What causes swimming pool tiles to crack or debond?

When it comes to underwater tiling in swimming pools, various factors can lead to cracked or debonded tiles, regardless of the facility's age. One common cause is the incorrect application or use of unsuitable tile adhesive during the initial tiling process. Surprisingly, this is a more prevalent issue than one might assume.

Improper "buttering" of tiles during installation can result in air pockets remaining underneath, leading to water ingress, the formation of gas pockets, or eventual detachment of the tile over time. Often, this problem goes unnoticed for many years until sudden failure occurs. As the grout between the tiles wears away or dissolves, water seeps beneath the tiles, triggering the debonding process. The chemicals in the water further deteriorate the adhesive, causing the tiles to lift. With the progressive deterioration of the adhesive and the increase in air spaces, tiles, especially in high-traffic areas like shallow pools, spa pools, plunge pools, wave/beach areas, become more susceptible to cracking.

What Causes Pool Time Damage?

The increasing range of exciting in-water activities offered by swimming pool facilities contributes to additional stress on the tiles. SCUBA diving, kayaking, aircrew safety training, water polo, and octopush all involve the use of heavy equipment. Regular installation and removal of goals, lane ropes, and other equipment can take a toll on the swimming pool, affecting the tiles over time.

Furthermore, modern swimming pool accessibility standards incorporate disability lifts and hoists. However, as these features are often deployed and recovered rather than permanent fixtures, they can contribute to increased wear and tear on the tiles.

Subtle factors, such as shifts in the substructure or other engineering considerations, can also lead to tile cracking or complete detachment, resulting in leaks and cracks in the swimming pool tank and/or balance tank wall and floor structures.

To ensure the longevity and safety of your swimming pool, it is crucial to address these underlying issues promptly. Access Underwater specializes in underwater tiling services and repairs, offering comprehensive solutions to rectify tile damage and prevent further deterioration. Our team of experts is experienced in identifying the root causes of tile problems and implementing effective repairs and maintenance strategies.
