How to build a garden pool?
1. Flat terrain
The base is perfectly flat ground. The base for your pool, the place where you place it, must be perfectly level - it cannot be laid on a hilly surface, slope or other unevenness. This is the most important thing to consider when choosing the location of your garden pool. Make sure you take the time. Unpacking, assembling and leveling the "swimming pool" delays the beginning of your relaxation, but it is definitely worth it.
"Okay, but what's the risk of placing the pool on slightly uneven terrain?" - You have probably asked this question in your mind. For example, whether you have an expansion pool or a stand-up pool, this can have the following consequences:
If the rack pool is placed on an uneven surface, it will be damaged as the metal structure of the rack begins to bend under the weight of the pool, which is not properly balanced. With an expansion pool, this is a bit different due to its different construction - an expansion pool placed on a sloping surface fills unevenly: for example, at one end of the pool, the water level may be 20-30 cm higher than on the other side. This endangers the stability of the entire tank. You can also feel a slight bottom of the unevenness across the bottom of the pool, which can cause discomfort when using it. Remember that moving the garden pool to another location after filling it is practically impossible.
2. Place in the garden
Then another question arises: where to place the garden pool? Consider three elements when looking for answers.
First - the sun. The sunny place means fast heating of the water in the pool and at the same time also creates more pleasant entertainment. After all, you can relax by the pool and sunbathe at the same time.
Second, the trees. When users set up garden pools under or near trees, they should not be surprised later that the water is polluted quickly - it includes leaves, twigs, petals, pollen and other unwanted pollutants.
Third, security. Under no circumstances should the pool be placed under electrical cables, near poles, electrical cabinets and other energy sources - we do not even have to explain why.
In addition, it would be good if the pool was within reach of the garden hose - this will make it easier for you to fill it with water.
3. Land under the pool
And one last thing - cleaning and preparing the place to place the garden pool.
Clean the area under the pool of all stones, branches and other things. It will also be a great idea to separate the garden pool from the ground with a special pool mat to prevent abrasion and damage to the bottom of the pool.
Also, consider that the ground under the pool should be hard enough to support the weight of the water (and a garden pool full of water weighs a lot!). The largest pools are sometimes attached to a special, paved surface, such as concrete screeds or slabs. In this case, however, the pool mat will also be useful for insulating the bottom of the pool from the ground - to increase the comfort of sitting in it and slow down the cooling of the water.
And it's ready. All you can do is set up a swimming pool!
