Steps needed to resurface a pool:

Draining

Our crew needs to access your swimming pool's central pump system and switch the settings over to "drain" or "backwash". In most cases, our team would use a submersible pump to effectively get the water out of the pool. Resurfacing will commence once the pool is emptied and dried.

We'll direct the runoff water to someplace safe to avoid flooding or other complications. Draining your pool can take several hours depending on its size.

Preparation

After completely draining the swimming pool, we scan it for crumbling, blistering, cracks, and other deterioration. These marks indicate issues within your pool's plumbing or foundation. After this, we cover the pool with tarps so it stays clean during sandblasting.

Composite finishes, plaster, and fiberglass must be sandblasted or chiseled away from the underlying concrete so it can better hold the new material.

Cement and Masonry Tiles

Luxurious pools can look more appealing when resurfaced with materials such as concrete, quartz, ceramic tile, or pebble. These materials are extremely durable and are resistant to stains, algae, and other chemical-related damage. Our pool experts are experienced in pool tile applications, which are very different from interior installation. The application requires a more complex process since the swimming pool tile is exposed to water, chemicals, and other outside elements. This procedure typically takes two to three days, while masonry takes about one to two days.

Inspecting the Plumbing

In this step, our team will conduct a full and thorough inspection of your pool's pump and plumbing system. We'll test the resiliency of any plastic PVC parts and look out for any leaks. This process can take a full day.

Acid Wash and Applying the Pool Finish

Bare masonry surfaces like plaster and concrete need acid etching. Removing chalky residue and mineral deposits on a previously coated pool is very useful. Acid washing opens up millions of tiny pores that help the subsequent coating penetrate. Creating a proper and secure bond. Acid wash is also done to remove stains, calcium, and scale from your pool's floor and corners.

After the acid washing process, the acid should be neutralized using an alkaline soda ash solution.

The concrete then is cleaned using a combination of water and muriatic acid. Since muriatic acid is a very strong substance that causes harmful fumes and burns on the skin, our team is required to gear up with personal protective equipment.

Filling the Pool & Cleanup

Our team will spend several hours doing a thorough and final cleanup of your swimming pool while we're refilling it. Even though we clean up at the end of every workday, we do a final cleanup to ensure that there will be no trace of dust, dirt, or any construction debris left behind. We also do the final inspection during this time.

Initial Water Treatment

The first water treatment is the most vital step to be done to ensure that your swimming pool maintains the appearance of its new surface material. Once the pool is filled with water, treatments should be done for the surface area so it can cure thoroughly.

The first seven days of the pool treatment procedure need close monitoring. You can opt for your own pool man to perform this necessary step, and our team will be glad to consult with him just to be extra sure that it is done the right way. Our pool specialists can also do the initial water treatment procedure for you in an event that your pool man is not available.

How much does it cost to resurface your pool in Gilbert, Arizona?

The cost of pool resurfacing depends on the shape and size of your swimming pool it is impossible to create an accurate estimate without us knowing the important details about your pool. Plaster is a very budget-friendly option but it has the shortest lifespan. Replastering can really add value to your home, especially when you get it done with the help of Pool Resurfacing Plus. Issues in electrical, plumbing, and any other equipment will increase costs. Another factor that needs to be considered when estimating the cost of your pool resurfacing is the level of craftsmanship you choose to avail which depends on the style or design you want. Replacements and upgrades will of course add to your project's cost.

We offer a free, on-site consultation in and around Gilbert. No matter what kind of final finish you're looking for, our team will be more than glad to provide you with a free final quote.

What available finishes can I get for my pool?

A well-maintained pool can give you years of superb performance, depending on what finish you opt for. These are the top three most popular finishes:

  • Diamond Brite: This is a combination of polymer-modified cement in an aggregate of quartz crystals.
  • Glass Tiles: Glass tiles are a classic pool finish that is often chosen by homeowners because of their sleek look and durability.
  • Pebble Aggregate: We can get your pool finished with pebble aggregate and you've got different options including PebbleTec, PebbleSheen, Bead Crete, and Hydrazzo.

Glass tiles can make your swimming pool look stunning and they come in a range of shapes, colors, and finishes that can add a pop of elegance to your pool. This is a widely-used pool finish and it is the most durable as well. Glass tiles can be installed in a pool's waterline, edges, water walls, steps, sun shelf, interior, or outer walls. Glass refracts the sunlight giving your pool a beautiful illumination. The installation procedure of glass tiles is extensive, meaning it requires higher costs. But the results are spectacular making it totally worth it!

Diamond Brite is incorporated with natural quartz crystals, one of the hardest and purest minerals on Earth. When quartz aggregates are combined with polymer cement and non-fading quartz crystals, they make a beautiful spectrum of colors. Diamond Brite is resistant to the intense UV rays from the sun and harsh pool chemicals. It resists stains and etching and unlike plaster pools, Diamond Brite finished pools can easily be drained without obtaining damage on the surface.

Depending on what color scheme you choose, there are major differences in how each color affects the overall appearance of your pool. Colored Diamond Brite can cause the pool water to have an aqua blue color. Medium to darker colors makes varying effects. Apart from experimenting with the color of your pool finish, you can also enhance the appearance and modify the color of your pool by getting underwater lighting installed.

We call pebble finish "aggregate finish" in the industry. Most people mistake calling a pebble pool finish "Pebble-Tec" since it is a popular pebble finish brand. It is the first company to patent the specific process, this is why they are popular. But just like quartz finishes, several other companies manufacture pebble aggregate finish.

A pebble finish is made much like how quartz finishes are. The plaster mix is added with small polished stones. Because they are mostly natural stones, pebble finishes have a gorgeous marbled appearance, making any pool with this kind of finish look elegant and one of a kind.

Popular brands like Crystal Stone and Pebble Tec use larger river rock stones to some of their exposed aggregate finishes. This gives the swimming pool a different look compared to the conventional quartz products.

The Pool Resurfacing Plus crew only uses the highest quality finishes on the market. This ensures that your pool will look beautiful and will stay durable for many years to come. Pebble Tec, Pebble Sheen, and Pebble Fina are the pebble finishing brands that we offer.

The difference between PebbleSheen and Pebbletec

Pebbletec is a dependable and long-lasting finish that will give your pool an elegant look. It consists of small river pebbles that are mixed with dye and Portland cement. It is typically a non-slip surface that is crafted with a durable stone that is resistant to poor water conditions. Pebble Sheen, on the other hand, uses smaller pebbles that are around 1-2mm in diameter. The pebbles are fused in a high density and then polished to a high sheen. Pebble Sheen carries a range of selections to choose from as it comes in 16 different colors.

A summary of pool resurfacing

Choosing the type of concrete overlay to be used is the initial step of resurfacing a pool deck. This choice is made by the homeowner with a guide from a professional. The surface should have a non-skid element and should be durable enough to withstand the chemicals that are commonly used in pools.

The existing deck surface and the pool must be prepared before starting the resurfacing process. The deck should be free from cracks or divots so repairs before resurfacing are often necessary. The concrete itself may need to be replaced. These procedures protect the pool system from the materials used during the process of resurfacing. During the entire procedure, the pool is usually covered.

Old plaster from lights, inlets, drains, and tiles must be removed. This will make the finish go evenly. We use sand or water blasting to remove any paint residue and this process can take up to one or two days. To prepare the pool for the new plaster, a bond coat is applied and the entire plaster and prep time can take three to four days. Afterward, the pool should be filled out with clean water with low metal and mineral content.
