Keeping Pools Level and Safe with Cantsink Helical Piles

Posted in Articles

With winter coming on, now is the best time for planning 2021 summer fun, including pool support with Cantsink helical piles.

The weight of concrete and water in soft soils can create problems without support underneath to prevent sinking and cracking. That’s why pool design should begin with proper soil testing and permanent support for years of use and beauty. Uneven surfaces in and around pools are unsightly and potentially hazardous.

Building a secure and stable pool area starts with support from deep underground to keep the structure from sinking or shifting in extremely cold or wet seasonal weather. This will provide a stable pool and surroundings through years of summer storms and icy winters.

Unyielding support is necessary especially in soil that is porous. Porous soil allows water to infiltrate, undermining support below the pool structure, and making it prone to expand when it freezes, lifting and shifting everything above.

Our products at Cantsink provide a fast, cost-effective solution for pools in areas with soft soil or locations near bodies of water, such as lakes, streams, or the ocean. Starting with support from Cantsink helical piles assures a result that will provide years of worry-free enjoyment during warm weather.

Patented design makes Cantsink helical piles the right choice for pools, patios, and decks with lasting beauty. Cantsink products are tested and certified to the highest standards of performance established by the International Code Council, an independent, member-focused association for building products’ quality.

With their self-verifying installation, our products are easy to put in correctly and help keep construction on schedule. Plus, Cantsink helical piles can be installed in tight locations with minimal disruption to surroundings. Cantsink’s long reputation for reliability and customer service has made the company a trusted resource for designers and builders throughout Georgia and beyond.

Best of all, our products are sustainable, manufactured from 100 percent recycled U.S. steel in Cantsink’s net-zero-energy facility powered with solar. Cantsink’s manufacturing facility in Metro Atlanta uses a patented design that produces less waste and provides strong, reliable support.

Not only are Cantsink helical piles the right start for construction, but they also can be used to provide foundation support for pools, patios, and decks that are sinking in soft soils. Now is the best time to check pools for signs of instability, so they can be repaired before warm weather returns.

Installers in need of helical piles can rely on Cantsink for fast turn-around on orders and unsurpassed results for their projects.
