THE THOMAS EDISON ESTATE POOL AND WATER CISTERN
Tri Tec Painting and Waterproofing LLC. has had the honor of being a part of the historic renovation of
the swimming pool and water cistern on the ground's of the Edison Estate in Ft Myers FL. Built
by Mr. Edison in the early 1900's with cement from his Edison Portland Cement Company.
Around 100 years have past since the pool and cistern's construction and the hot Florida sun and a
couple of hurricanes have taken a toll on these historical treasures. So an extensive renovation was
needed to preserve them for future generations.
The Historic Past Meets The Future: In consideration of the historical preservation and the best
protection for the future. The necessary concrete repairs were completed with carbon fiber epoxy
injections. Then the cementitious waterproofing membrane AQUAFIN was applied to the interior
surfaces of the Edison swimming pool.
Mr. Edison may not of invented the repair process used or Aquafin but we think he would be impressed!
