.Roll Out Gutter Pool  Abstract: A gutter system for a swimming pool of the type having side walls and a gutter extending along the top of the side walls around the periphery of the swimming pool. Each integral gutter section has a front wall facing the swimming pool. a bottom wall resting on top of the side walls of the swimming pool and a back wall which preferably has a vertical extension thereon rising above the gutter and forming a break-water between the gutter and an elevated concrete deck. water-tight gaskets. characterized in that gutter is formed from integral sections molded from nonmetallic material and joined end-to-end by flexible.

. removable cover sections are fitted over the gutter and extend between the upper edge of the front wall of the gutter. a water supply conduit is disposed in the gutter between the cover sections and is connected to the water nozzle assemblies extending through the front wall of the gutter which feed water into the pool.Roll Out Gutter Pool Slotted. Advantageously.
