Is it possible to make a ceiling of EPS in the pool?
In the pool I plan to make the ceiling with projections. I do not want to do them with moisture-resistant gypsum boards, I found information that in a few years it will swell, better to do with aqua panels. After reading a little bit about them, I realized that this is something like EPS.
Question, can you do it with EPS, or do they still have other properties?
You misunderstood. Aquapanel has nothing to do with EPS.
Well, wouldn't EPS work? Isn't it also impermeable to moisture, stronger than gypsum, etc.?
Do you understand that EPS is polystyrene foam?
@JochemBusscher Yes, extruded. I ask these questions, because I met the information that in the hammams, people do lay off EPS. Why not the ceilings? The main purpose is that it would not absorb moisture and as I understand it has this property EPS!
Hamams are made with EPS for the purpose of thermal insulation. In the case of the ceiling, further processing is more difficult, the probability of cracking is 99%
There are cheaper alternatives for the ceiling in the pool room, so that in a couple of years would not have to be redo?
If only for a couple of years, then install moisture-resistant drywall. And if you have a good ventilation system, it's good for 10 years. Or a suspended ceiling.
