A swimming pool serves as a recreational center and as a body-exercising medium for the community. The possibility of physical accidents & health hazards occurring while swimming in a natural source reservoir, are avoided in a Well-built swimming pool. Therefore the prime importance shall be given to the following requirements while designing a swimming pool.
Quality of water in a pool:
The swimming pool being a public place and water being the best medium for spreading various deceases; utmost care should be taken for, maintaining the Quality of water in the pool
The essential requirements of swimming pool waters are: –
TYPES OF SWIMMING POOL
PROCEDURE FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SWIMMING POOL
The construction of swimming pool involves more civil engineering items; but because of the complexity of plumbing & electrical works related to the hydraulics, it is essential to construct a pool under the supervision of an experienced consultant.
It is equally important for the site engineer to deliver keen & timely supervision to avoid repetitive repairs.
Following are the key areas which demand keen supervision from the site Engineer.
Approved architectural & structural design of swimming pool & surrounding landscaping will lead to the sequence of activities as follows.
Finalization of following reduced levels w.r.t. Deck top as the T.B.M..
PROCEDURE FOR CONSTRUCTION :
Mark permanently DECK LEVEL as T.B.M. and then start the setting out. Accordingly execute the works in the following sequence.
Ensure the following things during tiling work strictly
Recycling of the pool water is widely practiced in swimming pools. Reuse of water is achieved by providing a filtration system. This system comprises of a pressure filter, chlorinator, chemical doser and a pumping system to recirculate the entire pool water in designed hours (Usually not more than eight hours a day). Water is sometimes areated to eliminate dissolved gases. Areation also gives a sparkling effect to the pool water.
In spite of the reuse of old water, certain fresh water will be required to be added in the pool to compensate the water lost, in evaporation, back washing of filter, surface skimming and vacuum cleaning of the pool floor. This lost water will have to be compensated almost daily by adding fresh quantity of water in the pool.
The typical plumbing layout details of swimming pool using recycling of pool water are shown in the figure.
Acceptable values of water quality parameters to be tested in swimming pool.
1 to 2 mg / L
Not more than 1/3 chlorine
7.4 to 7.6
Alkalinity using Hypo chloride
100 mg/ L
100 mg/ L
Filtration plant & room
This room is designed to accommodate the filteration plant. The room shall have proper access and ventilation. Floor level of this room is generally maintained below the bottommost level of the pool to facilitate the gravity flow of water from the pool to the filtration plant.
An Instructions Board shall be fixed at a prominent location to display the following rules and regulations.
