Activity in swimming pools, particularly diving, can generate high vibration levels in the pool structure. Unless isolated from the building, swimming pools on the upper levels can be a major source of annoyance to all occupants.
The degree of isolation required for a swimming pool varies according to where it sits in the building. A swimming pool over a carpark or concourse, or where diving is not an issue will only require a low or moderate level isolation system. Pools on the upper floors of buildings require a high to very high degree of isolation using spring mountings, and should include access to the mountings for leveling and inspection. The air gap has the added benefit of increasing the isolation performance.
Pool isolation systems are individually designed and should be verified by a specialist acoustical performance to verify fitness for purpose.
