Swimming Pools Are Getting a Major Update

An Innovative Answer to Age-Old Design Issues

For decades, swimming pools have stayed consistent in terms of materials and structural design. But as the technology has remained largely the same, unfortunately so have common issues including rusting, cracking, and sagging.

But that’s all about to change.

The structural engineers at HH Consulting have created a remarkable solution that’s stronger, more sustainable, and cost-effective.

Issues We Know Too Well

Cracks caused by soil settlement and concrete that wasn't properly reinforced.

Weak-Spots as rebar hits the soil, causing damage from unreinforced concrete.

Rust & Corrosion from rebar lying in the dirt and further corroding due to moisture.

Why Does This Happen?

For starters, traditional swimming pool design uses small, concrete blocks called dobies to hold rebar in place as concrete dries. Due to common practices during the construction phase, dobies can tip over causing rebar to hit the soil and rust.

Additionally, old techniques involving rebar where the pool slopes create another list of potential structural problems.

For a more detailed guide on older methods and how our solution solves problems, check out our presentation.

Our Solution for the Ages

HH Consulting's structural engineers have created a proprietary engineering design that’s poised to revolutionize the structure of swimming pools. Using patented structural domes made from 100% recycled plastic, our design removes the need for dobies altogether and ensures rebar never touches the soil.

What does this all mean for you? It means customers will be even happier with the products you supply.

Take a Sneak Peek

This pioneering design is possible thanks to our partnership with CUPOLEX, the manufacturers of a patented concrete forming system.
