Swimming Pool Systems
There are two different swimming pool systems to chose from.
We create an infinity, or negative edge pool using the overflow system. Water fills the pool and flows into a tough. We collect water from the trough and store it in a surge, or holding tank, before pumping it through the filter system and back into the pool.
The benefits of this system are
a. Easier to keep clean. Because the water reaches the height of the pool walls there is less chance of staining around the rim. Surface impurities are also regularly removed. We collect surface debris such as leaves in the overflow troughs.
b. The infinity edge adds a real wow factor. With no edge to one side you can easily take in the view beyond the pool.
The Skimmer System
The skimmer system draws water from the pool through slots placed a few centimeters below the top of the pool edge. We run the water through the filtration system and back into the pool.
The benefits of this system are
a. We don’t need to install surge tanks. These are large and take up a significant amount of available space.
b. Because they are enclosed on all sides they do not have the hazard of the infinity edge. It is much easier to access all areas from outside the pool.
Water Treatment Systems
There are four popular water treatment systems for swimming pools.
Chlorine is a common and cheap chemical treatment for pools. It is a disinfectant that kills bacteria and algae. We must use the correct amount. However some people complain of itchy skin bathing in chlorinated water.
Saline System (Salt water)
A popular way of keeping your swimming pool water clean is by using salt as a disinfectant. This can leave the water brackish and in fact is another way of producing chlorine.
Ozone is a very effective disinfectant. It replaces the use of chlorine and bromine which is much healthier. We use an air compressor to generate the ozone.
Mineral Ionizer System
A swimming pool ionizer cleans and sanitizes pool water by releasing positively charged copper and silver ions into the water. They destroy algae and bacteria. Ionization is a proven method for destroying unwanted bacteria and viruses. However, it is generally not as effective as chlorine.
Tiles and the decking around the pool are important features to get right.
Swimming Pool Tiles
You will have fun choosing the tiles for your pool.
They come in a variety of materials including:
- Natural rock
Best colors are blue, turquoise and ocean green. The darker tiles make the pool look deeper. They may also enhance the reflection of the house in the water.
Flooring Around The Pool
Another important choice will be the flooring around your pool. The most common materials include:
- Wooden tiles
- Rock tiles
- Artificial woods
The most important requirements are that they are hard wearing and non slip.
