Tips to install above-ground pools

Currently, many models of pools exist in the market, these vary according to the material with which they are made, the height or depth they possess and even the accessories with which they are equipped. The above-ground pools require a much simpler installation process than the conventional ones, there are some composed of tubes or pieces that can be assembled and other inflatable ones, however, there is a series of advices that are recommended to follow at the time of doing it.

The first step that must be carried out before performing this process is the verification of the land. The ground must be level, that is to say, it must not have any type of undulations since this would generate more depth in some areas of the pool and may even alter its structure. In addition, check that there are no elements such as rocks or tree roots that can damage the lower part of the structure. Also, it must be verified if the soil is strong enough to support the weight generated by the pool full of water, since a weak ground may subside and this would be harmful.

Location is another factor that must be given due attention. While this type of pool has the advantage of being able to be installed in spaces much smaller than those required by conventional pools, it must be taken into account that they are designed for specific types of environments. It is best to place them in sunny areas such as gardens or terraces. It is not advisable to install them in enclosed and small spaces such as balconies since they are generally built for wide and open spaces.

It is also recommended to install the pool near an electrical outlet. This is due to the fact that, since they are not large installations with included cleaning systems, we must purchase accessories that support the maintenance work, especially in large pools. To avoid emptying the pool every time the water is dirty, it is recommended to use small scrubbers, pool cleaners and filters or chlorinators that can be easily connected to the electrical network and can be used in pools without problems.

The fact that the pool is located near a water intake is another point of great importance as this will allow it to be filled much more quickly and easily. It must be remembered that they do not have a filling and emptying system like the conventional ones, so this process must be carried out manually. In the market, there are several types of hoses that can be very helpful when directing water to the pool, but the closer the water connection is; the easier it will be to fill.

If you plan to install the pool in the garden, be careful with the presence of trees and place it away from them as they can release leaves or some other type of waste that would soil the water. There are also covers that are placed on the pool to prevent it from getting some kind of dirty while it is not in use but it is not recommended to have the pool covered for a long time as this can generate the accumulation of bacteria.

Types of RVs

Most people enjoy traveling or camping in RVs, these vehicles are able to bring whole families providing the comfort they can find in spaces very similar to those of their homes. Their main characteristic is that they are usually equipped with devices that allow us to carry out daily activities during the period of time that it takes us to travel the route to reach our destination, or simply to enjoy the RV itself.

We usually think that there is just an RV and that’s it but the reality is that we have a categorization that divides the types of RVs into classes. But, before mentioning them, it is important to understand the different kinds of recreational vehicles that exist. First of all, we have the motorhomes; they are self-propelled RVs which have spaces that offers sleeping and also living accommodation. They are larger than other types of RVs and its main purpose is to provide comfort to the users.

On the other hand, we have campervans, also known as caravanette. It describes a vehicle whose central objective is to give both transportation and accommodation. The principal difference between the motorhomes and these ones is that the latter is smaller and it is focused on giving low cost and easy transport while the former is made with the intention of offering more comfort.

Finally, we have caravans, also known as travel trailer, towed trailer or camper. It is a space towed behind a vehicle that offers a place where the user can rest. This kind of RVs is specially designed for people who love to travel in large trips but do not like to spend the night at hotels. They are similar to tents but they are widely safer than the former.

Following these general lines, we have the classes in which each type of them is divided. It should be noted that the determinant characteristics of recreational vehicles are summarized in their size and the level of comfort that can offer the user, for that reason, these aspects are the most important to consider when choosing a model. The RVs classes are the next ones:

  • Class A: Those are the largest in the market. They are, literally, houses on wheels that come equipped with all the accessories and spaces that are needed. They are designed for large families in order to provide maximum comfort possible, their size allows them to accommodate large appliances such as king-size beds and even washing machines or dryers. They require a greater amount of energy than other types and are perfect for the installation of solar panel systems.
  • Class B: This model represents the smallest vehicles on the category. They are focused, especially, on the conveyance, with the aim of making it much faster, simpler and cheaper. Their space is small, but they can offer amenities such as a bed or bathroom area; but, of course, without the luxuries of class A RVs.
  • Class C: This model is the medium size one. Many people prefer them because they are not as large as those of class A nor as small as those of class B, which offers advantageous features of both models. They have rooms for sleeping and even bathrooms that, unlike those of class B, are separated, although they are much smaller than those of class A.

Remember that mobile homes are vehicles or spaces in which we will spend a lot of time so we must equip them as best we can, for this; there are many implements such as generators for RVs or energy inverters that will allow us to make the most of our resources.
