Vanishing Edges and Other Raised Walls: Waterproofing & More
Wednesday, February 1, 2012 from 8:30 A.M. to 10:00 A.M.
Presented by: Presented by: Ron Lacher, P.E., C.B.P., ACI Shotcrete Examiner
This seminar will focus on vanishing edge weir walls, exposed raised walls including spas and the lessons learned from the numerous problems frequently encountered. Attendees will learn about:
- The critical mistakes that can occur at each phase of construction that will result in continuing and expensive repairs.
- The thermal and moisture fluctuations that can push the surface materials past the allowable limits of their physical properties.
- The crucial “top-to-bottom” techniques that will keep these swimming pool elements looking exceptional rather than becoming repair nightmares.
