Challenge

What is the cause of each problem occurring in swimming pools?

It is very essential to select the appropriate products and to do the right application when building a swimming pool because after filling in with water, it can costs a lot of money to fix the problem occurring from the improper use. The products starting from waterproofing system, tiling, and then grouting must be specially designed to be used in the pool where is continuously subject to water pressure.

Recommendation

Appropriate selection of Weber's products for swimming pools depends on each factor as per the following. Location, level of the pool, and possibility of structural movement must be considered for the selection of waterproof products.

Tiles to be laid, frequency of use, temperature of and chemical added to the pool water must be considered for the selection of tile adhesive and tile grout.
