I have a structural engineer claiming that the minimum thickness for shotcrete is 5-inches, which is 2-inches on either side of a 1-inch rebar mesh. The liner doesn't need to carry substantial loads, other than the weight of the water. 5-inches over the entire basin will be very costly. Has anyone heard of a thinner concrete liner approach?
