Causes of a Sinking Pool Deck
Owning a swimming pool can be a great experience for a homeowner… until a problem occurs.
Concrete pool decks are prone to settling as a result of the pool construction process. Previously stable, compacted soil has to be removed in order to install the pool. Although the soil is replaced (backfilled) after installation, it will rarely be as dense or well-compacted.
Even though the pool contractor will pack the soil as much as possible, the backfilled soil inevitably compresses under the weight of the concrete pool deck slab as it ages, creating voids or holes and causing sections of the pool deck to settle or sink over time.
Sinking pool decks are a fairly common problem. Unfortunately, in addition to looking unsightly, sunken decks may also be accompanied by other signs of stressed concrete, including cracking and crumbling. If a crack is wide enough, water splashed from the pool and rainwater can make the cracking worse and lead to excess soil erosion under the deck.
These problems can lead to tripping hazards or create stress or pressure on pool walls and pool joints that may cause the pool to leak.
