FIBERGLASS POOL WASHOUT REPAIR WITH SECURE SET

SECURE SET MIX & POUR AND SPRAY FOAM TO THE RESCUE

This homeowner saved over $17,000 by using Secure Set Mix & Pour and Spray Foam to repair a washed out area on the side of his fiberglass pool.  Both products are two component, high density, closed cell polyurethane foam, one in liquid form and the other in spray formulation.

Leaking plumbing fittings caused erosion around his pool and resulted in a bulging wall and soil seeping into the pool.  After fixing the plumbing, he backfilled with soil, only to have the problem return.

That’s when he called GRA Services about using Secure Set.  Since the void had been excavated, Secure Set Mix & Pour was the ideal choice for filling a large area.  Additional erosion was visible under the concrete decking, so Secure Set Spray Foam was applied using about 5 feet of extension tubing.  Once that cavity was filled, we switched to a fan nozzle for the spray foam and applied it in layers to the open void. 

Here’s a quick guide to using Secure Set Mix & Pour

Note, the utility size buckets seen in the video below allow for mixing large quantities of Secure Set for use with utility poles, street light poles, and stadium light poles.  Contact our office at 405-672-8885 to order utility buckets or for more information.

The Utility Buckets used for mixing large quantities of Secure Set are not sold online.  Please call us for pricing of our 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, and 5 Gallon kits. 

Watch the videos on this page to see how homeowners use both versions of Secure Set foam.

Videos showing how to use Secure Set

The videos below demonstrate two cases where Secure Set was used to fill different voids.  The first video uses a combination of the pourable and spray foam.  The second video uses spray foam.  We encourage you to watch both as there are similarities and some unique elements to each project which can apply to many other projects as well.

DIY Void Filling with Secure Set

Our customers do their research and often compare bids from contractors to rip out and replace a concrete slab or level it with other methods before deciding to use Secure Set on their own.

Two things stand out as factors in choosing to do it themselves:

  1. Cost – Using Secure Set often saves them several thousands of dollars.
  2. Time – removing and replacing a slab takes time and renders the area unusable for several days while the concrete cures.
With Secure Set Spray Foam there is no need to remove concrete, backfill and compact the soil, and then replace the concrete.  Even hard to reach or hidden voids can be filled with Secure Set.

Here’s what Guy L. told us about his experience with Secure Set Spray Foam

“I used Secure Set Foam to backfill my pool steps and it worked great! The instructions that shipped with it were easy to follow and the process was a breeze, saved me $800 doing it myself!”

Brett T. had this to say about our product:

“Used this to support pool steps and the project turned out great. Reviewed their videos for ideas and followed the directions to warm the canisters since I applied in lower temps without any issues.”
