Who wants to have a swimming pool, which is deeper than 120 centimeters in which it was – lowered into the ground – at least half. In this case, a concrete floor slab makes sense, regardless of whether a brick built pool or a steel wall pool is situated.
DIY steel wall pool
At the edge of the ten centimeters thick bottom plate rails are installed and threaded the prefabricated steel walls. The ends of the steel walls are connected to plug rails. Floor space and profile rail on the floor should be covered with fabric, then line the pool with a pool slide. Simply invert the film end on the water’s edge and fasten with clamping rails, folding in the film to the pool edge streaking toward. Finally, should backfill the pool enclosure with concrete handyman. Now it says: march water.
Walls pool itself
Who wants to build its own swimming pool, must first of all dig: It applies to dig the pit. Then, the bottom plate’s turn, since this has to take on local conditions into consideration and is the basis for the subsequent dip, less experienced DIYers should rather be an expert to work.
Of course, the bottom plate can be self-concreted
Thus the water remains clear and free of germs later, some technique is needed. Therefore first suitable pipes must be laid in the excavated pit. In this example, flow, pump and filter are connected. To use come with most DIYers PVC pipes that are glued or screwed with matching fittings. Usually the pipes are attached to the steel reinforcement Matt Ender bottom plate and then poured with concrete.
Who is the rebar directly into the wet concrete, saves later drill the annoying and take.
Now it goes to the side walls. These walls can be, for example, with scarf stones. Scarf stones have on one side a notch for the reinforcing steel, which belongs to the top. The iron bars come to any scarf stone row. Because the scarf stones are filled with concrete, they must not be glued together.
Before the scarf stones are filled but, still, the technology should be built, that is, for example, water inlet, drain, skimmer and lighting.
Once this has occurred, the scarf stones, and possibly also a brick staircase are filled with concrete and plastered directly after filling. It should be used a water resistant plaster. Who wants to concreting the pool border, should this boarding carefully and also pour.
A swimming pool requires a insulation. For insulation, for example, be glued. Subsequently, the interior walls are plastered. This home improvement should pay attention to smooth walls, every bump distinguished else in the pool slide from.
