Why Choose a Water-Inflated Cofferdam for Swimming Pool Repairs?

Pool repairs or routine maintenance require dewatering part of the pool so a crew can work in safety. Naturally, the remaining water must be held back with a sturdy barrier to prevent leakage or wasting water. For most pool construction or repair projects, a water-inflated cofferdam can hold back the water as well as provide a place to store the excess.

A water-inflated cofferdam such as the Aqua-Barrier can provide the same benefits as a typical water barrier for pool construction while making the entire process easier. By saving time and resources, an inflatable bladder dam proves itself to be a valid and beneficial choice for a pool construction crew.

Conservation of Water

For typical pool construction, the entire pool has to be drained and refilled once work is done. Using an Aqua-Barrier not only allows you to keep a good portion of the water in the pool while you work, but it also stores the excess water in the barrier itself. You may have to add a little water back into the pool afterward, but the amount will be significantly less than before. An inflatable dam is designed to serve as good water storage as well as a construction barrier.

Pro Tip: With an Aqua-Barrier, your commercial pool can remain open to the public during construction. The barrier will prevent water from spilling into the construction zone and maintain an environment perfect for swimming on the other side.

Save Time

An Aqua-Barrier requires less time to install in a large-scale construction project. In a public pool, you can count on the water dam to be the quickest option. Additionally, remember that you no longer have to drain and refill the entire pool, just part of it. A bladder dam could cut your construction time down by hours or even days!  

Guaranteed Protection

In addition to being the perfect dewatering solution for a pool project, the Aqua-Barrier guarantees a safe environment for your construction crew. The vinyl is incredibly durable. On the rare occasion that the lining needs repairs, patching is a quick process and doesn’t necessarily require the barrier to be removed from the water. Your crew is in good hands with a safe choice like the Aqua-Barrier.

The Best Dewatering Solution

An Aqua-Barrier provides a perfect balance of safety, ease, and speed for your next swimming pool construction or repair project. Take advantage of a bladder dam to speed up the necessary work and allow your pool to stay open to the public in the meantime.

How Inflatable Cofferdams Can Save Pool Water During Maintenance

How Inflatable Cofferdams Can Save Pool Water During Maintenance

When it’s time to work on your swimming pool, you may be tempted to just drain the water and refill the pool once you’re finished. But there may be a more conservative way to move the water out of your way. Have you tried reusing pool water? An inflatable water barrier can both remove water from your work area and allow you to refill the pool later.

Don't feel like draining and refilling your entire swimming pool for repairs? Why not store the water and reuse it afterward? Here's how! Click To Tweet

Advantages of an Inflatable Cofferdam During Pool Construction

Pool repairs don’t have to involve wasting an entire pool’s worth of water, only to refill it again. Save yourself some time and effort while conserving water. With an inflatable Aqua-Barrier, you’ll enjoy several benefits for your construction project, including:

  1. Save water and money
  2. Less time spent refilling pool
  3. No damage from dumping the water

1) Save Water and Money

A typical backyard swimming pool holds thousands of gallons of water. Considering that an American uses approximately 100 gallons of water per day, you’ll be throwing out nearly 5 months worth of water if you empty your entire pool. Imagine how much that adds to your water bill! Don’t waste your money or your water–store the water temporarily until you can refill the pool.

2) Less Time Spent Refilling Pool

Reusing your pool water will save you time after the project is finished. Instead of waiting for pumps to refill the pool after construction, all you have to do is open the Aqua-Barrier’s seal and let the water spill back into your pool. You’ll be done in a flash!

Pro Tip: Before you inflate the Aqua-Barrier, clean any leaves, bugs, etc. out of your pool. The last thing you want is to refill your newly refurbished swimming pool with dirty water.

3) No Damage from Water Dumping

It’s generally illegal to dump pool water so that it flows down a storm drain since that introduces chlorine and other chemicals into the water, potentially harming fish and other sea creatures later on. Fortunately, reusing your pool water eliminates both the hazard and the need for water dumping. Just make sure any excess spillage is contained in your backyard.

A Quick, Simple Pool Fix

An Aqua-Barrier can make your pool repair job both easier and cheaper than the usual method. Don’t waste your money, time, or effort on disposing of thousands of gallons of water during your construction project. With an Aqua-Barrier, reusing pool water has never been easier.

Water Management for Commercial Pools

Water Management for Commercial Pools

Summertime is right around the corner, so that means it’s time to get your commercial swimming pool in tip-top shape. Pools provide instant relief from the intense Texas sun in the greater Houston area. They’re typically packed with guests in the hot summer months. However, it can be quite difficult to drain the entire pool for repairs.

If you need to perform maintenance on your commercial swimming pool, but don’t want to drain the entire pool, the Aqua-Barrier® is perfect for you! You may have heard of cofferdams for construction projects or for flood protection, but you might not have known how they can be used for commercial pool repairs. Are you looking for a fast dewatering solution for commercial swimming pool repairs? Find out how Aqua-Barrier can make pool maintenance quicker! Click To Tweet

Leak Repairs

Pool leaks are bad news for swimming pool owners. These leaks are usually beneath the pool in the plumbing. This can be problematic when the entire swimming pool shell is filled with water. The innovative technology of our inflatable cofferdams makes them a go-to solution for repairing pool leaks.

Pro Tip: If you need to seal a leak in your commercial swimming pool, but don’t want to drain and waste all of the pool water; consider an Aqua-Barrier®.


Whether you’re planning swimming pool renovations before your commercial swimming pool is open or during summer days, our inflatable cofferdams can make it easier for your construction company to access the areas that need improvements. When your pool lining is worn and damaged, you probably want to update the shell before guests arrive. However, with the Aqua-Barrier®, you can still make renovations in peak summer hours. By retaining the water for the specific area you need to repair, the rest of your swimming pool can remain open for business.

Additional Features

Another improvement you may want for your pool is additional features. Maybe you want to install LED lights or add scuppers or waterfalls, you may need to access areas of the pool that are submerged. The Aqua-Barrier® inflates with the water and holds it while construction is being completed. This ensures that you don’t have to lose any of your pool water.

Inflatable Aqua-Barrier® for Commercial Pool Construction

If you’re planning your pool construction in advance, or need to make improvements during operation hours, the Aqua-Barrier is an economical and eco-friendly alternative to draining your pool.
