Concrete swimming pools feature steel reinforcements which have to be protected against water to prevent corrosion and concrete cancer causing structural damage to the swimming pool.

Epotec is a good choice for waterproofing at the time of concrete swimming pool repairs to prevent recurrence of problems caused by bad or absence of waterproofing.
