The main reason for this is lack of funds or time. But those of us who have, even a small, but suburban area, can make a mini pool to decorate the landscape of the summer cottage with our own hands. The only thing left to do is choose the pool that you want.
Having a pool at a summer cottage, even if it is small, is the dream of any summer resident.
There are several types of different pools that differ in their miniature size.
Among them, you can most often find the following types:
The middle of such pools is lined with polyvinyl chloride film, which is 1.5 to 2 mm thick. The seasonal pools can accommodate a maximum of 2 people. They are easy to build and easy to maintain. But the disadvantages include the fact that they have a short service life.
Inside, such a pool is lined with four layers of polyvinyl chloride film. They have many advantages, among which we note a long service life (up to 16 years), can have various shapes and depths up to 2-2.5 m. Among the huge number of advantages, there is also a significant disadvantage - the impossibility of dismantling and installing in another place ..
Small-sized pools, which are most often made in the country, can be of various shapes:
This type of structure combines the properties of a rectangular and circular shape. So, the rounded corners provide resistance to pressure, the depth does not exceed 1.5 meters, and in such a pool you can not only cool off on a hot summer day, but also swim comfortably.
In addition to the forms presented above, mini-pools for a summer cottage made of plastic can be in the form of a polygon, figure eight, and so on. The choice of form depends only on the wishes and size of the site.
Pools are also distinguished by the type of water circulation:
Mostly they are used in summer cottages with a large area.
But how to make a mini-pool for a summer residence with your own hands? Different types of pools may require individual construction technology. For example, let's consider the features of the construction of brick and frame pools, since it is these types of structures that are used for home construction by jack of all trades. You can do this by watching the video tutorial.
After you have chosen the shape and type of the pool, you should prepare all the tools and materials that you will need for work:
These are the main materials that will be required when building a stationary pool in the country.
The construction process consists of the following steps:
When installing the walls, you should already have a ready-made formwork. To do this, use boards, the thickness of which will not exceed 0.
25 m. The formwork should be mounted so that the width of the wall is 10 cm.
Please note that when performing the described additional space should be left for installing the filter and draining the water. Inside the formwork, the cavity should be filled with pre-prepared concrete. It should dry out for about two weeks.
After that, the formwork must be removed and the installation of waterproofing can begin.
Now you can start designing a mini-pool for a summer residence. You can use various materials for this purpose, for example, a tile that can be laid out on the bottom as well as on the walls.
This type of pool is chosen by summer residents for construction with their own hands, and quite often. To build a brick pool with your own hands, you will need the following materials and accessories:
During the construction of this pool, it will be necessary to use a certain type of concrete, namely hydraulic concrete. Its distinctive feature is that it contains a hydrophobic additive.
First, you need to decide on the location of the future pool. At this place, dig a pit, ideally it should be 15 * 20 m 2 .
The boundaries of the pit can be distinguished using wooden pegs and a rope stretched over them.
Fill the bottom with a layer of sand, it should be about 0.3 m thick.Now you can start creating a pit and drainage ditch, at the bottom of which you will need to fill a layer of rubble or gravel. The ditch should be connected to the pool with a pipe.
Along the perimeter of the pit, reinforcement should be installed, there should be a distance of approximately 0.3-0.35 m between the rods. When all the rods are installed, they should be tied together with a special wire.
When creating the formwork, you can take boards with a thickness of up to 2.
5 cm or lumber. It is mounted at a distance of 0.15-0.18 m from the soil. The inside of the formwork should be filled with hydro-concrete.
After that, it leaves everything to dry for 35-40 days. After the expiration of the period, the formwork can be removed.
For brickwork, the pool wall will need to be brought to the correct height. And at the end of the wall we finish with a tile, for laying which you will also need to use hydro-concrete.
If you want to create a mini heated pool at the dacha, then this is a good idea, since you can swim in it any time.
Although the air temperature will not always please with high rates, if necessary, you can swim at any time. So, what is the peculiarity of such structures?
For the construction of such pools, certain equipment is used:
When a certain temperature is reached, the water in the heat exchanger is only maintained at the required level.
In this case, the water is heated as it passes through the collector from solar energy, which is converted into electrical energy. This is the safest and most environmentally friendly way to heat water.
Despite the advantage in the form of high efficiency, there is a big drawback - for installation, you will need to contact certain organizations and obtain permission for installation.
When choosing a particular type of equipment for heating water in a mini pool in the country, a huge number of factors should be taken into account: the power and type of the electrical network that is in the summer cottage, the dimensions of the pool, the planned temperature level to which you want to heat the water, etc.
Proper care should be taken to prolong the life of the equipment. For example, you should constantly disassemble it and remove the plaque from the internal elements, which are formed due to direct contact with water.
It will take you a lot of time and effort, but your efforts will not be wasted - you can swim and swim at any time convenient for you.
