About 15-20 years, then they begin falling off. They can be re-attached initially, but will continue falling off over the years.
I have a swimming pool and is heated it has just been replaced with copper pipe I am worried about the chlorine water going through copper pipe and into the pool should i be worried about a reaction?
The only negative reaction you might have is from pool water being unbalanced. When the pH is low the water is corrosive and may cause damage to copper pipes. There are no "re…actions" with chlorine.
Yes, 711 cement should do it.
I need an assistance for the piping system for 4.5x9.0 m rectangular overflow swimming pool and balancing tank.
Yes because every child should be able to learn how to swim for their own safety.
Schools should have swimming pools because they can learn new things like CPR and how to swim, they can express themselves by having new hobbies, and can stay healthy by havin…g a new sport to participate in.
About 2.6 million dollars as there is sold bed rock to remove and the blasting will cost several hundred thousand dollars then there is the EPA and environmental impact studie…s and noise abatement and having to remove the trees that are housing endangered birds and Then installing Schedule 80 PVC piping with a vortex preventer so youngsters will not be sucked into the drain and considering. Ans 2 It's hard to say without a lot more information - (but it's definitely NOT 2.6 million ! ). You are simply replacing two pipes, usually 2" PVC for a number of feet. I've done many repairs like this for less than $1,000 .
yes, just don't use too much I would not recommend using copper sulphate in a pool. It is an algaecide but it stains pools and is what causes hair to turn green. There are be…tter algaecides available. It is not a sanitizer and is not a substitute for chlorine or bromine.
It is very unusual to have to drain a swimming pool. the water in a pool can be used for years. even it it seems absolutely filthy as a result of neglect it is often a simple …mater to get the water clear again. However if the pool is drained special care should be taken that ground water does not cause the pool to float out of the ground, as this will mean the end of it. Additional Notes: You should not drain a pool unless you have a very specific reason to do so, and/or you are doing it with the assistance of a pool professional. A fiberglass pool with no water in it is like a giant bathtub, and if the water pressure in the ground is more than the force keeping the pool in the ground, you can have what is known as a "pop out". This is very expensive problem to have to address. The same goes for a gunite pool. The gunite pools are usually equipped with a hydrostatic valve who's job is to pop open if the ground water pressure is more than the water in the pool. Again, providing this is working properly, you should be fine. In the case of performing an acid wash on a gunite pool, or when we are doing a remarcite or repebble job, our crews will also drill holes in the bottom of the gunite pool to allow any ground water to come through the holes while work is being performed. A vinyl liner pool is the least expensive to fix if you "accidentally drain the pool" or if you have problems. The liner depends on water to keep it set properly in the bottom of the pool. If you drain a liner pool, the liner can shift and cause wrinkles or bubbles to get trapped under the liner. Is this a major problem? Not really, the pool should still be able to function and hold water. It may not be pretty or aesthetically pleasing. If you have continual water problems under the liner, you may need to address the drainage or add a sump pump system to help handle the ground water. In a worst case scenerio, if you need to redo a liner you are talking thousands of dollars versus the case of a fiberglass or gunite problem which would more likely be tens of thousands.
Any age. Just make sure the dog has a life jacket that FITS him/her. I have a friend who has a weiner dog, her dog is only a couple years old. So just make sure it has a life …jacket. Or if your dog is a big German Shepherd or Great Dane, make sure your dog can swim. If your dog is too big for a life jacket and can't swim. Sorry.
Assuming we are not talking about a vinyl pool. The PVC strip above the tile, below the coping is there to form a seal. It's porpous is to keep water from seeping behind the b…ond beam and into the ground beneath the deck. Over time it will get brittle and break. It can only be replaced by removing the coping. You can repair it by trimming it back and replace it with a silicone caulk, or "Dec-O-Seal" (or similar)
Yes, It gives people a chance to express their inner swimming. Those who love swimming should swim and those who don't have swimming pool should be able to swim at school. Tho…se who dislike swimming should not have to swim.
Replace the existing coping with a horizontal aluminum liner receiver track by either Cardinal or Cinderella. These tracks are very small in height so you can run either your… concrete or wood/composite deck over them. See the HM-1 or HM-2 at http://Coping.CinderellaInc.com Purchase it at: www.poolpartsandsupplies.com and look under "INGROUND POOLS" and then subheading "ALUMINUM LINER TRACK" or "ALUMINUM LINER TRACK BY CARDINAL" http://www.poolpartsandsupplies.com/sectionsxx.mv OR GO TO www.libertypool.com http://www.libertypool.com/xq/asp/Section.In%2DGround+Pools/qx/Section_Headings.htm Yes, but if you use aluminum track be sure to ground each section or it will oxdize. PVC would be better..
Assuming it is 15mm. Buy 2 15mm couplers (compression, push fit, pre-soldered or end feed) and a length of 15mm copper pipe. Chop the copper pipe that needs replacing and conn…ect as necessary. If you need any more help just ask. Ans 2 - If you're not familiar working with copper pipe, then it's much easier to get a length of PEX and two 'Sharkbite' or similar push fittings. This generally gives you more flexibilty and allows coverage over areas of the copper pipe that look faulty ( greenish spots) This will cost about the same but is an easier and more reliable repair for the amateur.
It all depends on what they are going to do in the pool. If it is just recreational swimming the just swim trunks. If you are actually swimming competitively, the maybe jammer…s or a speedo.
Why should you not replace a section of galvanized iron pipe with copper pipe when doing plumbing repairs?
Because you will then get a 'galvanic reaction'.
