We drill a pilot hole at either end of the crack to ensure that it doesn’t continue to grow. Outlining the crack with a wax crayon shows us where we will make repairs and we mark along the crack with our Torque Lock Staple templates. Alternating a wide staple (6 inch) with a short staple (3 inch), we span the crack and mark the location where we will drill for the posts of each staple. We make the holes and chip out the surface layer of the pool to inset the staples.
The staples are inserted and a controlled compression is applied to the patented cam-post in each staple. This compression assures that the crack will not move, separate, shear or become wider with time. Torque Lock Staples are the only patented device to provide this kind of strength and compression. Rebar, epoxy, carbon fiber straps – those are all temporary repairs that will eventually have to be repaired properly using Torque Lock Staples – it makes sense to do it right the first time and never deal with those cracks again.
Once the staples are installed, we cover the area with a waterproofing material and then cover the entire area with new concrete to match the surrounding area of the pool. The pool is now watertight and prepared for years of leak free use. This is the only way to get a crack in a pool fixed properly.
