Everyone who has a private house, summer cottage or country cottage, at least once thought about the possibility of installation on the territory of the pool. Indeed, in the summer heat, both adults and small children are so pleased to plunge into clean, cool, fresh water.

Owners of country houses with sufficient space, and people who are just designing the construction of a large cottage, can afford to install an indoor pool, which will be available for recreation all year round.

Let’s try to figure out how best to equip this type of entertainment, build a pool on the site, or simply install an inflatable structure, what materials to choose for this, how to care for it, we will try to discuss all the nuances of choice.

Brief content of the article:

Where to begin?

Arrangement of the pool at their summer cottage always begins with the choice of its type, volume, colors, shape, placement.

There are several types of pools, the most common are:

  • inflatable;
  • frame;
  • concrete;
  • plastic.

Inflatable pool

An inflatable structure is the most economical option, however, in terms of comfort and reliability, it differs little from more expensive varieties. Having chosen and prepared the place where you would like to place the pool, you will need to inflate it with a special pump and then fill it with water of the desired temperature.

After use, with the help of a special hole, the water is drained, the pool is washed from dust and packed until the next use. This view is an ideal country pool, upon arrival it is installed, when leaving home it is removed and easily transported.

The range of inflatable pools is quite wide, they differ not only in color and shape, but also in their size: from small ones, for very tiny children, to large-sized structures, where all family members can fit without any problems.

Frame pool

The frame pool is more reliable than the inflatable one, it cannot be pierced or pierced. This design consists of a solid, waterproof base and strong, strong side rails. Such a structure is quite simple in installation and installation, resistant to temperature extremes.

If you want to install a concrete pool in a country house, then you will need to contact qualified craftsmen who specialize in such work. This design will be much more expensive than the previous two.

Firstly, it will be necessary to create a drawing of the pool project, having studied the composition of the soil on which the installation is planned, to accurately calculate the dimensions of the structure, the degree of slope of the earth, etc. All these measures are taken to prevent the collapse of the walls of the pool.

Secondly, it will be necessary to dig a pit with an accuracy of centimeters and then pour a concrete bowl, allocate holes for drain and filling pipes.

The main advantages of such a structure are the possibility of using additional systems, for example, connecting hydromassage, lighting under water, creating artificial currents, fountains, geysers, etc.

However, do not forget that such a pool is not so easy to clean, and this procedure will have to be done quite often.

plastic pool

The main advantages of plastic structures: ease of installation and installation, complete tightness and ease of operation. And the budget for installing this type will be much less than, for example, when pouring a concrete pool.

The main factors influencing the choice of one or another type will be:

  • availability of free cash;
  • the size of the yard area;
  • the immediate location of the structure, etc.

With a limited budget, it is better to install an economical option, in the form of an inflatable or plastic pool. If both the means and the size of the territory allow, then you can start pouring a concrete structure with various additional functions.

Focusing on the location of the pool, we can say that to install it in a house or an extension, you need to use a stationary bowl, for arranging it in the air, both frame and all available types are perfect. The choice is yours alone.

Decide on the place of installation

The location of the future artificial reservoir plays a big role. When choosing a site for its equipment, pay attention to:

  • the presence of green spaces on the territory;
  • soil type;
  • availability of groundwater;
  • soil slopes;
  • the proximity of water pipes;
  • prevailing wind direction in the territory;
  • lack of buildings near the future pool, etc.

You can not place the pool under or next to the trees, falling leaves and branches will certainly pollute the water, it will have to be changed very often.

It is necessary to avoid the constant location of the structure under the scorching sun, if this is not possible, it is recommended to make a canopy over any part of the pool that can protect you from overheating in the sun.

The location in the immediate vicinity of the water supply will allow you to quickly and seamlessly fill the pool with water, greatly facilitating its cleaning.

How to fill the pool yourself

Installation of an inflatable or frame version does not carry any difficulties, all actions are described in stages in the instructions for the product, so I would like to pay more attention to the arrangement of a concrete pool.

Of course, you can order such a turnkey pool from professionals if you have enough free finances, but if you don’t have enough money, or if you have a strong desire to do everything yourself, carefully familiarize yourself with the main stages of the work ahead.

It all starts with the preparation of the site for the future construction. A pit is dug in the ground, its depth and width should be 30 and 60 cm more than the estimated volume of the pool, respectively. Its walls are carefully compacted, the bottom is made perfectly flat, the existing irregularities are covered with sand.

After preparing the pit, the laying of thermal insulation begins. It can be produced with foam, mineral wool and other raw materials similar in characteristics to these.

Next, a five-centimeter layer of concrete is laid, which will ensure the safety of the future structure. After that, a reinforcement structure is created.

Upon completion of these actions, the main concreting of the pit begins, first its bottom and walls are poured 20 cm, then they are completely leveled using plywood formwork.

Do not forget about the pipes for supplying and draining water; during pouring with concrete, they are mounted in the walls. After the concrete has hardened, the pipe responsible for the drain is removed.

After hardening, the bottom and walls of the pool are tiled to give an aesthetic appearance, it is preferable to use dark shades of the slab, this will contribute to the rapid heating of the water from the sun.

The installation of a concrete structure is quite laborious, to create it you will need the services of an excavator, the help of third parties, it is very difficult to cope with such a large amount of work alone, so evaluate your strength and free time in advance.

A pool of clean, refreshing water on your property is a dream that is so easy to come true. There are various types of them on the market, for every taste and budget. Therefore, do not be afraid of difficulties and decide to install it.
