What summer wouldn’t be perfect without going for a swim? Swimming, whether recreation or sports, one would generally say yes to this kind of activity in a river, beach, inflatables, or pools. But what would you do if your swimming pool was damaged? The usual method for repairing damaged or malfunctioning swimming pools is to drain the pool for an extended period. After that, they will proceed with the repair and wait hours for the pool to be filled again.
RONS, however, does not recommend this. For example, a swimming pool filled with water keeps the concrete tank stable. And when it is drained, it may become unstable, resulting in other problems such as; destabilizing the tank’s structural integrity, tiles can break and leave razor-sharp edges, posing a severe health and safety hazard. And apart from it, it will be more costly to drain the swimming pool.
RONS suggests a few things to keep in mind when it comes to draining a pool.
· Water disposal costs
Draining the pool is a costly exercise. A proper water disposal is required and you can’t just go down the nearest drain to dispose the water.
The pool may break loose and float like a boat if the water in the pool is removed because of the weight of the water that presses down on the swimming pool tank. In addition, if this process is done, your pool will deteriorate.
· Drying Out
The tiles and grout in a pool will dry out if it is emptied. This can cause the tile bond to shrink, causing the tiles to separate.
When a pool is drained, the temperature of the water changes. Once the change in the temperature occurs, tiles might expand when they are heated and contract when they are cooled, which will result in debonding. Therefore, this procedure typically yields extra expense and, at most, a loss of revenue for business establishments.
