Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
27. Work continues on Naturist Legacy Park's new swimming pool
The Urban Life
crew was now ready to being assembling the plumbing and mechanical equipment
for the new pool (see the Pool
). As these pictures attest, this was no small thing! The
concrete equipment pad was quickly filled with a pump, filter, chlorine
feeder, heater and all sorts of piping that included no less than sixteen
valves! The trench between the equipment pad and pool quickly turned into
a "spaghetti factory" of rigid and flexible white pipes. Two main drains
were plumbed into the bottom of the pool while connections were added to
the pool walls for skimmers and return lines. With the plumbing in place,
attention turned to the final preparation of the pool bottom. Fine sand
would typically be trucked in for this step but our own previously excavated
sand proved quite suitable for the purpose. Once sloping, smoothing and
packing was complete, it was all hands on deck for installing the new pool
liner. A blower was used to evacuate air from between the pool wall and
liner as water began to slowly fill the pool. The main drains were cut
into the liner before the water got too deep. The skimmers and returns
would be cut in after the pool was full. We promptly completed the chain
link fence so that access to the pool could be controlled. CJ Electric
Ltd. of Beausejour
had by this time been on site to wire the pool equipment and connect it
to power. It didn't take long for the new pool filter to clear the greenish
tint from the water.
