Causes of Pool Deck Settlement
When your pool is constructed, the backfill material placed around is typically not compacted to minimize damage to the new pool. As a result, the backfill soil settles on its own over a period of up to around 10 years. As the backfill material settles, it stops supporting the pool deck, and voids (air spaces) form under the pool deck. Sometimes there is enough solid soil to keep the pool deck from dropping, or with vinyl pools there are sometimes brackets designed to hold up the concrete despite a lack of soil support. After the soil has settled under your pool deck, the deck starts to settle, because it’s not adequately supported. Sometimes the settlement is slow and steady, other times the concrete can crack and drop significantly at once.
Signs of Pool Deck Settlement
There are a few typical signs of pool deck settlement addressed by our pool deck repair processes:
Pool decks are typically installed with a small amount of slope. If it feels like you’re walking downhill when you step out of your pool, the pool deck is probably starting to settle.
When different slabs next to each other settle different amounts, trip hazards can develop at the joints between the slabs. With vinyl pools, trip hazards usually taper from nothing at the pool edge to the largest amount at the outside edge. Concrete pools typically develop trip hazards between the individual pieces of concrete, and also at the coping, where the deck concrete is lower than the top of the coping stones or bricks.
Sometimes cracks indicate settlement, but cracks are a guarantee in almost all concrete, so just because concrete has cracked doesn’t mean that it has settled. Cracks usually form before settlement, so they can be a good leading indicator of problems below your concrete. Filling under cracked concrete, particularly around pools, can help to stop deterioration and preserve your pool deck concrete. Usually, there’s no need to fill in cracks around pools as long as the structural problem which caused the cracks is addressed. source: concretejack.com
