Through wall fittings & plumbing

As the walls are built up, various specialist pool fittings which go through the walls need to be incorporated, such as the main drains, inlets, skimmers and underwater lights. Full details of which course of blocks they are laid in and how they are secured can be found in your Summit Leisure pool kit manual. If your pool has a roman end or a square stair feature, this sits on the foundation and needs to be tied in to each course of blocks with steel reinforcing bar as the walls progress, and backfilled carefully.

When all the through wall fittings are securely concreted in to the pool walls and the mortar has hardened and cured, the ABS pipework can be plumbed to each of the fittings and the various pipelines and any cables are plumbed back to where the plant room will be. Vertical pipe stubs should be left protruding around 18″ above the finished floor level in the plant room and taped off while the pipework adhesive in the joints hardens. It’s also a good idea to mark which pipe and cable goes to which pool fittings.
