Preservation of the outdoor pool in the winter: the analysis of the work technology

In conservation need all temporarilyunused facilities that you need to save during their downtime. One of these facilities is an outdoor swimming pool, which is actively operates only in the summer. Before the first autumn frosts artificial pond needs to be conserved. After all, the main danger for the construction is hidden in the ground motions, adjacent to the walls of the open pool deck. To cope with this problem allows water that is prepared in a special way and leave in the outdoor pool in the winter. Before filling the pond with water bowls made dismantling and installation of plugs. For the full range of works on the preservation of the object is called a team of professionals. If desired, and the availability of time, all the necessary operations the owner of a country house can hold their own. Let us consider the order of execution of works and the characteristics of their conduct.


First of all, we offer you to watch a video with examples of conservation work:

Draining and cleaning the pool

Before you start draining water from the pool,used in summer for swimming, it is necessary to remove the chemicals from avtohloratora (tank disinfectant dispenser device). Thereafter, the entire system is washed in the circulation mode, about 10-15 minutes. Then produce plums "year" of water from the bowl of the swimming pond.

The bottom of the pool wall and cleaned viscosesponge or plastic brush with soft bristles from dirt and deposits, while actively using detergents. When selecting cleaning agents for cleaning the bottom and walls of the bowl are guided by councils facing material manufacturer. Preference is usually given to the chemicals released by German companies. Although many Russian agents have good washing and cleaning properties.

Cleansing the bottom of the pool from contamination

Cleansing the bottom of the bowl of the outdoor swimming pool from dirt, carried out with the help of special equipment or improvised devices available

With extreme caution is necessary to clean the film coatings, which can be damaged by heavy impacts of chemicals of questionable quality.

While cleaning the bottom and walls of the swimming cuppool, do not forget about cleansing from sediments deposited metal parts which are in direct contact with water. We are talking about the stairs, handrails, lighting lamps, spotlights and other accessories used in the operation of buildings.

As with all drugs of household chemistryshould follow the well-known safety regulations. The work must be carried out in protective clothing (rubber boots, gloves, water-repellent robe with a hood). It is advisable to protect the eyes and the respiratory system through the use of special glasses and masks. It is impossible to prevent leakage of disinfectants and cleaning solutions into the environment.

Removing the removable equipment

All removable equipment during the "winterhibernation "the pool is recommended to remove and place for storage in a warm, dry place. Dismantling to be the main elements of hydraulic structures:. Filtration unit, heating system backflow device, etc. Getting to the dismantling of the filtration plant, de-energize the filter. Then the water is drained through the tap, open the lid and shift the filtrate into another container. The filter is washed thoroughly. Then poured the remains of the liquid, switching valve in the discharge mode. Further filtration unit is placed in the desired location for storage until the next summer season. Elements of the hydraulic system are not subject to dismantling, always exempt from water.

Before filling the pool with water, remove allbuilt into the design of lighting installations. At the same time clean the protective glass, the device is removed from the niche, wire, isolated, withdrawn upward and attach the board to the pool. Foam plugs close the recess, which houses the lighting, the skimmer. These plugs are placed in the nozzles, does not remain closed in the winter in the pool water. Special caps closed risers drains.

Preservation filtering system

After finishing work on cleaning the pool and dismantlinghardware, proceed to fill his bowl with water with dissolved preservative additives. As such additives are commonly used tool called "Puripul", which produces the German company "BAYROL". This drug prevents the emergence and development of unfrozen water, algae, fungi, bacteria, silt. To carry out the preservation process of the filtering system, the water level should be brought to the previous value. In accordance with the instructions supplied by the manufacturer to the filter installed on the equipment backwash mode. You can not switch the filter valve while the pump is running, as this can cause damage to the system.

After completion of the backwash filter operationtransferred to seal na10-15 mode, and then - in the normal mode (normal) filtration. In this mode, conserving water is forced through the filter system for two to three hours. After this time water from the pool partially drained. Draining ceases at the moment when the water level falls below the side nozzles 10 cm.

As part of "Puripula" appear quaternaryammonium compounds (20% less), so it is strictly metered addition of water in the basin. Size of the dose depends on the water hardness, measured in degrees of hardness (° F) or equivalent in milligrams per liter (mEq / L).

  • If the hardness is less than 3.5 mEq / L, then for every 10 cubic meters of water is added to 0.4 liters "Puripula".
  • If the water hardness comes to 5.3 mEq / L, the dose of a drug used for the preservation of water in the pool is increased up to 0.6 liters.

Before adding "Puripul" should be dilutedwater, wherein for each part of the drug should account for 5 parts water. The resulting solution is distributed evenly over the water mirror pool and mix with the bulk of the water. Efficacy of the drug depends on the water content in chlorine and algaecide. Reduced efficacy "Puripula" occurs when the chlorine concentration in water at 1 mg / l. Knowing this, it is not necessary to increase the dose of chlorine and algaecide in the water during the reopening of the pool, which is done during the spring months. After all, "Puripul" greatly facilitates the cleaning of the pool after the "hibernation".

Compensators: what it is and why they are needed?

To reduce the load of ice (frozen water)on the pool wall using expansion joints. Compensator called objects that can change its volume with increasing external pressure. In other words, these are the items that can be compressed during the expansion of water in the freezing point. By compensators include all empty plastic containers (cans, five-liter bottles of potable water, and others.) And tire pieces and foam.

Use compensators at preserving for the winter pool

The use of plastic bottles as expansion compensators water during freezing during storage outdoor pool in winter

Compensators associated with synthetic cord andplaced on the center line of the swimming pool. This plastic container is required to bury a little, using sandbags or other weights. Not recommended for use as an anchor metal objects, which can be left on the bottom of the pool traces of rust. In addition to the center of the reservoir expansion joints installed and sides. It is better to use bars of foam, which should be linked to the "garland" and place on the perimeter of the pool, stepping back from the sides of 8-10 cm.

Selection of coatings for the protection of the water table

Protection of water mirror with a specialcoverage is considered the last step in winterizing outdoor pools. This stage does not bring trouble to owners of those structures that already use coatings to protect the water in the pool in the summer from pollution and cool. However, for year-round use of suitable covering materials, only those that are able to withstand temperature extremes, as well as the severity of the snow mass.

Fabric covers for pools

Fabric cover made from tarpaulin, PVC film and other materials that can protect the body of water from rain and other pollution

Bubble covers for swimming pools

Bubble covers are low forms of thermal barrier coatings that can accumulate solar energy. Covers are suitable for protecting the pond in winter

Automatic blinds for pools

Automatic blinds for pools can not only protect the water surface from contamination, but to extend the swimming season, keeping the water temperature at a comfortable level pool

Plastic protective pavilions

Plastic pavilions include costlySpecies protection year-round outdoor swimming pools. Make data structures from aluminum profiles and rounded polycarbonate sheets that can trap heat inside the structure

Operation of stationary pools in winter

Operation Open (stationary) in the winter the pool is possible with the use of modern systems of electric heating of water in artificial reservoir

Do not cover the outdoor poolshomemade wooden shields and metal structures, resting on the side of the building. Chances damage the bowl walls and artificial reservoir housing.

When you can start re-entry?

If you fulfill all conservation proceduresPools, fixed correctly, it is possible to ensure a good winter this construction. With the advent of warm days the ice melt in the pool provide in vivo. Crushed ice is strictly prohibited, as this is likely damage to the cup structure. After the reopening of the pool and water treatment to begin operation of the reservoir in accordance with its intended use.
