Polymer Wall System

Kafko’s Unique Multi-Flex® Polymer Wall System After years of research and development, Kafko™ has introduced a new generation of unique polymer inground pools on the market. This new concept of flexible panels (patented) allows the creation of endless shapes to better meet today’s consumer tastes. Our award winning polymer panels are strong and durable. Made of stable, non-biodegradable polymer foams, greatly increases the longevity of the pool. In addition, the cellular structure acts as a thermal screen holding heat in the pool and blocking the penetrating cold from surrounding soils. Comes with a Lifetime, One-Time Transferable warranty.

Kafko’s patented MULTI-FLEX® panel is made from 100% virgin, polypropylene non-corrosive material. This panel has a 4” top and bottom rail with a vertical rib running the height of the panel every 4”. Double resin strapping secures your MULTI-FLEX® panel into place, maintaining a true radius and added support. Although polymer pools have been available for many years, the one thing they have lacked is the ability to create new shapes. The MULTIFLEX® panel features patented live hinges which enable you, along with the help of your dealer, to choose from one of Kafko’s many shapes or create your own shape. Panel allows for wall/deck brace support every 3’.

Kafko’s straight panel is made from 100% virgin, high impact, polystyrene resin. The top, bottom and side rails of the panel is 4” wide, each panel is rigidized with vertical and horizontal ribs. Three vertical ribs run the height of the panel and two of the ribs are doubled up for the superior strength. The center vertical rib in the 6’ panel allows for a wall/deck support every 3’.

The 6’ straight panels are engineered with 2 designated cutouts for return fittings. This area is reinforced with a box rib support and premarked for drilling. This ensures all return fittings align at the same level, improving water circulation.

The panel is premolded for the Super-Skim ® Skimmer with skimmer support locator. This system relieves pressure from the plumbing. The Super-Skim® Skimmer is the only skimmer sold with its own skimmer support.


Straight Polymer panels can be fitted with a large 500 watt light using the premarked area. This light area is also reinforced and accurately positions the light to the recommended distance from the water line.

Top and bottom alignment tabs help align the wall panels correctly, which also helps maintain a level wall during construction.

Available in the industry standard panel height of 42” which gives you 3’ water depth in the shallow end of the pool. This pool is also available in 48” high panels allowing for 6” more water depth in the shallow end of the pool (3’6” water depth). The extra water depth is ideal for flat bottom pool designs which have become more popular in recent years, and 6” of extra water depth in hopper design pools will increase the comfort level for adults using the shallow end of the pool.

The Kafko™ heavy duty wall brace system is designed to hold the pool walls in place, giving maximum support. The convenient ground stakes secure the panels from any movement before the pouring of concrete. This guarantees a properly squared pool wall. The brace also allows for the attachment of our U-Tube, a concrete form which will help carry the deck load and add strength to the overall pool structure.

Pool Safety Awareness and understanding of water safety practices can reduce the risk of serious injury. Following safe water tips are essential for you and your family to have years of enjoying your pool. Playing it smart makes sense. IMPORTANT: A number of very important items that are essential for the safe use of your pool may not be visible in many of the photographs, either because of perspective or camera angle, or because they were removed for photographic purposes. These devices include: • Safety ropes, which should remain in place at all times • “ No Diving” signs which are provided with all Kafko™ pools and which should be installed in accordance with Kafko™ instructions, on the coping or liner, where they can be clearly visible

Smart pool owners always think safety first. They take specific steps to ensure that their family, friends and guests are knowledgeable about the safe and sensible use of their pool. They also: • E nsure that their pool is never used unless there is adequate supervision • T  hat their pool is kept in good repair and is not used when there is a missing or broken drain cover or other component • E nsure that ALL CHILDREN using their pool are supervised constantly

• A  n area sign which is provided with all Kafko™ pools and must be permanently and conspicuously affixed in the pool area where all users can see it

• T  hat anyone under the influence of alcohol, drugs or stimulants that would impair their abilities or judgement does not use the pool

• Necessary means of exit and entry into the pool

• T  hat their pool is protected by appropriate barriers to unsupervised entry including fencing with self latching gates, covers, alarms, etc.

• Fencing with a self latching gate, and other barriers that can assist parents in preventing unsupervised access to the pool by children • A  pproved drain covers and other devices to protect against suction entrapment

To assist you, a number of very important items of safety literature are included with each pool. We must insist that you read each item carefully and follow its instructions. These are:

• Minimum required inlets and returns to ensure proper water circulation

• Pool Owners Safety Handbook

• A  ppropriate in-pool lighting if the pool will be used after dark

• “Notice” Card

All of these devices should be installed in accordance with Kafko™ instructions, ANSI/NSPI or ANSI/APSP standards, as well as State and local statutes and codes.

• APSP “Sensible Way” Book

Diving boards and slides require minimum depths and distances and must only be installed and used in strict compliance with the equipment manufacturer’s specifications and ANSI/NSPI or ANSI/ APSP standards. If the pool is labelled by us as NON-DIVING, then diving equipment may not be installed and any such equipment must be removed before the pool is used.

• Plaque

• Vinyl Swimming Pool Liner-Warranty

• “Children Aren’t Waterproof” Book

• “No Diving” Labels

Make sure your builder supplies you with all of the safety information that accompanies your pool and installs the enclosed warning stickers and area sign where they can be clearly visible to all who use the pool. For more information with regard to the ANSI/ NSPI or ANSI/APSP standards or for other general information contact:
