What you don’t see is just as important as what you see.
Preparation of the interior pool surface is critical to the long term adhesion of the new interior surface. Over the years, we have determined that removal of the surface material is the most effective process. This can be accomplished mechanically by using air-driven jackhammers or by using Water Jetting technology to blast away the existing surface. Water Jetting or Hydro-Blasting as it is sometimes called, is the future of surface preparation. Used by many industries to clean a variety of surfaces, the system uses a diesel driven compressor to create a 40,000 PSI stream of water that completely pulverizes the existing plaster surface.
Independent engineering studies have concluded that Water Jetting is the best process to remove the surface material while preserving the integrity of substrate.
This critical step, whether it is Hydroblasting or Stripping (mechanical removal), is the difference between a pool surface that is permanently bonded and a surface adhesion failure within a few years. Our ten (10) year warranty on the new surface bond means peace of mind for you and your family for years to come.
