Indoor Swimming Pool Construction
Your own Indoor Swimming Pool. It sounds fabulous, and as it should be. There is undoubtedly more demand for indoor swimming pools than ever before and with modern construction materials and new technology plus state of the art environmental control, automatic chemical dosing and heating equipment, owning an indoor swimming pool is sure to give great pleasure.
Indoor swimming pool water will probably be heated to about 85 F; this will therefore produce considerable humidity and condensation, which must be controlled. Use of a pool cover is strongly recommended together with dehumidification, air heating and re-circulating equipment. If a cover is used this may have a bearing on the shape of the swimming pool.
Technology today allows for installation of heat reclaim systems, whereby energy produced by dehumidification of the air is reused to heat the pool water or air at greatly reduced costs.
With the aid of computer technology we are able to provide our clients with accurate data regarding individual swimming pool running costs.
The pool building will normally be kept a couple of degrees warmer than the water therefore insulation should be thicker than that
specified in normal house building regulations. All doors and windows should be sealed double glazed units made from toughened safety glass as should any roof lights, or alternatively double or triple skin polycarbonate. They must be well fitted and sealed to prevent any cold drafts in the building.
You may wish to incorporate a hot tub into the pool construction; this must also be considered at the planning stage, as should changing facilities, relaxation areas or special lighting, in fact anything that may need water, electricity or plumbing.
Interior finishes are a matter of personal choice and budget. Purpose made slip resistant ceramic floor and wall tiles are durable, are easily maintained and come in a range of decorative colours and styles, these can successfully be combined with traditional brick and treated seasoned timber for a mellow soft effect.
Alternatively, waterproof carpets are also available and have been used very successfully, particularly where small children are running around, the surface being much more forgiving in the event of a trip or fall, and it does seem to help absorb sound.
We are based in Reading, Berkshire. However we quote and install throughout the counties of Hampshire, Surrey, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire also.
