There are inserted into the support and concreted.While away from each other stands must be not more than 2 meters.

If the canopy will be built over the pool, their additional waterproofing.Requires a foundation for the entire structure stood firmly on the ground.In the second stage begin to install the cross supports.In fact, they have the form of bent pipes, which are interconnected by means of spacers.Thus, they are bent to shed itself had arched shape.
