Ever heard of the Slovene Riviera? The beautiful coastline of Slovenia is located on the Gulf of Trieste, by the Adriatic Sea. A charming location with charming households like this wonderful one embellished with a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige.

A private house located in the seaside resort and spa town of Portorose (Portorož), whose owners were having problems with the previous lining system, which had been installed back in 2005. The old 1.5 mm blue liner had been wrongly installed, what caused water leaks on many spots.

Spambient, a pool building company from Slovenia specialised in swimming pools and whirlpools was in charge of the complete pool repair on this occasion. Refurbishing a pool lined with reinforced membrane is very easy and it will not take more than a few days depending on the pool dimensions. That is exactly one of the many advantages of the on site lining: simple installation without additional building work.

Since the previous lining had also had problems of colour fading, this time the landlords opted for a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige: a 2 mm thick pool liner inspired by nature provided with great durability. A 3D relief which reproduces volcanic rock and perfectly matches with the red-coloured façade and the surrounding pool deck.

The 13.5 x 5.8 m overflow pool with a variable depth which ranges from 1.4 to 2.1 m, has four inbuilt underwater windows, an unusual but impressive pool design. It is also equiped with water attractions, a submerged pool roller cover and an inverter driven heat pump.

In a nutshell, a pool that stands out not only because of its wonderful setting with gorgeous seaview, but also because of the pool characteristics, that make it unique.

Pool lining for spas

Pool lining for spas

Only pioneers dare to try new applications for already existing products. We are very thankful for the never-ending thirst for innovation of our customers.

Gleomar Piscinas, a swimming pool builder from Gran Canaria was commissioned to build the spa of the Hotel Bohemia Suites & Spa. In order to do so they tested for the first time RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH pool linings for spas not only on the basin but also on the adjacent walls and showers.

Many pool builders are sceptical about lining spas with on-site liners because of the high water temperatures. The pool builder form the Canary Islands was, in contrast, completeley convinced that RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH is a suitable pool lining for spas.

Both pool and whirlpool tub were lined with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity whereas the walls were lined with TOUCH Elegance. The shower walls were also on-site lined. In order to guarantee the watertighness not only was the reinforced pool liner glued with dispersion adhesive  but also welded.

The outcome of this colour combination is impressive. 150 sqm of RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH Vanity and 24 sqm of ALKORPLAN TOUCH Elegance were needed in order to line the 50 cbm the spa takes up. 

Why should you choose ALKORPLAN TOUCH as your pool lining for spas?

The new glue for expanded polystyrene specific for pools

The new glue for expanded polystyrene specific for pools

Nowadays there are new pool building techniques, which are simpler and quicker and that do not require a construction work. The latest trend in pool construction are the pools made of expanded polystyrene or EPS.

The use of polystyrene blocks or EPS filled with reinforced concrete has become widespread in the construction industry because it lightens certain building structures. But it is particularly in the pool building sector that it offers the most benefits in terms of endurance and construction speed.

It is very often the chosen material in multi-storey buildings where weight plays a major role in the construction. Furthermore, because of its high isulation value, this material gives a complete termal isulation. Thus, it should be noted that building a swimming pool using expanded polystyrene blocks is not only a more affordable alternative but also more energy efficient thanks to low running costs.

Apart from this, it is worth mentioning that expanded polystyrene or EPS avoids the growth of bacteria and fungi making it an ideal material for pool construction. Moreover this material is used not only for leveling the pool, but also for building steps or seats.

Expanded polystyrene blocks are lighter, cleaner and quicker to install than traditional bricks forming any boundary and shape of your pool design. Afterwards, only the installation of a RENOLIT ALKORPLAN on-site liner will be necessary in order to waterproof the swimming pool, thus saving the construction time of your pool.

For all that, RENOLIT has launched on the market the new RENOLIT ALKORGLUE zero solvents for geotextile fleece, which is specifically designed for not damaging the expanded polystyrene blocks used in the pool construction industry.

Thanks to the fact that it is solvent-free, not only is it not aggressive to the polystyrene blocks used for building swimming pools but it is also ideal for fixing RENOLIT ALKORPLAN fungicide pool felt underlay before installing RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced membrane, the ultimate on-site pool liner.

Since the drying time is more than half an hour, small mistakes, which may occur when placing the pool felt underlay, can be corrected immediately without damaging it.

The RENOLIT ALKORPLAN pool felt underlay is a blue non-woven fabric of 400 g polypropylene fibres, which have undergone a fungicide treatment in order to avoid the proliferation of fungi and algae. This felt is installed directly on the walls and the bottom of the pool before the on-site lining takes place, and among other purposes, it helps make the bathers steps more comfortable.

In case the chosen pattern is RENOLIT ALKORPLAN TOUCH and butt welding must be carried out on the floor, installing pool felt underlay is unavoidable. Even if one of its main purposes is to avoid stain formation thanks to its fungicide treatment, using RENOLIT ALKORPLAN geotextile has also an aesthetic purpose. The result is a completely smooth surface because the felt underlay levels any small irregularities of the ground out. It is thus the right partner for pool refurbishments and renovations.

The new RENOLIT ALKORGLUE Zero Solvents glue is non-flammable and can be applied either wet, semi-wet or as contact glue. It should be applied with a spatula, serrated depending on the surface. No mixing is necessary. Since it is slow-drying, by applying pressure with a roller any grooves or air pockets will be removed. Stains or traces of wet RENOLIT ALKORGLUE Zero Solvents can be easily removed with water.

Pool colour combination

Pool colour combination

Pool colour combination

When you decide to build a pool, anticipation is the highest form of joy! Some important decisions need to be made: where? how big? what pool colour?

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?

31 colours are available in order to individually design your pool

RENOLIT ALKORPLAN provides you with 31 different colours and patterns. So now what? Which on site lining colour should I choose? Many pool owners think that one colour is enough. Others prefer being creative and choose a pool colour combination.

Our product range is made of 5 different product tyes. All of them with 10 years watertightness guarantee; and ALKORPLAN XTREME even 15!

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.
