Riviera Pools was the first pool builder in the Tampa area to change
the way pools circulate. Most pools are circulated from the top, using
two to three pool inlets installed about 18" below the surface. We
developed our Rivenergy Circulation
system many years ago to help reduce the expenses associated with
operating a swimming pool. We looked at all aspects of the pool's
circulation system and designed it for higher flow rates and top to
bottom circulation. This type of circulation system can reduce chemical
and electrical cost by 30% and heating costs up to 40%.
Our plumbing is upgraded to handle the high-flow and variable speed
pumps. We use larger pipe sizes and install 45 degree elbows on the
pressure side of the plumbing system. This lowers friction loss and
reduces the head pressure on the system, thus increasing the flow rate.
We also include four venturi wall returns to give better chemical
distribution. If the pool is to be heated, we can add a fifth “Deep
Heat” return line on the deep end pool floor or upgrade to our Rivenergy VIP Systemso
the entire water column is circulated from top to bottom. This
increases the chemical distribution even more and allows the pool to be
heated from the bottom, which will heat the pool quicker and more
efficiently. We also use high-flow pumps, filters, valves, sanitizers
and heaters to keep the water moving through the system with less
restriction. Many of our customers realize lower electrical, heating and
chemical bills after using our Rivenergy system.
The Quik Skim venturi
powered skimmer removes more debris than a standard skimmer and allows
more suction to be directed to the pool drain by using venturi powered
skimming. Natural water pressure is used to create a stronger vacuum to
clear more debris than a standard skimmer. The AVCS heavy debris removal channel drain is
the safest and most efficient drain on the market. The AVSC drain has
been classified as unblockable and certified by NSF International.
Because of its dual levels of entrapment protection, the AVSC drain
offers the highest level of swimmer protection without sacrificing
cleaning capability. Designed with a large opening for heavy debris
removal, the AVSC keeps your pool clean while efficiently removing
unsightly large debris.
