Concrete Swimming Pools
Concrete swimming pools will not look very pretty unless you coat that concrete in pool plaster later. Of course this is a standard practice and anyone that’s ever even stepped foot in a pool before would be able to attest to that. The plaster keeps the concrete swimming pools from having the water from the pool seep into any small cracks in the concrete and cause horrible problems later to the makeup of the pool. If the cracks are big then you will lose water every day, and if you don’t have that crack repaired it will cost you thousands of dollars a year to keep that pool constantly filled at the rate that it is leaking. So naturally the best thing to do with concrete swimming pools is to coat them in plaster and make sure that there are no cracks in the plaster. Of course concrete is going to be the main thing that is the base for the pool, so this part is equally important and if you can help it the security of this must not be compromised, but under a lot of pressure the concrete used in this process has been known to have a lot of issues. This is because over time being exposed to the pressure of the thousands of gallons of water in the pools, the concrete can become weakened and crack under this pressure. This is normal and even to be expected when you own a pool.
This is why the plaster exists. Without the plaster, not only would a pool look incredibly unattractive, but it would also have a lot of errors in it that would cause it to collapse under pressure. The plaster is there so that after the concrete cracks and crumbles slightly, the plaster will still stay in place. Of course the plaster will eventually have trouble too. This goes for all pools. There is not a one fix solution to issues like this, and every pool everywhere will eventually have problems with it and need to have the plaster replaced, but this is much more manageable and less expensive than having to redo an entire concrete foundation. The world of construction is all about cutting costs but not compromising quality, and thus the world of construction is something that needs to be monitored carefully to make sure that quality is still maintained when they attempt to cut costs. Hopefully people will be able to realize how important concrete is to swimming pools in the future.
Most people are aware of what electricians do for a living, or at least we have a vague idea. But did you know that electricians are also required on oil rigs? Needless to say this is a very different job from the type you would do if you were working...
