I encountered for the first time in my career an issue with a swimming pool. I never designed one so far. I was wondering if there is any specific code by the ACI on this matter. I would assume that ACI 318 and the IBC should be the default codes to refer to. The actual problem was with rebar being too close to the surface and moisture went through, so now we see rust coming out. The swimming pool is used with saline water to emulate seawater, but I think that should not be an issue, and I say that thinking that if the proper coverage was applied, there should be no problem for any type of water (saltwater or chlorinated) to cause rust to the rebar. The location of the rebar is about 3/4" from the surface of the water at those two locations, which is definitely not ok with the ACI 318, to begin with. Please advise if there is any other code I should refer to. Thanks

Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
