Ideas for pool equipment enclosure
This article is for you if you’ve ever wanted to build a custom pool sheds.
Enclosures for pool equipment not only conceal your large, unsightly pool filter, but also protect it from rain, snow, and damage caused by strong winds and tree branches.
First and foremost, you are not required to enclose your pool equipment (pump, filter, and heater). Many people conceal it with vegetation or a small fence to keep it hidden. Pool equipment is made to be used outside. It is not necessary to cover it if it is properly maintained and winterized at the time of pool closure.
Some individuals want to enclose their equipment for the following reasons:
- Wind and weather protection
- To not be able to hear the equipment • to not be able to see the equipment • to have more storage space
Pool equipment enclosures are divided into three categories: walls, boxes, and homes.
Pool equipment can be hidden behind walls
The easiest approach to conceal your pool pump and filter is to erect a small wall or screen to prevent the view as well as the pump’s noise.
You may make your own pool filter screen to cover the pool pump if you are adept with wood, or you can purchase vinyl privacy walls at most home shops and garden centers. Hire a carpenter to handle everything for you as a third alternative!
Pool equipment can be hidden behind screens
Vinyl resin is used to make the majority of privacy screens available at home improvement stores. There are several benefits of using prefabricated vinyl fence panels:
- Low-cost and simple to set up. The bottoms of most privacy screens include stake-like legs that fasten the screen panels into the ground for support. Steel bolts link sectional and modular panels, which may be slanted into a variety of orientations.
- Resistant to all forms of weather. Vinyl does not fade in the sun and does not rust in the rain, snow, or ice, so these enclosures will last a long time. When the panels get filthy, a simple shower with the garden hose typically suffices.
When it comes to shape, function, and materials, the sky is the limit when it comes to building your own pool filtration enclosure.
You have a variety of materials to pick from, including glass, steel, wood, concrete, and vinyl. And how many sides are there? Pool equipment displays may be one, two, three, or four sided.
A roof adds another degree of complication to a pool equipment enclosure, and it may not be as beautiful as a two- or three-sided tall wall. It’s easier to build, and tall folks like myself don’t have to worry about headroom.
- Wood – Whether it’s natural wood, stained, painted, saved from a collapsing barn, or recycled from another project, wood elicits an emotional reaction, and it nearly always blends in with any outdoor setting, regardless of building type.
- Constructive – Constructing concrete walls requires a lot of skill and particular tools, but if you know how to make a concrete enclosure, you’ll have a distinctive, one-of-a-kind, and very durable enclosure that can also protect your pool equipment during the winter. Remember to apply sealant if you pick concrete since it is porous and enables water to permeate. You may also use stained or tinted concrete, as well as paint a cement wall in any colour or pattern.
