What to Do for a Better Pool Deck


When you're building or renovating a commercial pool, the design is everything. Are you putting the same amount of time into the design of your pool deck? If you ignore crucial design elements, you could set yourself up for problems that come with expensive price tags and can even be downright dangerous. Yet having a better pool deck is possible with the right design and the right products.



Remove Standing Water with a Deck Drain


Installing a deck drain will solve the problem of standing water in areas where water would otherwise collect. The drain funnels water off the pool deck, keeping the deck dry and reducing the chance for dangerous slip-and-fall accidents to occur due to slick conditions. The deck drain we use comes from our DuraTech™ line and is designed with tough and textured PVC grating which will stand up to the wear-and-tear that comes from being part of the pool deck. Excess standing water also increases the exposure and wear on your deck itself, so by removing the water, you'll help keep your pool deck in better shape. Installing a deck drain during new construction is a great way to create a better pool deck from the beginning. If you have noticed standing water or areas that aren't draining on your existing pool deck and have a renovation planned, that's an ideal time to discuss the options for installing a deck drain if your design plans allow.


Choose a Different Deck Surface


Just because something is common doesn't mean it's the best choice for every facility. Concrete pool decks are everywhere, but not without their problems. They can fade, crack, and chip– causing potential dangerous areas for your guests. Concrete pool decks are also notoriously slick when wet, which can be minimized with a deck drain – but will still occur closest to the pool. Many pool decks will also end up with unsightly and unhygienic organic growth due to the high moisture of the pool environment. Choosing a different deck surface can add a new appeal and a safer experience for your pool guests. We recommend a total encapsulation product like RecDeck™ PVC recreational flooring. Unlike coatings that flake off and have to be reapplied, RecDeck fully encapsulates your deck in a thick, watertight layer of PVC. RecDeck won't flake or peel, and is fully colorfast, which makes it ideal for both indoor or outdoor usage. One of the best features of this type of flooring is that it is highly textured; it provides greater traction and stability even when wet. Thanks to its unique and specific formulation, RecDeck resists mold and fungal growth as well as fading – so it will keep its appeal while it performs. For centers looking for an even greater level of protection, we have even employed an over-foam installation in which RecDeck is installed over cushioning safety foam. If you don't want to commit to an entire pool deck, you can also choose to make entry/exit points safer by installing RecDeck at the water's edge where guests enter and leave the pool.




By taking these simple steps, you can dramatically improve both the look and safety of your pool deck. Get rid of standing water with a deck drain and consider installing a better pool decking surface. You will have a more attractive and safer pool that guests will appreciate.
