What Material To Use, To Cover Icf In Pool


Hey all, im after suggestions on materials to use to place over ICF that will be flat, with no expansion

im in the process of building an ICF pool, as we know the ICF can easily be indented, as well as some damage from install and pour days. I will be placing a vinyl liner inside the pool over the ICF but i am very ocd and would like a nice flat finish prior to installing the liner.

I have thought of just using hydraulic cement to patch the existing gaps and dents however liners arnt actually that thick and you could still easily make imprints thru it, like using your feet to kickoff for swimming.

I purchased some puckboard to try then found out it had a huge expansion rate so got rid of that idea.

i've thought of Dibond (sign material) which is a aluminum double layer panel, but kinda pricey and id prefer not to use metal for the bonding and electric issue.

Ive thought of corplast (the perforated type plastic sign material often used for yard signs) which seems decent for the cost, but not sure when its under the pressure load of 20,000 gallons.

Also possible to use that cement backer board? but its pretty thick....

any suggestions?

Not a pool guy, but I would assume you ar going to have wrinkles anyway. Don't over think it.

I can get very OCD as well.

I would apply a surface bonding cement. https://www.sakrete.com/products/surface-bonding-cement

Trowel it on very smooth. Then use 1/8 inch wall foam.https://www.thepoolfactory.com/pool-wall-foam-ag60.html

spray on adhesive is used so it sticks to the wall.

Have the ICF form cutter use High density insulation boards on the interior faces next time.....

Double exterior foam thickness, use removable form work inside, leaving concrete exposed for finish coat of concrete 'plaster'?

Carbon fiber stucco mesh in top coats?

"sure-wall" type wall plaster mixes that contain chopped fiber glass re-enforcement. Might require a top coat sans fiber for fewer fiber cuts to pool users.

Foam under slabs of course?

The use of ICF creates isolated concrete panels that each need to be bonded to the Main Earth/Ground.....

Thanks for the suggestions,

Metal only needs to be bonded if within 10ft of electrical devices here
