read this before buying a pool enclosure - access point enclosure
Is your pool in a sheltered environment or is it completely exposed to elements?
This may affect the type of pool enclosure you decide to purchase.
If your pool is in an open area, or the fence may be affected by strong winds, consider a low-key fence, or a fence that is fixed to the ground through a track. 2.
How is your swimming pool?
Around your pool (
Paving or paving)
In good condition?
Level and solid?
In order for the pool enclosure to work easily and efficiently, your decking should be as smooth as possible, and it should be fairly smooth, especially if you don't have a tracking system.
It doesn't matter if you choose a tracking system.
However, if the surrounding environment is particularly uneven, you may need to consider fixing a level boarding or platform to balance it.
The smoother around the pool, the easier it is to operate the fence. 3.
What are the edges around your pool?
If your top stone rises above the surrounding pool area, you need to take this into account when measuring the pool for the fence.
This also applies if you have a raised lip around your pool.
In general, if space is limited, a lot of people want the fence to be as close to the pool as possible, so any measurements need to exceed the raised copper sheet by at least 10 cm to make sure the enclosure clears them. 4.
Do you have a case for tracking or no tracking? This is usually the most difficult decision when choosing the pool enclosure.
From the user's point of view, the fundamental difference between the two is the ease of operation.
The tracking enclosure can be opened and closed easily and quickly with just one person, while the tracking-free enclosure usually takes two people.
This is due to the need to push the Enclosure module into or evenly pull both sides in order to avoid the entire enclosure moving offline. 5.
Have you considered the plan with your neighbor?
Another key purchase decision for the pool enclosure is the overall height of the enclosure.
This is driven to some extent by aesthetic and practical factors.
Whether it's for yourself or for your neighbors, the low-key pool housing is clearly not that intrusive visually.
And planning permission is generally not required.
Although it is still worth notifying your local planning office to make sure you get the correct approval.
The benefit of the full height enclosure is that you can walk around the pool even if the enclosure is open, but planning permission may be required.
In addition to this, there are obvious budget problems, the cost of the full-height housing is about twice that of the low-key housing. 6.
Is delivery and installation accessible to your pool?
Another often overlooked aspect of the pool housing is delivery and installation.
You need to consider how easy it is to send the enclosure to your pool side, and also, how much space does the installation team have to install the enclosure.
Many low-key enclosures are now almost flat-packed, so there is usually no problem with access.
However, for larger enclosures, it is common for a single module to be assembled, so more space is needed. 7.
Can you also maintain your pool easily?
When planning the location of the pool enclosure, you need to remember that you still want to have easy access to the filter cover or lighting point.
This is especially true if you plan to track the system, and your measurements need to take these access points into account.
