  1. After the excavation, according to the measures of the pool depth is compacted and leveled the bottom (floor) with gravel.
  2. Build the ceramic brick  wall, which will show the outline of the future pool.
  3. Fitting a double metal mesh and steel bars that form a perimeter containment belt.
  4. Fitting of accessories such as skimmers, access ports, drain and underwater spotlights.
  5. Concrete spray “GUNITE” via wet concrete in several layers, pumped at high pressure and with a thickness of the walls 15cm. and 20 cm. the bottom, the speed this process allows finishing on the same day. That makes that the structure of the pool hardens in one piece.
  6. Fitting the piping for skimmers, hoover and bottom drain.
  7. Repairing of the mould for the coronation.
  8. Tiling the pool walls and floor with the chosen mosaic colour and grout.

Swimming Pool cost

How much does it cost to build a swimming pool?Swimming Pool Cost

There are two types of swimming pools – the above and the in-ground varieties. For the purpose of this discussion, we will look at the costs associated with the installation of in-ground modern swimming pools.

Is there the in-ground pools a DIY project?

  • While some people insist that an experienced home owner could feasibly build the pool on their own, generally it is advisable to pay a professional to tackle the project. Additionally, the professional pools will usually  come with a ten year warranty which translates to a huge amount of financial non-commitment for a very long-term feature.

Cost breakout:

Typical costs and materials necessary to professionally install swimming pools include:

  • Above Ground – sold as kits or by professional pool companies, these will require some site preparation that could include the need to level the area and provide access to electrical service. Remember, all swimming pools will need at least a pump to ensure water is circulated and cleaned, and these are usually powered by electricity. The costs of above ground pools have already been addressed, and most will come with pumpsfilter systems, and ladders; or
  • In-Ground – when pools are built as in-ground shapes the costs will automatically increase due strictly to the fact that site preparation is expansive and materials are significant too. Most pools begin with the liner, and they can be made from vinyl or fiberglass. The vinyl is the least expensive with a standard cost of roughly  Read the rest of this entry »

Swimming pool Problems / Cause / Solutions

It is very difficult to make one definite diagnosis when faced with symptoms of swimming pool problems about the water. You should use all the evidence when considering what to do (e.g. test results) and go with the one you think is most likely.

swimming pool problems

The water’s pH is a measure of its total acid-alkalinity balance — the relative proportion of acids and alkalis in the water. Simply put, water that is either too acidic or too alkaline will cause undesirable chemical reactions.

If the water is too acidic, it will corrode metal equipment, cause etching on the surface materials, and cause skin irritation. If the water is too alkaline, it can cause scaling on the pool surface, and plumbing equipment, and can cloud the water. Additionally, both high acidity, and high alkalinity alters the effectiveness of the chlorine. The chlorine won’t destroy pathogens as well, if the water is too alkaline, and it will dissipate much more quickly if the water is too acidic. On the pH scale, zero indicates extreme acidity, 14 indicates extreme alkalinity, and 7 indicates a neutral state. The recommended pH-range for a swimming pool is between 7.2 and 7.8.

To raise or lower pH, acids or alkalis need to be added to the water. For example, adding sodium carbonate (soda ash) or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) will generally raise the pH, and adding hydrochloric acid (approx. 30% solution) or sodium bisulphate will lower the pH.

Fibre Glass Vs Concrete

fiber vs concrete

When making a decision about which type of backyard pool is better – Fibre Glass vs Concrete, there are several things to consider.

If the pool will be used by young children or primarily by adults, the options change.
If a pool is to be placed in a locale where its use will be seasonal or if year long use is an option, longevity becomes important.
Whether fibreglass or concrete, the choice of pool materials should be carefully made.

The debate: Fibre Glass Vs Concrete

Manufacturers and installers of concrete pools will try to convince you that their product is better.
Fibreglass pool companies will do the same. The truth is that no one’s pool fits all. The secret to an informed choice, lies in a thorough examination of the pros and cons of both types of pool while keeping your own needs and circumstances in mind.  Read the rest of this entry »

Top 10 Mistakes People Make When Building a Swimming Pool

If you are considering building a swimming pool, you have probably heard the horror stories. Before you start wading through volumes of manuals, and have dozens of builders scheduled to come and give you a free estimate for your swimming pool construction, read the following ten tips about contracting a constructor to build a swimming pool at your home. Heeding this simple advice could save you a great deal of aggravation, not to mention money, in the long run.

Top Ten Mistakes People Make When Contracting a Constructor To Build a Swimming Pool:

  1. Shopping like you are buying a car.

    Swimming pools are custom construction projects and are built by many individual trades and pool contractors with different standards. All pools are not built the same, unlike a car which is manufactured in a factory under controlled conditions. With a swimming pool much of what you do not see will impact the cost of pool ownership.

  2. Not asking enough questions.

    Do not assume every builder is going to give you an education about constructing a pool or is capable of giving you one, for that matter. The more you know and understand about swimming pool construction the better buyer you will ultimately be. This helps you and your pool contractor. Do your homework. Your resources are endless, so use them!

  3. Paralysis by analysis.

    This is when someone gets 10-15 or more estimates for swimming pool construction and then can’t make a decision because they have become so confused. Do your due diligence and get 3 or 4 estimates from reputable swimming pool companies. Then make your decision and go with it. Read the rest of this entry »

You notice that your pool is losing water. Now what?

There are 4 possible reasons why you are losing water:

pool losing water

  1. Your filter may be losing water through the backwash hose due to a warped gasket in your multi-port. Replace the gasket in your multi-port.
  2. The pipe for your main drain may have cracked. Jump into the pool and plug up the main drain.
  3. A suction or return pipe may be cracked. This is BAD! Read below and contact a professional to have the lines pressure tested.
  4. There may be a crack in the pool wall or a leak behind the light. This is BAD! Read below and  Read the rest of this entry »

Swimming pool renovation

pool renovation

is usually more involved and complex than building the same swimming pool from scratch.

A thorough knowledge of pool installation processes and proper understanding of filtration systems is necessary to even comprehend the scope of work required for a seemingly minor swimming pool revation project.

We have been involved in many pool renovation projects and these can be put into two categories:

  1. The more popular revation involves updated the look and feel of the pool, and is typical of with renovation of older properties that already have a pool installed. Things to bear in mind are the existing finishes, pipe routes for old pool plumbing and electrical installation both in and around pool.In a majority of cases, the filtration and heating system is as old as the pool itself and needs to be updated as well, considering that the design criteria for pools have changed a lot in the last 30 years. But in some cases where the filtration had undergone a midlife update, and has been done correctly, it can be left alone. This is usually a good opportunity to add modern technology components like automatic pool covers and Ozone / UV disinfection etc.
  2. The other type of revation is the addition of specific equipment or features to an existing running pool. This may be to upgrade the pool to bring it up to certain regulations, as is the case with several commercial complexes, or to generally improve the performance of an otherwise running system. Read the rest of this entry »
