You may have read on our site that resurfacing your pool with fibreglass is providing your pool a ‘new lease on life’. This project is one of the better examples of this. Once we were able to remove the water and clean the surface enough to assess the condition of the pool, it was apparent that there was a significant presence of osmosis throughout the pool.
For this project, we followed the following process:
- Drained the pool, and pressure washed the surface.
- Systematically removed all areas affected by osmosis.
- Using heat, vaporized any sub-surface water in order to provide a long lasting seal.
- Filled areas removed with a filling agent designed for fibreglass.
- Grinded pool surface.
- Applied vinyl ester resin primer coat
- Applied chopped strand matting [laminate]. The laminate formed the basis for the structural strength of the new surface.
- Applied bulk resin to the laminate.
- Applied filler-coat to enhance the surface finish and colour the primed surface.
- Applied Aquagaurd top coat. This is the final decorative colour coat which seals the laminate from water penetration.
