Waterproofing pool replacing ceramic tiles

To date, the pool at home or in the country is no longer a dream, but a reality. The price of collapsible pools is very affordable for almost anyone, it remains only to determine its size and type. But no inflatable or frame pool compares to a “real” large pool located in the ground and equipped with a professional water treatment system. Of course, this type of pool is much more expensive, and also requires considerable time to perform the necessary construction work. Plus, it should be engaged in a proven and qualified specialist.
Thanks to the scientific and technical progress, new materials appear, which allow to significantly save and carry out certain types of work independently. Not so long ago, liquid waterproofing materials appeared on the construction market that not only protect against moisture and have a very attractive appearance.Moreover, these materials can be used for waterproofing pools, thereby replacing the use of ceramic tiles and significantly saving on work.
The process of waterproofing the pool is as follows:
1) The working area must be carefully treated with sandpaper preferably in one direction in a circular motion, so that, after application of the material, the surface is as smooth as possible.

2) Previously, all plaster (glue) is treated with acrylic primer material of deep penetration for exterior works with the help of a stroke brush. Ideally, if the surface is gray, it is desirable to treat it with a white primer material, in this case, less product consumption will be required and the shade of the pool will wake up more bright, saturated. Only after the primer is completely dry can you proceed to the next step.
3) These waterproofing materials usually have a white color. Adding color, and continuously stirring for 5-7 minutes with a mixer at not high speed (up to 200), you can get absolutely any shade. The main thing is to be careful in the dosage process, so as not to overdo it with color.The dosage is three times less than with tinted water-based paint.
4) After that you can start the application process. For this, it is better to apply the manual method and abandon the puller if there is no experience with it, since the layer may not be uniform, which will be visually immediately apparent. A small fly brush can be used for cutting and corners, and for applying material to the main surface - a roller, spongy or shag, depending on the desired surface structure.

5) At the same time, the ambient temperature should not be lower than + 10 ° C, otherwise the material may peel off and move away from the surface and not higher than + 35 ° C, since the waterproofing will dry out too quickly and stripes from the roller and brush will remain. Humidity should be no higher than 60%. The number of recommended applied layers varies from 2 or more. Before applying a second coat, one hundred percent drying of the previous one must occur. As a rule, depending on the temperature outside, full drying occurs in 20-30 hours.
6) The thickness of each layer, depending on the manufacturer's firm, is usually 0.5 to 1 mm.
7) The application of the waterproofing material is strictly in one direction, or up-down, or left-right, as a result, the surface structure will be more uniform.

8) If the base of the pool is gray, the number of layers must be more than 2, otherwise the gray color of the plaster (glue) may appear after application. Do not be afraid if after the first layer the surface will not look very attractive. Subsequent application of the material will hide all pronounced initial defects. And after finishing the application of the final layer, the surface should be 100% dry, so before filling the pool with water it should take a couple of days.

As you can see, this process is not so complicated, you can do all the work yourself, the main thing is to carefully tint waterproofing material, if it is required by the instructions, prepare the entire tool and do the work carefully, without haste, not forgetting to give each new layer to dry after it is applied .
