Best Waterproofing for Swimming Pools

Best Waterproofing Product For Swimming Pools

There are several waterproofing products that could be utilized to waterproof a swimming pool

Let us start by acknowledging the fact that waterproofing swimming pools is entirely different from waterproofing kitchens, bathrooms, and roofs. That is due to the fact that swimming pools are submerged areas and are not wet areas. The difference is the WEIGHT.

Assume standard swimming pool size ( Length 8 meter * Width 4 m * Depth 1.5 m ) has weight of 48 ton. Roughly equal to the weight of 19 Toyota Land Cruisers.

That is why it is IMPOSSIBLE to waterproof a swimming pool and concrete structure failures.

And that is the Most IMPORTANT STAGE

And the MOST IGNORED ONE

Rotex clients are provided with instruction to pass onto their Concrete contractor  that inclucdes ( special rebar ties at corners, cold joints construction technique, plumbing-rough-in design to eliminate all weak areas, and whether water stop is to be used or otherwise) 

Other typical considerations include whether the pool is above or below grade, any attached retaining walls, or masonry works.

AND ONLY THEN A WATERPROOFING PRODUCT IS CHOSEN

In general there are 3 types of waterproofing ( Cementitious, rubber-based, crystalline )

Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, another set of products are added 

Speciality products to fill any remaining weak spots

Non-Shrinkage grout to line areas

Epoxy based products as well in certain scenarios.
