Types of Pool Surfaces

Pool resurfacing is a pool service that is an integral part of your Cape Coral FL pool maintenance. There are several reasons why it is done. The most important among them is to prevent the pool from leaking. Over time, the pool finish gets damaged because of the chemical wear and tear along with the influence of the elements. When your pool is chalking, when it is getting more difficult to keep it clean or when you have calcium build-up in the pool, it is time for a pool resurface.

The different types of pool surfaces are:

blue mosaic1.Marcite For a long time, marcite was considered to be the best product on the market for resurfacing a concrete pool. This was so because it used to be very long lasting (20-25 years). In the last 10 years, however, this has changed. Marcite used to contain asbestos, and EPA ruled that asbestos should be removed from the plaster, because it was carcinogenic. It was exactly asbestos what gave marcite its durability and strength. Modern, asbestos-free marcite lasts only about 5 years. Marcite remains, however, the cheapest product.

2. Exposed aggregate series.
The exposed aggregate series is the most popular pool resurfacing product. This pool finish is characterized by its durability and attractiveness. The aggregates are available in a variety of unique, eye-catching colors.

3. New pool finishes
The natural pool finishes can make your pool look like a blue lagoon or an ocean. This is due, to a great extent, to the advancement in modern pool resurfacing technology, with which you can achieve effects that are impossible to accomplish with marcite. These finishes come in dozens of different colors and each of them can change the appearance of your pool completely. Combined with the modern tiles that are available, they can turn your backyard pool into the perfect, aesthetically pleasing place for relaxation.
