A recently completed project in Worcestershire was a new build fully insulated deck level pool. It benefited from the latest energy saving technology in the automated plant-room and a remote controlled slatted thermal pool cover which is hidden away in the floor of the pool.
Working directly with the Architect from first conception meant that everything pool related could be taken into account during the pool hall design.
The final result is a contemporary and stylish pool that blend modernity with functionality.
Slatted thermal pool cover benefits
The benefits of a slatted thermal pool cover should not be underestimated; not only will it keep your pool water warm whilst you are not using it thus saving on the running costs. They also prevent water evaporation, meaning your dehumidification system will have less work to do keeping the pool hall humidity stable and thus protecting the fabric of your pool hall.
An 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 benefited 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 multi-cyclone 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.

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 motorized 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 minimize 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 minimize heat loss through the structure, thus saving potentially thousands compared to an un-insulated 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.
