Is your moving floor adjusted correctly?

Swimming pool moving floors need to be adjusted on a regular basis to ensure they move correctly.

If the floor is too tight to the wall it can put excess pressure on the wall and damage or loosen the tiles.  Most floors are made of a chassis of stainless steel over-laid with plastic, so the floor itself could become worn if it rubs against the wall.

Tiles are also at risk of popping off if the floor hits them whilst on the move.

Damage caused by the floor rubbing up against the tiles

There are several different designs to moving floors, but many are adjusted using cables and a ram. These cables should be checked regularly in order to keep a moving floor running smoothly. If the cables become worn, they can snag and stretch. This will prevent the floor from rising and lowering evenly.

Side rollers are often installed to keep the floor away from the wall. If the rollers are have worn then they will require adjustment in order to keep the floor at the optimum distance from the wall.

The pulleys that the cables run in can also become worn.  Bearings can wear out and fixings can fail.
