Water-proofing of pools
A pool is one of the most complex object from the engineering point of view. A huge quantity of water, from several hundred liters to several tonnes, makes an enormous burden on the pool walls and bottom, has a high influence on the humidity regime in the premise. The pool water-proofing is the most important complex task, which is performed in stages during the pool construction. Our company will make water-proofing quickly and with a high quality, and the application of most up to date materials  and technologies will guarantee non-permeability of water. Majority pools are constructed according to the same technology.  In the wide soil excavation, a bolster made of gravel and sand is put on the bottom, then a fixture is put after which it is concreted. When the concrete is completely set togheter on the bottom, the pool walls are then concreted, the entire equipment is positioned, skimmers, sprinklers, the pool walls are hermetized and at the end the ceramic tiles are set up. There are however weak points in such a construction, by which the pool hydro insulation is being damaged. The first thing to pay attention to is the concrete quality, its immediate contact with the soil in which excavation is being made.
In order to have the safe pool hydro insulation, the polymer additives are added to the concrete, which decrease its porosity and increase resistance to constant influence of water. In such a way, its protection against the outside humidity is accomplished, as the humidity comes from ground water or from athmospheric sediments, which are being filtered through the soil. On the places of contact with metal elements in a certain period of time water starts leaking, and it is practically impossible to make a repair. The „Urban Alpinism“ company  uses the materials for the pool hydro insulation  which are being put onthe construction through a special technique and which protect the pool walls against the water permeability into its construction. A monolytic coverage, which is created, makes no additional  burden on the pool walls, but it only confronts well to the water pressure and to other outside factors, ultraviolet beams, temperature oscilations and mechanical burden.
