Pool Surrounds Technical Information
Haddonstone pool surrounds are available in numerous combinations of kerb, vase and plinth sections to suit individual requirements. There are six standard sizes: HALF SMALL, SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE, EXTRA LARGE and EXTRA EXTRA LARGE.
Straight pool components, including corners, are also available: TS Tech Sheet No. P60 & P50
The vase section, which is in the shape of a conch shell, flanked by two dolphins, is supported by a base decorated with palmettes and scrolls. It can be used as a fountain, a planter, or both.
The kerb section has a continuous moulding enriched with ovolo and palmette designs. The plinth lends appeal to the overall appearance of the pool, raising it from ground level. Tech Sheets for pool assembly and recommended plumbing layout drawings are available on request. Plumbing Tech Sheets are:
TS Tech Sheet No. P42 for Half Small Pool
TS Tech Sheet No. P12 & P41 for Small Pool
TS Tech Sheet No. P11 & P12 for M, L, XL & XXL
Glass fibre pool liners are available for the Half Small and Small pools only. Larger pools should be lined with a waterproofed render. Both are shown as typical sections, see below. Alternatively butyl liners may be used.
Please note that the use of a shallow liner in a Small or Half Small pool precludes the plumbing of vases. A plinth course is required to allow the use of a shallow liner.
Typical average weights:
Kerb sections: 31kg (68 lb)
Vase sections: 40kg (88 lb)
Kerb plinth: 31kg (68 lb)
Vase plinth: 50kg (110 lb)
Simple precautions should be taken to avoid frost damage to fountains. Water should be drained off before winter every year and not replaced until spring when any risk of hard frost has passed.
