Cliff side infinity pool

Brookforge pool engineers recently helped complete a swimming pool plant room installation for a cliff edge pool in Salcombe.

The pool was built and tiled by a local pool company and Brookforge took over to install all the pool shell fittings and install/test/commission the highly automated pool plant room.

Working directly for the owner; our engineer worked long hours with several late nights to get this highly automated swimming pool plant room up and running within 6 working days.

Installing swimming pool balance tank

Lifting balance tank into position

Lifting balance tank into position

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.

Commissioning Outdoor Overflow Pool

Outdoor overflow swimming pool

Testing Hidden Slatted CoverLuxury Slot Overflow PoolAn outdoor overflow pool is in the final stages of commissioning with the testing and calibrating of its thermal slatted cover.

Down on the south coast of England this pool was designed to be built using the Quadlock ICF system. Using an ICF system means the pool is highly insulated and the addition of a thermal slatted cover keeps heat losses to the minimum.

The features of this Outdoor Overflow Pool

This pool benefitted from a hidden slotted overflow system, where an overflow channel is fitted below a 30mm slot between the coping and surround tile. The tiles are supported on a stainless steel mesh preventing larger debris from entering the overflow system. The overflow water is channeled back to a balance tank which is then pumped back to the plantroom via a multicyclone pre-filter to remove any smaller yet visible debris. As the outdoor overflow pool is highly insulated on the floor and walls, a thermal slatted cover was installed within a hidden cave in the pool wall.
