The restoration work on the Neu-Isenburg forest swimming pool started in 2009. First phase of construction: the swimming pool diving platform.
Substrate before levelling with PCI Novoment Z1 plus aggregate grain. The substrate had to be prepared "with maximum grip"; PCI Repahaft was used as the bonding agent for the levelling mortar.
Due to the swimming pool's fixed seasonal opening dates time was pressing. This is why fast setting screed cement PCI Novoment Z1 plus aggregate grain is needed for the mortar that tile company Hoffelner's employees are laying here. Advantage: The reliable professional fast setting cement stays workable for a long time and then sets quickly. PCI Novoment Z1 can be overlaid with ceramic coatings as early as after approx. one day.
An approach that has already proven itself in scores of restoration projects – in the swimming pool sector too: levelling mortar with PCI Novoment Z1 fast setting cement plus aggregate grain in the overflow channel as well as in the pool's raised edge section and in the pool surrounds.
Egon Pfuhl, skilled employee and tile laying professional of the Hoffelner company, is cementing blue System Finland II stoneware handhold-pieces by manufacturer Agrob Bruchtal, a Deutsche Steinzeug company. The corresponding grooved edges are also a part of the System. Visible on the far side of the channel: Chroma NonSlip tiles 25/12.5 (colour 69 oatmeal) with slip resistance -/B.
After its restoration the swimming pool diving platform gleams with new lustre.
The forest-ringed swimming pool in Neu-Isenburg is maintained in an exemplary manner. The pool edge systems of all the swimmer's pools were renewed step-by-step in the course of the 2009-2014 restoration. The swimming pools are set in a park covering about two and a half hectares and featuring an old stock of trees that provides visitors with shady spots on hot days.

Guests at the forest-ringed Neu-Isenburg swimming pool are sure to have a great time outdoors: A swimming pool diving platform with a 5-metre diving tower, a 50-metre swimmer's pool and a large non-swimmer's pool are situated in a park covering about 2.5 hectares and featuring an old stock of trees. However in 2009 restoration became unavoidable due to substantial damage at the poolside edge of the overflow system. Because of the pool's seasonal operation the work stretched over a period of more than five years. The owner engaged the tile company Hoffelner GmbH to renew the pool edge system.
The chiselling work on the diving pool began in the autumn of 2009. Four tilers were busy with the restoration non-stop. The work was always started in the autumn and – depending on the severity of the winter – resumed in the spring. All told the pool edge was repaired at a length of approx. 150 m on the swimmer's pool, approx. 180 m on the non-swimmer's pool and approx. 60 m on the diving pool. In doing so the entire existing structure at the poolside edge had to be gradually removed from each pool or prised from overflow channels and old screed mortar down to the load-bearing concrete foundation. Then the Hoffelner company's employees brought the pool edge to the required height using a PCI fast setting screed cement.
Time-proven approach: carefully laid levelling mortar with PCI Novoment Z1 fast setting cement plus aggregate grain in the overflow channel as well as in the pool's raised edge section and in the pool surrounds with PCI Repahaft as the bonding agent. After priming with PCI Epoxigrund 390 the Hoffelner company's specialists waterproofed the pool edge with PCI Apoflex W. Tiles and overflow channels were laid with PCI FT Extra in the low void "Combined Procedure" according to DIN 18157-1; the grouting was done with reaction resin mortar PCI Durapox NT plus.
