Residential Case Studies: Joint Sealing of Public Pool
A local city-owned public pool was facing some challenges due to the age of the facility. The deck of the public pool was in good condition, however, the original control joint material that was placed in saw cuts and control joints was breaking down due to exposure to sun and weather. The joints are crucial to allow the concrete pool deck to expand and contract with changing temperatures, BUT they should be sealed off from water penetration as this water undermines base soils under the concrete pool deck. If this is left uncorrected, water can wash out base soiled and lead to settlement of the pool deck slabs themselves resulting in very costly repairs.
City officials were concerned that if the issue was not dealt with immediately, more intrusive and certainly more costly measures would be needed to repair the pool. After consulting with Matt McCullough, CCL's Director of Sales the town officials decided the use of CCL's NexusPro joint sealant was the best approach to this issue.
1. Our installation team prepared the control joints by removing old materials and cleaning out ant debris along the joints.
2. Where required, a "backer rod" was placed in the joints as specified for this type of material.
3. CCL's technicians installed the NexusPro with precision to effectively seal off the joints to water penetration.
4. Full use of treated areas could be re-instated within a few hours after CCL was done giving the NexusPro material adequate time to cure.
5. The job was completed in half a day.
