The signs of wear and tear in a pool differs based on the type of surface, for example a concrete pool’s wear and tear is different than what you would see in a fibreglass pool. We repair cracking or blistering, punctures or tears, exposed gunite, and leaks.
A concrete pool lasts 10–15 years before it needs to be resurfaced. In addition to redoing the interior finish, you’ll usually need to replace the waterline tile at the same time.
Resurfacing typically involves chipping out the damaged material, applying a new finish and acid washing the pool’s surface.
Pool resurfacing usually takes about 5-7 days to complete.
3 Colours was engaged to restore a swimming pool in a property on Sydney’s North Shore. The previous paintwork was done with a poor quality paint which meant the paintwork was flaking into the pool. We removed previous paint layers with a grinder, washed it out with LUXAPOOL® Concentrated Wash – a ‘non caustic’ amine detergent concentrate specially formulated for removing body oil and sunscreen oil residues, then applied LUXAPOOL® Epoxy primer-sealer to provide a tightly-bound surface for the following epoxy colour coats. We finished with two coats of Luxapool (2-pack) Epoxy Pool Paint. Luxapool Epoxy Pool Paints are also well suited to application over old and new cement render, fibreglass, pebblecrete, marblesheen and also previously painted epoxies.
