Don’t let homeowners cheap-out on fixing structural cracks properly. Do it right the first time with Torque Lock Structural Staples and spare them the expense of multiple repairs. There are a number of times, as a contractor, that a customer will opt out of the installation of Torque Lock Structural Staples because filling a crack with epoxy is less expensive. Don’t try to argue with them about it, just state the facts and wait for the phone to ring.
It’s true, when homeowners have to consider spending a couple hundred dollars per linear foot of crack repair, they are going to consider other less expensive options for fixing structural cracks, but those options are short term fixes and the pool is still going to leak. This situation isn’t at all uncommon.
A customer notices water loss in their pool and after a proper leak detection, it is confirmed that a structural crack is causing the leak. The customer learns that the pool is to be drained, the surface of the pool is will be cut, Torque Lock Staples get installed and the surface will be re-finished. When the pool is filled, the water loss stops. This is the only option they have to provide the benefit of a controlled compression to keep the crack from separating, or re-cracking with time. After all, if the crack began, the reason of why it cracked isn’t going to go away with a band-aid repair. Maintaining the strength of up to 5000 lbs. of compression around the crack with Torque Lock Structural Staples, however, is going to ensure that the crack won’t separate any further, but it isn’t a $100 fix.
