DIY Blocks and concrete getting closer


Jun 26, 2019
Getting closer to the “next steps” ,,, whatever that may be.

I have too many thoughts and ideas, so I’m looking for more to help me decide.

we will be using a glass tile on the entire inside of the pool.

what kind of “waterproofing” would you apply and what kind of skim coat to smooth the surface a little before moving to thin-set for the tile and grout ????
(someone has shared some specific products in the past and i can not find the thread)
