Pool build

Post by Ionarrene » Mon Mar 25, 2019 5:35 am

Hi got some issues about building a cinder block pool :
Actually the blockwork is not the problem it's the swimming pool floor I cannot get a cement truck to the area I intend to build so I am looking for some alternatives:
- any possibility I can lay blockwork on top of an epdm rubber sheet?
- or somehow use bentonite clay to seal the bottom ?
- any sorts of slabs that can be filled over?

I'm sure somebody must have encountered this before !!!
Any advice would be much appreciated

I'm not a pool builder either, but if the truck can't get to where you need the concrete, have you considered using a concrete pumper? As the name implies, this is a company that can pump the concrete from the truck to wherever it needs to go.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
