Pools are equipped very often on a private territory near the residential building, and can also be erected directly in the structure. At the same time, it is important to know how exactly the process of their construction is performed, as well as what nuances should be taken into account. The most important condition for creating a high -quality, durable and reliable pool is considered correct and competent waterproofing, and it is internal. The process is considered complex and specific, so it needs to pay a lot of attention, and if there are any violations or errors, then the basin service life will be small, and it will also not be safe for use.
Materials for waterproofing pools
It is initially important to decide which technology and material will be used for these purposes. This includes the following options:
A film for waterproofing. It is available in two varieties, since it can be presented in the form of rolls or strips. As a rule, it is created from polyethylene, however, other materials can be used for this. During operation, there is a docking of individual elements of the film, which leads to the formation of seams. They are not considered too strong, so the service life of such waterproofing is low. During operation of the pool, the film can break or can easily disperse the seams. A membrane is considered a more reliable and durable, which may have dimensions corresponding to the dimensions of the pool itself, so a holistic canvas is obtained. However, working with such material is quite difficult. Also, in any case, the canvas can be quite simply damaged, as a result of which there will be a need to re -carry out the waterproofing process, for which you will have to completely change the created coating.
Special liquid mixtures. Coating waterproofing is still equal to penetrating, depending on which solutions are used for these purposes. It is these technologies that are considered the most popular and often used in the formation of waterproofing for the pool. Often coating mastic is often used, which covers all surfaces inside the pool. It can be used in conjunction with membranes, and can also be used for point repair of the pool. The coating paste is also used, which looks like mastic, but you need to apply a fairly thick layer of this material on various surfaces. It is used only with a reinforcing net. Crystaline waterproofing can also be created using bitumen, however, it is allowed to be used only for the external waterproofing of the pool. The fact is that this material loses its main positive parameters in constant contact with moisture, as well as the chemical composition of the material is not too good, therefore it can negatively affect the composition of the water itself in the pool. Another option for coating waterproofing is liquid rubber, which allows you to create a seamless layer on the swimming over the pool surfaces, which is environmentally friendly. The use of this material is considered simply work, so it is used for these purposes very often. Liquid glass is also used, which penetrates directly into the structure of the material from which the pool is made, and after complete solidification is a reliable plastic through which moisture does not penetrate in any way.
Combined waterproofing. It involves the use of several ways at once to get the most durable and reliable, as well as durable internal waterproofing of the pool.
Correct selection of waterproofing materials
Since the market presents a huge range of these materials, many people are faced with a serious and problematic choice, which is not so simple to implement. It is important to consider the following factors of materials:
Funds should be high -quality, and they must also ensure the formation of durable waterproofing;
The resulting coating should be stable not only before moisture, corrosion, but also before static and dynamic loads, which are regularly observed in the pool;
The cost of materials should not be overstated, since it should fully correspond to the quality of the composition;
The waterproofing layer should be monolithic and seamless, so the corresponding options are selected;
It is important to evaluate what material the walls of the pool are made of, since rolled waterproofing is suitable for concrete, but only special mixtures and solutions can be used to cover the tiles;
Materials should be stable and before temperature loads in case it is supposed to create a heated pool.
The process of applying waterproofing is the preparation of surfaces, applying the selected material and finishing work.
Thus, the choice of waterproofing material to cover the internal walls of the pool should be justified and correct, for which you need to evaluate all available options.
