POOL PROJECT AND PLANNING
In addition to the static requirements, the coating material to be made is also important in determining the reinforced concrete section. If the studies are done by taking these issues into consideration while preparing the details in the first phase of the project, the problems to be encountered in the later stages will be minimized. In other words, it is recommended to contact Serapool and consult with the technical office to ensure the perfect harmony of special porcelain handles and anti-slip with reinforced concrete side section.
The slope to be given in the cross-section is very important for the proper flooding and cleaning of the pool water. Accordingly, the 5% slope between the pool edge and the overflow channel will ensure that the water will float smoothly, thus collecting the dirt accumulated on the surface. Another 2% slope is made in the opposite direction on the other side of the overflow channel. The purpose of this inclination is to prevent the contaminated water in the walking area from entering the pool water. Another issue to be reminded here is that the handle and non-slip fixing is done by experts and experts to ensure that the water can float evenly across the pool.
Otherwise, the water will not be able to bear equally as the pool will not be able to be both, and water in some areas can not be cleaned sufficiently.
During the excavation, when the blockage is laid out, it should not be forgotten that the drainage line around the pool should be removed from the outside.
All hydraulic connections, discharge manholes, pipes, strainers, lighting armature buckets and all necessary concrete passages should be installed when the floor and curtains of the pool are pouring. A dilatation joint around the pool is often necessary when avoiding structural inserts (dilatations) in the pool. With the water filled pool, dilatation is necessary since the static working of the corridors and terraces, which are often on the ground, is different. One of the important issues to be considered is that these structural joints should never be covered with material. These joints must be sealed with materials such as elastic silicone.
In the concrete pouring stage in the pools in terms of water insulation to be left cold joint, in case of cold joints water retaining tape and so on. precautions should be taken. If it is necessary to fix the surface with plaster and screed after the concrete casting stage, the plaster should be prepared with the additive if possible and the thickness should not exceed 8-15 mm. Larger correction concrete thicknesses may cause breakage of the concrete surface.
Accuracy of pool dimensions is very important in reinforced concrete stage. Especially in competition pools (Olympic swimming pool, etc. ), there is a need for control and approval by the swimming federation.
After the waterproofing is done to the pool surface, water is filled into the pool and expected to control the water tightness and to prevent any possible water loss before the coating material is made. The pool needs to wait 15 days. However, this period should not be less than one week.
Since Serapool produces porcelain based coating materials, the products must be adhered by chemical adhesives. For this purpose, it is recommended to use a flexible or epoxy adhesive to provide frost and water resistance. These materials should be used according to the manufacturer's instructions.
POOL COVERING / POOL FINISHING
It is recommended to use internal and convex special joining parts instead of joining the pool floor and wall to facilitate cleaning during use and for hygiene. Porcelain products with special cross-section, arranged at the edge of swimming pools, are classified as handles. This material shows excellent chemical, physical and mechanical properties with a special production and cooking. First, the handles and the non-slip parts of the pool should be placed individually in the desired form and adjusted until the desired slopes are obtained. This slope should be equal to each side of the pool and this should be ensured via a nivo. These checks should be carried out in the company of experts. By maintaining a 5 mm joint between the non-slip and the handles, the products should be adhered to the smoothness of the parts of the handles coming into the pool.
It should not be forgotten that a successful application process does not depend solely on the quality of the material. How and by whom the process is performed is as important as the quality of the material.
After the adhesive is completely dry, the joint gaps between the materials are completely emptied and filled with a flexible or epoxy based joint sealant. Normal grouting material should never be used to prevent water, air and other environmental factors. After the application, the cleaning process must be done quickly and carefully. If the cleaning process is not done carefully or if it is done late, there is no possibility of cleaning the residues on the materials.
It is recommended to use a plastic cover to avoid splashes from construction work and to protect the floor area after finishing the coating process.
After the finishing of the pool material laying process around the iron cutting etc. transactions should not be made. Even if it is not certain at the moment, the damages of the iron burrs on the materials are observed after a certain period of time.
The pool water however; Construction, mechanical and electrical installations should be completed and the soil fertilized in the garden should be filled after finishing.
