Pool Systems

You will find in Mallorca several construction systems to create pools but we, the Real Estate Construction-Mallorca, use only two different pool construction techniques. Our pools, depending on the location, form and size are either “projected – with lost casing” or “poured”. We try to avoid all the other techniques except when the standard techniques are not possible. The pool impermeability should be part of the creating technique. Additional protective coatings in the pool should provide more security, but never represent the basis of impermeability.

From a technical point of view, we separate the pressure fromh the water and especially the summed forces, which result by the displacement of water – from the impermeability of the pool structure. A renovation is limited to the right preparation and the right choice and application of the sealing-process if the container is technically stable enough. In case the structure is not designed for the resulting forces, it first has to be strengthened structurally, if possible.

Due to our pool construction expertise not only have we built many different pool shapes, but have also carried out renovation works lasting recent years. Even the extension of an existing pool is possible with the right technique and is guaranteed!

Also the transformation of a fish pond or water storage structure for watering the land - to a swimming- pool is possible.

The question of changing water volume contained in a pool has to be addressed. A pool is a water container which can take a maximum water amount and which has to maintain a minimum amount of water in order to function well. As soon as the pool is used for swimming or when there is heavy rain there is a displacement of water. Strong evaporation also causes a water displacement. A pool has to be able to deal with a certain degree of water fluctuation for proper functionality. Therefore we choose between two pool types.

Skimmer-Pool System

Pool systems, where the volume change is intercepted in the same pool container, and pools, which get help from a so called surge tank.

Pool systems where the pool container provides buffer space for the change of water volume, are recognized for the “skimmer”, which are typically provided with raised curb.

Infinity - Pool System

Pool systems where an additional surge tank is found are known as infinity pools – or with circulating shore tile. The pool curb belongs to the water area and a in the terrace integrated drain carries the water to the surge tank.


Water Treatment

Pools are also classified by the treatment of the water quality. The typical forms of water treatments in Mallorca are divided into the so called “chlorine-pools” and in “salt-water-pools”.

With both types PH+- is used to regulate the PH – value. In the chlorine-pool the water is usually regulated by hand either with chlorine granules or multipurpose chlorine tablets. For the salt water pool special salt is mixed directly in the pool, which will be converted into chlorine by an electrolysis device for the water purification.

The common pool sizes:

8 x 4 m

9 x 4 m

10 x 5 m

12 x 5 m

12 x 6 m

Modern pool sizes:

10 x 4 m

12 x 4 m

15 x 4 m

18 x 4 m

20 x 4 m
