Beach entry real sand bottom pool

Postby Tekcht » Thu 25 Sep, 2014 06:29

I havd a project to build in a sand bottom pool with a "Sand beach" area, beach entry and sand throughout the bottom of the pool- like an artificial beach.

I have seen this done at hotels in some locations (Disney Beach club resort, le meridien Tahiti, Waipouli beach resort, tahiti village resort vegas ... ) but wondering if anyone has personally had experience with them.

I have looked online but there does not seem to be much information on this type of pools.
I am wondering which sand is used in thses pools (silica, pool filter sand, i beleive it should be heavy white sand in order to remain at the bottom and not hirt the filstration system?) how to clean/wash the sand in the bottom of the pool ? Is ther any kind of autonomous robot that would be able to clean/wash the sand ?

Any input would be great. Thanks! :thumbup:

I would love to know if you built this pool and how it went. I think a sand bottom pool would be perfect although I don't ever remember seeing one. :D
