    Concrete Pool Shell Problems | Weepers, Efflorescence, and Calcium Nodules

    Eric explores three common consequences of water penetrating through a weak concrete pool shell. No, concrete is not waterproof. Weepers, efflorescence and calcium nodules can occur when water migrates through concrete. Good shotcrete application and curing is usually enough, but sometimes additional waterproofing is necessary.
