Swimming Pool Types and Swimming Pool Construction Costs
Swimming gets more recognition day by day. It is also a sport in modern Olympics. Considering these, more and more semi-olympic and olympic swimming pools are getting constructed all around the world. The most important feature of olympic swimming pools is that they have ten lanes. When 8 swimmers swim in the pool at once, the outermost lanes are left empty. Those empty lanes help the waves created by swimmers to get absorbed, which helps the swimmers to swim more easily.
Types of Swimming Pools
In the context of sports, there are two types of swimming pools; olympic swimming pool and semi-olympic swimming pool. Both have different features and are used in different sports events. The features of the pools should be in accordance with the international standards so as to be considered as olympic or semi-olympic pools. Those features are;
- Olympic Swimming Pools: Olympic swimming pools should be 50 meters long, 25 meters wide and 2-3 meters deep. The swimming pool is divided into 10 lanes, each of which is 2.5 meters wide. The temperature of the water in the pool should be 25–28 °C (77–82 °F). A 2-meters deep olympic pool requires 2.500 liters of water.
- Semi-Olympic Swimming Pools: Semi-Olympic swimming pools are half the olympic pools’ size. The length of a semi-olympic swimming pool should be 25 meters, and the width should be 12.5 meters. A semi-olympic pool should have 5 lanes, each lane being 2.5 meters wide. Depth should be at least two meters and the water temperature requirements are the same with an olympic swimming pool.
Swimming Pools in the United States of America
In the United States of America, swimming pools are very common. As the country is quite big and wealthy, there are olympic and semi-olympic swimming pools almost everywhere. Considering this fact, it is not surprising that the United States has won the most medals in olympic swimming in the international olympics. Anyone can sign up for an olympic swimming pool and use it easily as long as they are trained enough by a trainer to swim in an olympic swimming pool as it is quite long.
Olympic Swimming Pool Installation
Olympic swimming pool installation (swimming pool construction) takes almost three months to complete. It is a job that should be carried out professionally as any error in the process can cause difficulties in the usage of the pool.
The construction process starts with the decision of the pool’s size. Will it be an olympic swimming pool or a semi-olympic swimming pool? After deciding that, the excavation starts considering the type and size of the pool. After the excavation, the pool should be framed with a steel frame. Then, the pool is shaped with concrete considering the infrastructure of the pool. The tiles of the pool are placed and other elements of the pool (like decks) are installed. After adding lighting, ladders, rope floats, etc. and filling the pool, it is completed.
However, the services we provide is not limited to the construction of the pool. We build tribunes, locker rooms, shower and WC areas as well. Also, we can include an office and cafeteria section too. So as to use the pool in cold weather too, we build a structure around the pool that has the sandwich panel coating.
All of the installation and construction steps above go for both olympic and semi-olympic swimming pools.
Swimming Pool Maintenance
To maintain your swimming pool as long as possible and make it a safe place for the swimmers, you have to get it checked regularly. The most important thing in this context is to check the chemistry of the water in the pool. As microorganisms can reproduce very easily in water, you need to use disinfectants regularly. However, as overuse of some chemicals can be harmful to people, you need to check the water two times a week in hot seasons and once a week in cold seasons.
- You should get the pH level of the water checked regularly. It should not be more than 8.0, otherwise the chlorine will not get activated.
- Get the infrastructure (filters, skimmer baskets, etc.) checked regularly so as to avoid poor circulation or clogging which may end up polluting the water.
- Lastly, you need to replace whatever is broken immediately to prevent unfortunate events and further expenditures.
