   WATERPROOFING FOR SWIMMING POOL
                    Cement base system
         Application

   This application is for swimming pools either on new built swimming pools or for
   repairing old ones. In both cases, a waterproofing system needs to be applied in
   order to protect the concrete and prevent any water leakage.


                                                                             Waterproof.110/120 FX

         Solution Guide
                                                                                                        Surface Preparation
   The cement base products are ideal for this application. The concrete is to be
   treated before fixing the tiles and the following steps are to be considered:

   PREPARATION OF THE SURFACE
   Remove dust, oil and any remainders by using grinders and fresh water only;
                                                                                                        Presence of Holes
   all substrate must be sound and clean.

   PRESENCE OF HOLES
   Mostly in newly built swimming pools, holes will appear caused by molding
   or else; such holes must be cleaned and damped.
   Use the plugging mortar Waterproof.150 BLC and keep it moist for a period
   of 15 min. If any cracks are present, they can be treated the same way.
                                                                                                         Honeycombing

   HONEYCOMBING
   In some newly built swimming pools, honeycombing may be found occurred
   by concrete pouring or pumping. Honeycombing areas must be cleaned by
   removing all damaged concrete and existing laitance and the damp the
   concerned areas with water and use Conrep.331 TX for filling Honeycombing
   area and the cracks if any.
                                                                                                         Damaged Concrete
   BIG HOLES AND DAMAGED CONCRETE
   In the case of big holes or damaged concrete in old or new swimming pools,
   all damaged areas must be chiseled, cleaned and damped with fresh water.
   Conrep.331 TX is to be applied in one or two layers depending to depth of
   holes.

                                                                                     Joint Treatment
JOINTS TREATMENT
All joints between vertical walls and ground must be treated by creating a
groove of 2 cm deep and 2 cm wide; the groove is to be cleaned and damped
with fresh water then filled with Waterproof.150 BLC.
In order to protect the filled joint, Conrep.331 TX is to be applied on the 90°
corner in a round shape and in an appropriate thickness.

PLASTERING
The substrate of the concrete walls must be aligned in order to have the tiles       Rush Coat                        Plastering
fixed therefore plastering work is to be applied after repairing work. Apply
one coat of Premix.key coat on thickness of 2 to 6 mm manually or by using
a Tyrolienne spraying device.
For a better curing, keep spraying water twice a day. After 3 days of the
curing process, apply one single layer of Premix.plaster fiber. Thickness can
reach 15 mm and carry additional 3 days of curing. In case more thickness is
required to achieve the alignment, then scratch the finishing coat and apply
another one following the previous steps,

FLOORING SCREED                                                                      Flooring Screed
The concrete floor has to be aligned as well, by using floor screed
Floortop.600 SCR, mix 50 kg of Floortop.600 SCR with 7 liters of fresh water
and pour the mixed product onto the floor and spread it with a steel trowel
for a thickness up to 50 mm. Control joints in the existing substrate should be
respected. For large areas, joints should be created every 25 m². Avoid fast
drying in case of hot temperature or wind by regular curing process.

WATERPROOFING
After assuring that all the above steps have been maintained, the swimming
pool is ready to receive the final product in the cement waterproofing system
for walls and floor, Waterproof.110/120 FX - the flexible high performance             1st coat flexible waterproof      2nd coat flexible waterproof
product is to be used in 3 layers:
     - 1st layer with sufficient thickness 1kg/m²:
        o Use a brush or a roller
        o Fix 20 cm width of fiber mesh on all corners, joints and cracks while
          the waterproofing layer is still wet
When dry, apply the:
     - 2nd and 3rd layer in proportions of 0.5-1 kg/m².

TILING
Walls and floor of the swimming pool are ready to receive the final step of
                                                                                     Adhesive application                 Tiling
this system. The tiles are to be fixed by using Carroflex as follows:
       - Mix the two components of Carroflex by pouring the powder in the
        liquid progressively while stirring the liquid. An electric mixer with low
        rotation speed (< 300 rpm) can be used. Mix until a uniform lump free
        paste is obtained.
      - Apply Carroflex evenly on the substrate. Use a notched trowel to have
        the required thickness. Apply the tiles on the substrate and press them
        firmly, while making sure that the paste does not slip from the tile sides.
       Carroflex can also be applied on the back of tiles to ensure full adhesion
       on the entire surface.

GROUTING                                                                             Grouting                             Grout cleaning
After the fixation of tiles, all the area must be cleaned with fresh water and
kept untouched for 24 hours in order to allow the tiling to be set, then all the
tiles joints should be filled with Carrojoint. Apply Carrojoint with a rubber
spatula into the joints by filling all the gaps. Remove surplus grout with a
damp sponge. Use the product within a maximum of 2 hours after mixing.
When the grout is dry, clean the tiles with a dry cloth.

* For better chemical resistance, we recommend the use of Epojoint.
