Swimming pool repair, renovation and waterproofing, Almogia, Malaga
This pool is beautiful, nestled in the mountains between Malaga and Antequera. Unfortunately, it didn’t look like this when we arrived. The pool was in desperate need of repairs. The pool was leaking badly. Some repairs had been carried out, changing pipes for the skimmers and jets, but the problem here was structural.
The swimming pool had been built in a way that takes advantage of the natural form of the land. This gives a stunning look, but also means that the pool is stressed by the way that the ground wants to move. The area of the steps is probably on the most stable part of the ground, as in this area there is bedrock present. The deep end of the pool is where the ground is falling away. We suspect that these stresses are the reason for the pool leaking, as there is cracking in the shallow end of the pool.
The first part of the installation is to replace all of the fittings in the pool with liner compatible ones. This includes the skimmers, jets, drains etc. Once these are in place, we can install the top profile. The reinforced liner is then heat welded into place.
The reinforced pool liner from Renolit is both the waterproofing and cosmetic finish of the pool. It is the perfect solution for a cracked or leaking pool.
The natural earthy tones of the Renolit AlkorPlan 3000 Persia Sand really complement the area. The treads of the steps were finished using Renolit TOUCH Sublime, the non slip material gives a stunning detail.
This project took 4 days, due to the size and shape of the pool. If you are planning works to your pool, plan for when you are not using the pool, not 2 weeks before your guests or clients are coming. Our pool liner installations are fast and relatively mess free, but there are only so many working days in a year and then there can be unforeseen delays, such as bad weather, so plan ahead and enjoy a leak free swimming pool this summer.
