I'm afraid that is a bit advanced for this DIY project, but thanks for the suggestionAny post-tension slab work being done down there? Would that be appropriate for a pool base? I don't know what's involved, construction-wise, but don't the tensioned slabs resist cracking and movement?
Fortunately drainage is not an issue here - there are muliple drainage canals already in place deflecting rain water from the mountain and it shouldn't be a concern in my particular situation, but thank you anywayAnother thing you might consider is placing french drains at the bottom of your footers all around your pool, or at least on the uphill side. Of course that depends on your soils and how much rain you get in your area. I don't think most gunite pools are done this way, and I'm not sure if my pool has them as I did not build it, but house foundations, particularly those with basements usually have french drains placed around them for a number of reasons that may also benefit an in ground concrete block pool. Just a thought.

With the aforementined caveat, 'I am no expert', in my experience I see no reason why, when you have a pre-constructed cement block pool that has already shown that it can withstand the pressures etc with a liner, a comprehensive waterproofing process as described in my earlier post would not serve to complete the job, as it did for me.Don’t know, that’s why I linked it. With his knowledge in this area, he may be able to offer up some advice.
