One of the most interesting projects that I was able to work on that involved the colour red was building and maintaining a red swimming pool. This is as weird of a project as it may sound when first reading it, but it will make sense within time. There were so many aspects that went into the project itself, such as the feasibility of the project itself and a realistic chance to maintain the swimming pool itself. While it may sound too complex and difficult for a home owner or a builder to create a swimming pool that is always a certain colour while also being safe to use on a day to day basis, we did manage to come up with multiple features and additions that allowed the swimming pool to stay red in terms the water and the landscape itself.
The home owner who wanted the red swimming pool was a player for a Manchester based football team, so it was important to him that the swimming pool and the garden itself matched the theme of the “Red Devils”. This really is as insane as it sounds, and for that reason I am going to give as little detail or information as possible, so you do not know who the home owner is. The home owner is a huge Manchester United fan, and he wanted his kids to grow into Manchester United fans too. While I am not one to judge on what a home owner would like for their own designs, I do understand the thought process of the design itself and I really enjoyed taking part in the process itself. It was enjoyable to complete, and after the swimming pool had been constructed I thought that the project itself was elegant and stylish, since it had the chance to make the swimming pool look like it was a blood bath.
The swimming pool was actually very easy to complete in terms of the red colouring. The stage of construction was to complete the swimming pool by placing red panels within the walls of the pool. The red panels and tiles made sure that the water had given the pool an illusion of red, while also ensuring that the Manchester United crest was painted into the tiles at the bottom of the pool itself. It was visible to all those who were either looking down on the pool, or inside the pool itself. On top of the red tiles and panels, I also placed small but strong red LED lights within the pool, and the lights had also given the impression of the water being a reddish tint. We were also considering adding non-toxic red colouring into the pool itself, but once the water had already been filled into the pool, it gave the water a red look while the lights are on to the point that the colouring was not necessary for the home owner.
I hope you enjoyed todays blog post. This is one of the most interesting and unique projects that I have ever worked on and had the chance to take part in. While I am sure that similar projects have been completed throughout the world, this is the first time I have ever seen a similar project and it was the first time I had ever gotten the chance to work on one, so it was enjoyable.
