swimming pool area and layout area
With a choice of area of construction and its depth you have defined yourself.We will give you only a recommendation.The more people at a time to rest, the more need the pool, but too much construction requires strong investments not only in construction but also in nursing.Does it make sense to occupy a large area of land for a recreation area?The best option would be the construction of an area of 16 square meters.meters and a depth in the range of 180 cm.
Proceed to layout a construction site.To do this, you will need stakes and rope.The boundaries of the site should be 50 cm longer projected size of the pool.If there is a place, prepare the site for beach chair, umbrella and barbecue.
removal of fertile layer is scattered across the site.In the preparation of the pit will be a lot of soil.It is better to take out off-site, or fill low spots.Basically it is clay, which can be useful in the construction of outbuildings.
walls of the pit does exactly.The bottom is best done with a slight slope, and the level of occurrence of below 30 cm than the planned depth of the pool.
drain hole and reinforcement bowl
sure Construct drainage hole depth greater than the height of the walls of the pool.Pit connect the drain pipe to the pool.From the bowl, set the reservoir valve.When the need to drain the water to wash the pool, the valve opens.Empty bowl wash, close the valve again and fill with clean water.
Whatever structure the pool you choose, the bottom of the pit should be paved with a layer of sand 30 cm.To tamp pad, use a thick bar.
to prepare a waterproofing layer of bitumen roofing.The price of the material is low, and the roofing material is different practicality and reliability.When you have finished work on the waterproofing, start laying the stones of small size.On the stones lay reinforcing bars or special Cover the reinforcing mesh.
If stacked bars, the distance between them should not be more than 30 cm. For fixing use the wire.
Formwork and concreting of bowls
from the walls of the pit dug 15 cm into the back off and set the formwork made of wooden boards.Inside the casing lay reinforcing mesh.The walls of the pit and the formwork can close the waterproof film.
comes the crucial moment - pouring concrete.Job laborious and requires physical strength, accuracy and slowness.If you have a concrete mixer, things go a lot faster.Construction of the pool with his hands does not mean that all the work you have to do without the help of family or friends.Together work faster and more fun.

Recreation area can also arrange different.The ground covered with sand, remind you of the seashore.Ceramic tiles also looks good and is very practical.Immediately determine where it will be located a barbecue.
carcass type of pool
you do not want to engage in concreting and prefer to set the frame in the area pool.This type of pool can be made of wood on the inside lining of tin or aluminum sheets.
you need pine lumber for the construction of the frame studs.Between the top and bottom of the frame, apply a thick board.To obtain a strong structure, stable and rigid enough bracing set of sturdy planks.
frame pools after the end of the warm season easily dismantled.At the bottom of the bowl mounted hose valve.If necessary, the water is drained through a hose and wash basin.Water can be used for watering plants.
To increase the stability of the timber to the aqueous medium used to handle special funds.During the work on the construction of the frame of the reservoir use sealant.You can buy a conventional polyethylene film.
Installation frame construction you do not have to deal with excavation and disturb the fertile soil of the site.
