The house with a private pool—it is excellent. Indeed, swimming is not just a pastime, but also a very useful physical exercise for a man. But we just want to warn—if you`ve really decided to build a swimming pool, the ideal variant is a collaboration with engineers and architects, as they can give useful advice concerning this matter, so as not to disrupt the design of your house, as well as provide the necessary microclimate. Moreover, the first thing you should decide is where you want to see the pool: do you prefer indoor or outdoor variant in the fresh air? Of course, it is a matter of taste, but it should be noted that the majority of people still place them outside the house, i.e. near the building, for example on the homestead land.
If the pool is located in the building
For building a swimming pool inside the territory of your house, the most appropriate place is the ground floor or basement, since arranging the pool on the upper floors is strictly forbidden, as the consequences can be very undesirable. At best, everything you can afford on the upper floor—a font basin or a small sauna.
If to choose the basement for the location, here you should remember of engineering communications, for example, the availability of inflow exhaust ventilation. By the way, the swimming pool, located inside the house, is much easier to take care of, and you can also use it all the year round, regardless of the weather, what, in fact, it is good at.
If the pool is located on the homestead land
Arranging the pool outside the building certainly has a number of advantages, the main of them is that being in it is accompanied by the more active rest, as swimming takes place in the open air, closer to nature. Also, such pool perfectly complements various parties with friends, conducted in the house. However, there are also downsides. For example, swimming in the outdoor pool depends on the weather, in spite of the production of the “all-weather” pools, which while raining or high winds are covered by special for this case awning. Moreover, such pool is more susceptible to pollution by leaves and other litter, i.e., it is more difficult to control its purity than the swimming pool, located inside the house. Saying nothing about the possibility of freezing in the winter—to avoid this you should also hold protective measures.
Choosing the model of the pool
So, the place is defined. Now you need to decide on the model of the pool, namely the shape and the depth. At the next stage, one should proceed with the most important thing—to decide on the type, filtration, and the pool finish. As for types, there are three of them: stationary, portable and inflatable. This choice is made depending on the type of your construction, as well as on the size of the dwelling. Of course, stationary pools are the most durable and reliable, though, they require considerable preparation. Typically, the basic material of which they are made is hydraulic concrete, and tile is used for covering (if desired, other material may be used). Regarding size and shape—everything depends on the available area and your personal imagination. To install the pool it is recommended to involve only the professionals, who, by the way, can also give valuable advice about the design. But usually such pools are equipped with everything needed for diving, as well as they house a lot of people. Additional features may also be added, such as hydromassage or other health functions. Such pools are also safe from deformation, unlike other less stable types. Certainly, in terms of price the stationary type of pool is the most expensive one.
As for the other two types—they are much easier to install, they have smaller dimensions and are not so multifunctional. Here everything depends on the purpose of building a swimming pool. If it is focused on children, the variant of an inflatable basin will be quite suitable, and it can be easily assembled and disassembled.
Demountable type of pool is a little more difficult to handle with than the inflatable one, but it also can house more people.
More information about the filtration system
There are two different types of pools—overflow and skimmer, and the choice depends on its shape. For a classic rectangular variant of the pool, the skimmer filtration system is most suitable. The skimmer is a device that removes the upper dirty layer of water, after that it is cleaned and disinfected. Refilling with already purified water is made through the wall openings. The difference of the overflow basins is that the water edge is in them at the same level with the ledge, while the water is poured into the side gutters, that is the result of displacing by clear water, coming from the bottom of the pool.
In view of everything above, a well-designed project can be done only by a professional who will take into account everything required, including the complexity of the communications supply, as well as he will help you to choose the construction. After all, let`s admit, that the premature pool repair is an absolutely undesirable thing. And it is usually achieved due to the break of airtightness, for example, because of poor-quality construction materials, resulting in leakage of the basin.
