Fitting seats inside a pool

Recommended Posts

I am currently having a tile pool built.

 

The design from the start was to have two seats in the pool. These are simple columns.

 

The pool is being tiled now. I asked how the seats will be fitted.

 

He says they will drill down into the pool floor and fit metal rod(s) to stop the seats from falling over.

 

I have two questions.

 

1. Will drilling holes cause the pool to leak?

 

2. This will be a salt pool. Will the metal rods get wet and then rust?

 

Many thanks.

Are the seats going to be tiled concrete cubes or something similar?

 

If so they will likely drill holes in the slab (not all the way through) for the seat re-bar cages and concrete the lot, provided they get a good concrete-concrete join nothing is going to leak or rust.

Seats in a swimming pool. Right up there with wooden gazebos when it comes to useful functionality.

The seats will be simple tiled cylinders.

If you saw my pool, you wouldn't be doing laps in it. Too small. More of an oversized jacuzzi haha.

Make them heavy enough that they don't move about and then there's no need to worry about rebar footings and the integrity of tiles or pool floor, no?

I suggest its better & cheaper to make seats separate & just place where you want them.  I think I am correct that water weighs 1 Kg/ltr & 1000 ltr = 1 cubic meter.

If so, thats 1000 kg / mtr3 for water (minor change for salt water).  Concrete weighs over twice that (2400 kg / mtr3), so will sit pretty well on bottom of pool with no rebar attachment.

Can do similar with table, especially if top it above water & has dead weight with no boyancy to counter it.   You can even calculate how strongly they will sit on bottom - how much force it takes to move them.  I suggest 50kg for seats (weight of a bag of cement) & 150 kg for table - stable, taking 3 people to move it.
