New Beetle transformed into a hot tub

New Beetle transformed into a hot tub

Once again, RENOLIT ALKORPLAN was present at the Piscine Global Europe, the leading swimming pool and wellnes event, were we could witness the mots innovating tech related to pool lifestyle. At every swimming pool event, you can stumble upon the most curious things.
One of the things that caught our eye this year, was a project cretated by Plastica Pools. They successfully redesigned a Volks Wagen New Beetle into a Hot Tub, using our reinforced membrane: RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity to coat the interior and Elegance to cover the headrest.

The New Beetle drew in the crowds who were amazed to witness a fully functioning hot tub inside of the car! Plastica Pools made sure it wasn’t just for show as they even managed to replace the car engine with a pool filter to maintain the water in pristine condition. When the hot tub is functioning, our reinforced membranes assure complete watertightness and not one tiny drop of water is spilled.

To add a couple of stylish details to the design, Plastica Pools added various LED lightning to create an impressive ambiance on both the interior and the exterior of the car. In summary, It simply has all the elements of a luxury hot tub to fully relax in! We are grateful and proud that they chose to use our liners for this original and authentic project and we are amazed by the stunning end result.

How to light your swimming pool

How to light your swimming pool

Tips for lighting your pool

When the sun is high in the sky, it is very pleasant to have a refreshing dip to escape the heat. But there will also be the occasional night when the heat gets the better of us and we also feel like relaxing in the cool water of our pool. To create the perfect night-time atmosphere, it is important to have good pool lighting to add a new dimension to our home and help us enjoy our nocturnal swim.

There are several types of lighting for the perfect pool atmosphere on the market: solar lamps, fibre optic lighting, LED lights, floating lights, halogens, incandescent lights… although the current trend and most efficient option is LED lighting.

The electrical system used most frequently at the moment is fibre optic, which has the advantage of there not being any heat or electricity in the wiring and so entails no maintenance. It comes in different colours and is usually situated around the perimeter of the pool to generate a very simple yet elegant effect.

LED lighting is the most frequently used. In addition to being very efficient, hardwearing and energetically efficient, it provides atmosphere with colours that can be adapted at any time using a remote control, which means you can customise your pool even more with the colours you want.

Where can we put our pool lights?
There are several places and endless combinations for fitting lights in the pool depending on the shape and length of the same. We will generally position the main lighting at the sides, about 30/40 centimetres below the edge of the pool, focussed so that they do not shine light on the house or the more frequently used areas. The recommendation is to install one lamp for every 20 m2 of water surface.

How to reduce your pool’s electricity usage?
Whether we are building a new pool or are replacing existing bulbs, we should take energy efficiency into account to reduce our pool’s electricity usage. The technologies that currently require the least maintenance, give thousands of hours of light and are low-energy are fibre optic and LED lighting.

Safety and pool lighting
Safety is one of the most important factors to consider when installing or replacing our pool lighting. Make sure that all of the underwater lights that you are going to fit in your pool comply with Spanish standard UNE-EN 60598. This standard requires them to be made of materials that are resistant to high temperatures and are totally watertight to prevent water getting in.

Lighting: a good safety measure

Pool lighting is both aesthetic/decorative and functional as it is an excellent safety measure.
Lights in or around the water may prevent unpleasant falls into the water in addition to lighting up the garden area during the night, allowing us to see any possible intruders.

You need a RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME if you want a swimming pool that withstands everything.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME withstands everything.

As well as guaranteeing 15 years’ watertightness, the XTREME membranes come coated with a special lacquer that protect them from rubbing, bacteria, dirt, metal ions, chemicals and ultraviolet rays, keeping the colour pristine and stain-free.
The groundbreaking technology used in the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME membranes doesn’t just protect from the outside, but also protects the underside of the membrane against bacteria that can cause cracks or permanent stains in your swimming pool.
It isn’t just the right product to surpass the market’s most demanding technical requirements, it also has a line of intense, lasting colours that make sure your swimming pool stays looking stylish and doesn’t go out of fashion: Sahara, Blue Fresh, Azure, Silver, Volcano and Onyx.

Swimming pools with sand

Swimming pools with sand

Swimming Pools with sand

Discover a new concept for your swimming experience: recreate the beach in a pool.

The swimming pool field is changing. So much so that market innovations have allowed us to move away from conventionalism and create new trends that have led to new pool concepts.

Swimming pools with sand are new pools that recreate beach scenes. By nature, they are totally free and customised spaces as there are endless shapes, depths, designs and decorations that can be applied to swimming pools with sand.

Their main characteristic is the need for a large area of land to locate the pool on as the idea is to recreate a nature space in the garden that causes great visual impact and looks like a beach scene.

The space can be customised to the utmost with decorative garden items, such as stones and a variety of plants that allow us to recreate rivers and waterfalls.

One element that is common to swimming pools with sand but totally different to conventional pools is the access, which is normally via a ramp.

The ideal finish for a swimming pool with sand is from the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH range, specifically two designs:

  • Relax – with a colour similar to fine, beach sand, it is ideal for exotic atmospheres that transport you to faraway, Caribbean beaches with crystal-clear, turquoise hues.
  • Sublime – although it emulates fine travertine marble, its light tones may also give the impression of a beach atmosphere. It is the perfect lining for trendy, modern pools.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is the first reinforced membrane 3d to line swimming pools Inspired by nature

In addition to different elegant designs, TOUCH reinforced liners are distinguished by a thickness of 2mm, which makes it currently the most resistant liner on the market. But the factor that makes the TOUCH range a unique product is that each of the 6 colours incorporate a relief to simulate the different elements of nature that they represent.

In the case of the two colours we mentioned above, if we focus on touch and we feel the TOUCH Sublime liner, we will notice a rough, rocky surface that immediately reminds us of touching marble.  When we touch the TOUCH Relax liner, it will transport us to fine sand beaches due to the soft, pleasant feel on our skin.

The two models of reinforced liner are designs that combine to perfection to line sandy swimming pools and give a greenish hue to the water because of the reflection of sunlight, evoking beach scenery.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is the first reinforced membrane 3d to line swimming pools Inspired by nature

Build a sandy swimming pool and it will be a totally functional and decorative unit all year round that is unique and perfect for the whole family —in addition to being a source of well-being— because of its size.

TOUCH is the first reinforced lining with 3D relief that emulates natural features like natural rock, slate, granite or sand, and also gives a very pleasant touch sensation which unleashes your senses.

The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH harmoniously combines the pool’s aesthetics also providing total watertightness of the membrane. The TOUCH models are: Authentic, Relax, Elegance, Vanity, Sublime and Prestige.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS is a reinforced membrane with the relief and appearance of ceramic mosaic inspired by Greek mythology. Necessarily thicker than a traditional membrane in order to achieve the relief, RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS is one of the most resistant, impermeable and lasting linings on the market.
The four models take their names from 4 ancient Greek deities: Sofia, Atenea, Selene and Etna.

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN‘s five ranges have a written impermeability guarantee, making it the best reinforced membrane on the market.The main feature of the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN ranges is that they are coated with a lacquer that protects them from the sun’s rays, bacterial build-up and against scratches and grazing.

Carry out a daily test to ensure the chlorine level is 1ppm and that the pH is between 7.0-7.6.

 

If you disinfect your swimming pool with chlorine or with a salt electrolysis machine it is essential than the level of the chlorine is 1ppm and the pH level is between 7.0 and 7.6.
If you disinfect with bromide the level should be 1ppm and the pH level between 7 and 8. Excessive use of bromide can cause the liner to become brown in colour.

It is very important that the chemicals do not come int contact with the liner.

The correct way and safest way to dose chemicals into the pool water is to place the chlorine tablets into the skimmer with the pump in operation. If the product are in the form of powder, granules or liquid and you intend to add them directly to the pool.
