New to the forum and I have read many threads and can't quite get the question(s) I need answered. I am interested in building a cement block pool with slab bottom, as I would like to tile the entire pool. I am a contractor and have a thorough knowledge of block filled with concrete and rebar construction/design. My question(s) is in regards to the process after the block is installed. Should I waterproof the block and then plaster it, or should it by plastered and then waterproofed? It is my intent to use hydroban from laticrete for waterproofing unless advised otherwise. Also does the slab need to be plastered (i assume yes but not 100%)? Thanks for any advice you can provide as I'm sure there will be more questions to follow.
