The Mikveh we offer here is based om simplicity. In execution, in the structure’s strength, and in its endurance over time, as well as ornaments with a few instructions.
Phase 1: digging and casting lean concrete.
Phase 2: preparing the iron mesh in the floor and walls.
Phase 3: installing of inner and outer iron molds, and strengthening them without spacers between the molds (forbidden by Jewish law), but by using special construction.
Phase 4: one- step casting of the floor and walls in concrete with special admixture, which give the concrete unique resilience against water and chemical penetration.
Phase 5: dismantling the molds and smoothing of the concrete in the joints between the mold- parts, so that it integrates with the smooth concrete of the mold.
With that, the phase of the immersion pool preparation ends. There is no need for tiles and/or paint. A solution that is considered an ornament is when the tiles and/ or paint seem to divide between the water and the natural concrete.
Later, the outer structure is installed, according to the ability and desire of the owner, as well as the filter and radiator for heating, and the plumbing to carry rainwater from the roof to the Mikveh.
