The Problems of a Settling Pool Deck and Pressure Grouting

By March 25, 2016Uncategorized

What you are seeing is a crack in a return line pipe that was damaged by pressure grouting and settling. The problem begins with a settling concrete pool deck. The soil underneath cannot support the weight of that deck due to many different factors. Most of the time it is originally because of improper construction.

So whats the Problem?

The problem is the soil cannot support the weight. If you pressure grout the area you just add more weight on top of the soil. In the case of this damaged pipe picture above, the grout traveled down to the pipe and encased it. Now you have a deck that can settle and it is now connected to your return line by the pressure grout.

So how did the pipe crack?

The pipe cracked when the deck settled again and then pulled on the pipe because it was connected to the deck by the pressure grouting.

So my deck is settling what should I do?
