Cracked swimming pool, Alhaurin el Grande, Malaga, Spain
This swimming pool displays a typical problem created by builders when doing renovations. During the modernisation and renovation of the villa, a new large terrace was required around the swimming pool. For the builder, the easiest way to support the terrace is to put the new concrete slab on top of the pool wall, then raise the skimmers and tile the pool.
This creates a natural weak point in the wall of the pool. As you can see from the photographs, the pool has a horizontal crack running all the way around the pool. This joint will always be a weak point, as the entire weight of the terrace is pivoting on this point.
The swimming pool leaked all the way around, which could be seen from underneath the terrace.
To repair this type of swimming pool leak, a Renolit AlkorPlan reinforced membrane is the ideal solution. This type of pool liner is reinforced with polyester fibres and remains permanently flexible. This guarantees that the pool structure will not leak for 10 years.
This type of installation takes approx 3 days,en the swimming pool can be refilled immediately. It is a cost effective solution, compared to total reconstruction, with the associated mess and disruption.
