Basement, not swimming pool!
Basements whose outer walls are exposed to groundwater cool off so drastically that condensation forms on the inner surface for prolonged periods of time. Mold can grow not only on the walls but also on articles stored in the basement. Such basements cannot be properly utilized without thermal insulation. Green extruded polystyrene rigid-foam panels called “Styrodur C” have prevented this from happening for 40 years, thanks to their good thermal insulation capacity, high compressive strength and low water absorption.
There is now a cherry on the icing of the panel: the PCI Pecimor DK, a water-repellant adhesive. It hardens quickly without releasing water and can be applied to the entire surface of the insulating panels.Even in the cellar, the sky is the limit!
