As far as fixed pool is beautiful and usefulrecovery plan, just as it is complicated to maintain. The water must be constantly cleaned, filter, get rid of the garbage incident. But if the building is covered by a transparent top, as if hovering over the water pavilion construction, the maintenance becomes easier. Even those owners who have mounted an open cup, eventually being finished above the pavilions for pools with their own hands.
Pavilion constructed by the pool, the owner will receive the following "bonuses":
- The water will evaporate from the surface is less.
- Significantly reduced heat loss, and therefore, costs for heating water. In addition, it will extend the terms of the swimming season.
- The pool does not get dirty rainfall and wind to be applied dust, debris, leaves, and the owner will save on filtration and water purification chemicals (if gated Pavilion).
- Ultraviolet rays collide with the barrier andfall into the pool already refracted. So, their destructive effect on the walls and bottom will become weaker, resulting in increasing the life of pool materials.
- In the winter cold temperature under a pavilion above,than on the street, so the design does not have to be tested is too low temperatures, causing some of the materials and the system of water summing can come into disrepair.
To build a pavilion for the pool with your own hands, it is necessary to determine its structure.
If the pool is used occasionally, andrest of the time is idle, then the cheapest option is a low pavilion with a height of not more than one meter. He will fulfill the most important function - to protect the water from the sun, rain and debris. And if the owners do not plan to dive with skirting, it is sufficient to make the sliding section and through it to fall into the water.
Low pavilions convenient if pool use only in the summer season
There are also designs with about two meters high. They are for convenience mounted on the door end. Does this version of the pavilion on the principle of conventional greenhouses with metal sheets and polycarbonate sheets. You can, of course, instead of a polycarbonate to pull the plastic film, but aesthetic appearance will suffer, and the wear resistance of the coating film is weak.
High pavilions are about three meters of heightand are used not only to protect the pool, but also serve as a great sitting area for the hosts. Greenhouse climate makes it possible to equip the perimeter of the bowl flower, put chairs or rocking chairs for relaxing. But in this case much wider pavilion boundary cup sizes.
High pavilions replace traditional owners gazebo, because they have enough space to relax and warm enough even in winter
A more economical option is the pavilion,which is built around the perimeter of the bowl, speaking a dozen centimeters. It can be completely closed or semi-closed. A semi embodiment protects the cup or only one side (usually the side from which the wind is blowing), or the ends, leaving open the center or at the sides, leaving the ends open. This pavilion will not provide maximum protection, but a barrier for wind and debris will create, and the owners will have a shadow zone, where you can take shelter from the scorching sun.
Semi-closed pavilion protects only part of the basin, and it is better to mount by the wind or from the green spaces
In any height pavilion Improvescomfort system of sliding partitions. Their base is a rail system (as Commander cabinets), which sections can move and go one after another. Slide them into one end, the owners receive an awning to provide shade, and in case of rain can quickly insulated cup.
Or telescopic sliding pavilions move along the rail system and are fully cleaned with a water basin area
The choice depends on the shape of the pavilion of the bowlpool. For round bowls used domed model for rectangular - in the form of the letter "P" or a hemisphere. The most difficult - a pool of irregular shapes. create asymmetric "shelters" for them.
For round bowls of the most successful form of the pavilion is considered the dome
From an economic point of view, the creation of pavilionsIt is justified on its own, but if you have no experience, the installation of high buildings may be delayed for a couple of weeks. However, some gardeners have no choice, because to find the appropriate "roof" is not always possible for the odd-shaped bowls. So, it is necessary to buy materials and build the pavilion. Here's how it's done in a half-closed structure made of polycarbonate.
Pavilion polycarbonate going on the principle of conventional greenhouses
To cover will use polycarbonate, which is usually covered with greenhouses. A frame will make the profile pipe.
To minimize costs and simplify installation, do the design with open ends, put on the foundation of the pool or the finish and leave the opportunity to disassemble the winter.
Swimming great height is not necessary, so it is enough two-meter pavilion.
Despite the seeming ease, and polycarbonatemetal-profile have a considerable weight, so the basis for the pavilion is to be trusted. If around the pool has already been created, and a seating area with tiled floors, it can be mounted directly on it.
From the foundation of the design of the pavilion should serve another 7 cm forward, to securely hold the entire load
The rest of the owners will have to pour a foundationtwo feet thick, the width of which must act on the base frame about 7 cm apart. Concrete must be reinforced, laying-cell side of the square 20 cm.
The foundation for the pavilion should be thick and strong, because the weight of the entire structure can reach a ton or more
For the main frame requires a broad arc tube in which it will be possible to fix on the two edges of adjacent sheets of polycarbonate. Its length - 1 height (m 2) + width of the pool.
Pipes need to bend arches. It is better to entrust it to professionals and those who have welding - can be done yourself. The part of the pipe that is to arch, an incision on three sides by a circular saw, gently bend, fixing the edge in the vise, and after all the cuts weld. Welded seams zashlifovyvayut.
Fix the base to the foundation frame using bolts.
The base of the frame attach to the foundation or finishing pool with bolts
Put the arc, and locking bolts and nuts (if option is not folding - you can brew). The distance between the arcs - meter.
All arc attached to the base by means of bolts
Between the arcs fix stiffeners, alternating between the two ribs, then 3 on the flight.
Dougie take to double bolts for safety
Ready frame handle anti-corrosion agents and painted in the color you want.
Scheduled for polycarbonate sheets (color and thicknesswho choose themselves) where they will be attached to the pipe, and drill holes. They should be slightly larger than the thickness of screws, because the heat polycarbonate "plays", and must be headroom for expansion.
Sheathe ready skeleton sheets of polycarbonate. Fasten the sheets with screws, and under hats should definitely put a metal (galvanized!) Washers to close the hole.
carbonate sheets should lie down on the profiled pipe butt
Inside all the fixing points and coat with sealant compounds.
All joints and fastenings place grease sealant
The concrete substrate should be insulated on both sides of the water and sediment with the help of decorative finishing granite, tiles, etc.
Keep in mind that the more often you willdisassemble the structure, the faster it will wear out. So think about whether it makes sense to remove the pavilion before each winter. This is justified, if only in the winter hut is empty, and no one to clean off the snow from the pavilion in the event of heavy snowfall.
