will be both sensory and
relaxing for its users at this specialist school for children with disabilities.
Starter bars are chemically anchored
The starter bars are chemically anchored into the concrete base, providing reinforcement to the concrete structure. The structure will be built upwards, with horizontal steel every course. Both the spa pool and balance tank will be insulated, dramatically reducing heat loss. To read more about the benefits of insulation click here.
