Before you make a pool, you need toDetermine his location in his summer residence. The pool is an artificial reservoir, which on hot days will delight you with the coolness of its water, will become an excellent place for rest, both adult members of your family, and for children. The choice of the site is a very important moment. Since it is necessary to take into account both the size of the pool, and the illumination of the territory by natural sun rays, and the possibility to arrange summer furniture around the pool.
Choosing a place for the pool, do not forget to take into accounttype of its design, because the pools are skeleton and foundation pit. In turn, the frame pools are divided into those that are completely located on the surface of the earth and those that are partially located on the surface. Frame pools in comparison with the foundation pit have several advantages:
- Ease of maintenance.
- Possibility of moving the pool to any part of the site.
- Easy installation on site.
But the cost of frame pools is an order of magnitude higher, so many summer residents prefer to equip on the site of pierced analogs, which are much cheaper.
Construction of a frame pool in the country
Most of the pool in the country is aconcrete-metal construction, which looks luxurious, but its cost is not always acceptable for the townspeople. Therefore, experts recommend making a frame pool of wood and aluminum or galvanized sheet metal. Before you make a swimming pool with your own hands, you need to stock up boards and pine beams, from which the lower and upper straps are made. Intermediate layer is made of thick boards, which, like the beams can be dismantled for the winter, when the pool no one will use. Pay attention that the construction must be given additional rigidity - for this, from thick boards it is necessary to make bracings.
In order that the pool does not leak, it is necessary tothe process of its manufacture to use sealants - the good in the building store you can buy sealants for any type of work and any manufacturer. In order for the tree to acquire water-repellent properties, use diesel oil. Replacement of water in such a design can be carried out easily, if the bottom of the pool to fix the tap. When connecting to the tap of a flexible hose, all the water that was used in the pool can be used for watering the garden. This type of pool is also good because it can harmoniously fit into the style of the landscape.
Construction of an excavated basin
The most labor-intensive in construction ispinned process. By the way, such a pool will be durable and will cost inexpensively. But before you make a swimming pool in the country, you need to dig a pit, the size of which will be proportional to the size of the plot. Of course, in a small suburban area, to build a huge pool will not succeed, and it will look, at least, ridiculous in the overall concept of landscape design. When choosing a site for construction, pay attention to the pool it was convenient to connect the water, because buckets you are not going to fill the structure. In addition, if you live all the time at the dacha in the summer season, then the pool will have to be filled almost daily.
For a stationary pool it is necessary to digThe pit, considering that the depth of the pool should be at least one and a half meters. In this case, all roots of plants are removed, because if they are available, it will be difficult to lay waterproofing. After the pit is dug, it is necessary to well tamp down its bottom. In the central part of the bottom it is necessary to excavate another pit, 50 cm deep and 40 cm in diameter. It must be covered with gravel, so that its level is slightly below ground level. Now the whole surface is covered with sand, 20 cm thick. Then a layer of waterproofing is laid - this is a usual polyethylene film, which is sold in construction stores. When laying the waterproofing, it is necessary to put the film over the edges of the pool for 50 cm.
If you look at how to make a pool on video, thenyou can see that it is necessary to approach the drainage equipment quite seriously. A lot of water is placed in the pool, but it should not go away involuntarily, so when equipping the drainage pipe in places where it comes into contact with the film, a good seal must be performed. Arrange the pipe slightly above the sand layer, be sure to equip it with a filter - use a rubber ring and nylon fabric.
Using a ring, attach a piece of cloth, and yourThe drain pipe will never be clogged. All the garbage that enters the pool is removed after draining the water. However, in some suburban areas the soil does not possess good draining properties, therefore it is recommended to pour water from the pool partially, but daily, on such dachas. You can pump out the water with a pump, then you will not need to equip the drain pipe. In general, everything depends on the requirements and wishes of the owner of the villa.
After the base of the pool is completed,it is necessary to begin to finish the construction - the pool walls can be laid out with blue tiles. The pool will look beautiful if its bottom is strewn with river sand - a 10-centimeter layer of sand will be more than enough. In order to create the illusion of a beach in a holiday village, fill the area surrounding the pool with the same sand. To make it convenient to use the pool, you must provide a ladder.
Good luck in building!
