How to install your swimming pool using a polystyrene block kit?

You have just purchased a polystyrene swimming pool kit which is simple and pleasant to use. Take your time and follow our explanations carefully.

The earthworks for your polystyrene swimming pool:

The structure of your pool must be placed on stabilized soil. Avoid any installation on backfilled soil less than 10 years old. Also inquire at your town hall about the administrative provisions.

A: location:

After having chosen the location of your swimming pool, position the 4 corners (with 4 wooden stakes or iron) of the interior dimensions by carefully checking the diagonals of the rectangle.

diagonale-piscine diagonale-piscine-2

Also locate your staircase if it is outside the rectangular structure: the concrete slab will be made including the dimensions of the base of the staircase.

Then determine the finished height of the basin which will be level 0. (see diagram)

fond-piscine exemple-terrassement

Bottom of the earthwork (10 to 15 cm)

A stoning : approximately 10 to 15 cm thick, made up of rounded pebbles or fragments of crushed pebbles, balsat, or even so-called “pavers” gravel. The purpose of the stonework is to equalize and homogenize the support surface of the raft creating a draining surface.

An anti-contaminant geotextile: when the bottom of the excavation is too clayey or peaty, can cover the soil and precede the installation of the stonework. It is generally made of a thin flexible membrane, most often non-woven like the permeable TERGAL fiber, or even a plastic film. We understand that this film constitutes, on the one hand, a clean working base and, on the other hand, it is anti-contaminating by the fact that it prevents the rise of clay in the stonework.

Implement also your staircase if it is outside the structure rectangle: the concrete slab will be made including the dimensions of the base of the staircase.

For a block swimming pool, it is necessary to offset the interior dimensions by 50 cm to find the exterior structure dimensions. To this must be added a working area of ​​25 cm (wall not affected by the passage of the pipes) and 50 cm for the walls receiving the parts to be sealed. It is therefore strongly recommended to make a concrete slab that covers this area.

B: The route of the excavation:

After having traced the earthworks area with plaster, it is imperative to use stakes to align the length and an exact dimension of the swimming pool in order to reposition the 4 angles at the bottom of the earthworks. See diagram.

excavation-bloc-polystyrene-2 tracage-piscine-bloc-polystyrene

C: excavation:

From level 0, you will need to add 12 cm to the height of the hole. It will therefore be necessary to dig to 1.62 m for a height of 1.50 m. Remember to also include finishing coverings (terraces, etc.). Before starting work, remember to evacuate the volume of earth extracted. Remember to keep a few m3 for later backfilling.

The bottom of the hole must be LEVEL over the entire surface.

When the earthworks are finished and you have cleaned and leveled, if necessary crushed gravel 10/14 (especially not earth); re-establish the 4 angles (reinforcement bar) using the alignment adjustments made while always checking the diagonals.

Case of damp soils: You must make a decompression well. (contact us to find out more)

D: The bottom drain:

Before positioning the welded mesh, place the bottom drain. It is connected to its pipe (direct bonding or connection + Teflon + bonding depending on the model). Be careful to protect the upper part with the holes with orange adhesive tape after stuffing the drain with paper to prevent the tape from sinking. The joint surface must be flush with the finished level of the slab. Make sure that the slab is flat around the bottom drain. We recommend that this as well as the pipe be run into the slab. Some prefer to use the lower connection so that the pipe is under the slab....


The slab  

Distripool recommends that this step be done by a qualified mason. But for those who want to do it the same. Here is a guide that will allow you to make your concrete slab according to the rules of the art. (click on the PDF logo).<


Assembly of the block structure of your polystyrene swimming pool:

Once the base is finished and dry, position the first block row, aligning them perfectly.The arrow indicated on the top of the blocks is on the exterior side of the pool Check the levels and plumbs, having taken care to cut the 4 corner stakes flush with the slab .

First align the 4 corners with whole blocks and always put whole blocks at the corners.

Position horizontally inside the block (and then in each row) a 10 mm diameter concrete iron around the entire perimeter. Overlap the junctions of 2 horizontal concrete bars by 50 cm and bind them with 2 iron ties. For the last row, put 2 irons of diameter 10 mm.

Position the 2nd row of blocks, taking care to cross them (overlap of 25 cm), which will ensure better stability of the pool before pouring concrete. If you need to cut a block (using a wood saw), carefully follow the vertical line and cut the block in the middle of the spacer.

Continue with a new row of blocks, horizontal irons up to the height of your pool. To properly fit the blocks on top of each other, after having adjusted the male and female nipples well, tap the spacers with the palm of your hand.

The vertical irons must be cut at least 3 cm below the top level of the 1st row.

There is an upper and lower cap to place on the blocks at the ends of the structure.


Assembly of parts to be sealed for the polystyrene swimming pool:

Before pouring the concrete, you must put in place your parts to be sealed if you have opted for traditional filtration.

To know the position and heights of your parts to be sealed, go to (after the products): /c32-Pieces- a-sceller-piscine

The pouring of the concrete:

1: The leveling:

It must be perfectly level because it will receive the rails hanging and your copings. It is therefore necessary to remove the crampons which are used to fit the blocks with a cutter.

1: Pouring the concrete

Type of concrete to use: C25/30 dosed at 350 Kg/m3, class S3 maximum /C25/30 XC1-XC2 D22 S3 CI 0.40.Do not use liquid concrete

It isimperativeto start with the 4 corners to a height of 1 m | ||1633MAXIMUM then reload on the perimeter by rotating in 2 rows maximum.

consigne-coulage-beton-4 consigne-coulage-beton-5

It is recommended to pour the concrete gradually. It is also recommended to float the level surface to facilitate the installation of the rails and copings.


Hydraulic connection of the parts to be sealed:

Before pouring the concrete, you must insert the parts to be sealed in the structure. the bottom drain for the base, the skimmer(s), 2 or 3 outlets screwed to the wall penetrations

The male parts to be screwed must be Teflon coated and not glued. must be stripped and then glued.

1: the skimmer:

the skimmer must be placed 50 cm from the corner Under the skimmer, screw in a 1"1/ threaded end piece. 2 to glue diam 50 mm then glue the pipe diam 50 mm into the fitting. Glue to the other end a 50 mm diameter elbow wedged into the ground. Glue the flexible pipe to the elbow. Remember to connect the overflow from your skimmer for water drainage. It is recommended to make the descents of the parts to be sealed rigid.

2: Discharge and brush socket:

Stick a 50 mm diameter tube in the wall penetration and leave exceed by 3 or 4 cm and make the descents as in the diagram below. At the end of the rigid pipe, glue the 90° diam. 50 mm elbow, then the flexible pipe.

If you wish to install a robot. overpressure, you must pull a rigid high pressure PVC line 32 mm in diameter from the broom socket to the technical room(Optional).

Installation of the hanging rail for your polystyrene swimming pool:

You must place the hanging rails around the entire perimeter in order to fix the liner. This is a 9 cm flat baguette. You must position the lip of the rail on the water side directly above the Structure and rivet the rail to the concrete part. In the corners, we put EPS polystyrene corners which stick against the wall. For this we must also put rails in the 4 corners of the pool as in the photo below.

film polyane

Place the black polyane film around the periphery of the exterior walls by fixing it to the top of the wall before backfilling. Anti-contaminant polyane (plants). It is recommended to wait at least 4 to 5 days to backfill without approaching motorized vehicles within 1.50 m. Recommended materials: gravel 6/14.

Filtration connection

Distripool offers 3 types of filtration with this type of kit: traditional sand filtration, outboard block and filter stairs. The most complicated to install is traditional filtration. We will focus on this principle.

Here is a general hydraulic diagram to understand the installation principle.Please note there are many options in this diagram

Installation video

Our manufacturer of blocks provides a general video of the assembly of our polystyrene kit swimming pools. What's better than a video to talk technical.

Special case of stairs:

Distripool offers 2 types of stairs, prefabricated stairs and polystyrene block steps.

1) The full width staircase in polystyrene block

escalier sur toute la largueur

Distripool offers 2 types of staircase, prefabricated stairs and steps in polystyrene block. Use straight blocks standard for your steps. Each of them will be 25 cm high. Depending on the height of the pool, you can make a 3-step staircase for a height of 1.25 m or 4 steps if your pool is 1.50 m high. On the other hand, be careful not to make a staircase of more than 4 steps otherwise the installation of the liner will not be possible.

Important attention: the top riser must be 30 cm for good tension of the liner with a minimum of water above the 1st step. As our blocks are 25 cm wide, you will need to cut 5 cm off the 1st step in order to adjust it to 30 cm.

Depending on the depth of the staircase you want to make, the steps can be 25 cm (width of a block). But if you want to make steps longer than 25 cm, simply pour a self-stabilizing material like sand or crushed gravel between the blocks. The step surface will be finished after filling the blocks used to make the steps with concrete. See explanation diagram below.
