Wrong way to build a Spray Concrete pool ..

I noticed a photo of a guy spraying a concrete pool. I was stunned to see what the photo showed…. let me explain !

When constructing a spray concrete swimming pool there are some key principals which must be followed precisely..

1/   you must spread a layer of filter gravel to provide a drainage layer for seepage under the pool… depth of this   filter gravel varies depending on the plasticity of the ground where the pool is being constructed… this site would appear to me at the very least clay based yet there is no drainage layer…

2/  steel reinforcing required minimum 65mm coverage to avoid steel rusting as a result of water penetration. For this reason steel chairs are used to hold the steel cage away from the floor. Astonishingly this builder has used a few old bricks that will without doubt leave considerable voids where the steel will remain open to attack from water on the underside of the pool, where you will never see until the rust starts exploding into the pool.

Its imperative to know your pool builder had the expertise to understand why every process must be completed correctly in the construction of your new concrete pool.
