Learn the elements of hydraulics, soils, foundations, electrical connections, controls, and mechanical design. By examining these important considerations, you will be able to communicate them effectively – creating confidence and building trust from your customers.
This module introduces basic hydraulic considerations and provides the student with a series of construction details. It is not designed to enable students to complete TDH analysis or design complicated systems. It also does not address gravity systems or water-in-transit systems such as vanishing edges and slot-edges. The primary focus is construction considerations of basic pools and spas. .

Hydraulic engineering cannot be explained in 4 hours and neither can proper plumbing methods. However, this program provides a good start by providing an overview of the design and engineering process as well as a good list of best practices for everything from layout to assembly to pressure testing. It is not a prerequisite for E101 or E211 but it does combine some elements of all three programs to provide an excellent introduction to pool hydraulics and plumbing..

In the field, the correct do’s and don’ts of a project are the difference between a properly built vessel and a failure that equates to wasted time and money. This program breaks down the engineering portions of a project with a checklist detailed from years of in-the-field experience. From plans and soils reporting to waterproofing and compressive strengths, students will leave with high-level information to easily relay these tips to your team.

Long after the pool is built and the excitement of this beautiful new addition to their home is completed the client is left with one on-going issue: water quality. No matter how beautiful the water feature is, if the water quality is poor the experience is greatly diminished. Learn how to improve water quality and prevent recreational water illnesses while simultaneously reducing the chlorine and pH chemicals in the water. Provide your client with the best possible water quality for a long-term satisfied customer.
Codes and standards come at us from all sides, it seems, and every year or so those codes and standards are updated creating a feeling of being lost in the woods for contractors, designers, enforcement and permitting agencies. In this course, we’ll differentiate between codes, standards, and ordinances. Examine what these documents require of all parties affected by them and conclude with providing background and intent on the provisions within these documents.
