is a simple low-cost method of enclosing your pool. It is
a custom-engineered PVC dome, typically with clear sides
(windows) and an opaque roof (available in various colours
and combinations). The dome is sealed around the edges and
is inflated with a low-pressure regulated air blower. The
system will allow you to simply, quickly and cost-effectively
turn your outdoor pool into an indoor one, giving you full
use of your pool all year round.
is classified as an air supported structure. It must be
anchored to the deck of the pool to hold it in place. The
air needed to support the swimming pool enclosure is supplied
by a blower which is regulated by a "pressure"
switch. This switch turns the blower on when the dome needs
air, and turns it off when the dome achieves optimum pressure.
When the blower is operating, outside air is pumped into
the enclosure. An air seal is created between the pool deck
and the hem of the dome with the use of an 450mm flap. This
flap is "sealed" on the interior perimeter of
the enclosure. The sealing ability is enhanced as the internal
air pressure forces the flap down onto the deck of the pool.
Entry or exit is accomplished through the use of a zippered
entry panel. If an entry is left open for an extended period
of time, excessive air loss will cause the dome to begin
deflation. This process takes a considerable amount of time
on an average dome.
