Types of Swimming Pools

Presented by a Swimming Pool Repair Technician

Your splashing swimming pool is maybe the most expensive investment you have made after buying your home. Thus, you have to do whatever it takes to maintain it in excellent condition. Tile cracking, as well as various failures of any of its components, can compromise the quality of the pool water. Do not put your health at risk, and call a swimming pool repair technician to tell you more about the five main types of swimming pools.

 The first one is the above the ground option. This is the most inexpensive option available for homeowners. It is easy to build even from many DIY-ers. It is really constructed above ground and it is generally easy to  disassemble and move to another location. The second type is the pool made out of fiberglass. To install this kind of swimming pool, you have to hire professionals to excavate the foundation in your backyard, install the necessary plumbing, and cover the surfaces with fiberglass coating. Repairs are easy to perform. Vinyl pools are another alternative. They are similar to the previous type but the floor and the walls are covered with vinyl lining. Gunite pools are the most popular option. It is an in-ground option again, however, the experts will add gunite, which is a mixture of cement and sand. Concrete pools are harder to build.

Pool Replastering

Posted on by 0 comment

Explained by a Swimming Pool Building & Replastering contractor

Swimming pool replastering is certainly not a five-minute job. This is a noisy and dusty process which creates a lot of mess and debris. The reasons to undertake such a project are improving your home’s curb appeal and your pool’s structural integrity. But what exactly do you have to know about it? A swimming pool replastering & building services contractor explains.

  • Yard preparation. At this first stage of the replastering project, there are some things you need to do before the contractor arrives at your place. To avoid any potential inconveniences, clear your backyard from any furniture pieces, flower pots, and other objects that could interrupt the professionals’ work. Clear the entire yard. As mentioned above, this process creates a lot of mess, so no matter how curious they are, keep your kids and pets inside your house. Close all the windows to minimize noise and dust penetration.

  • Pool preparation. Turn off the entire pool equipment, and empty your swimming pool. After it is drained, do not turn off the pool lights. After your pool is drained, it has to be cleaned of all dirt and debris with the help of the sump pump. The experts will remove all the built-up grime and will clean it carefully using specialized tools.

  • Construction. Now, the technicians will prepare the pool’s interior for replastering. How will this be done? They will remove all the existing peeling plaster and will sand the walls, paying special attention to the edges and corners. The loose plaster will be eliminated with the help of a chisel and putty knife. Sanding the pool walls is important to make the replastering process easier. After this is done, all the debris will be removed again from your pool with a hose.

  • Applying a new plaster. The technicians will prepare a new mixture of plaster according to the manufacturers’ specifications and instructions. Afterward, they will apply it onto your pool walls. The quality of the mixture is of the greatest importance. They will make the surfaces as smooth and flat as possible.

  • Painting. In this final stage, the experts will cover the surfaces with a special pool paint to ensure the ideal finish.
