Pool colour combination

As for the pool colour, it will have an impact on the whole picture. That’s why it’s so important to give some thought to the pool colour choice. The first question would be: should my pool be unicolour or preferably a colour combination?

Pool colour combination. How does it work?

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN pool linig is supplied in rolls and it’s the pool builder or installer who cuts the reinforced membrane and welds it on site according to your pool dimensions and form.

This type of pool lining is thus custom-made. The customer can choose among different patterns and combine them as she or he wishes in order to create a unique swimming pool. Often the steps colour is different from the walls or the bottom colour. This way the steps are more visible and it makes the access to the pool easier.  

Both RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH and CERAMICS are frequently used for this purpose because of their one-of-a-kind 2 mm thickness, slip resistance and 3D-effect. A particular way of pool colour combination is to line the steps 4 cm over the edge. That way it will look like natural stone.

Don’t put limits to your creativity! It’s a common practice in both wellness centers and modern bathrooms. If you also line the bottom of your pool with another pool liner colour you’ll create more depth.

Thanks to RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH you bring the natural stone effect from the surroundings into your pool and have also the advantage of using the robotic pool cleaner not that often.

There are hundreds of different pool colour combinations and there’s no accounting for taste. Nonetheless, there are a few points to take into account when choosing the colour of your pool lining.

Temperature
Darker colours absorb more heat. The water temperature between a lighter and a darker on site lining fluctuates between 1 to 2 degrees.

The pool water colour
Depending on the exposure to sun light and the depth, the pool water colour will be mainly determined by the colour of your pool lining: clear water, light blue shades, wild and mysterious pool water, turquoise water… And of course when combining different pool lining colours, you’ll obtain different pool water colours in the same pool.

House and garden
How does your house look like? And your garden? What kind of pool deck do you have? You have to take into consideration the surroundings when choosing the best colour for your pool.

Take a look at some examples of pool colour combinations and if you are still a sea of doubts, then it’s time to get in touch with a professional pool builder.

Pool orientation

Pool orientation

 

In small gardens or backyards, we do not always have the opportunity to choose the location and orientation of our future pool. On the other hand, in many other cases the homeowner can choose among different places in order to build the leisure space.

 

When thinking about building a new pool many questions may arise regarding the pool orientation. Do I have to place it where there is more sunlight?  Should I keep it far away from trees and plants so that the leaves do not fall inside? Will my pool get dirtier if I do not consider the prevailing wind directions?

The correct answer is that both sun and wind are an important factor when selecting the perfect spot for your pool. So, it should be a sunny spot, far from trees and plants and facing towards the prevailing wind direction of the specific loaction.

Let the sunshine in!

Considering the amount of sunlight and shade is critical to choose your pool orientation. Not only should you consider how many hours of sunlight and at what time of the day but also how the house itself or the surrounding landscape elements will cast shadow onto the pool.

Do not forget that after or before diving into your pool, you will want to lie down on the pool deck in order to get a tan. So, try to get as much sunlight as posible. The colour and brightness of the water will also look differently. The less sun the pool gets, the less bright will its colour shine. If you have small children or a sensitive skin, you may also need to consider providing some shading with a sunshade or a pergola, for example.

Branches and leaves

Plants and trees are a fantastic element in any garden because they cool the environment, but when there is also a pool they can be hassle. Think about what kind of plantings you would like to have around your pool and choose the ones with the minimal leaf drop. This way you’ll have a low-maintenance relationship with your pool. Consulting a good landscape gardener will always be a good help.

Where to place the skimmers?

And last but not least, we have to think about where to place the skimmers because it will save us a lot of maintenance time. Skimmers helps to clean the pool water by capturing floating dirt such as flowers, leaves or dead insects. They should also face the predominating wind direction and the eye ball jets just in front of it. If it’s a rectangular pool, they should be placed on the small walls. This way we’ll keep dirt from building up on the corners of the bottom and on the floating line. Do not protect the skimmers from the wind!

We understand that sometimes there are limited options because of the existing building or the space available for the new pool.  Of course the optimal situation is when you are designing your new house and you can start the building of the pool from zero. Anyway, we recommend you contacting a reliable pool builder who will help you with this important decision.

Pool prices in the internet

If you are desperately searching for pool prices in the internet, please be careful!  Do not trust the low prices that some websites announce.

 

Don’t forget that you will have to live with your pool for many years, many summers, many kids’ birthday parties and many family barbecues… So it’s a good idea to think long-term. Cheap pools are not a good investment. It’s better to rethink your budget and get the gorgeous pool you always dreamt about. Fair pool prices are arguable.

 

Things you’ll have to consider on your way to your dream pool.

 

How long does a pool take to build?

No one wants workers hanging around in their house for many weeks. Of course when you decide to build a pool, you want to have it as quick as possible. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced pool liner needs half the time of installation in comparison with other lining systems. And don’t forget that time is money!

Although we can’t give specific times because it will depend on other elements such as the excavation, plumbing or deck, just to give you a rough idea: a lining renovation of a 10 x 5 m pool takes only 4 days.

How to avoid future unpleasant surprises?

Pool leaks can be very frustrating for home owners and can result in serious damage to the surrounding property. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN guarantees 100% waterproofing for at least 10 years. Our reinforced membrane is made of 2 sheets of PVC-P laminated with a core of a polyester mesh, that provides great strength and durability.

Just a few basic maintenance steps and your RENOLIT ALKORPLAN pool will be in perfect condition for a long time. Your pool should be a pleasant experience, not a punishment.  We guarantee minimum maintenance.

 

How can I know what’s best for me?

Building a pool costs a large sum, so why not making it as personal as possible. Personalisation and flexibility should be taken into account when designing your pool.

Differences between reinforced pool liners

Differences between reinforced pool liners

Differences between reinforced pool liners. Not all are the same!

 

When a product is good there are always copycat businesses coming up. The inevitable happens, but there is no such thing as a free lunch. 

 

That a product looks like another one and that it sells at a lower price doesn’t mean that the quality is the same as the original one. There are indeed differences between reinforced pool liners. RENOLIT always has to deal with copycat businesses, but you shouldn’t let yourself be fooled. All products that take advantage of this successful situation do not have either the technical features characteristic of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN or its quality standards.

That means that once the “mirror” has been installed, it will deteriorate after a while, it will lose its colour and texture and will have to be replaced shortly after. That is without mentioning how annoyed the poor pool owner will be after realising the cheat.

How to detect it?

There are different ways of knowing whether the pool lining that is being installed is RENOLIT ALKORPLAN or not.

 

  • You get what you pay for. Price normally indicates whether the lining that’s being installed in your pool is good or not. As already pointed out here, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

  • Comparisons are odious. In both our blog and in the shops of our authorised pool builders there are catalogues, pictures and sample books of our real product so that you can touch it. It is good to compare what the installer is offering you with pictures of our product in order to make sure that the reinforced liner we are being offered is the original one.

  • Online presence. In our social media we provide comprehensive information on our product with pictures of pool projects from companies and customers, testimonial videos, tutorials and pieces of advice on RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced membrane. Our online presence and transparency makes the difference in comparison with our competitors.

 

  • The back. Either if you are an installer or an end customer, when you receive our product please make sure that RENOLIT ALKORPLAN is printed on the back. This guarantees that it is indeed the original product with all its benefits.

Several advantages of our product ranges!

When you choose RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced pool liner you enjoy several benefits.

  • First of all, all our ranges are coated with a protective lacquer which prevents the premature ageing of the liner. They are provided with great durability and thanks to their flexibility they can be installed on any shape or surface. They are durable, strong and beautiful.
  • Top-quality materials: Apart from the advantages of any RENOLIT ALKORPLAN product range, we have to mention that the manufacturing materials are of high quality. Before sending the reinforced pool liner to the installer we check and analyse it in order to guarantee an outstanding quality and 100% watertightness.
  • Guarantee: We look after our customers’ tranquility, so that they just have to care about enjoying their pool. In all our RENOLIT ALKORPLAN product ranges we guarantee and certify watertightness for at least 10 years.  In the case of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME, we offer 15 years waterproofing guarantee.

The peace of mind you are given when you know the benefits of our reinforced pool liner is priceless. Find out RENOLIT certified installers near you via our contact form. This way you’ll get the original product for your pool refurbishment or for your new pool as well as its correct installation.

Nothing is more resistant!

 

Our partner CLEVER PISCINE from Guanzate in the province of Como in Lombardy presents us this beautiful pool. A pool renovation in the sports centre Bluetime Nuoto; a pool of 20m x 8m x 1,35m where RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Blue Fresh has been installed.

In the middle of the green park of La Lura this public swimming pool hosts all sorts of courses: aqua gag (soft gymnastic exercises), aqua gym and aqua cycling, among others. That is why the reinforced liner XTREME Blue Fresh was suggested and chosen for this specific renovation project.  RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME was the first chlorine-resistant reinforced membrane launched on the market, resistant even under extreme conditions. 

The colour of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME Blue Fresh makes the surrounding area of the pool and the other structural elements stand up. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME is suitable for indoor pools with high temperatures and a high number of bathers, for public swimming pools, for pools where aggressive chemical products are being used and also for pool renovations because of stains or discoloration. Nothing is more resistant than RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME; available in 7 different colours.

What’s more, don’t think of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN XTREME as a reinforced pool liner only for public swimming pools. It’s also foreseen to be used in private pools since it’s ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy their pool rather than worry about its maintenance.
