Concrete block DIY pool

Postby archinmedes » Tue 15 May, 2012 17:38


I'm in the planning stages of building a small concrete block pool. And I need some feedback on how to finish the inside pool surface.

The walls will be concrete block filled with rebar and grout. I was planning on using a Surface Bonding Cement to smooth out the interior surface - this material will have a water proofing additive added to it.

Do I need to apply a plaster layer on top of the surface bonding cement? If the pool is already waterproof, other than esthetics, is the plaster necessary?
