Sani-Tred Announces Tips on How to Waterproof Swimming Pools

Share Article

With its products PermaFlex, LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator), Sani-tred is the leader in swimming pool repair, restoration and waterproofing.

Not only did our waterproofing products result in significant savings over long-term, but our clients have also reported a dramatic decrease in their use of pool chemicals.

Sani-Tred, a brand leader in waterproofing products, offers permanent solutions for fiberglass and concrete pool owners --from repair to restoration-- along with a variety of applications include basement waterproofing, radon elimination, and roof coating. The company's products are do-it-yourself and come with a lifetime warranty.

All pool owners have to deal with all sorts of cracks in their swimming pool, and most make the common mistake of trying to patch those cracks with cement-based products, even though it's known that cement does not permanently adhere to cement, and cementicious products have zero flexibility and zero elongation. So when movement --the main cause of those cracks-- occurs again, same and new cracks show up all over. What to do? The key is to learn how to properly waterproof a swimming pool and Sani-Tred offers some useful tips on the matter:

1. Use a set of products with enough flexibility to penetrate into the substrate, not only the surface, for permanent adhesion.
2. The products of choice must effectively withstand hydrostatic pressure.
3. Stay away from one-step solutions. A successful pool repair includes different steps of coating and patching with the right products, that combined provide the best results.
"Recently, one of our city pool clients told us that our Sani-Tred application raised the average temperature of their pool more than ten degrees," stated a company representative. The change in temperature occurred because the pool's surface became impermeable following the product application and water loss was prevented. Sani-Tred waterproofing products are deep surface penetrating, permanently flexible and have a topical seamless vapor barrier.

"Before they used the Sani-Tred's PermaFlex, LRB (Liquid Rubber Base) and TAV (Thickening Activator), they would have to constantly add large amounts of cold tap water to maintain the proper water level in the pool," adds the Sani-Tred rep. " Not only did our waterproofing products result in significant savings over long-term, but our clients have also reported a dramatic decrease in their use of pool chemicals."

This is only one of the reasons why Sani-Tred products are the most recommended for swimming pools repairs. The savings are visible! No other swimming pool repair product in the market is capable of withstanding the movement of an average-used pool; those others simply lack the flexibility and ability to enduringly adhere that Sani-Tred's products have.

The experts at Sani-Tred also recommend their product for pools in colder Northern latitudes where pools are normally drained during the winter.
