Final position is set, construction can begin
New Deck Level Pool Project
The pool will be ‘deck level’, meaning the water will be the same height as the floor in the new building. A slot between the tiles around the perimeter will receive overflowing water.
The pool features an insulated slatted cover, which is housed in a pit at one end of the pool. The cover is on a motorised reel, and can be controlled by a wireless remote.
The level of the water automatically rises and falls depending on cover position; when open, the water level rises until overflowing. When the cover is closed, the water level drops to minimise evaporation which occurs when in an overflowing state. Read More…
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.
Edging tiles are fixed
The surround tiles have nearly been finished, with the pool tiles not far behind. Stainless steel skimmers with an automatic top-up have been installed. A chromed stainless steel faceplate will be installed after tiling is finished. To view the construction products used please follow this link.
Mosaics are fixed to tanking
Tiling has begun at our local site, a refurbishment project to both house and modernise a dated, outdoor pool. The previous tiles have been removed, the shell has had its depth increased and has been tanked. The tile adhesive used is a rapid curing, water resistant product. More about the adhesive can be found here.
The client asked Brookforge to convert an existing outdoor pool into a modern indoor pool. A pool hall has been constructed, enabling year round use of the pool. Additional features include:
- Depth increase
- Sprayed waterproof tanking
- Re-tiling of the pool and surround
- Stainless steel skimmers with automatic top-up
- Hidden, insulated slatted cover
- Heatstar air handling unit with air/water heating, dehumidification, heat pump and energy recovery
- Air handling ductwork and powder coated grilles
- Intellipool remote monitoring and control system
