Asphalting in the Construction of Swimming Baths

THE basins of swimming baths should always be constructed in such a way that loss of water will be avoided as much as possible. Evaporation evidently cannot be avoided; it is still essential to ensure complete and permanent impermeability to water in the construction of the bottom and side walls of the basin. These parts must also be able to resist the eventual chemical action of water; moreover, they must have a certain resistance to eventual subsidence of the soil. Alexandre Rywosch
