Blue Haven Explains How Rain and Wind Can Delay Construction of Your Pool

Sydney, NSW – With the recent deluge of rain across the East Coast, Australian pool company Blue Haven Pools have released a guide explaining why rain can delay the construction of your backyard Pool.

In many ways, the early March East Coast deluge has been unprecedented in terms of scale and damage caused. The rain and subsequent flooding has sadly affected many lives, animals and property. For areas not directly impacted by the flooding, they have felt the impact of rising food costs and delays in construction. Pool installation is one such example of construction work that can be delayed by excessive rain.

In many cases, delayed pool construction is longer than the actual weather event. This is due to the fact that it can take time for the ground to dry up after rain. Combine this with the fact that many areas on the East Coast have moisture retaining clay soil, and the result is sometimes significant delays.

The excavation phase of a backyard pool construction is a particularly vulnerable stage of the process. The hole that has been dug for the pool can trap water in its deepest parts, resulting in delays waiting for the water to evaporate. There can also be cave-ins in the walls of the hole that is dug, as the solid becomes too heavy due to the moisture. Matters can also be complicated by nearby soakwells and roof drainage near the construction area.

Wind can wreak havoc at the interior finish stage of the pool construction by drying out the finish quicker than the required time it takes for the finish to strengthen and cure. Wind can also blow unwanted particles onto the finish, such as sand and leaves.

It is inconvenient to the homeowner to experience a delay in the construction of their pool, but the effect can be worse for the construction company conducting the work. This is because of the knock on effect of simultaneous delays across a number of projects. The build up work can result in a delay on your project that is much longer than the weather event.

Understanding how rain and wind can affect the construction of a pool can help homeowners understand why delays are necessary and factor them in. Allowing the full construction process to take place will sometimes require time and patience, but the result is worth the wait with a sound structure and quality finish.
