Water is the 5th element for animal or plants.

Size of Pool You needed:
Its depend upon the size of space available with you Arrdev have small pool form 100 sq. ft. to the 10000 sq ft. Olympic swimming pool. The basement is to be observed as the two kind of pool proposal.

A RecreationCenter
This is probably the most popular type of pool. It’s where you and your family and friends hang out and have some good wet fun. If spending an afternoon splashing around on a float is your idea of a swim, perhaps an aboveground pool might be for you. Or you can opt for an in-ground pool that has a constant depth – let’s say about 3.5 feet. Both are good choices, especially if small children will be using the pool. The depth accommodates most pool games and is still deep enough to swim for exercise.
Arrdev swim spa is perfectly suit for this kind of activity.

A large pool with a deep and an attached in-ground spa offers something for everyone. In commercial pools these are the attracting Arrdev prefabricated pools are good enough with kids and main swimming pool with same structure. (Unique concept of swimming pool ).

If you decide to add a diving board, the pool will need a deep end. Recommendations vary but plan on a depth of about 9 to 11 feet in the diving area, which should extend out a minimum of approximately 12 feet in front if the diving board.

Other amenities to consider for a recreation center include slides and a nearby spa.
An ExerciseCenter
Lap pools are for those who want to exercise regularly by swimming. While a 4-foot depth is adequate, lap swimmers need space. An Olympic size pool is 25 meters long – that’s a little over 82 feet in length. Most yards don’t have that kind of space, but if you can squeeze a pool that is about 45 feet long into your yard, you will be able to do some serious training.

For those who don’t want to swim laps but do plan on doing water aerobics, size isn’t important. As long as the pool is about 4 feet deep, you will get a good workout.

Of course, nothing says you can’t have a pool that lets you do both: float away a hot afternoon, and train for the next Olympics. As you will see later, many pools come in a variety of shapes and sizes. If you have the space in your yard, it is possible to combine the long narrow shape of the typical lap pool with a large constant- depth area for pool games.
Hydrotherapy pools are like that only.

A swim spa. Another choice for exercise buffs is a swim spa. This is a small pool – some models are only 12 to 20 feet long that produces a strong artificial current against which you can swim without moving forward. This action is sometimes called “treadmill swimming.” Both lap pools and swim spas are great choices for indoor exercise areas.
Arrdev pools have both kind of endless pool machine.

 A Relaxation Center
A good soak in a swimming pool can certainly relax you. But to relieve the tensions of the day or pamper sore muscles, nothing beats a session in a spa or hot tub. Many people who build a pool include either an in-ground or portable spa as part of the package. As with pools, there is a lot of choose from here. In-ground versions complement the design of the larger pool. Usually, they are built right next to the pool where they share pumps, filters, and heaters. Portable spas give you the option of placing the spa in some other part of the yard, such as on an existing deck or patio, where it is easier to reach from the house. Portable spas are self-contained units with pumps, filters, a heater, and sometimes lighting built right into the unit

Smart Tip
Give the idea of the pool with a deep end serious thought. In my experience, most homeowners don’t need deep pools. These models are more expensive to build and maintain, and there are obvious safety factors to consider.
A portable spa, above, comes with numerous jets to massage and relax muscles.
An overflow spill tub, below, offers a deeper soak – as much as 3ft. – than other types of spas.
Safety: always check safety of pool surface as the pool with plain floor are prone to accidents.
Create a Plan
If you’ve thought about installing a pool or spa, you probably have a general idea about where to place it in your yard. A pool of spa is going to be the focus of an outdoor living area, so it should be in a convenient spot. Like a deck or patio, it should have a connection to the house. You will gravitate to the area more readily if you can reach the new pool through a public room such as family room or kitchen. Also, it is usually easier to keep an eye on what is going on in the pool from these frequented parts of the house. Little – used areas, such as bedroom in the middle of the day, do not make good entry points of the pool area, but might be ideal for gaining access to a private, enclosed spa or hot tub.

Having a general idea of where to locate your pool or spa is a good start, but there are a number of other considerations to keep in mind. The best way to approach this stage of the planning is to draw a plot plan of your property on graph paper. This will give you a scaled-down overhead view that should show the location of all of the existing elements, such as the house, driveway, lawns, gardens, trees, decks and any other outdoor structures. If you’ll be adding other features, the plan will also help you to allot the proper space and location for them on your site.

If you plan to do landscaping simultaneously with pool construction, you might want to include these plans as well, perhaps on a separate copy or on a tissue paper overlay with the pool and spa in place. At the very least, you will have begun the process of determining your future plans for the area surrounding the pool or spa. A pool attracts a crowd, so it’s wise to locate it where access to the house is easy.
Smart Tip
A complaint I hear from homeowners is that they wish they had put the pool closer to the house. A pool that is close makes entertaining and bringing food and drinks from the house – and cleaning up after a party – much easier.
 Survey Maps
An alternative is to create a base map from a copy of your plot (or property survey) prepared by surveyors, which most homeowners receive when they purchase their house. You can also request one from your tax assessor’s office. Copies are usually available at no cost or for a nominal fee. A surveyor’s map save you time taking measurements. In addition to showing property lines, a footprint on the house, and other significant structures, the plat should show easements and the location of overhead and underground utility lines. Make enlarged copies of the plat so that you can draw on them, or use one copy as a base and add tissue layers to draw in the other components.

Items to Include in a Plan
Several features will work together to give you a clear picture of your site and help you to determine the best location of your pool or spa. It’s important to include all if them in your plan.

Existing Structures. In addition to the house and garage, indicate tool sheds, decks, patios, and any existing fences. Make note of all paved surfaces such as driveways and walkways.

Trees and Shrubs. Draw in all of the shrubs and trees on your property. It is important to keep the location of trees and shrubs in mind when placing your pool. They can provide shade or act as a windbreak if it’s needed. Avoid placing pools and spas under trees so that you are not continually scooping out leaves from the water. Even the needles from conifers can become a maintenance problem. Existing trees and shrubs can be relocated or removed, but that will increase the cost of your project.

Buried Utilities. Mark underground gas, sewer, water, and electric lines after consulting with your utility companies and local building department for the exact locations. Don’t forget to indicate septic tanks and leech fields on you plan as well. Also, make note of any overhead power lines that cross your property. It is illegal to build a pool under power lines.

Soil conditions. Soil type is a factor to consider before selecting a site for a pool. Soil that is too sandy will be difficult to excavate because it won’t hold a shape; too much clay tends to expand when it gets wet. Don’t worry if you can’t tell whether the soil is sandy or contains a lot of clay; the pool builder can make that judgment. But it will help if he can get information from you that’s only available through long-term observation, such as if there are areas in the ward where water tends to pond after a rain shower.

Sitting a pool takes into account several factors, including soil quality and the slope of the land.
Slope of the land. The slope of the landscape must also be taken into consideration. In general, surface water should drain away from the pool. You should avoid situations where surface runoff flows into the pool. If you have a flat yard or even one where small amounts of water puddle, you can bring in topsoil to create a gentle slope away from the pool. The contractor may also suggest a drainage system for the area around the pool. A subsurface drainage system may also be necessary if naturally occurring ground water keeps the soil wet. The system, which is usually perforated drainage pipe buried in gravel, may be able to divert water away from the pool area.
Sun and Wind patterns. You will get a lot more enjoyment from your pool if you pay attention to how the Sun and Wind affect your site. Keep in mind that in the northern hemisphere, the sun’s arc during the day follows a southerly course. In summer, the sun seems to be high overhead. In winter, the sun tracks lower in the sky. The sun is usually at its hottest in the left afternoon when it is sinking in the west. If your pool or spa is open to these directions, it will receive the maximum warmth from the sun.

Whether or not that is a good thing depends on where you live. In hot climates, the afternoon such can be unbearable. By the same logic, a pool or spa always in the shade in the north could be just as unpleasant much of the time. The goal is to consider the prevailing local conditions when choosing a site for your pool. If the spot you had in mind doesn’t get much sun and you live in Minnesota, you may want to find another location – perhaps one where most of the pool would be exposed to the sun in the late afternoon. Or, if possible, you may want to consider removing whatever is causing the shade.

A strong wind or even a stiff breeze blowing across the surface of the pool can make swimming uncomfortable. The same is true for the location of a spa. Fortunately, you can divert the wind with clumps of plantings, fences or even the placement of a small enclosed structure, such as an equipment shed or changing cabana.

A wall of hedges and other dense plantings offers privacy and serves as a windbreak.
A solid fence, located to block the wind, can keep the water and swimmers warm while providing security and privacy around the pool area.
An open fence that allows a moderate amount of breeze to enter the area is a good idea if the pool is located in a spot that receives long hours of hot sun.
Adding the Pool or Spa to Your Plan
Once you have a plan of your yard and all of its important elements, you can begin experimenting with locations for the pool. Don’t be too worried about getting everything perfect at this stage. Your pool builder will have suggestions about where to locate the pool, too. But this exercise will help you get started on the overall design of your yard of the pool or spa in it.

Try to be as accurate as possible when drawing the plan. That means you will probably need to take some measurements. Rather than drawing straight lines, you can use a series of ovals and circles to show the relative size of components and their relationship to other things in the yard. No one would be able to actually build from such a plan, but these sketches can be starting point. Once you have the plan on paper you can pencil the location of pool or spa.

There are also home design software products on the market that you can use. The software is fairly expensive and lets you place standard objects such as trees and decks with a touch of a button. You can also move things around easier on the computer than if you are working by hand.

Computer software lets you easily create and alter a number of plans quickly once you become familiar with the software. However, you prefer the traditional method of paper and pencil, use tracing paper to sketch out the pool or spa, and anything else, such as a deck or patio that will be added around it.
Practical Realities
While it is okay to daydream about long, lazy afternoons in your new pool or spa, you can’t ignore the practical realities of everyday life. Adding a pool or spa to your yard will change the way you use your outdoor living area. Plan for these changes now, before work actually begins. Here are some things to think about.

Privacy. This is often a concern of pool and spa owners. On most suburban building lots the backyard isn’t visible from the street. But if that isn’t the case, pay particular attention to where you need to shield the view and how you can add privacy. Items to consider include plantings of tall shrubs and trees or fencing.
And don’t forget your neighbor’s privacy and comfort. Placing a pool, spa or its equipment too close to the property line may not be the best interests of friendship and peaceful coexistence.

Access to Electric and Water Services. You will need both of these for the finished pool or spa and while the work is underway. You may have to upgrade electrical service to accommodate the various pumps, filters and other accessories that are part of a new pool or spa. At the very least, plan on an electrician running dedicated circuits to the pool area. In some cases, he can run the circuit from the existing electric panel. But if the panel is full or nearly full, which means all of the possible circuit locations are already occupied, you may need a boost in service. That means that an electrician, working with your utility company, will add circuits to bring more power into your home. Also, be aware that electric lines must not cross over the pool. Discuss your option with your pool dealer and an electrician. 

You will need water to feel your pool, but you will also need water to maintain it. A garden hose that reaches your pool is adequate in most cases. For large in – ground pools, builders can add an automatic fill line that attaches to your existing water supply pipes.

Water is also necessary to clean and maintain pumps and filters. Many people overlook this requirement and end up snaking garden hoses across the yard to clean a filter. If your equipment will be located away from the house, have a waterline installed during pool construction to make maintenance easier.

Access for Building Equipment. In ground pools, in particular, require the use of heavy equipment. Backhoes, trucks and other heavy equipment all require access into your yard. That means a clearance that’s about 10 feet wide. You should also plan access for the removal or secondary use of any dirt, rocks or debris that is the result of the construction.
Codes may limit water use and may require that you use a specific type of filter.
Building Permits and Building Codes
Arrdev readymade swimming pool do not need any permission in India as these are movable structure and can be shifted as required.
In most cases the permanent structure are considered in building map.
However we always suggest the owner with local authorities.
Your town may require you to apply for a building permit before starting construction on your pool. If you are doing the work yourself, call the building department to find out whether a permit is necessary. If a pool or spa company is handling the job, make sure that the contract states that the builder is responsible for securing all of the necessary permits.

Although procedure may vary from town to town, applying for a permit sets in motion a number of events. First, the building department will review your plans. Later the building inspector may also want to visit the site to make sure that the project complies with zoning laws.

Building codes are complex documents that state minimum construction requirements for people’s safety. They can vary from town to town. Some communities have code requirements for pools and spas, and many address some of the things that may go along with a new one, such as safety fences, decks, patios and electrical work.

A reputable pool company should be familiar with the requirements in your area. But as the homeowner you are responsible for the project. At the very least, discuss the need for permits and code requirements with the contractor before signing the contract. If you are not satisfied, look for another contractor.
Review Local Zoning Laws
Municipalities create zoning laws to control how land is used in a given area. In the broadest sense, they separate residential from industrial and commercial areas. This distinction also means that company X can’t build asphalt plant on your block. But local zoning laws can also affect how you use your own property. Some things to check on while still in the planning stage for your pool or spa include height restrictions for fences and require setbacks (or the distance between your property line and the  structures you want to build).

If your plans don’t comply with local regulations, either make the necessary changes or apply for a zoning variance. Zoning laws are written in very general terms that are open to interpretation for specific projects. The zoning board or commissioner will decide whether to issue the variance or reject the appeal. Ask about your local variance procedure at the building or planning department. Basically, you will need to prove to a zoning board that your plans will not harm your neighbors or encroach on their privacy. The variance process can take time, so it’s best to learn the zoning regulations early. A relaxing in-ground spa is especially enjoyable after an aerobic swim in a lap pool.
Now or Add Later?
Building a pool or spa is a lot like building or renovating a house. You can build or add everything at once, or you can take care of the main area now and add on later.

Here are the items you should including during construction or installation. Some are absolutely necessary, while others are optional or just easier to install at this stage.

 Here are some elements you can add to your pool or spa later:

 Hiring a Pool Builder

Back at the beginning of this chapter you learned that you should think of your new pool as a major remodeling project. Finding a good pool company is much the same as hiring a contractor to an addition to your home or redo your kitchen. The goal here is to find and get bids from at least three companies that you think would a good job.
You can rely on Arrdevpools for best product in best prices.

In-Ground Pools

Concrete (RCC made swimming pools)

Vinyl (Prefabricated Swimming Pools)

These pools are packaged systems. The manufacturer has probably honed and refined the design over the years. And if the installer has worked in the past with the product you select, there should not be any problem with the installation. For most vinyl in-ground pools, the installer does need to backfill the area behind the panels while the pool is filling with water so that the pressure on both sides of the panel remains equal. An experienced crew should be able to install a vinyl pool in about one week. Vinyl pools  alsocoming  in big  number of shapes  The number of liner patterns is endless; most companies offer dozens. You can find everything from solid colors to designs resembling ceramic tile or even round river rock. If you so desired, you could have your initials printed on the liner. The liners themselves are usually 0.5 to 3 millimeters thick and will last about 1 to 10 years.Vinyl pools used to be an inexpensive alternative to any kind of pools.

Smart Tips for Pool & Spa

Tips on Testing

Smart Tip

If you do need to add chemicals, wait to see whether the chemicals have the desired effect. Wait about 15 minutes for liquid chlorine to circulate (with the pump running) and about 12 hours for the pH to adjust.

Adding Chemicals

Most manufacturers print specific instructions for handling pool chemicals. In general, the goal is to get the chemicals circulating throughout the pool without getting any on yourself or areas around the pool. Again,
refer to Chapter 5 for the types of chemicals you will be using.

Granular Products. Whether they are sanitizers, acids, or alkaline materials, granular products should be added directly to the pool and never put into the skimmer for circulation. Most granular products are concentrated, so avoid direct contract. The best way to do this is to mix the required amount with water in a clean bucket used only for that purpose. Slowly pour the mixture at various locations around the pool. Be sure to hold the bucket close to the water so that none splashes on you. Pour around the return inlets (making sure that the circulation system is running). It is also a good idea to add some of the solution to any dead zones, which are areas where the water circulation isn’t active as it is in other areas. Possible dead zones include areas around steps, corners, and alcoves.

You can pour granular sanitizes directly into the water. The problem is that they often take time to dissolve,
so for a time they will be sitting on the bottom of the pool. This could lead to bleaching of some color surfaces.
Liquids. Pour liquid products directly into the pool. Again, hold the container as close as possible to the surface as the water to avoid splashing. Add sanitizers to a variety of spots around the pool, but avoid pouring directly into skimmers.

Tablets. Many homeowners find that 1- to 3- inch tablets are a convenient way to sanitize their pools. Placed in a floating dispenser, the tablets dissolve to add fresh chlorine to the water over a period of time. Be sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Some tablets are so concentrated that the larger versions are not recommended for smaller pools.

There is also a question of safety when using tablets placed in a floater. These are not toys, but they are sure to attract kids – especially a neighbor’s child who may not realize that the floater contains chlorine. If small children will be using the pool, it is best to avoid using floaters containing chlorine.

If you do use them, try to keep the floater from being drawn to the skimmer. As with other chemicals it is best not to add chlorine directly to the skimmer. Tie off a floater to keep it away from the skimmers.

Weekly Maintenance

If you attend to a maintenance routine that is daily or every few days, you will find that the larger tasks that should be performed weekly will go more quickly. If you contract with a pool-cleaning service, in addition to testing and correcting the water chemistry, the company should also perform other important tasks.

Vacuuming. There are two types of pool vacuums. One model attaches to the skimmer and works with the pool’s circulation system to remove dirt from the bottom of the pool. Anything collected by this vacuum is trapped by the pool’s filter. With the other type, water from a garden hose forces the dirt into a collection bag. You remove the bag and the dirt with it. (for more information, see “Automatic Pool Cleaners”, in chapter 4, “Enhancing the Experience – Accessories and Fun Stuff).

If you’re vacuuming to the filter, be sure that all of the suction in the circulation system is concentrated at the skimmer you are using. If you are recall the basic plumbing set up for a typical pool, you’ll remember that the circulation system pulls water through the man floor drain and the skimmer on the side of the pool. Usually the suction created by the pump is about equal for both. But if you are vacuuming, divert all of the pump’s pull to the skimmer. That may mean shutting down the main drain and opening up the skimmer valve completely.

Brushing.Use a special tile brush available at pool supply outlets to clean off the tile above the waterline. It may cot be necessary to do this every week, but plan on doing it at least every two weeks (obviously, more often if necessary). Cleaning of the tile helps remove dirt and, more importantly, algae before it can take hold.
Plan on scrubbing the tiles with the tile brush and tile soap (don’t use household detergent) about once a month during the swimming season. This is a good way to keep ahead of any algae buildup and it also helps remove scale. When you’re scrubbing, reach down to clean just below the waterline because evaporation will force the waterline lower.

Use the above procedure on vinyl and fiberglass pools. Check with the manufacturers but in most cases you can use the tile cleaner you buy at swimming pool supply houses. Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool,
or metal scrapers on these surfaces. They can tear vinyl liners and damage the gel coat finish on fiberglass pools.

In addition, check on the equipment at least once a week. See “Equipment Maintenance”.

Shocking, or super chlorinating

As discussed in Chapter 5, it is necessary to shock the water by periodically adding massive amounts of chlorine. Shocking the water, or super chlorination, deals with the organic contaminants that build up in the pool over time. The contaminants combine with chlorine to form chloramines. It is the chloramines that produce the chlorine smell some people associate with pools. To get rid of the smell you must perform the seemingly contradictory task of adding a larger than normal dose of chlorine. You need to “shock” the water back to normal levels of good chlorine.

So how often is shocking necessary? Well, it depends on whom you ask. Most chemical manufacturers suggest a weekly shock treatment. That may be just the prescription for your pool, but in reality not all pools need a super chlorination treatment on a weekly basis. Pools need a shock treatment when there are large amounts of organic matter such as ammonia and nitrogen in the water. The more often a pool is used and
the heavier the swimmer loads, the more often shock treatments are necessary.

Follow manufacturer’s directions. Add chemicals to various spots around the pool. In most cases, you should keep swimmers out of the pool until the chlorine levels return to normal. Some products suggest adding shock treatments at night so that the pool water can stabilize overnight.

Smart Tips

The actual vacuuming, no matter which type of equipment you use, is fairly straightforward. Slowly work your way around the pool, down the walls, and along the floor. Move at a slow, steady pace. If you move too quickly, the current created by the vacuum head will stir up any dirt on the bottom.
The future of swimming pool filters.

Conventional sand filters


Pipeless filters


Filtration Technology:
Sand layers are formed into the filter with different layers. The surface area is less as the dia of filter decides the surface area not the height of filters

Need big filter and rooms to accommodate them.
Waste space and room.

Filtration technology is cartridge based and the cartridge is fixed length wise with V-shape wounding that gives surface area of 10 sqm.

In 200mm dia and 600mm height we can have 7 sq meter filter surface area which is equivalent to 4000mm dia sand filter.

Sand based Filtration can be efficient up to 40-60 microns

No uniformity in filtration.

Cartridge based filter is having the efficiency of 20 micron. Reputed company makes the cartridge filter. So there is a uniform gradation

That means water into pool will be clearer than sand filter. And uniformity in filtration.

There are five to seven valves to be operated in the filter unit.

Need operator and valve usually need maintenance

No valve or piping.

Easy operation and less maintenance.

AS per ISI standards the flow rate is 15cum/h/m2 max

Need bigger filters to follow ISI.

Comes under ISI standard for flow rates as low flow rate is required

Follow ISI standards with increasing size.

2. Power consumption:
Since the filter unit is far from the pool and there is one meter thick layer in sand filter the higher power and capacity pumps required.

More electricity required and more expense.

Cartridge thickness is 2-3mm and filter is near the swimming pool. so less power pumps required.

1 hp motor pump can work for similar size pool as 5hp pump required in sand filter.
So more savings.

3. Water Wastage:
There are three points, which waste the water daily.
Back wash of filter
Rinse the filter

Around 4% of water and chlorine are wasted daily just to wash the filter.

These filters are design to 0% wastage. Ten pools can be operated with the same quantity of water required in one no of pool with old technology. hence save water and reduce global warming.

Saves 100% water and chemical consumption goes down up to 70%.
in comparison of sand filters.

4. Need for balancing tank, filter room, skimmers or overflow grating plumbing pipes & valves, Nozzles, ladders, lights, chemical dozer etc.

Need structure just to take water to filter and space for filter.

Pipeless filters are small in size and near the pool. So no additional structures are required.

So saves space and cost that is 30% cost saving in comparison of sand filter based filtration system.
Infinity edge pool is possible with these filters.

5. Water Leakage:
We need to put plumbing pipes, electrical conduits into the pool that leads to puncher into RCC wall and floor & after some time  plumbing pipe may be damaged due to ageing or the earthquake or any other reason and possibility of leak even your pool is water proofed properly.

In this system there are multiple chances of water leakage or seepage

There is no puncher into the walls and floor for any thing so there no need to take extra care for waterproofing.
No leakage is possible due to any mechanical or electrical items.

Filter is mounted and no puncher in pool is required. So there is no chance of water leakage today or any time in future.
No concealed parts.

6. In sand based filter the following consultants are required during the process of construction:
Pool Consultant
Plumbing consultant
Electrical Consultant

So the warrantee and guarantee expired till the time of actual usage of swimming pool.

Pipe less filters remove the need of any consultant as no provisions out let inlet or any structures needed.

They can be installed within two days before actual usage of swimming pools.

Any design is possible with sand filters.

No restrictions

Some models are concealed and the designs are such that it looks like ladder and light into pool.

Any design is possible.
