Hill top swimming pool shell construction begins

The beauty of using Quadlock ICF for swimming pool shell construction is it’s very easy to get to site no matter how difficult the location. On-top of a rather large hill, on a slab constructed by groundwork’s team a week earlier, the basic pool shell flies up within a matter of days.

Infinity Overflow Pool in Sand Banks

Infinity Overflow PoolThe construction of an infinity overflow pool has been completed down on the south coast in Bournemouth.

The beach side pool has spectacular views across pool harbor and was part of a new build luxury development in Sand Banks.    

The Infinity pool also benefited from a Binder Water turbine which creates a wide natural river current to swim against with out any associated splashing.

To maintain the water temperature over night the pool has an automated motorized slatted cover which appears from behind a false wall along the pool steps. The water circulation is controlled via Besgo valves to ensure that when the slatted cover was closed the water stops overflowing the infinity edge and prevent further heat losses.

Installing swimming pool balance tank

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.
