Mau West Project · Swimming pool repair for a Hotel in Nairobi

The Challenge

Most of the repairs we have done on swimming pools require water to be emptied first.  In this case, the job to be done was to replace lose floor tiles and tiles that had come out, which were spoiling the attractiveness of the pool. The swimming pool belongs  to a 5-star hotel, which meant the swimming pool had to look elegant and clean at all times.

However, the biggest challenge was to do the repairs without emptying the pool. Since it was a large swimming pool that meant replacing the water back to the pool would cost a significant amount of money and time.

Another challenge we encountered was we could only use someone from our team who knows how to swim well and can swim underwater.

The Solution

Our solution was to use an adhesive that works well in wet conditions, known as THE WORKS.

THE WORKS is a Premium Quality Scypolymer Sealant & Adhesive  which is used in all areas where a seal or bond is needed.

THE WORKS Bonds and seals the following materials:

  • wood
  • metal
  • glass
  • stone
  • Most Plastics.
  • Polystyrene (will not attack material).
  • concrete
  • bricks
  • tiles
  • Roofing Material.
  • mirrors
  • plaster
  • plasterboard
  • Guttering
  • pipes
  • Door And Window Frames.
  • Cracks
  • Masonry Joints

 

Advantages

  • Quick & easy-to-use.
  • Resists mould growth.
  • No shrinkage.
  • No staining.
  • Apply in wet or dry conditions.
  • Saves time, quick curing and no need for additional fixings for most applications.
  • Excellent temperature range, can be used in any weather conditions.
  • Excellent resistance to UV.
  • Will not attack synthetic material, unlike solvent based adhesive.
  • Bonds & seals virtually any material.
  • Environmentally friendly and user friendly – no solvents, non hazardous, non flammable and no odour means it can be used in confined spaces and areas open to the public.
