Round steel jacketed pools
Now summer becomes even more beautiful: Our round steel wall pools are the perfect choice for a refreshing cool down on hot days.
Round steel jacketed pools consist of a steel wall and a winter-proof pool inner liner, which makes it possible to leave the pool standing all year round. Dismantling in winter is not necessary. Round teel wall pools can be set up free-standing or completely or partially built into the ground.
Frequently asked questions for Steel wall pools round:
It is essential to set up the pool when there is no wind, gusts of wind make the construction of the steel wall difficult and can cause damage.
It is not recommended to bring salt water and steel into contact with each other, as the salt water and salt water vapours can cause the steel to rust.
Most steel wall pools can be partially or completely installed in the ground. Please refer to the respective operating instructions.
To ensure that the pool remains stable, add the backfilling from an installation depth of 30 cm.
The additional concrete shell prevents damage to the steel shell when there is no water in the pool.
For steel wall pools, the ground must be flat and level. The pool must not be set up on a slope or sloping ground. If the ground is a backfilled area, you will need a self-supporting foundation slab (e.g. concreted). The strength of the foundation and retaining walls must be decided by a master builder or structural engineer. The steel wall pool must not be placed on loose or sandy ground.
All models, except the steel wall pool of the "New Splasher Secure Series", are winterproof and can therefore be left standing in winter.
Depending on the material, the pool must be set up at outside temperatures of 15 ° C to a maximum of 25 ° C, as the material can contract or expand. Steel wall pools with overlapping sheeting require a cove. Styrofoam wedges have to be glued to the inside of the steel wall between the wall and the bottom.
So that the liner can be placed over the steel wall (i.e. it overlaps it), the liner must be produced higher than the pool actually is.
Round steel wall pools
One reason why round steel-walled pools are so popular is that they cool off on hot days. However, with a diameter of 500 cm or more, you can also swim very well in a circle.
Round pools are characterised by their simple and quick construction of just a few hours. They can be partially or completely built into the ground or be free-standing. Not every model is suitable for installation in the ground. As a rule, most round steel-walled pools are free-standing. It should be noted that pools with a depth of 150 cm must be installed at least 60 cm into the ground.
The advantage of free-standing pools is that the bathing water warms up more quickly compared to the built-in pool. Round pools can still be free-standing with a pool height of 132 cm, which means a water depth of 120 cm. Here, an extra wide handrail and a strong support construction are incorporated so that the pool gets additional stability.
Our range of round steel wall pools offers a choice of steel shell thicknesses from 0.25 mm to 0.6 mm for a depth of 120 cm and 0.8 mm for a water depth of 150 cm. The deeper the steel wall pool, the stronger the steel wall and the pool liner should be to guarantee stability, safety and durability. The steel wall and the pool liner usually consist of a 0.4 mm thick steel or PVC layer. More solid steel-walled pools with a water depth of 120 cm or more consist of a 0.6 to 0.8 mm thick steel shell and a 0.6 mm thick inner liner. The winter-proof pool liner protects the steel shell pool from external influences and potential damage and means that the pool does not have to be dismantled during the winter months. The handrail secures the inner liner. Inexpensive and smaller entry-level models in the world of round steel shell pools differ due to a thinner steel layer as well as inner liner and the need for dismantling during the winter months. Round steel wall pools, unlike oval pools, do not require lateral support struts and are cheaper to purchase.
- Round steel wall pools from Steinbach are available in a wide range of equipment variants and dimensions
- Free-standing round pools are available in heights from 90 cm to 135 cm, with diameters from 350 cm to 732 cm.
- Round pools that are partially or completely built into the ground are available in heights from 90 cm to 150 cm, with a diameter of up to 600 cm.
- Please note the different intermediate levels in height as well as in diameter.
Steel wall round pool: The right size
When choosing a pool, please note that the effective water depth is always pool height minus 10 cm. Example: With a pool height of 120 cm, the effective water depth is 110 cm.
Which size and equipment variant is suitable for you depends on several factors. There must be a sufficiently flat surface in your garden for the pool as well as an adequate cleaning system and an access possibility, this concerns above all a ladder.
There must be a gap at the sides so that the pool is freely accessible. With regard to the storage area, it is important to note that free-standing round pools must stand on a fleece or on a paved surface, depending on the model. Paved surfaces prevent the water from seeping into the ground and can be made of a wide variety of materials such as concrete, asphalt, gravel and the like.
If you decide to install the pool partially or completely in the ground, allow for a preparation time for working on the installation site. The pool wall must be structurally protected against earth pressure.
In addition to the purchase costs of the steel shell pool, adequate pool technology and pool accessories for cleaning and safety must be taken into account. For reasons of hygiene and health, professional filter systems are required for the daily circulation and cleaning of the pool water. Skimmers and inlet nozzles provide daily water circulation. The skimmer is a surface suction device that sucks in dirty water by means of a pump, cleans it through a filter screen and pumps it back into the pool through the inlet nozzle. The filter system, Steinbach Original Filter Balls, sand or suspended cartridge filter, must match the size of the pool. The round shape of the pool has the advantage that cleaning with a hoover and pool robot is easy, as there are no corners that are difficult to reach. The automatic and self-propelled pool cleaners remove the dirt independently.
The approximate installation time is from 3 hours, depending on the equipment variant and size. Please note that any preparatory work for the parking area and filling the water cannot be included in the pool installation time. When assembling the pool yourself, make sure that the pool liner does not wrinkle.
