Pool waterproofing replacing ceramic tiles

Today, the pool at home or in the country is no longer a dream, but a reality. The price of collapsible pools is very affordable for almost anyone, it remains only to determine its size and type. But no inflatable or frame pool compares to a “real” large pool located in the ground and equipped with a professional water treatment system. Of course, this type of pool is much more expensive, and also requires considerable time to perform the necessary construction work. Plus, this should be done by a proven and qualified specialist. Thanks to the scientific and technical progress, new materials are emerging that allow significant savings and certain types of work to be carried out independently. Not so long ago, liquid waterproofing materials appeared on the construction market that not only protect against moisture and have a very attractive appearance.Moreover, these materials can be used for waterproofing swimming pools, thereby replacing the use of ceramic tiles and significantly saving on work. The process of waterproofing a pool looks like this: 1) The working area should be carefully treated with emery paper, preferably in one direction in circular motions, so that after applying the material the surface is as smooth as possible.

Ideally, if the surface is gray, it is desirable to treat it with white primer material, in this case, less product consumption will be required and the pool shade will wake up with a brighter, more saturated one. Only after the primer has completely dried can you proceed to the next stage. 3) These waterproofing materials are usually white. Adding color, and continuously stirring for 5-7 minutes with a mixer at low speed (up to 200), you can get absolutely any shade.The main thing to be careful in the process of dosage, so as not to overdo it with color. The dosage is three times less than with a tinted water-based paint. 4) After that, you can begin the application process. For this, it is better to apply the manual method and abandon the puller if there is no experience with it, since the layer may not be uniform, which will be visually immediately apparent. A small fly brush can be used for cutting and corners, and for applying material to the main surface - a roller, spongy or shaggy, depending on the desired surface structure.

5) At the same time, the ambient temperature should not be below + 10 C, otherwise the material may peel off and move away from the surface and not higher than + 35 C,as the waterproofing will dry out too quickly and stripes from the roller and brush will remain. Humidity should be no higher than 60%. The number of recommended applied layers varies from 2 or more. Before applying a repeated layer, one hundred percent drying of the previous one should occur. As a rule, depending on the temperature outside, complete drying will take place in 20-30 hours. 6) Depending on the manufacturer, the thickness of each layer is usually from 0.5 to 1 mm. 7) Application waterproofing material occurs strictly in one direction, or up-down, or left-right, as a result, the surface structure will be more homogeneous.

8) If the base of the pool is gray colors, the number of layers must be more than 2, otherwise the gray color of the plaster (glue) may occur after application.Do not be afraid if after the first layer the surface will not have a very attractive appearance. The subsequent application of the material will hide all the pronounced initial defects. And after finishing the application of the final layer, the surface should dry up to 100%, so before filling the pool with water it must take a couple of days.  waterproofing the pool

As you can see, This process is not so complicated, all the work can be done independently, the main thing is to carefully mark the waterproofing material, if it is required by the instruction, prepare the whole instrument and perform the work carefully, without hurrying, without forgetting to allow each new layer to dry after applying it.
