Importance of Safety in Swimming Pool Construction
Safety when building a swimming pool is a matter that requires special attention. The prospective buyer often lacks sufficient knowledge, so clarity and transparency on the part of the manufacturer is vital.
Critical Points in Construction
Pool safety is a subject that the prospective buyer knows little about, but it deserves special attention. It is really difficult for the customer to prioritize the increased amount of information he will receive during the market research process for the construction of the desired swimming pool. He will hear many and contradict each other. Different approaches and considerations even for the same product or process. However, not everyone is obliged to combine knowledge of civil, chemical and electrical engineering. And if they still combine them, they certainly do not have the experience of the specific market to avoid pitfalls and mishaps.
Tips for Safe Use and Maintenance
Therefore, on the occasion of our contact through this column, let us wish the magazine a good career in an area that definitely needed it and analyze epigrammatically the factors that affect a key issue: construction safety. The company should generally emphasize the issue of safety and hygiene without hiding critical details and half-truths. The aware and rational customer (as we believe the reader of this specialized publication is) should not be afraid of what they tell him but what they hide from him. The following is a brief analysis of the most critical points during design, construction and after its completion to which the contractor must pay special attention.
The company that will undertake the execution of the project suggests to the client the correct depths that the bottom section should follow in order for the pool to be pleasant, safe during use and not to hide any traps that may cause an accident.
The choice of the capacity of the mechanical equipment and the way of processing it must be done based on the strict specifications that apply to a public swimming pool in order to have an excellent result in terms of water quality.
The pool engine room must be a clean dry area with good ventilation and safe access for the user-maintenance. A place where all the safety specifications for the hydraulic and electrical networks must have been observed by the manufacturer.
Correct selection of lining materials in and around the pool. Anti-slip floors around the perimeter of the pool and on the built-in staircase as well as on all routes that connect the pool to the house, the outdoor shower, etc.
Therefore, by making a correct design, we avoid construction errors that are very difficult to correct afterwards
After the construction is completed, it will be time for the customer to use the pool. This is where the second stage begins where the manufacturing company must have informed the customer about the points that he must pay special attention to for the hygiene and safety of the users.
Such issues can be the correct selection of the wader or its rejection if the dimensions of the pool and the depths do not allow it.
The use of branded and certified chemical products. Here there is a big trap where the consumer considers himself to be a winner if he saves €30-50 in one season, forgetting that this is usually at the expense of his own and his family's health.
For families especially with small children there are very practical solutions for covering the pool to avoid accidents. Many consider pool covers unsightly and in bad taste. The truth is that a pool cover lying on its axis is not what a pool owner wants to see. But if one wonders about the benefits of this product, such as ensuring the safe use of the space surrounding the pool by our little explorers, one realizes that this particular cover was not made to add something aesthetic to the pool, but to play a protective role . Of course, there are also covers with a hidden winding mechanism for which provision must be made by the manufacturer.
The above are some of the sos points that one must pay attention to in the construction and operation of a swimming pool. Our purpose was to make you think positively about the correct use of the product we sell and love so much.
The buyer must be a skeptic in exile. All information coolly passes through the "suffering" of logic. Very often the best choice is the one that helped us understand and not the one that impressed us.
