The manufacturing process of concrete pavers has always been straightforward and simple and makes them more affordable than poured concrete or asphalt surfaces. Concrete pool paving is even more affordable than other materials like clay stone or granite. Most importantly when you install them in your swimming pool they last for a very long time. Pool pavers are manufactured in a specially designed mould which packs the cement and sand tighter than you can get with poured or stamped concrete. Therefore pavers always become a sturdier and stronger choice than asphalt poured concrete and other surfaces.
Permeable Pavers Role in LID: Water passes through the upper lever of the pavers to a sub-level infiltration basin. Storm water is therefore treated through filtration volatilization microbial activity storage and ion exchange. Water is filtered slowly and can be used on-site. Iniltration: There is some disagreement about how much water infiltrates through permeable pavers. The percentage of water that actually moves through the pavers must be figured considering the lifetime of the paver surface and the type of soil beneath the surface. For clean pavers free of dirt and soil a study has shown that water can move through permeable pavers at a rate of 3-4 inches per hour.
This overview looks at: some of the problems with hardscape surfaces the do not allow water to penetrate Low Impact Design (or LID) and how it seeks to treat this problem and some general information about how permeable pavers can accomplish this in addition to stating how they conform to The Americans with Disabilites Standards plus some pointers on how these pavers can be used in LEED projects and the areas in which they can be used for points. Low Impact Development (LID): A design strategy with the goal of "maintaining and enhancing the pre-development hydrologic regime of urban and developing watersheds." One of the primary objectives of LID is reduce water runoff by decreasing permeable surfaces.
Concrete Pavers: this type is more or less a variation of brick pavers; instead of clay the components of the mixture include water concrete or cement sand and other types of solid aggregates which are then molded under a high temperature kiln. Concrete pavers are commonly rectangular in shape and are arranged in the floor surface with gaps/joints of grout grass gravel or sand. Flooring pavers of this type are popular for their simple minimalist yet tidy appearance. Stone Pavers: boast of the natural look that they can bring in any spot. Paving components used for this type include granite limestone or flagstone which are polished and molded to suit the pattern desired.
