There is an idea that a rich country house must certainly have such an attribute as a pool. However, technologies allow literally everyone to acquire their own pool and not even get attached to the area.
Inflatable rubber products became the output. Let's talk about inflatable pools and those misconceptions that are definitely not worth believing.
Inflatable pools are designed for children. It seems that the volumes of such products do not allow adults to fully dabble there. Yes, and from childhood we are familiar with something similar, which seems frivolous today for adults. But the main manufacturers produce models not only for babies, but also for adults. Family pools, where parents and children can relax, are an excellent compromise. And for those who are confused by the size of these products, there are large-sized models and even a jacuzzi.
These pools are shallow. First of all, it is worth deciding on the purposes of using this pool. It goes without saying that diving is not provided here. If the pool is needed for the games of preschoolers, then its height usually does not exceed 50-60 centimeters. For family options, the walls rise by 70 centimeters. If the pool is large and is intended for swimming, its walls can rise to a height of 1.3 meters. And the highest frame products generally have a height of up to one and a half meters.
And such a pool will be cramped. Not everyone knows that modern large-sized round pools can reach 7.5 meters in diameter. There are oval products and rectangular shapes with dimensions of 8 by 4 meters. In such giants the whole company will feel comfortable and there is definitely where to swim.
The inflatable pool can be pumped up with a car pump. This can be done, but it is better to choose a different path. The pump pressure may not match the maximum allowed in the pool. As a result, an attempt to accelerate inflation and test the strength of the product may result in wall rupture. Each model should be inflated with the pump that comes with the kit. If you use a third-party product, then you must take into account the permissible load for each model.
The inflatable pool is subject to frequent deformation. There are complaints that the sides of the inflatable pool are bent. However, if the product is installed on a flat surface, where nothing will interfere with the bottom, the problem will not arise. And large inflatable pools keep their shape with an inflatable ring. When water enters the product, the ring floats, and when a certain level is reached, the walls become even.
In the inflatable pool, you can independently adjust the water level. This approach is applicable to models with inflatable walls. Their filling can be carried out taking into account the safety of babies. But in models with high sides and a pop-up ring, a lack of water will lead to the fact that the ring does not float and the walls turn out to be curved. So in this case the liquid level is already predetermined.
The inflatable pool deflates quickly. The very phrase "inflatable pool" is associated with a fully inflatable structure with soft walls. However, only children's and family models look like this. And here it is difficult to say how often you will have to pump them up - this is purely individual. If you constantly lean on the sides, then in a couple of hours the product will need to be pumped up.
The inflatable pool is low-strength. Each model is calculated taking into account the mass of water and its pressure on the walls. The largest models with a height of more than a meter are produced on the basis of reinforced PVC, special vinyl with two and three layers of walls, as well as Kevlar. Thus, the products usually maintain the parameters declared by the manufacturer. The main threat to swimming pools is not the volume of water, but sharp objects and animal claws.
It is difficult to drain water from such pools. In the simplest models, it is enough just to pull out the plug, but in large-sized ones, hoses are already used for this purpose. The width of their section will determine the drainage speed. For example, in a pool with a volume of 5 cubic meters, the process can take from several hours to a whole day.
Water from the pool can be used to water the beds. This statement is true only for small pools, in them the water is generally clean due to constant change. And in large pools, filters and disinfecting chemicals are responsible for cleaning. Algae are prevented from appearing by algaecides. Needless to say, all this will be poisonous for plants?
Long storage will cause pool walls to stick together and become brittle. The season is over and we need to collect the pool. In order for him to look like a worker again in a few months, his prevention is necessary. After draining the water, the pool must be thoroughly rinsed with non-abrasive mild detergents and then dried. If you sprinkle the walls with starch or talc, then after wintering it will be much easier to unfold this product.
