What do we need?
The pool waterproofing is a demanding task that requires special attention in the design and implementation and shall provide the ability to build to withstand the high loads hydrostatic pressure , both positive and negative , which receives over time and in severe expansion and contraction caused by the effect of weather conditions ( heat – frost ) when it is emptied for maintenance.
A very common and in the same time economic way of waterproofing swimming pools, is the application of a paint with special characteristics, that will be able to withstand weather conditions, while it will also be able to be permanently under water. THRAKON suggests the application of the polyurethane paint for swimming pools CARMYPOOL.
How do we do it?
For waterproofing of the pool will use waterproofing plaster DSF 370 and for final surface we will use polyurethane pool paint CARMYPOOL. The above system creates an excellent seal against water pressure and gives the pool resistance over time.
Step by step
Step 1: Clean the surface from oil, dust and loose particles. In case of existing reinforcement, cut it at a depth of 3 cm. Then wet the area with water and proceed with repairing of the surface by using WRM 518
Step 2: Apply DSF 370 on top of concrete in order to level the surface. Total thickness of application should be around 2-3 cm, with 1cm in thickness applied. At the points of intersection of the walls with the ground of the swimming pool we suggest the creation of an inclined gutter with WRM 518. This will make the application of CARMYPOOL easier
Step 3: Prime the surface with the 2-component epoxy primer CARMYPOOL PRIMER (appropriate for swimming pools and water tanks). Priming of surface should be made 28 days following the application of DSF 370. In case of small cracks use CARMYPOX EG-10
Step 4: After 24 hours, proceed with the polyurethane paint with special technical characteristics CARMYPOOL. CARMYPOOL is extremely durable to solar radiation, as well as acid or alkaline environments. It also offers excellent waterproofing for a lot of years
