Have you heard of polystyrene pools? Would you like to embark on a low-cost swimming pool project? Discover the polystyrene pool kit, our recommendation for a good-quality, low-cost pool. How does it work? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Everything you need to know about the polystyrene pool can be found in this article.

How does a polystyrene pool work?

The polystyrene swimming pool is a kit for in-ground installation, and is very quick to install, since it’s based on a system of assembling different blocks. Unlike concrete pools, the walls of polystyrene pools are lighter and higher. The result? Fewer blocks to assemble for much faster installation!

A polystyrene pool kit generally consists of :
– Staggered polystyrene blocks to form pond walls
– A filtration unit
– Skimmers to ensure water filtration
– A liner and all the elements required for connection

Thanks to their ease of assembly, polystyrene swimming pool kits are winning over more and more homeowners, who are starting to install them themselves.
However, we recommend that you call in a professional for a reliable pool with a long-term guarantee.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of polystyrene pool kits?

Before embarking on yourpolystyrene pool installation project, it’s important to know all the advantages and disadvantages of such equipment. We’ll help you make sense of it all.

The benefits

In addition to its ease of installation and assembly, the polystyrene pool kit offers a number of advantages:
– Polystyrene is easily malleable, so there are many different pool shapes to choose from.
– It offers excellent thermal insulation and pressure resistance
