    New pool in the Netherlands

    Finally, the build of our long wished pool has started
    Last friday the builders started digging the hole in the ground. We were afraid of high levels of groundwater, but now that we are finished it looks very good.
    There won't be any activity until tommorow, due to weekend and national holidays.

    Specs for the pool:
    8x4x1.5 meter (48 m3 water)
    Normal sandfilter with pump
    13 kW heatpump (we don't have gas here)
    Salt electrolyses

    The way of building is different then builds in USA. Overhere there are roughly 3 types of in ground builds : preformed polyester pool, steel wall pool (oval) or architectonic build.
    We will be building the last type. First dig the hol, then make a concrete foundation. Build walls with Polystyreen building blocks and fill them with concrete. After that it's just a matter of placing the liner and you're done.
    Tommorow we will be doing the foundation, and start withplacing new power lines from the house to the pumpstation.

    Thanks

    Today was the day of concrete. The day started with rain, but didn't make more water than the groundwater allready was.
    The rest of the dat was with a lot of sun, until the moment the concrete had to be poured. Luckily everything went OK.

    Thanks

    Has been a while, but in the meantime : the pool is finished!

    I have a few more timelapse movies:

    Pooring the concrete floor:

    Plumbing:

    A lost day. During the leveling of the concrete floor, it started raining very hard. We had no other option then to remove all the allready applied material and build a tent:

    Re: New pool in the Netherlands

    On month later and we are done for 95% of the entire garden upgrade

    The pool, offcourse, didn't change but the surrounding wasn't finished yet.
    Here some pics of our pool and garden.







    The table is custom made, and the tabletop is made out of 2 tiles we had in the garden before the build. Eacht tile is 1 square meter and weighs 80 kilos.

    Todo : add some extra hardbuttons in pumpstation to overrule current setting, make some sort of screens to put between the posts of the porch, so we don't get blinded by direct sunlight or get wet when it rains, add some extra grid on the traingle, we ran out during the works, and most of all : clean up all the leftover tiles.

    Re: New pool in the Netherlands

    Upgraded my pool with 24 square meter solar heaters





    The biggest black rectangle is my house, the black rectangle on the left is the sitting area with the poolhouse. The solar heaters are placed on the roof of that.
    Not much sun since I installed, but with just a bit of direct sun (no clouds) the difference between water in and out gets up to 1.5 degrees celcius (pump on full speed).
    Now, let there be sun!
