Considering a swimming pool this year but aren’t sure what the different pool bottom descriptions mean? There are a few standard bottoms to choose from, here is a list of those common pool bottoms: Standard, Wedge, Sports, Play, Flat Bottom, and Coved Flat Bottom.
Perhaps you are in the process of measuring your swimming pool, have come across the corners, and you're not sure how to measure them. Or perhaps you're getting ready to measure your swimming pool and just want to research how to do it. Either way, this short guide is about how to properly measure the corners and determine the corner radius of your inground swimming pool.
I have been asked this question many times over the years, as some online dealers offer freeform pools with bracing only on the reverse radius and not on the radius. This will reduce the cost of and average pool kit by a few hundred dollars, however as a leading dealer of inground swimming pools kits, the risk isn't worth the savings. At what point does removing braces affect the structural integrity of a pool? There are many problems you could run into by not installing bracing at each joint on a freeform pool. First, I am not aware of any manufacturer, engineer or building code enforcement that would approve this design. So you could run into permit issues during the building process. Another problem is that you do substantially sacrifice the pool's structural integrity which could potentially cause serious damage resulting in thousands of dollars of damage and the possibility of bodily harm.
Main drains and skimmers are used to help filter the water in your swimming pool. The two main drains, if you have them, should be located in the deepest section of your swimming pool about three feet apart. Skimmers are located on the swimming pool wall. If you have a prevailing wind in your area, you will want at least one skimmer on a wall opposite from the prevailing wind.
It is the time of year people are closing their pools. When you have a safety cover you should always inspect your hardware and replace any damaged or missing parts. Royal Swimming Pools is glad to be able to offer replacement parts for your safety cover.
Royal Swimming Pools offers a service where you can ship your existing safety cover to the manufacturer. There is a $95.00 template fee charged, however they will use your old safety cover as a template for the new safety cover. You will still receive all new hardware for your safety cover also.
