If there is not a pond nearby, where you can go swimming, we recommend buying an inflatable pool - an inexpensive and quick way to cool down and have fun. Unfortunately, these products can not boast of strength. To avoid punctures and spoilage, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with how to properly install an inflatable pool at the cottage.
How to install an inflatable pool in the country - choose a place
To swim and splash in the pool gave maximum pleasure, it is important to pay attention to the selection of the site. Several factors should be considered here, namely:
- size of the pool;
- its shape;
- surface quality of the site;
- degree of illumination.
Of course, the chosen clearing should fit the dimensions of the pool in the so-called "assembled" state. In order for the water to warm up quickly, it is recommended to install an inflatable product in the sun or partial shade. At the same time, the close arrangement of trees or shrubs is fraught with the constant ingress of leaves into the water.
Preparation of a place for the pool
The chosen place needs to be prepared. It's lucky if the site is level, without any stitching and potholes or concreted. Then just put a thick veil and put the pool on top.
In another situation, you'll have to learn how to install an inflatable pool on an uneven surface. That the water in it was located without changes, the site should be leveled. After removing dry branches, roots of stones and debris, sand or clay is used for this purpose, tightly ramming to ensure a flat surface. The edges of the prepared area can be fixed with a frame from the bars.
Another option, how to install an inflatable pool, is to place it on the boards. First, you can lay a layer of sand (about 5cm) for drainage, to which then put wooden blocks 6-10 cm thick.
On top of the resulting podium area is covered with a layer of old linoleum, a coverlet, an old advertising banner or whatever is on the premises.
After preparing the site, the pool should be neatly and evenly disintegrated.
Pay attention to the drain hole, which should be on the side where you then it is more convenient to release the pool from the water. The pool is inflated with the mouth, using a manual or automatic pump.
The pool chamber should be tight and well held without wrinkling. If the height of the pool exceeds 90-100 cm, it makes sense to install a ladder on the side. By the way, they are sold in a specialized store. Now it remains to collect water with a pump or a hose.
After that you can splash in your pleasure.
