In fibreglass pools osmosis is of major concern and often misdiagnosed as “staining” of the pool surface. Unfortunately it occurs in most fibreglass pools around 10-15 years after they are first made, but is curable.
We have a system to treat the “bubbles’ (osmosis – rotten fibreglass) and re-laminate the pool surface adding a long lasting new fibreglass surface to the old structure. For more information specifically about osmosis, check out our blog post here.
Resurfacing of all concrete or Pebblecrete pools changes the surface from a rough & porous surface to a pleasant smooth non-permeable fibreglass surface. Where grey patches and rusting [“concrete cancer”] has occurred the affected areas are treated, repaired and fixed forever. As rust needs air and moisture to propagate, our fibreglass system never allows moisture back to the concrete surface, hence stops any further “concrete cancer” occurring.
Resurfacing of old vinyl lined pools coverts the pool from a “plastic” pool into a solid structurally sound in-ground swimming pool. The vinyl is always susceptible to tears or holes where the fibreglass resurfacing system we use adds strength and flexibility to the pool allowing for no more leaks just swimming pleasure.
Adding our waterline tiles to the pool transforms its aesthetics into a concrete looking in-ground pool yet enjoying all the benefits a fibreglass surface has to offer.
Our tried and true industry-leading technique is proven to rejuvenate your pool, and extend its life for up to 20 years. Worried that it sounds too good to be true? We aren’t in the business of hiding! Take a look at our resurfacing procedure below, and if you have any further questions please feel free to contact us today if you require any further information on our products and professionalism can restore your pool.
We begin by emptying your pool and checking your hydrostatic valve operation (where fitted).
Next, we waterblast, sandblast or grind the pool, depending on the pool surface, to remove the existing topcoat.
Apply a bonding resin to the pool surface (concrete & ex vinyl lined pools).
Apply vinyl ester resin primer coat.
Apply chopped strand matting (laminate). The laminate forms the basis for the structural strength of the new surface.
Apply bulk resin to the laminate.
Apply filler coat to enhance the surface finish and colour the primed surface.
Finish by applying the Aquaguard top coat. This is the final decorative colour coat which seals the laminate from water penetration.
Allow the pool surface to harden for 5-7 days
If you’re looking at this list and wondering how long this will all take before your pool is ready to enjoy, check out our blog post detailing how long a start-to-finish resurface usually takes!
