6 How Swimming Pools Are Built?

How Swimming Pools Are Built?

Posted on December 13, 2011 by

Today we’re going to build a school swimming pool! Let’s begin!

The construction site.


Reinforcing, concreting… several months of hard work.

6 months later, a new building appears.

There are three pools in the building, one for juniors and one for seniors.

And a paddling pool for little kids.

There are all kinds of dressing rooms and shower rooms for boys and girls in the building.

Blue for boys and yellow for girls.

Now, let’s see what lies behind all that. These are compensating tanks designed to lighten the water piping load.

Quartz sand filters of different sizes for water filtering.

Ultraviolet lamps for killing microbes.

This machine adds reagents into the water which finish off the microbes, make the water softer and cause decomposition of harmless admixes.

Through this pipe, water runs into the sewage. It is equipped with special devices which prevent the powerful water flow from damaging neighboring sewers.

Water temperature in each pool, pH level, chlorine amount and 20 other characteristics are printed on the screen of this device.

This button turns on a hydro-massage.

They hope to open the pool for children by the New Year. It’s going to be a great present!

There are other systems in the building but water supply and water filtering systems are the heart of each pool.

Here’s the school.

    just nice to see a bit of how everyday stuff we take for granted is built. also with so much negative stuff coming from russia, this blog is a good reminder of the small but good things too.

      No, I am very familiar with pool industry. This pool is built very well, has large filters to clean the water in addition to an Ultraviolet anti-microbial system. I see two items that are of concern however. The first, is the use of cast iron pipe. This is a very poor choice for pool water, pool water has electrolysis which corrodes iron quickly creating leaks. The second item is earth ground wire at pool pumps! Very important to earth ground all pool pump motors.

        Me too.
        Where you see ductile iron pipes?
        The only one i see is drainage pipes that can be made of ductile iron.
        I see some grounding wires, probably all groundings can’t be seen.

        First picture:
        Air ducts shoud be epoxy coated inside and out.
        Only Zink protection is not enough.
        Reason is, as you know, clorine environment .

    Looks like a pool I’d love to swim in, but the commute from Florida would be a killer!!
