Swimming pool construction costs

There are several factors that affect the components of work execution, such as excavation work, base work and reinforced concrete walls, surface coating finishing work, mechanical work on pumps, pipelines, and electricity.
Roughly speaking, swimming pool work costs around Rp. 5 million per square meter of pool, so if 18 square meters will cost around Rp. 100 million. the price of Rp. 5 million is with standard or middle-class material specifications.
The distribution of funding is approximately 10 percent for excavation, 30 percent for reinforced concrete, 35 percent for finishing, 25 percent for mechanical and electrical.

Swimming pool maintenance

Technically, the effort to make the walls and bottom of the pool not leaking is to use watertight concrete, which is concrete that is given special additives to produce watertight concrete.
After that, for additional protection, generally a waterproof layer will be attached to the inner surface of the swimming pool wall. There are several types of waterproofing coatings, they can be applied liquid or heat-adhesive sheets. This waterproof layer will be protected with plaster, then covered with finishing. Meanwhile, for operation and maintenance, the pipeline network must provide water filtering and drainage facilities so that water is constantly exchanged through the pump, piping and water treatment systems. If this system is working properly, replacement and draining can be done less often, so that water is not wasted.
