The BuildBlock ICF Swimming Pool Construction Manual
BuildBlock is proud to release the ICF Swimming Pool Construction Manual. Paired with our Swimming Pool Engineering Manual, this new document covers the ICF pool building process from start to finish. ICFs swimming pools are not only faster to build, but the insulating foam prevents more than 80% of the heat loss of the pool. This means it’s much cheaper to heat your pool, but also increases the length of the pool season.
BuildBlock Insulating Concrete Forms are an excellent product to use to build a swimming pool. The simplicity of the forming system allows you to build a structurally sound pool that benefits from added thermal insulation. You will be able to extend your swimming season, reduce energy costs for heated pools, and lower overall maintenance costs. BuildBlock ICFs can be used for any size pool or design and create a cost-effective and time-efficient solution for pool construction.
BuildBlock has invested significant time and resources to help you design and build a high-quality ICF pool. We have taken the time to create prescriptive engineering that provides a framework for below and above grade pool applications. The engineering tables in this manual provide a wealth of knowledge and create peace of mind knowing your pool will be strong and durable.
We created this manual in conjunction with building a test pool. This allowed us to test multiple accessory products and installation methods. We want to share our experiences and best practices in this guide.
We hope that this manual will help you build a superior pool that you can enjoy for years to come.
