Tiled pool must be constructed from reinforced concrete. The pool shell must be water tight before tiling. The concrete shell of the pool is therefore the water retaining unit.
The concrete shell must be strong enough to withstand the internal water pressure and external hydrostatic pressure. The tile finish on the pool is purely aesthetics.
Our method for this type pool is shuttering, a high tensile steel framework is erected to the size & shape of the pool, the floor is poured with a high quality concrete, the wall shuttering is then erected and the walls poured. The shuttering is removed and when the concrete has cured the pool maybe tiled.
