Tile pool repair

This cracked and leaking pool located in Marbella needed an urgent repair. Poor construction and ground movement were to blame.

The pool had cracked across the width and from the middle towards one corner, what caused water leaks in the structure.  When the structure is leaking, regrouting or replacing the glass mosaic tiles will not help since they are not waterproof. 

Traditional tile pool repair based on using repair mortar or filling the cracks with silicone does not prove successful in the long term. You have to deal with the underlying problem because if the ground moves slightly again, the crack will reopen.

Once a pool starts cracking, there is no turning back: it needs to be repaired quickly to prevent more damage in the structure itself or even in the surrounding area. Not only will the steel in the structure become exposed and will start to corrode, but also will the water running under the pool structure soften the ground. Thus, the problem will further aggravate.

To sum up, even though mosaic tiled pools are an absolute eye-catcher, this pool lining option implies a series of disadvantages including dirty grout lines, loose or broken tiles, cut feel and difficult maintenance. RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS, on the other hand, requires low-maintenance, is easy to clean and provides the beautiful finish of tiled pools.

Piscina Liner are pool specialists in Andalusia and Algarve with many years of experience in repairing cracked and leaking pools. Whenever they deal with a tile pool repair where the customer does not want to give up this aesthetic finish, they recommend RENOLIT ALKORPLAN CERAMICS.

“No more loose tiles, sharp edges, leaks and difficult maintenance.”

Applying a RENOLIT ALKORPLAN reinforced membrane over the existing pool shell creates a barrier for the water and is guaranteed to be waterproof. In this specific case, the landlords chose the distinguished light grey ALKORPLAN CERAMICS Selene in order to undergo the tile pool repair. Pools do not always have to be blue! All the beauty of a tiled pool with none of the downsides of a tiled pool.

Ever heard of the Slovene Riviera? The beautiful coastline of Slovenia is located on the Gulf of Trieste, by the Adriatic Sea. A charming location with charming households like this wonderful one embellished with a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige.

A private house located in the seaside resort and spa town of Portorose (Portorož), whose owners were having problems with the previous lining system, which had been installed back in 2005. The old 1.5 mm blue liner had been wrongly installed, what caused water leaks on many spots.

Spambient, a pool building company from Slovenia specialised in swimming pools and whirlpools was in charge of the complete pool repair on this occasion. Refurbishing a pool lined with reinforced membrane is very easy and it will not take more than a few days depending on the pool dimensions. That is exactly one of the many advantages of the on site lining: simple installation without additional building work.

Since the previous lining had also had problems of colour fading, this time the landlords opted for a pool lined with ALKORPLAN TOUCH Prestige: a 2 mm thick pool liner inspired by nature provided with great durability. A 3D relief which reproduces volcanic rock and perfectly matches with the red-coloured façade and the surrounding pool deck.

The 13.5 x 5.8 m overflow pool with a variable depth which ranges from 1.4 to 2.1 m, has four inbuilt underwater windows, an unusual but impressive pool design. It is also equiped with water attractions, a submerged pool roller cover and an inverter driven heat pump.

In a nutshell, a pool that stands out not only because of its wonderful setting with gorgeous seaview, but also because of the pool characteristics, that make it unique.
