This customer was experiencing settling in their Pool Deck slab due to uncompacted fill against the liner. In many cases, a homeowner will have these sections mud jacked or replaced with new flatwork. The decorative stamping on this pool deck made this a challenge because matching such a concrete surface was not an option. Conventional mud jacking would not be an option either because of the large port holes left behind by the equipment.
The Vesta Foundation Solutions team installed an engineered flowable fill called POLY Level. This POLY Level foam injection creates a stable base by compressing the soil before it is lifted. Then the slab is slowly lifted back into place by pressurizing the fill and allowing it to cure. The material is inert, green material that will be fully cured in 15 minutes.
