The best pools for sum­mer cot­tages

The most pop­u­lar are ground pools, which are installed on a spe­cial­ly pre­pared site, and sta­tion­ary ones, which are dug into the ground. Each of these types has its own advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages.

So, for exam­ple, above-ground pools are cheap­er, they are eas­i­er to assem­ble and install on their own. The site for them is enough to sim­ply clear the debris. But most of these pools are not resis­tant to frost, so they need to be removed for the win­ter. And still need to find a place to store.

Sta­tion­ary pools can be quite large. So that an adult can swim freely there. In addi­tion, almost all struc­tures dug into the ground are resis­tant to frost, so for the win­ter it is enough to cov­er them with an awning. How­ev­er, their instal­la­tion requires con­sid­er­able effort and requires the work of a pro­fes­sion­al. In addi­tion, the price for them is much high­er than for ground pools.

There are par­tial­ly dug-in mod­els and those that can either be dug into the ground or left on the ground. It is bet­ter to check with a pro­fes­sion­al about the pos­si­bil­i­ty to equip the pool at your dis­cre­tion. Oth­er­wise, it may turn out that the out­er coat­ing will not endure the cold peri­od and will no longer be usable for the next sea­son.

How to choose a pool for a summer residence

For help in choos­ing a pool for a sum­mer res­i­dence, Kom­so­mol­skaya Prav­da turned to experts — Dmit­ry Shevtsov, the founder of the POOL PREMIER com­pa­ny, and Boris Vasiliev, an expert bal­ne­ol­o­gist, a spe­cial­ist in fill­ing pools and bath­tubs at the Rap­salin com­pa­ny.

Boris Vasiliev believes that in order to pur­chase the most suit­able pool for a sum­mer res­i­dence, you need to know and take into account many impor­tant fea­tures of the site and the fam­i­ly.

  1. It is impor­tant that the pool is in the sun­ny part of the site, for accel­er­at­ed heat­ing of the water in it. At the same time, the site should be flat, and the pool should have easy access to a pos­si­ble water car­ri­er (water from a well is not always plen­ti­ful, and from a well is not always good (accord­ing to the stan­dard, water should be of drink­ing qual­i­ty). The brought water should also be checked for qual­i­ty / avail­abil­i­ty cer­tifi­cate.
  2. Speak­ing about water, it is use­ful to start with an unex­pect­ed ques­tion: where will the water (3–20 cubic meters) be drained in the fall? Well, if there is a ditch along the site, which is already filled with rain. And if not? In this case, a small­er pool is rec­om­mend­ed, which is designed for chil­dren, with a vol­ume of 2000–4000 liters. And in any case, you don’t need to drain it onto the lawn, the water wash­es out use­ful sub­stances, the plants will feel bad.
  3. The small­est and most bud­getary are inflat­able pools. They, as the name sug­gests, keep their shape due to sev­er­al inflat­able built-in ele­ments. And these ele­ments are made of durable water­proof film. But this film can eas­i­ly be pierced, even with a sharp piece of wood, or with a sharp stone at the base of the pool. The film will have to be glued, com­plete­ly drain­ing the pool. So an inex­pen­sive pur­chase can become a one-time, of lit­tle use.
  4. The basis of the frame, pre­fab­ri­cat­ed pool are strong racks, between which a water­proof fab­ric is stretched. The posts give the pool a sta­ble, per­ma­nent shape. A base should be placed under each rack (a piece of a thick board mea­sur­ing from 30 * 30 cm). The fab­ric of this pool is mul­ti-lay­ered, more durable, which makes the pool more reli­able to use. The set of a pre­fab­ri­cat­ed pool, usu­al­ly start­ing from 7,000 liters, includes a sim­ple car­tridge fil­ter, and from 10,000 liters — a lad­der.

Popular questions and answers

What types of pools are best for summer cottages?

Accord­ing to Dmit­ry Shevtsov, swim­ming pools are suit­able for giv­ing, for which min­i­mal main­te­nance is required in the off-sea­son. But it is impor­tant to under­stand that main­te­nance is nec­es­sary for any type of pool.

First of all, these are frame pools. They are of two types: tubu­lar and all-weath­er (frost-resis­tant) dig-in pools. These pools attract their cus­tomers with their price and sim­plic­i­ty.

Also, pools made of PVC mem­brane are suit­able for giv­ing. This is already a seri­ous cap­i­tal con­struc­tion, because the cost of such a pool will be twice as expen­sive as a dug-in frame one. PVC mem­brane pools require sea­son­al con­ser­va­tion, but its tech­nol­o­gy is sim­ple. The cost of installing such a pool can be com­pared to buy­ing a car­port or a shed for the yard. These are the most rec­om­mend­ed types of pools in terms of price / qual­i­ty ratio.

Anoth­er type is pools lined with mosaics or tiles. Such designs have a large num­ber of nuances regard­ing the water­proof­ing of the lin­ing sur­face, and, as a result, only spe­cial­ists in this field can do this work. They are less suit­able for sum­mer cot­tage con­struc­tion, because they must be pre­served before the first frost. The process of con­ser­va­tion of such pools requires adher­ence to a clear tech­nol­o­gy, labor costs, as well as the use of pro­fes­sion­al equip­ment. This pro­ce­dure is nec­es­sary to pre­vent pre­cip­i­ta­tion from enter­ing the pool, oth­er­wise the mois­ture will turn into ice and destroy the coat­ing.

The best types of pools, accord­ing to the choice of con­sumers, are com­pos­ite pools. These are durable struc­tures made of fiber­glass. Yes, they are in the upper price range, but their qual­i­ty and instal­la­tion off­set the cost. The only dis­ad­van­tage of this type of pools is a small selec­tion of sizes and shapes. You will need to make a choice based on the options pro­vid­ed.

Is it possible to install a pool in the country with your own hands?

Accord­ing to Dmit­ry Shevtsov, it is quite pos­si­ble. Framed tubu­lar pools are suit­able for self-assem­bly. Such a pool is assem­bled in just an hour, then it remains to fill the bowl, smooth­ing the coat­ing in the process of water enter­ing. All-weath­er frame dig-in pools are sup­ple­ment­ed with instal­la­tion instruc­tions. In short, for instal­la­tion it is nec­es­sary to dig a pit, pour a con­crete base, install the pool frame, line it with a fin­ished PVC mem­brane and fill it with water. But for the instal­la­tion of equip­ment, it is still nec­es­sary to invite spe­cial­ists.

Boris Vasiliev also believes that both types of pools can be installed inde­pen­dent­ly, but it is bet­ter to install the frame pool togeth­er (there you need to pull the cables between the racks). Instruc­tions are includ­ed with the pool.

A strict­ly hor­i­zon­tal plat­form should be pre­pared for any pool. It is rec­om­mend­ed to remove some soil, fill it with sand, lev­el the sand and spill it with water. Only a sta­ble, lev­el pool can be filled with water.

What are the catches of inexpensive pools?

Accord­ing to Dmit­ry Shevtsov, first of all, it is the terms of oper­a­tion. For exam­ple, framed tubu­lar pools are less durable than PVC mem­brane pools. Dur­ing oper­a­tion, there is a high chance of tear­ing them, since the cup pack­age is quite thin, 0.3 mm thick. In order for such a pool to serve as long as pos­si­ble, it is nec­es­sary to pre­pare in detail the area where the pool is locat­ed — the sur­face must be flat, cleared of stones and for­eign objects.

Dur­ing use, it is nec­es­sary to treat the pool care­ful­ly: adults should not push off the board with their feet while swim­ming, chil­dren should not play in the pool with sharp objects so as not to dam­age the sur­face. It is impor­tant to know that if rodents live in your coun­try house, they can gnaw through the con­struc­tion mate­r­i­al.

There is anoth­er nuance — this is the lack of a pro­fes­sion­al clean­ing sys­tem. It must be pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly, as the pack­age includes a car­tridge fil­ter, which, accord­ing to the instruc­tion man­u­al, must be changed once a week. A week­ly replace­ment of such a fil­ter for three years is equiv­a­lent to the cost of a PVC mem­brane pool.

It is nec­es­sary to install frame tubu­lar pools annu­al­ly, and at the end of the sea­son it is nec­es­sary to dis­as­sem­ble, dry the can­vas, pack and store in a dark, ven­ti­lat­ed room. This is incon­ve­nient and time con­sum­ing. To increase the life of the pool, direct sun­light should be avoid­ed due to their UV insta­bil­i­ty. It is also worth care­ful­ly approach­ing the process of main­tain­ing prop­er water qual­i­ty. The sur­face of the pool is extreme­ly afraid of exces­sive addi­tion of chlo­rine, as a result of which it will quick­ly lose its col­or and pre­sen­ta­tion.

If we con­sid­er all-sea­son instilled pools, then you need to under­stand that there is less care for them and the ser­vice life does not exceed five years, since the met­al­lized coat­ing of the bowl itself, locat­ed in the ground, cor­rodes and rots over time. The cup pack­age itself is also quite thin, if a rup­ture occurs, then the soil col­laps­es and then you will have to dig a pit again before replac­ing the pack­age.

PVC mem­brane pools have one draw­back com­pared to the first two types. This is the cost. But these pools are con­sid­ered the best in terms of price / qual­i­ty and will delight for a long time.

Accord­ing to Boris Vasilievthe main dis­ad­van­tages in sea­son­al, inex­pen­sive pools can be for­mu­lat­ed as fol­lows:

Film dam­age repair. Drain­ing the water in this case may require time and costs for a new fill­ing.

Impos­si­bil­i­ty of active games (jump­ing into it, play­ing with a ball, etc.).

Swing­ing pools can dam­age them, loss of water or even drown­ing of small chil­dren (a small pool seems safe), but even a momen­t’s dis­trac­tion can lead to tragedy).

Their pack­ing for the win­ter. Dry­ing, espe­cial­ly in bad weath­er, can take a long time. Then rolled up and placed for the win­ter in a place where the fab­ric of the pool will not be dam­aged by frost, and mois­ture will not cause mold on it. So the best place to store a sum­mer pool is a warm garage or base­ment.
