Pool Resurfacing Options

Pool resurfacing is last thing on your mind and nobody wants to here that their pool need to be resurfaced. All swimming pools, no matter how well built, will at some time in the future need to be resurfaced. Like everything in life, a swimming pool has a lifespan and over time, exposure to the elements and various chemicals can eat away at a pool’s surface.  Once you’ve decided to have your swimming pool resurfaced, you are likely to encounter a problem that will confuse you. The problem is regarding what material to use to resurface your pool: whether to choose a Marbelite, Epoxy Paint or Fibreglass.

 

Are Marbelite pools the best choice? On the other hand, has fibreglass taken over as the preferred pool of the new era? I’m sure you’ve heard arguments for both.

 

Which one is better? Ask 6 friends and some of them that own a Marbelite pool,will likely tell you to choose Marbelite whilst the others insist Fibreglass is the only way to go because they own a Fibreglass Pool.

 

Looking to get information from Pool Contractors has probably made things even worse. You see, most Contractors only install one type of pool material. If they install Fibreglass, then they say Fibreglass is the ONLY way to go. If they install Marbelite, then they say such statements as, “A pool is not a pool unless it’s Marbelite” etc, etc… The Poolice | Pool Repair Company are Pool Resurfacing Experts and work with all resurfacing methods and materials.

 

Here’s a quick rundown of the best resurfacing option

Here’s a quick rundown of the best resurfacing option

Epoxy paint:

In most cases, epoxy paint is the cheapest resurfacing option, But it also has the shortest lifespan. Fibreglass and Marbelite have a life expectancy of anything from 10 – 15 years, Epoxy, anything from 2 – 7 years. While not a long-term solution, painting your pool with high-quality epoxy paint is easily the most affordable choice. Many Pool Companies will tell you that painting a rundown pool surface is just a Band-Aid, but if so, it’s a Band-Aid that can buy you time while you save for a more expensive renovation project down the road.

Marbelite Pool Resurface:

Marbelite has been around for more than 50 years and is the most common finish for residential pools. It is a tried and tested product that is used all around the world and most architects are happy to recommend it as a pool surfacing liner. Why? Because it has stood the test of time and there is no better bond than cement on cement. Marbelite pools require a bit more TLC to be kept in top condition. Built correctly and maintained with proper care, you can expect a marbelite pool to last for about 15 years until you need to re-marbelite. Algae on a marbelite or re-marbelite pool should not be allowed to form as it can cause staining

Fibreglass Pool Resurface:

Fibreglass Pool Resurfacing (not to be confused with fibreglass pool shells) is the art of applying Fibreglass to existing damaged or worn Marbelite pools either for cosmetic, curing a leak or strength purposes. Fibreglass is a nonporous material, is naturally algae resistant, thus requiring less pool chemicals over time. Choosing fibreglass as a pool finish can reduce the use of chemicals by up to 30% Fibreglass has a 15-20 year shelf-life, with a wide range of mosaics to choose from. Any pool size or shape can be relined with Fibreglass!

As with any product, there are pluses and minuses. However, as you have discovered from your research, the key is workmanship and, on your end, maintaining the proper water chemistry to ensure a long life for your swimming pool.
