Specialist advice on the pool tank design for residents’ rooftop swimming pool. Design of the pool water treatment system and recessed motorised pool cover.

The water treatment system design incorporated PAC flocculation, medium rate filtration on sand media beds, photo-oxidation using ultraviolet for excellent water quality, heating, pH control and residual disinfection control using chlorine, all housed within a rooftop plantroom. Equipment was designed to fit into the ground floor to rooftop lift for ease of future maintenance and lifecycle replacement.

The pool tank design incorporated a glass bottom with concrete walls lined with a tiled waterproof rubber butyl tanking system which was specially interfaced with the glazing support steelwork and all pool fittings, inlets, outlets, lighting and pool cover cave.
