The builders problem was how to waterproof new pool with Drizoro waterproofing materials. The major challenge related to the waterproofing of a large 15m x 6m wine cellar and an adjoining 103,000 litre swimming pool. Not only is the property on a slope but there is also a large perspex window in-between the cellar and the pool. As you can imagine, finding a waterproofing solution for both these areas was a high priority.

Complexity and scale of the waterproofing requirements was evident. What was required was an easy solution. Drizoro was in fact that solution it could go onto a wet wall, that really ticked a lot of boxes. It was also a huge plus to be able to apply Drizoro to green concrete. Not having to worry about full curing. This was especially the case as he had started the initial waterproofing process in the middle of winter. Once the concrete has been placed Drizoro can be applied the next day. This which speeds up the whole construction process.

Bruce Leslie, the Australian distributor of Drizoro visited the project and advises on the correct solutions. Bruce explains: “We are dealing with many different surfaces including concrete block, concrete shotcrete and wood. Pipe protrusions coming into the pool were of particular concern as there would be vibration from pumps and water hammer which could cause issues.”

Drizoro Materials Selected

Drizoro Maxjoint Elastic a flexible waterproof membrane, was applied around the pipes. When Drizoro Maxjoint Elastic cures, not only is it waterproof but it is highly flexible which is a huge benefit in this application. “Whilst we put MaxJoint Elastic around the pipe protrusions we have a substrate that is very porous.

Drizoro Maxseal Flex was applied onto the concrete to ensure we have waterproofing continuity from the pipe protrusions all the way to the concrete”, says Bruce. Drizoro Maxseal Flex can be used in a wide range of applications. Such as for the waterproofing of retaining walls, basement car parks, rainwater tanks, rooftop concrete balconies, fishponds and planter boxes.

Bruce provided Michael (the builder) with a full catalogue of waterproofing solutions, complete with specifications, for all his waterproofing requirements. This included the external walls of the cellar, which are up to 3 meters below natural ground.
