This is a complete detailed structural CAD drawing of a skimmer type Swimming Pool Retaining Wall, taken from real life projects. It can be imported into any pool structural design project and used as a standard reinforcement detailing for construction.

Skimmer type pools are pools which use skimmer wall filtrations and the water level is lower than the pool wall and coping. Skimmers are installed on walls to collect the water and all other floating debris which are collected in a simmer basket inside the skimmer. Water is filtered through the pool filtration system and pumped into the pool again. Usually, a pool needs to filter all of the water volume every 4 hours.

Skimmer type pools do not need a balancing tank and are usually cheaper than overflow and infinity pools and that is why they are the most common type of pools especially in private residential installations.

Comprehensive Detailing

This highly detailed construction drawing is one of the most valuable and essential tool you will need when designing with reinforced concrete pool structures to help you save valuable time with every project.

Calculations for the needed reinforcement and retaining wall thickness were carried out for pool water depths of around 130-140cm. For shallower pools, the reinforcement could be reduced to the minimum reinforcement.
