Marble grate drainage testing machine

A new original laboratory equipment has been designed to accurately measure the drainage capacity of every single drain grate model of POOLSTONES by SOFIKITIS, addressing the concerns raised by clients regarding the drainage effectiveness of their preferred grate models. Undoubtedly, conventional marble grates have a lower drainage capacity compared to plastic grates with this reduced capacity being connected with the much larger surface that marbles have in comparison with plastic.

The results of the tests are expressed in liters per meter and per hour and illustrate precisely the liters of water that one meter of marble grate can drain within one hour. Normally, a residential pool requires a drainage capacity of approximately 1000-1500 liters per meter per hour with this capacity being achieved and even exceeded by the grates produced by POOLSTONES by SOFIKITIS.

Grates with increased drainage capacity are required for spas or in cases of simultaneous diving of many people into a pool, in order to prevent the overflowing water from escaping, due to the rippling. With the use of the testing machine, POOLSTONES by SOFIKITIS has not only produced new grate models which are more effective in terms of drainage but it has also launched a new way of installing them, modifying the angle of inclination which results in the alteration  of grates drainage capacity.

The main benefit that arises for clients is that POOLSTONES by SOFIKITIS can provide them with a grate model which will is perfectly customized to the needs of their pool in terms of drainage, ensuring a safe and dry deck.
