Recently poured slab is not level enough!

Postby Exebats » Thu Jul 08, 2021 7:17 am

A 6m x 3m slab (depth 150mm) was recently poured as the base for an exercise pool kit installation. one side is pretty level and drains ok. However, the other side is up to 9mm too low, and standing water collects there.

What are my options to rectify this defect?

Simply Build It

Hi exebats
Float over the area using either a rendering mix with fine sharp sand or selflevelling compound but not one containing latex.
