Build a steel wall pool professionally
Whether the steel wall pool are free in the garden or to be partially or completely embedded in the earth – the first planning steps are the same!
First, a completely flat and firm surface for the steel wall pool has to be created. This surface must be made of “grown” and must not consist of reclaimed ground, because the pool would decrease otherwise later. An additional ten to twenty centimeters thick concrete floor slab is indeed recommended, but not mandatory. On this or on the substrate a layer of protective fabric is then designed, which prevents the inner shell of the steel wall pools is damaged.
In conical excavation of the subsurface towards the basin center, the water depth can be increased by up to 12 cm – depending on how big is the size of the steel wall pools!
After these checks, you can start the construction of the basin. The supplied ground rails are fitted into one another and placed at the intended location. Subsequently, the steel wall of the pool is rolled out and set into the rails. Usually openings for pool accessories such as skimmers and inlets are pre-cut. This must necessarily be at the top half of the steel wall. The two wall ends are connected with plug-in profiles. Now the inner shell is attached. After smoothing wrinkles all the top rails are attached in conclusion. Now, the technology can be installed, entry and exit option attached and the steel wall pool be covered if necessary.
Basin with a height of more than 1.5m must be admitted to at least 0.5 m into the ground. In this and in the case of complete oblivion a backfilling of the steel wall pools is required. A polystyrene layer ensures sufficient thermal insulation and a layer of lean concrete keeps the pressure of the ground. For full Inge abandoned pools also a utility shaft is required!
