Why The Right Pool Grates Matter

PVC pool gutter grating is an ideal option for many commercial pools, but there are a number of different options, and choosing the right kind is important. Let’s look at how the wrong grating can lead to premature failure, resulting in dangerous conditions. Pool grates are an important part of your aquatic facility design and it's worth planning to ensure performance you can count on it to perform.

If you have existing pool grating with U.S. Pat. # 4483025, you may already have a higher risk for experiencing damage, as seen in the photo above. Pool grating with this patent number seems to have an increased rate of breaking or snapping, creating potentially dangerous sharp pieces or edges. If you think that you have this brittle grating around your pool, it’s time to look at upgrading to pool grating that will increase safety and efficiency.

Above is a photo of some ill-fitting grating that we encountered on a recent renovation project. While not brittle and dangerous, it clearly doesn't fit and mesh with the corners of the pool the way that it should. In this case it isn’t just the aesthetic appeal of the pool edge that suffers; the overall efficiency of the overflow system is compromised.

Above you can see how much of an improvement some custom corners make. The new grates fit perfectly and are specially formed to encourage water to flow into the gutter. This project utilized our DuraTech™ line of interlocking PVC grating. It can easily handle the curves, corners, and varying heights often found on pool gutters. DuraTech is also textured to increase security at the pool edge and is certified slip-resistant.
