Concrete decking

3024 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bf1024
my customer has an old concrete pool that was cast together with a 2.5 ft decking around it (see pictures). the pool has multiple structural cracks and I am wandering if we should sawcut the decking or not.

I dont know if this deck/band around the pool adds to its structural strendgh or is the cause of the cracks.

What do you think we should do? thanks

It won't help. the decking adds no structure to the pool. Any pool guy should know this.
If multiple structural cracks through wall, it's probably not worth trying to save, looks like a really small pool anyway. (10' max by maybe 20')
