Sinking Pool Deck in Florida
A pool deck has many unsafe parts, from diving boards, slippery wet areas, ladders, and not to mention the pool itself. On top of that, there are tripping hazards that derive from sunken pool decks, making pools even more dangerous. Typically, a sinking pool deck in Florida have more than a 3-inch difference between the pool deck slab and the bordering of the pool, which can easily become an eyesore but more importantly a death trap.
Poly Lift USA can fix your sinking pool deck in Florida with our established polyurethane foam injection system. Slabjacking, or mudjacking as it is commonly called, is a cost-effective alternative to replacing sunken concrete. We do this in four easy steps. First, Small 5/8-inch holes are bored through the sunken slab. Second, an injector port is installed in each hole. Third, high-density foam is injected into the port, whereupon it expands and lifts the slab. Lastly, with the port removed, the holes are cleaned and patched with cement.
If your concrete pool deck doesn’t have any visible sinking but sounds hollow, this might be a result of settled or eroded soil from the beneath your concrete slab. Weak soils are very abundant in the state of Florida. Some of these lands have not been disturbed for millions of years. Once development begins on loose soils, structural failure is almost unavoidable. For this issue Poly Lift USA uses what is commonly known as soil stabilization.
