FAQ : Still having question about the Solidpool® system ?

Structure

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : How does the structure last long term ?

    Answer : The structure does not move in long-term. The block is completely filled with concrete and does not have to be removed after.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : Where are the blocks made ? Are you the owner ofthe product?

    Answer : The blocks are made in France, in a factory based in Maillat (near Oyonnax and 1 hour far from Lyon). This place is well-known as « Plastic valley » because of factories’ high quality product.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : What is the block made of ?

    Answer : The block is composed of a material called polypropylena injected into a specific mold to a very high temperature. This material allows us to create a lightweight (3.4 kg) and very resistant block. The product is also recyclable to infinity and respectful of the environment.

Construction

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : Can we build a complete above-ground pool with this system?

    Answer : It is possible to create having a structure self-supported.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : Do we need reinforcement from outside the structure ?

    Answer : Nothing is required out of the pool. The structure is self-supporting.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : How many technicians are required for a 8 x 4 pool?

    Answer : In Solidpool®, we have 3 technicians who build about 40 pools per year. During high-season, each one goes to make is own project. At the beginning, you can count about 3 technicians per pool, no more.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : ls there a risk at the part between the slab and the wall?

    Answer : If the concrete composition is the correct one and used correctly, there is no risk for this. The assembling steps are the most important, and this part can be reinforced with a waterproof roll which will inflate in contact of the water.

  • arrow_drop_downQuestion : Why do you pour the structure in two times instead of one ?

    Answer : After trying the two methods, we pour the floor and then the slab in two times as it allows us to manage our schedule and our construction stages: first we make the slab during the non-rainy days, and then build the structure if it rains, so the construction does not stopped.
