How do you remove a swimming pool?

Removing a Swimming PoolThe pool removal link talks about 3 ways to remove a swimming pool and gives you a cost breakdown so you can estimate how much it'll cost to remove your pool

I'm facing this problem now, with the city authorities after me to take care of it (with less than 28 days notice!) The pool, an inground gunite kidney-shaped beauty heaved out of the ground shortly after we bought the house. It seems it will need a drainage pipe and/or (??) get broken down the bottom, get filled with dirt and the upended side either broken up (more money) or, which I like, turned into a stone fence. Inside will be a garden area. Good luck. Just be sure to break it up at the bottom. I heard of one guy who didn't do this and he had a swamp in his backyard for two years before going back at it again.

Check with your local government to see if you need a permit and inspection when you do this.

How fast does swimming pool water evaporate?

It depends on whether the pool is considered "enclosed" inside a pool house or not. The assumption in such case is that the pool house prevents "outside" air circulation which enables the humidity inside that "house" to be maintained at a high level which minimizes evaporation. It goes without saying then that if you keep the doors to your pool house open then you loose much of the evaporative benefit of having the pool enclosed. In any case, high ambient outside air temperature will increase the pool evaporation rate but an enclosure should slow it down. Pool covers can also decrease evaporation rate. More input from FAQ Farmers: * Go to Arizona edu. There you will see a contour map of the U.S. providing annual evaporation rates in inches of loss per year. Find the rate for your area. Divide the rate by 365 to get the daily rate in inches of loss per day. * If you are concerned of a leak place a bucket of water on the steps of the pool and fill it so that the level equals the pool(u might have to weigh the bucket down with a rock or something) check the level the next day to see if they both evaporated the same.

Which is better steel swimming pool walls or polymer walls?

It depends where you are building in the world. Steel is ready available every where but has the diadvantage of rusting over time if water gets to it. This can be slowed by painting with an industrial coating. I have seen steel walls in the ground after 25 years and all is good. It is relatively easy to repair. Steel is cheaper than polymer but polymer is a whole lot lighter and easier to work with and does not corride at all.

In the USA the polymer wall is a formed product and is very good. In Australia there is not much available in polymer but Albatross Pools in Melbourne do a great steel walled pool and have been for over 30 years.

I would go with what ever is available and work within your budget. Both systems are extremely easy pools to construct and easy and much cheaper to renovate when required in the future.

What is a mason and what do they do?

Masons construct buildings from "masonry." There are three kinds--brick masons work in brick, block masons in block and stone masons in stone. Laying brick is very similar to laying block, but it's different enough that a lot of masons will lay either brick or block, but not both. Most masons are men, but women are entering the field.

Some of the skills a mason needs:

blueprint reading

estimating the number of "masonry units" and quantity of mortar needed for the job

laying out corners and walls

mixing mortar

driving forklifts, telehandlers and trucks

building walls from masonry

cleaning up the worksite

safety

There are three ways a mason can learn his or her trade. Many masons are "second generation" masons--their fathers or other relatives were masons and trained them. Masons' unions have apprenticeship programs, in which you work under the supervision of master masons. Also,bang a boo community colleges have programs in masonry.

If you like to work outside and enjoy hard, heavy work, masonry is a fulfilling occupation.

Why swimming pool warmer than room?

I would like to answer your question, but first I think you need to understand my background. We only sell to, and service commercial pools, most of which are indoor pools. We tell our customers to run the air temperature 1-2 degrees warmer than the pool water temperature. If your pool caters to casual swimmers you should run the pool temperature between 84-86 degree's. 83 is too cold and is like getting a cold steak at a fancy restaurant. Thus the air temp should be 85 to 88 degrees. By running the air temp just over the water temp you cut down on evaporation. Evaporation accounts for about 50% of the heat loss in a pool.

How do you remove mud from the swimming pool?

To remove mud from a smimming pool is a very delicate process . There are many variables , and it can be a dangerous experience .

To prepare yourself ,

  • Purchase a pool-vacuum thing . They're kind of expensive , so it may be a good idea to get a job . (and , if you get a cheap one that requires you to actually get in the pool and move the stick around on the bottom of the pool , it may be a wise idea to invest in a swimming suit or an anti bio-hazard full body suit . Your choice)
  • Sit in your corner , contemplating the value of life . These may be your last hours , so do all those things you always wanted to do , skydiving , dropkicking your mother in law's head so it flies off two miles into the sky , run into the forest waiting for it to come down , catch it with a lacross net and sew it back on her body for an open casket funeral , etc .

Now , you are fully equipped . Whip out your pool vacuum thing and smoke a cigarette with your bathing suit on , just to feel like a badass .

  • Now , you must enter the pool , with the vacuum . If you're cleaning the pool , that probably means your getting it ready for the summer , which means it's early spring . Inch your way in to the water until you feel like your insides are about to freeze over . Then run out , grab a cup of coffee , warm your feet by a fireplace , and repeat .
  • Now , you're in the pool . Take your vacuum , turn it on , and drag the nozzle of the vacuum across the pool and back , in a horizontal manner , east and west . Start from the shallow end , and work your way into the deep . Once you are finished, drag the vacuum back up to the shallow end , drag it out of the pool , and stand by your newly cleaned pool , smoking a cigarette . Just to feel like a badass .

And now your pool is squeaky clean , ready for summer use .

What is a swimming pool skimmer?

A device that pulls in the surface water of a pool. It uses the surface tension of the water to pull in the leaves, buds, etc. that get blown into or fall into the pool in through a small basket before it goes to the pump. There are several methods of skimming swimming pools

(1) The most widely used is the static skimmer this is installed int most private (backyard) pools. These depend on maintaining the water lever of the pool to operate properly and have a limited effect using the surface tension of the water to attract floating debris. (2) A more effective pool skimmer is the floating swimming pools skimmer, this type of skimmer connects into the vacuum plate over the leaf basket in the static skimmer unit via a hose like one connects a pool vacuum. The advantage with this type of skimmer is that it always skims at optimum performance because it moves up and down with the water It has a very fine fast moving skim that has a far wider ranging effect on the surface tension of the water as well as being able to be place in a strategic position in the pool. (3) wet wall or overflow This method is the best way to skim a pool, the pool is built in such a way that it overflows acros one or more walls into a collection point or balance tank from where it is cleaned and pumped back into the pool most public pools work along these lines. It is more costly to set up which is why it is not seen in private pools very often.

What is a zero depth swimming pool?

A zero-depth swimming pool, also called a beach entry swimming pool, is a swimming pool having an edge or entry that gradually slopes from the deck into the water, becoming deeper with each step, in the manner of a natural beach. As there are no stairs or ladders to navigate, this type of entry assists older people, young children and people with accessibility problems where gradual entry is useful.

Who makes the best swimming pool acid?

You know acid is pretty much acid. However there are different concentrations of dry acid. Look for something 88-100% active ingredient. 100% would be the most efficient. This is very safe to handle but cannot be effectively used to lower the Total Alkalinity. The other option is Muriatic Acid or a product call Aqua Magic. Muriatic Acid is hazardous to handle so use gloves and goggles. The Aqua Magic is safer to handle but still use gloves and goggles. This form of acid is more cost effective and can be used to lower the Total Alkalinity if necessary.
