Here is the way Cosmo Pools Gauteng ensures your quality Fibreglass Pool in Johannesburg and Pretoria is installed:
The Cosmo Pools Gauteng 7 Step Installation Process
1. Using Crushed/Chipped Stone Backfill Material
Backfill refers to the material used to refill an excavated hole, and it is typically used to strengthen and support a structure’s foundation while also promoting better water drainage.
They use backfill material – specifically stone, which is placed under the pool and around the outside of the pool shell after it is set in the excavated hole. Using clean, crushed stone backfill is one of the ways to ensure long-term success of a fiberglass pool installation.
Sand is the traditional material used in the industry, and it works well in areas with pure sandy soils. However, sand liquifies when it becomes saturated with water, making the use of backfill material a more secure option.
2. Using a Hard Pipe Instead of Flexible Pipe
Cosmo Pools makes use of a hard pipe instead of a flexible pipe when installing your pool as the flexible pipe is not rated for underground use and it does not flex and bend with the contours of the pool.This process requires more effort to install but we believe, and you will see, it is worth the value added to our customer’s swimming experience.
3. Using Plumbing Straps to Secure Plumbing to the Pool Shell
One of the major causes of pool plumbing leaks is movement. When pipes shift, this sets in motion a chain reaction that puts undue stress on the pipe, plumbing connections, and the attached components of the pool such as return jets, skimmers, and drains.
Cosmo Pools Gauteng secures the plumbing by fastening the pipes to the pool shell using a strap system. This ensures no stress is placed on any component of the plumbing system preventing any movement related poll leaks.
4. Fusing the Fiberglass Pool Shell and Patio Together
The joining of the patio and the pool shell has always been a major concern, a problem we’ve fixed with the development of a River Rod. The River Rod is a 12-inch-long composite rod that we install into the top of the pool shell. It becomes encased in the concrete bond beam that we pour around the perimeter of the pool. This mechanism is used to fuse the fibreglass pool shell and patio together. The effect of which prevents shifting, settlement,or movement of any kind which could result in structural failure.
5. Using Stone Encased Plumbing to Prevent Plumbing Settlement
Cosmo Pools wants to secure your swimming pool with long-term plumbing success. They do this by using stone backfill to encase the plumbing, which prevents movement or settlement.
6. Using a 12 inch Thick Concrete Bond Beam Around Perimeter of Pool
To stabilise the pool shell, all inground fibreglass pools require some concrete to be poured around their perimeter. This concrete bond beam is poured extra thick and flows under the lip of the fiberglass pool shell and encases the Rhino-Rod. When this concrete “bites” around the Rhino-Rod and the lip of the pool, it secures everything into place, ensuring the pool and patio will be structurally secure for many years to come.
7. Using Sump Pipe for Monitoring/Removing Ground Water
Maintaining the upkeep of your fibreglass swimming pool means that it will eventually need to be drained. A long term solution for this is the use of a sump pipe which will allow you to inspect and remove any ground water around the outside of the pool shell to prevent damage.
Getting a swimming pool is a lifelong investment and you want to make sure that you give yourself the time to do due diligence with a swimming pool manufacturer that will enhance the look and feel of your space.
