What Is Pool Plaster?
Plaster is an essential part of every in-ground pool. Simply stated, pool plaster is the final coating applied to the shell of a concrete in-ground pool. It adds a watertight seal and creates a smooth surface on the pool floor. Aesthetically, pool plaster gives your pool its finished look. While some DIYers may tackle a pool plastering project, it’s really a project best left to experienced professionals.
Options in Finish
Pool plaster has come a long way over the years. Traditionally, plaster is a mix of white Portland cement and marble dust with additives for strength and ease of application. Today, you have a variety of options to achieve your desired look without breaking the bank, including:
- Pebble with glass
- And more
Wet Edge and SGM are popular products we use for many of our projects.
Water Color + Plaster
Water color affects the overall look of your pool and your choice of plaster influences this. The depth of the pool, the amount of sunlight the pool gets, the hardscape and foliage around the pool, and the water chemistry also play a role in water color. One of our experts can help you select the plaster to achieve the water color and overall look of your pool.
But Wait, Is It Time to Replaster?
We recommend replastering or refinishing your pool about every 7 years. If your pool is properly maintained and the water is kept under ideal conditions, this time may extend by a couple of years. That being said, we suggest proactively checking your pool for early signs of wear and tear.
Here are a few signs that it may be time to replaster:
- Plaster is flaking or peeling
- Surface stains
- Check cracks (can look like spider webs)
- Structural cracks
- Rust stains
- Paint or fiberglass failure
Choosing the right plaster for your pool may seem a bit daunting. Pearl Pools offers many options in pool finishes and can assist you in selecting the perfect plaster for your project.
