An important step in the construction of the pool is its final finish, which ultimately depends on the quality of the work performed.After alignment of the walls to perfectly smooth state, stripping the cup from the remnants of mortar and dust and waterproofing checks you can start decorating.With the development of modern industry, a lot of building supermarkets offer materials for finishing pools, each owner can choose what will fit perfectly into the created image of home 'lake'.

Finish pool tiles
Of course, the most popular material, which trim such facilities isceramic tile.To decorate the pools using a tile made of finely porous ceramic mass annealed in a furnace at high temperature.Ready-made tile has excellent resistance to frost and temperature changes, zero water absorption and resistance to abrasion.And it easily withstan
Choosing ceramic tiles for cladding the outside of the pool, you should pay attention to the surface.Too smooth ceramic in contact with water it can be too slippery, which can be very dangerous.Typically, glazed tiles are used for finishing of the pool, it looks very impressive in the sun or artificial light.Ceramics with anti-slip coating is laid around the pool, especially near the approaches to the stairs and into the water on the slopes.
tiling, a special elastic adhesive having a high adhesion, is not less than 1 MPa.Application of elastic adhesive allows you to remove the internal stresses arising between the concrete base and the tile under the influence of water pressure and significantly increases the service life of the pool.In order to properly and uniformly apply the adhesive to the surface waterproofing should be used with trowel notch size corresponds to the size of laying tile.The tiles should be laid on the adhesive.It is important to keep a distance between joints, using for this purpose special devices - tic.Once fully cured adhesive can start grouting and sealing joints.
Finish pool mosaic
As a rule, used glass mosaic swimming pool, absolutely do not absorb water and having a beautiful appearance.
Finish pool mosaic comes on the same technology as the tiles.The only difference may be the fact that the elastic adhesive for mosaics should be chosen with the adhesion of 2.5 MPa.Before finishing the pool is necessary to pull the cords beacons, allowing laid mosaic with high accuracy.If the pool will have some kind of pattern or ornament should start laying the mosaics from the middle of the cup, moving to the edges.This is done in order to incised tiles to be used in any case, it is not visible and do not spoil the overall appearance.Every component of the mosaic detail, putting on a solution, slightly rap wide spatula or use a special rubber float.To ease the painstaking task of laying mosaic of small elements, modern manufacturers offer a mosaic is glued onto the sheets.After laying of the adhesive sheet, the paper is moistened and it is easily removed, leaving behind a beautiful, perfectly flat surface.
After facing mosaics and complete curing of the adhesive solution, proceed to grouting waterproof antibacterial grout, which are selected according to the colors laid mosaic.Grout can be combined with the color mosaic, or vice versa, in sharp contrast with her, giving interesting accents created compositions.
Send all the splendor of colors and implement the most complex artistic designs will Smalt, which has more than two thousand years adorn the walls of various churches.The finest patterns and amazing panels of glazes, arabesques and mosaics made of this material will adorn the pool.This material has the effect of depth and inner glow, creating a flicker and play of colors.Smalt is very durable, well tolerated temperature changes and resists aggressive external factors.
Finishing pools film - liner
The easiest and cheapest way to finish the pool is to use a special film, which is also called liner.But it is worth noting that the PVC film is not intended for outdoor pools, as the life of her small and is about 7 years.
Film pool consists of 4 layers and the total thickness of less than 1.5 mm.The composition of PVC film are high-strength synthetic materials such as Kevlar and poliesterol that can withstand prolonged exposure to chemicals and UV radiation.The film surface can be easily cleaned of dirt and always has an attractive appearance.Moreover, the film contains no substances promoting the development of various fungi and other microorganisms, which is an advantage.Species such a film a few: it can be either smooth or corrugated.
before laying must be carefully sanded all surfaces, which will fit PVC film.Otherwise, the finish of the pool will be short-lived: in places where irregularities remain, the film quickly rub.INTERIOR TRIM start with mounting the mounting band around the perimeter of the pool, and it is attached plastic film.Next, put a pad of geotextile, having a thickness of 10 mm, which will prevent the film from condensation underneath and mechanical damage.During the installation of the film does not use any adhesives, she clings bowl inside, clinging to the walls of the pool filled with water.The edges of the PVC film combined with hot air, and then, for each of the sealing overwritten welded seams liquid plastic.
film also used in the renovation of old pools with defective waterproofing of cracks or substandard tiles.After leveling and grouting of cracks and potholes film is placed directly on the tile.Just before the procedure is necessary to ensure that the tiles under the film starts to peel off and will not damage the new cover.
Finish pool with marble and granite
Since ancient times, our ancestors used the granite and marble as finishing materials for their baths and pools.Granite has a high strength and durability, and the marble can give the impression of weightlessness, his brilliance and perfectly smooth surface.Unfortunately, these natural materials are not as practical and as of today, and little used to trim the vessel where water is always present.
extraordinary smoothness of the marble and granite can play havoc with a swimming pool - in contact with the surface of the materials moisture, they become a real ice rink and even a special anti-slip shoes slightly helps to cope with this drawback.And hiking in the pool may result in a trip to the hospital.Marble, among others, under the influence of aggressive chemicals contained in water, over time, lose its beauty and become a delicate exfoliating and gypsum.Therefore interior pools natural materials is only possible when there is no permanent contact of marble and granite with water.Typically, they are used for walls in the rooms where the pool is located.Marble and granite have a rich color palette and perfectly fit into the interior of the pool.
process of laying of natural materials similar to laying ceramic tiles and mosaics.After tiling must always carry out grouting waterproofing materials for protection against moisture inside of the granite and marble.In case of insufficient sealing of joints over time can begin the destruction of coating materials.
most common methods of finishing basins considered tiling and mosaics.It is a durable material, allowing you to create very beautiful surface of the water - a panel.Though this method is the most expensive and long, the result is worth it!It is important to remember that the tile and liner can be installed both on the street and in the room, but only in a mosaic indoor pool.Otherwise, under the influence of temperature changes mosaic elements may begin to fall away.For swimming pools, tiled, once in several years carried out joint-sealing.
If you use these tips for finishing the pool, it is sure to become a masterpiece of hydraulic engineering, not only in terms of functionality, but also from an aesthetic point of view.Such a structure makes any territory and is a favorite for the whole family.
