Liner Swimming Pools Installation Guide for Pool Renovations & Liner Replacements
So-Soft Insulation finish:
The Swimming pool liner is laid directly onto Thermapool insulation. So-Soft is only advisable for domestic pools using pre-tailored liners. So-Soft gives the swimming pool a softer carpet feel, but you maybe able to see joints in the insulation or where the fixings are.
Total thickness 75mm
Insulation and render finish:
This gives the insulation a solid uniformed hard finish recommended for schools or for on-site lined swimming pools.
Total thickness 80mm
Bonding is only required if the structure of the swimming pool is not sound enough to take a mechanical screw fixing, bonding materials are extra.
By using a chamfered wedge shaped insulation board for the top of the swimming pool; this allows you to use the existing coping stones and liner lock without the need for any modification to them.
When insulating around existing fittings like inlets, lights, sumps, drains and vacuum points, the preferable method is to extend the fitting so that they are flush with the new insulated finish, alternatively we can provide chamfered insulation panels.
Radius corners should be insulated using the Thermapool bendy boards.
Remove the old swimming pool liner.
Start at the top of the swimming pool wall below the liner lock with the insulation wedge, drill and hammer the fixings through the insulation boards into the swimming pool structure, these joints should be slightly staggered.
The wall insulation is taken down to the floor. The floor insulation should butt up against the wall insulation.
Fill the fixing holes with the Thermapool Insulation Render, once dry install new liner.
If a rendered finish is required Thermapool Insulation Render and mesh can be applied to the insulation to give a hard uniform surface finish once the render has cured, install the new liner.
