Hyatt Regency Swimming Pool gets a fresh look!
Hyatt Stay Fit Pool Renovation
The original pool was built in the 90s and is on the 2nd floor with retail below. It was originally built as an athletic club with a rim flow gutter using a product call Swim Out grating. The grating is now discontinued and it was discolored and warped. The pool had been re-plastered 3 times and the tile racing had been re-tiled twice. This pool did not have the gutter sealed and it leaked from day one. The pool was drained and when we pulled of the main drain VGB covers the outlets were plugged with plaster sand. Also the VGB main drains had never been reviewed by the county health department.
What did WMS Aquatics do?
WMS Aquatics job was to design the replacement of the gutter grating and hand hold, install racing lane anchors, re-level the pool that was out of level by 3/4", hammer test the old plaster, patch the areas removed, and apply a seal coat over the plaster then apply 2 coats 15 mils. thick of Ecopoxy in the pool and gutter. The general contractor GLY removed all the deck tile and deck drain to find out the deck and deck drain were both leaking. GLY then asked us to apply two coats of Ecopoxy on the deck and up 6" up the wall. So the pool/gutter/and deck were waterproof. GLY then tiled the decks and install new Stegmeier Frontier deck drain. WMS Aquatics supplied the deck drain and set the drain in the Ecopoxy to seal around the deck drain. Part of WMS Aquatics work was to replace an existing filter, remove all the sand in all three filters, remove the multiport valve then replace them with the new Pentair FullFloXF Backwash Valve. WMS Aquatic also replaced an old cast iron 5hp pump with a new Pentair WhisperfloeXF 5hp with VFD. Then WMS installed AccuTab 1030 feeder and installed Leveler automatic fill. This pool is now finished and the pool is leveled to 1/16 of inch and the pool/gutter/deck do not leak. The new Leveler auto fill maintains level and the new 5hp pump VFD runs at only 1650 RPM at 180 GPM design flow instead of 3450 RPM to save energy. This project took 3 months to complete and most of the work had to be done from 9:30 PM until 2:30 AM to not interfere with building businesses and retail.
