Pool plaster repair

Plaster patching involves taking steps to fix a finish without fully taking off the existing  plaster to the the concrete shell. Furthermore, there are often many times that the root cause for plaster damage is simply a lack of proper care. Repairing instead of replacing will let you salvage what you have instead of loosing part of the summer swim season. Instead of tearing your pool apart for months, pool plaster can be saved if the existing plaster is in good condition. Resurfacing is the process that allows us to plaster over the existing pool finish.  Pool plaster repair is our another service we offer in Green Bay Wisconsin.

Plaster Repair and polishing

Super sharp pool plaster can start from bad water chemistry too.  Sharp plaster can hurt the feet and skin. Pool Envy polishes sharp spots on stairs, floors, walls into a smooth finish.  Polishing will remove sharp edges off existing plaster. Moreover, polishing can be performed  without draining the pool. Check out the gallery below of very old pool plaster that we polished. Moreover for the finest of the best, we have started working with CL Industries products as an authorized applicator. Additionally, Pool Envy is a  SGM as a dealer  Our new partner work on may different plaster and pebble brands too!

Restore versus Replacing

New plaster life depends on the ability of the pool owner to make regular pool chemistry checks and adjustments.  New plaster startup takes 28 days to complete.  Plaster repair involves polishing the defective surface areas into existing plaster to level out issues.  This can be done on new finishes that need surface correction.  Too often, builders cut corners and produce plaster finishes that have an ugly finished look.   Also, common startup issues involve water chemistry. Pool Envy does not expose plaster finishes with muriatic acid and will retain your plaster warranty upon installation.

Pool Plaster Repairs

Damage to plaster happens after a long winter of freeze and thaw.  Plaster repair involves filling in certain spots that do not look good and then blend them into the existing pool finish. This is a lower cost option when small areas need improvement.  Plaster is a natural product, and results vary on the condition of the existing finish. Smaller repairs provide maximum good looks without major time commitments.

Pool Plaster repair application safety

I do not recommend DIY for pool plaster as there is a large learning curve but, pool plaster is a cementitious product and that means it contains cement.  As this product cures, it can be dangerous for skin contact.  Pool plaster is highly alkaline just like concrete.  Wearing rubber gloves is important when handling pool plaster to avoid skin burns.  Wipe off any excess plaster immediately as well.  Protecting your eyes from plaster is important as the plaster can be next to impossible to remove if you get it in your eyes.

Our company will need to ensure your swimming pool meets current safety codes prior to replastering. These checks include electrical safety and bonding.

Plaster stain removal

Instead of burning the plaster finish with muriatic acid to remove stains, we utilize safer methods to accomplish the same results.  In the video below, we demonstrate stain removal of iron within a public swimming pool.
