Waterproofing a swimming pool is essential to preserve its precious contents and ensure its longevity. Groundwater must also not be permitted to infiltrate the pool from the exterior. Most swimming pools are constructed from concrete or fibre glass. Concrete is porous, and typically requires a sealant or lining with a membrane. There are a number of different techniques utilised to waterproof a concrete swimming pool. Water-resistant cement, or waterproofing additives, are added to cement to ensure it reduces its porosity sufficiently. There are also flexible cement-based waterproof coatings, epoxy paints, as well as polyurethane based membranes which are typically sprayed on. Depending on the surface, paint or tiles can then be applied. Glass reinforced plastic is also used to repair existing pools with leaks.
A typical swimming pool repair will typically involve any number of the following steps:
Ask your waterproofer if they are able to store your water when they work on your swimming pool. This may well save you a considerable amount, given the large quantity involved.
