We spend our lives choosing colours… the colour of our cars, the colour of our children’s T-shirts or even the colour of the walls of our homes. Our pools are no exception, and it is important to pay attention to these recommendations for choosing the colour of your reinforced liner.
Take a look at the layout of your garden, as it will help you decide the right colour for your pool.
Pools with the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced liner
RENOLIT ALKORPLAN offers you different product ranges, depending on your tastes and needs which are different from each other in terms of their colour, design or finish, but in all cases bearing in mind their high level of quality. This is the best way to decide on the colour of the reinforced liner.
Our pools serve as example of this, whether located in open surroundings, or in more enclosed settings, the design of the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced liner meets all expectations with regard to colour and appearance.
The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN colour range adapts to your home
Our catalogue has a wide range of modern, aesthetic solutions, because we know that every home and setting is different. For this reason, you should be familiar with the whole range,RENOLIT ALKORPLAN2000 and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000.
How to choose from the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN2000 and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000 range
It’s very simple; RENOLIT ALKORPLAN2000 has a range of plain colours to add elegance and uniformity to your pool, whereas RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000 includes printed models with exclusive designs. Your decision will most probably depend on the surroundings of your home and your personal tastes.
Two very different infinity pools. The result of the photo on the left is impressive, as the owners preferred the warmth of a RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000 Marble liner. The pool on the right is equally impressive, in a rural setting that evokes peace and quality of life; in this case, the chosen liner was RENOLIT ALKORPLAN2000 Light Grey.
RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000 TOUCH is inspired by nature
The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN3000 TOUCH liner has exclusive prints and 3D relief that give it a unique and extraordinary texture and appearance. It is also the strongest and most resistant liner in the market and its AUTHENTIC, RELAX, ELEGANCE, VANITY, PRESTIGE and SUBLIME, designs are inspired by nature.
You can also let your imagination run wild. In this pool, the RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 3000 TOUCH Authentic and RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 2000 Caribbean Green designs are combined.

Seismic movements or earthquakes are ones of the most important enemies of your pool.
An earthquake or seism is nothing more than a sudden or brusque tremor of the earth which can occur for many different reasons. Depending on its intensity or origin, an earthquake may cause considerable shifts in the earth’s crust, landslides, tidal waves or even volcanic activity.
Although tectonic and volcanic activities are the main causes of earthquakes, they may be caused by other factors such as an accumulation of sediments due to the detachment of rocks on mountainsides, the sinking of caverns in the event of changes occurring in the fluvial system of an area, or simply due to sudden changes in atmospheric pressure.
Swimming Pool Made with Gresite
Such phenomena generate minor events which usually fall within the category of microseisms, i.e., tremors which can only be detected by seismographs. Hundreds of events of this type are generated every day, without us realising it.
In most cases, the earthquakes or seismic movements may eventually cause damage or cracks to the pool vessel. Every year, millions of earthquakes occur in Europe, and even though they are not noticeable and nothing is said about them, their consequences are more evident than in our homes.
We’ll start this post by announcing two pieces of news, one good and the other, bad. Which one should I start with?
The bad news: all this means that in less time that you could imagine, your pool will develop cracks and all the water will run out, and it will be practically impossible to repair.
The good news: we have the solution to prevent this from happening. The reinforced membrane or reinforced RENOLIT ALKORPLAN liner is the only known covering system that can prevent the pool from losing water.
HOW THE REINFORCED MEMBRANE WORKS
The reinforced membrane is a resistant covering for pool structures that is able to act like a watertight bag or container and actually supports the water. The vessel structure only acts as a support but is not responsible for maintaining the water in the vessel. For this reason, even though the vessel structure is cracked, absolutely nothing will happen, as the reinforced membrane will continue to maintain all the water inside, without losing a drop.
The photo shows a cracked pool. What a disaster!
WHAT IS WATER TIGHTNESS
If you want to build or renovate your pool, you should know what this word means. Water tightness is a property that prevents the loss of water in your pool (whether or not an earthquake occurs). RENOLIT ALKORPLAN guarantees the water tightness of your poll’s membrane for 10 years, no matter what the cause of the cracks is.
REINFORCED MEMBRANE vs. GLASS COATING (GRESITE)
The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN membrane withstands seismic movements, the effects of time and weather conditions like no other material. Other solutions, such as glass coatings, or pools made of painted concrete cannot guarantee you a pool that will last “for years”. On the contrary, we offer you a written guarantee of the water tightness of the membrane for 10 years.
CAN I INSTALL IT IN ANY POOL?
Yes, of course. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN is ideal for new pools and also for renovating pools. Its flexibility allows it to adapt to any vessel shape or design, regardless of the material used to make the vessel. All you have to do is make your selection from our wide range of colours, designs and textures and we’ll take care of the rest.
1. We take care of each tiny detail
Custom-made materials are not sufficient; businesses must adapt to the customer, down to the very last detail. For that reason, RENOLIT attaches great importance to training its installers.
Our reinforced membrane allows fast, easy installation. Pools with water curtains of 600 m2 can be installed in just over one week, which is a decisive factor in hotels with a constant annual occupancy.
2. Our company is geared to greater use intensity
Another argument that leads many architects to opt for the reinforced membrane is its resistance to corrosion and its anti-skid properties. This reasoning has become increasingly more important due to the fact that most hotels have animation departments that include water sports activity programmes. Water aerobics, water polo or aquatic inflatable sessions mean constant pressure and wear on the pool bottom and this increased use intensity has prompted us to offer sports equipment in which safety is the primordial factor.
3. Cleanliness and hygiene
The manufacturing and varnishing processes we use to make our materials prevent the formation of stains and the adherence of dirt. Our ARKORPLAN material has greater resistance in general to pool cleaning compared to other materials, while our range of plain, homogeneous colours gives a sensation of cleanliness and quality.
4. A single goal: to AVOID disturbing the client
We have learned to reduce the effects of the physical conditions of the terrain, which often result in unsightly cracks. Even if the pool bottom is damaged, the RENOLIT membranes ensure the pool is sealed, thus reducing the need to execute reform work which may generate noise or annoying dust clouds.
5. A new scenario: Europe is building fewer elements, but of a much higher quality
RENOLIT has not wasted any time. Current building activity levels suggest a considerable improvement in customer service, thereby allowing hotels to provide their guests with health and wellbeing. In summary, a new synergy has arisen that indicates favourable business prospects for everyone.
Main Pool in the Roman Baths in Bath, UK
Already in the twelfth century, “pools” (from the Greek πισίνα) were serving as locations for socializing and as meeting epicenters.
Currently, hotels define the highlights for encounters; and if two thousand years ago pools were important to cities, today we can say that they are so for the tourism sector.
The hotelier field is giving way to a European economy without growth. Still, the upward trends regarding consumption in the sector make it not only a great market ally, but an apparent reference for RENOLIT.
HOW TIME HAS PASSED!
To the right we see Vindoland , one of the first pools in the world in UK. To the left, one of the most modern pools constructed with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN.
Even with this, there is no need to go back too many centuries to find hotelier perspectives with a common denominator: the construction of swimming pools. In the early 70s, Europe experienced a catastrophe of “Regional Plans” in regulatory offices for sports and the professionalization of the management of sports events. (See the increase in participation in the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972, for example).
The collaboration between the public and private sector generated a synergy in improving service benefits to citizens. What were the repercussions of this situation in regards to hotels? The new macroeconomic environment not only increased the volume of business, but also the requirements thereof. At that time, a high percentage of customers did not know how to swim. However, the children of these guests of yesteryear would be the future users of hotel pools. And with this, and after being mentioned in famous songs and filmed in famous movies, users would be as faithful to the same as demanding with them.
Pools have always been a source of controversy. If in ancient Rome we wondered if their healing benefits were divine or earthly, thirty years ago we debated whether it was better to build them covered or uncovered. Currently, we continue progressing and giving way to the profitability of replacing tiles with waterproofing membrane.
