We were asked to do a resin repair to Center Parcs’ Subtropical Swimming Paradise pool at Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire. Despite the fact the site hadn’t been open long, the resin screed in the pool was starting to break up.
Center Parcs is a busy venue and it was imperative to keep the pool open to allow the guests continued access until it closed at 10:00pm. The pool was then drained and we used a resin (MMA) that cures in 2 hours to make the repairs. The pool was then refilled ready for the guests to use in the morning.
Once the pool had closed at 10.00pm, the maintenance team at Woburn drained the pool and Robex Contracting had access to it from midnight. The damaged areas were force dried using a gas bottle and then prepared using a handheld diamond headed grinder. Robex Contracting used its rapid setting MMA resin; the areas were primed and then the resin rich mortar was then installed and troweled in place.
The pool was then ready to be filled early the following morning and there was no break in pool access for Center Parc guests.
