How water drainage affects pool structure design 07/28/2021

How water drainage affects pool structure design

Your plants love the rain, but your pool is less than thrilled about it. That's why it is critical to understand how water drainage affects pool structure design.

Evaluating your yard's water drainage
Construction companies slope yards to make sure water moves into the sewer system. Excess water will run from your backyard to the front yard and into the street gutters.

It's a very efficient system, but planting trees or adding patios can alter the slope, and water may not runoff the way it should.

Soil type also contributes to how well your yard will drain. In Houston, Texas, we have clay soil. Clay is excellent for retaining water, but it can wreak havoc on structures.

Clay expands and cracks when it's dry. Consistent expanding and contracting can cause structural damage, including to a swimming pool base. So, in Houston, our structures have to be able to tolerate continuous soil movement.
What this means for pool structure design
Creating a properly functioning drainage system is the first step to making sure your pool stays healthy. Runoff water flow will affect the surrounding deck structure, while the soil type will affect the pool materials.
Creating deck drainage
When it comes to ensuring the area around your pool drains water effectively, there are many options. Minor remodeling changes or additions to a pool deck design can work wonders.

Sloped decks: We're not talking about making you climb a mountain to get in your pool. An unnoticeable slope in your pool deck can often encourage the majority of rainwater to flow away from your pool.

Deck drains: Plastic and traditional heavy grates can be placed into the deck and allow water to exit the patio and flow out to the front.

Permeable materials: Permeable deck materials suck in water and let it drip down to a sand and gravel layer, where it's taken down for drainage.
Pool materials
Even the best deck drainage systems won't prevent clay soil from expanding and cracking during drought. That's why a contractor should use materials that can handle soil shifts.

Fortunately, materials have come a long way. A gunite pool is the best solution for clay soil because it can withstand clay soil shifting. Further, it's highly versatile, so you can design your pool any way you want.

Hire a professional
Our experts at JR Pool Plastering and Texas Gunite know the best materials, methods, and designs for dealing with poor yard drainage and clay soil. Give us a call today, and we will build your dream pool while simultaneously ensuring rainwater drains away from the pool.

Why is my Pool Losing Water? 07/26/2021

Why is my Pool Losing Water?

The weather can drastically affect your swimming pool. Whether in the summer or winter period, your pool can naturally lose water due to the weather. The heat and humidity can cause your pool to lose up to 2 inches of water per week in the summer! This is something that, as a pool owner, you need to be aware of. If your pool level drops too low, it could cause damage to your pool pumps leading to bigger issues.

With that in mind, it's essential you stay on top of your pool maintenance in the summer months as well as the winter months. Luckily, JR Pools is here to help ensure your pool remains healthy and in great condition for years to come. We have been in the pool business for more than 35 years. As a result, you can rely on our experts whenever you need your pool questions answered.
Why is my Pool Losing Water?
The summer is upon us, and here in Texas, we feel it more than in other places across the US. Additionally, the harsher, humid weather we experience can take a serious toll on our pools. If you're sick of your pool losing water, there are several things you can do to prevent this.

First of all, you can get a solar cover for your swimming pool. These covers are designed to protect your pool against the effects of the weather. Not only will your pool be protected against solar rays and humidity, but also wind and rain.

Although winters are significantly colder than the summer, your pool water can still evaporate all the same. With that in mind, you shouldn't just rely on these methods in the summer; you should adopt these habits all year round to ensure your pool remains in great condition!

The hot summer weather causing your pool water level to drop due to evaporation is just one of many reasons for pool water loss. Over time, pool shells can become incredibly vulnerable and damaged, leading to pool leaks. If you've noticed the amount of water in your pool keeps dropping, call JR Pools today and see how we can help!
Leak Detection
If your pool is suffering from water loss due to a leak, don't wait before calling JR Pools. Our pool experts will be able to find the source of the leak and reverse the damage. We specialize in pool plastering and use the highest-quality products. If you're unsure if your pool level is dropping due to the weather or internal damage, give us a call.

JR Pools can help ensure the longevity and durability of your swimming pool!

Choosing the Right Type of Plaster for your Swimming Pool 07/20/2021

Choosing the Right Type of Plaster for your Swimming Pool

Choosing the Right Type of Plaster for your Swimming Pool can be difficult. There are so many types out there, and swimming pools are a huge investment. With that in mind, you want to make sure you're getting the most bang for your buck. That is why JR Pool Plastering & Texas Gunite Ltd. is here to help!

We have been in the pool business for almost four decades. As such, you can trust we have the knowledge to help answer all of your pool queries. If you're looking to update your pool finish, be sure to contact our expert team and see how we can help.

Choosing the Right Type of Plaster for your Swimming Pool
Plastering your pool isn't just a necessary step in pool construction; it can also add a unique sense of style to your pool. With a plethora of plasters and finishes to choose from, the possibilities are endless! Here at JR Pools, we understand that everybody has their own style and taste. That is why we offer a wide range of finishes to our clients.

So, which plaster type is best suited for your pool?

Longevity and durability are the most important things to consider when choosing a pool finish. This is because the plaster coats the pool shell, meaning it will be submerged in the water. Depending on the chemistry of your pool, it could affect how your plaster performs. Of course, over time, general wear and tear are bound to happen. However, having the right type of plaster will ensure your pool is protected for longer.
Plaster Colors & More
Although it is commonly white in color, pool plaster actually offers a range of color options. In addition to color choices, you also have to consider how you want your pool to look - the finish. As a pool owner, it's only natural you want your pool to look exactly as you envisioned it, and JR Pools is here to help you achieve this.

No matter what pool finishes you're looking for, our team is here to help. We carry a range of specialty products that don't just offer long-lasting protection; they also enhance the appearance of your swimming pool. If you're looking for durability and reliability from a pool plaster, your best choice is the Wet Edge products. These high-quality products have been designed to increase the longevity of your pool shell. Give us a call and ask about our pool plastering services.

Call JR Pools for all your Plastering Needs!
Many people aren't aware that over time, pool plaster can experience wear and tear. When this happens, it leaves your pool shell vulnerable to cracks and leaks. What's more, it can make the surface of your pool incredibly rough. If you've noticed any of these issues, don't wait before calling JR Pools.

We specialize in pool plastering and only use the finest quality products within our services. Call today if you need help Choosing the Right Type of Plaster for your Swimming Pool!

How Does Rain Affect My Pool Installation? 06/30/2021

How Does Rain Affect My Pool Installation?

The summer months are always our most popular pool installation times. This is understandable; who doesn't want a cool and glistening pool waiting for them in the backyard after a long hot summer day? Although summer is the best time to have a pool waiting for you, it doesn't mean it's the best time to have a pool installed. June and July are notably some of the rainiest months in Texas. Therefore, we find ourselves running into many issues with the pool plastering process once the rain has started.
Why is rain bad for my pool?
While the rain can harm the chlorination process, it can also create issues with the plastering process too. Rain will cause streaks, discoloration, and curing mistakes once the plastering has begun. Not only will it cause streaking, but it also causes something called hydrostatic holes in the granite and plaster.

Hydrostatic pressure is a more technical term for water pressure that builds up around the foundation of your plastering. When this happens, it causes hydrostatic holes.

This can also happen with the draining and pressure of an inground pool. Rain causes excavated pool holes, too, causing the walls to collapse downward. While rain certainly doesn't prevent the job from being completed, it only causes delays; it will still affect the overall look of your pool too.

We never work on your pool during ay rainy days as we want your pool to be of the highest quality that it can possibly be.

Rainwater is also very acidic, which means that it will affect the chemistry of your pool water since it has chlorine and other chemicals in it as well. The rain can affect the pH balance of your pool as well as the alkaline levels, which can make the pool unsafe to be in and will cost you plenty more money down the line.
Who are we?
JR pools is a pool building and plastering company that specializes in giving customers quality pools they can't find anywhere else. Moreover, we can also improve the look and function of any pool you already have installed in your home.
