Flume relining & maintenance

There are several different issues that can interfere with flume performance, which is why regular maintenance is so important. As water slides typically experience heavy traffic the surface can deteriorate over time. That’s why at SA Pool Systems we can refurbish your flumes to eliminate problems and create a seamlessly smooth ride with a fresh look and feel. Our system is both hardwearing and flexible, adapting to twists and turns and producing a smooth and watertight ride that will last you for many years. We have experience with flume relining & maintenance, recently working with Carn Brea Leisure Centre

The benefits of the SA Pool flume lining system include:

Flume maintenance is vital to ensure that you are getting the most out of your equipment while also ensuring its lifespan. Here are a few things to look out for to maintain your flumes:

Good Flow

Periodically checking your flume flow is one of the most important parts of pool maintenance. Start by examining your flow ensuring it has the correct velocity as it ensures your flume. The flow should be in a subcritical state so that the device is able to accelerate it to the superficial state. Then go on to check for surging and turbulence as this can interfere with your flumes performance. 

Assess The Flume

Over your flumes lifespan, there are a number of issues that may impact the accuracy of your measurements. Firstly you should ensure that your flume is at the correct level and is in the centre of your flow stream especially if you have outdoor applications where scouring or frost could shift your flume out of place. You can then begin to access the inside of your flumes looking for any signs of damage or corrosion.  

Upstream & Downstream Channel Maintenance 

Finally, you can begin to access your upstream and downstream channels to ensure there aren’t any blockages or debris that could interrupt the flow avoiding blockages.

FAQs about flume relining

Below you will find answers to common questions about swimming pool relining and maintenance.

Q. How often should you reline a flume or pool?

A. Generally speaking, pool liners today have a lifespan of 10-15 years depending on their level of use. There are several factors that can increase or decrease that lifespan these include water balance and the fit of the liner. If you are confused as to whether it is time to change your pool liner, contact us today for a consultation. 

Q. When is the best time to replace the liner?

A. The best time to replace your pool’s liner is in the spring or autumn, as you won’t lose any of those precious summer months when you’re looking to use your pool. Spring is also usually the busiest time of year, which is why it’s important to book early to ensure the process can be completed as efficiently as possible.

Q. How much does it cost to reline your flume?

A. The cost of flume relining depends on the scale of the project. Contact us today to get a quote.
