How is an efficient waterproofing done in swimming pools ?

Reinforced concrete walls and floors in swimming pools do not have the property to prevent water leakage. Special points such as water drain holes, water entrances, windows, wall and floor joints in concrete construction are poor in terms of sealing. Also cracks that may occur in the concrete also facilitate water leakage. The ceramics and grouting application to be done on the surface of the pool do not provide water isolation by itself.

Pool chemicals over time can overcome joint fillings in swimming pools. In this case, the ceramic adhesive can not maintain its property over time and starts to peel.

Steps to follow in swimming pool renovation

  1. Surface preparation

    All of the swimming pool ceramics, including sluices, must be removed. After dismantling, the ceramic adhesive on the surface is cleaned. All cracks visible horizontally and vertically should be repaired with weber.rep MA 200 or  weber.rep HKS by opening in V shape  All water inlet and outlet pipes in the pool should be filled with weber PU 2A or weber HP 3A by opening the V-shape around the stair connection feet . After this process, if there is dust on the surface, all surfaces should be primed with weber.prim max .

  2. Waterproof taping application

    As the ceramic or glass mosaic application is usually done in the pools, waterproofing corner band should be applied in horizontal and vertical corners.

  3. Insulation layer implementation

    In swimming pools exposed to negative water pressure (ground water pressure), waterproofing mortars resistant to negative water pressure should be used together with elastic, positive water pressure for application of waterproofing layer. 
    The waterproofing material prepared in accordance with the instructions for use is applied in 2 coats to the whole surface. In waterproofing applications, each layer application must be perpendicular to the previous kata. The edges, corners and other risky points should be supported by alkali-resistant glass fiber reinforcement files immediately after the first layer of waterproofing application . 7 days after the water insulation is completed, the pool should be filled with water and tested. If there is no leakage, ceramic application should be started..

  4. In ceramics applications to be made on the inner surfaces of the pool, joint gaps are filled with appropriate joint fillers after application of ceramic adhesive. Joint fillers with chemical resistance properties should be preferred in grouting applications. The use of non-slip tiles on the edges of the pool is recommended
