Pressure Treated Wood - The Crestwood Pool
Pressure treated wood wall above ground pools are an attractive, safe
and long lasting alternative to the standard metal wall above ground
pool. Crestwood Pools uses only the finest Grade 1 Southern Yellow Pine
in all of its pools. This stringently graded type of lumber is not only
the most easily and completely treated wood available, but also,
selected from the best parts of the tree. Only boards that met strict
guidelines for knot size and quantity, limited amount of wane (bark
remaining along the edge of the board), grain consistency and structural
integrity can be graded as #1. Although only #1 Lumber is used,
Crestwood Pools acts as the final inspector monitoring the moisture
content, bowing, crooking and surface appearance. The pressure
treatment process begins by completely immersing lumber in a pressurized
tank filled with a water based solution of CA (Copper Azole). As wood
is exposed to moisture, it swells similar to a sponge. When most
commercially available pressure treated lumber is exposed to sunlight
and lower humidity it begins to dry out and shrink. These tendencies of
the treated lumber are often considered undesirable. Drying of the wood
(and the accompanying shrinkage) is what contributes to bowing, warping
and crooking of the treated lumber. These characteristics would be
unacceptable to above ground pool wall construction. To eliminate any
potential problems, Crestwood Kiln Dries (dries in a large oven) all its
lumber and continually monitors its moisture content. By doing so,
Crestwood can ensure stable wooden components that have been dried to
their equilibrium moisture content. After drying, the boards are again
inspected for warping, twisting, bowing or cracking. All pressure
treated wood will weather and show signs of checking with time. This
natural aging process will not affect the woods' useful life or affect
its' warranty. However, customers should be advised that an application
of Wolman Brand Stains or Water Repellent Coatings every two years will
reduce the number of check and cracks, as well as retard the weathering
