Thursday Pools has received a patent for its Backfill Eliminator that eliminates the need to perform traditional backfilling on fibreglass pools with large tanning ledges.

The system provides a sturdy, level installation of large tanning ledges that have traditionally been a challenge for installers to backfill properly, as a compromised backfill will shift and settle, whereby creating a void that can weaken the structural integrity of the tanning ledge.

To solve this problem, the product is specially integrated into the bottom of the pool’s structure, and includes a system that allows groundwater to flow freely preventing water accumulation under the pool to ensure it does not lift the pool.

The Backfill Eliminator also features an access point into which pool installers can easily reach plumbing and wiring.
