Filling the gap

Postby rudy » Fri 25 Nov, 2016 19:53

Hello and thanks in advance for any advice. I have a gunite pool appro. 16000 gallons and have a leak in between the top of the pool wall and the cement deck. I had the pool
re plastered about 10 years and I guess they filled that gap with silicone. The gap runs the entire perimeter of the pool and is about a quarter inch wide. I am in the process of ripping out all the old silicone but need advice on what to use to fill that gap. Thanks

The industry standard is Sika-Flex.

Thanks for the reply. Should I use the self leveling type of Sikaflex or is there a different type of Sikaflex I should use?
