Mike was concerned with the multiple tripping hazards and cracks that lined his deck around his pool. He was unsure of how to fix the concrete without damaging the pool. He had spoken with many different companies to have the issue fixed, but no solution was safe enough for the pool. He was about to give up until he had spoken with design specialist, Cole from MidAmerica Basement Systems.


PolyLevel is a similar technique to mudjacking, but more effective and safe for lifting pool concrete. The lightweight polyurethane material weighs less than 4lbs per cubic foot, whereas mudjacking weighs 120lbs/cf, placing less stress against the pool walls when injected. Once PolyLevel is injected under the concrete, the polymers fill the voids that have initially caused the concrete to sink and crack, and lifted them back to level. The small injection holes are only 5/8th inch holes, making the holes go unnoticed after injection is complete. And with PolyLevel being a waterproof material, rain water nor pool water will cause it to wash away. To prevent future washouts of soil from happening under the concrete, NexusPro Joint Sealant was applied to all the man-made cracks and cracks that were caused by sinking concrete. The sealant expands and contracts with concrete/ground movement, to ensure that the bond lasts and prevent cracks from worsening. Mike no longer has tripping hazards around his pool, and now has a stable pool deck that will last.

Project Summary

Pool Deck Leveling: PolyLEVEL

Design Specialist: Cole Tatge

Project Foreman: Richard Brown, Jr.

Over time, the sidewalk to the pool has sunk, allowing for water to collect and puddle in the center to the walk way.
Areas sunken around the pool steps make it unsafe to enter and exit the pool.
Lifting the sidewalk to the pool has dramatically made a difference, preventing water from puddling and creating more voids.
After PolyLevel, a 2-inch lift is noticeable from an "eye level" look.
Tripping hazards have disappeared with the help of PolyLevel. Leaving no harm to the pool.
NexusPro Joint Sealant is applied to the cracks, reducing future washouts and helping blend the concrete together.
