This is a concrete pool that has been left unfinished by another building company. We were contacted by the owners with the request to complete the pool. This is how we found it:
Formwork and reinforcement
The existing shuttering was incomplete and in not very good condition, adding some more steel reinforcement was required. We finished the formwork and strengthened the existing one. The necessary steel rebar was added.
In the concrete we used by the construction of the swimming pool were added waterproofing additives. We carried out all the concreting with no interruption which guarantees the shell to be waterproof and without joints. The still liquid concrete was vibrated with vibrating poker to ensure no air pockets will occur.
The blue line on the bottom is a swelling tape. It is used for sealing and waterproofing work joints between concrete slab and concrete wall.
Plastering and leveling the floor
When the concrete was dry the formwork was removed. The concrete bottom of the pool was very uneven and had to be leveled.
Coping stones, waterproof render and tiling
The coping stones were installed on the top of the walls to ensure the elegant silhouette of the pool. All the stones were carefully positioned and leveled for achieving a straight and accurate outline. Before the tiling was performed, two layers of a waterproof render have been applied to the inside of the walls and the bottom. The internal surface was then covered with mosaic tiles for pools.
Pool equipment and light installation, plumbing
Essential part of the pool construction is the proper installation of the equipment and the plumbing. Only high quality products were used and the installation was carried out our professional team.
Run-up and commissioning
The pool was filled with water and the pump turned on. After treating the water with chemicals the look of the pool changed dramatically with the cristal clear look of the water. The paving around the pool was perfomed by the owners.
