How to Resurface Your Pool

Resurfacing a pool is a great way to give your swimming area an immediate facelift and improve its overall condition. While the process differs based on the type of pool you have installed, the goal is always to replace the existing surface material with new plaster or tile that will last longer. This will not only improve the appearance of your pool, but it will also help prevent deterioration issues and save you money on your water bill by eliminating leaks.

The first step in the resurfacing process is draining your swimming pool. This can be a labor intensive task and it is essential to ensure that you have all the necessary tools before proceeding. You will also want to check with your local government about the areas you are allowed to drain your pool as well as whether or not you need to obtain any permits before beginning this task.

Once the pool is completely drained, you will need to begin cleaning it out and preparing the surface for resurfacing. The dirt, debris and rust stains that are on the surface will need to be removed before the new material can be applied. In addition, the underlying concrete will need to be prepped and prepared for the application of the new material as well.

There are a number of different resurfacing options for your pool, including glass tiles, plaster and aggregate finishes. When choosing a finish, you will need to consider the cost as well as the durability. For example, a complete tiling job will be the most expensive option but it will also look beautiful and last for about 10 years. Plaster is a much more affordable option and typically costs around $5 per square foot. Finally, aggregate finishes like pebbles or crushed rock are another popular choice as they provide a unique and natural look and will last about 15 years.
