Installing swimming pool balance tank

With any overflow pool the ability to maintain the flow of water can be achieved with a swimming pool balance tank. The swimming pool balance tank allows for surges of water from the overflow channel to be temporarily stored so a constant flow of water can be maintained through the plant room water treatment systems. Below are pictures taken during the installation of a prefabricated swimming pool balance tank with Brookforge recently installed.

The balance tank is being cast in re-enforced concrete so that heavy plant equipment can be driven over the top of the balance tank during the future development of the site.

Pool Balance Tank and Steps Constructed using ICF

Pool Balance Tank and steps using ICF
Swimming pool balance tank & steps constructed using quadlock ICF.

By constructing the swimming pool balance tank using ICF, we ensure that the balance tank has the same level of insulation as the rest of the Pool shell.

Not only can we construct the swimming pool walls out of quad lock, we can also use the system to form custom swimming pool steps. By constructing the steps out of ICF it enables us to pass fittings through. Inlets, lights and massage jets can be added to make a feature out of the steps and a great place for bathers to sit and relax.

 

Swimming pool wall bracing.

Pool wall bracingThis is the third update for the underground basement swimming pool which is being constructed in Wimbledon, London. The quadlock swimming pool wall have now been finished with all the associated reinforcing steelwork secured.

Once the Quad lock ICF wall has been has been constructed, aluminum strong backs are fixed to the wall and then braced to the pool slab. This is to ensure there is no movement when the concrete is poured into the wall cavity.

All the pool shell fittings, associated pipe runs and wall conduits are also installed at this time. Skimmer boxes, low level suctions, vacuum points and underwater lights are easily mounted in the quadlock wall using a hot wire gun and core drills.

At the shallow end of the pool a shuttered cave lid is built and braced to house the automatic slatted pool cover which will be hidden behind a false wall.

New Basement Pool Project, London: Slab Installation

Reinforced concrete slab designed to withstand the force of a large volume of water. The following day, construction of the pool shell can begin. It doesn’t take long before the shape of the final product emerges.

Pool Slab Poured, Romsey


We have just started a new project near Romsey, Hampshire. We are constructing an ICF pool inside the existing liner pool shell. The Shell, however, cannot be relied on structurally. Therefore we are treating this project as a new build, requiring a reinforced concrete base for the Quad-Lock structure.
