The Pool Resurfacing Process

Resurfacing a pool can be a daunting task to anyone unfamiliar with the industry, but the process of pool resurfacing can be broken down into a few simple steps.

Draining the Pool

The first step is draining the pool. We do this by setting your pool’s central pump system to drain and using a submersible water pump to pump all of the water out of the pool in a safe manner that won’t cause any flooding or water damage to the surrounding area.

Surface Preparation

Once the pool is drained, we’ll inspect the pool and repair any cracks and leaks that we find. We’ll then use a sandblaster or power washer for all the old and damaged plaster that makes it harder for the new material to adhere to the surface.

Cement and Tile Installation

The resurfacing project can look very different depending on the type of you use. For example, applying cement is a much simpler process than installing more luxurious materials like tile, quartz, or pebble. For this reason, cement installation generally only takes one day to complete.

On the other hand, tile, quartz, and pebble can take anywhere from 2 to 3 days to install, but the extra time required is usually worth it because these materials give your pool a much more luxurious and elegant look than cement.

Plumbing Inspection

Up next is the plumbing inspection, which usually takes about a day and involves carefully inspecting your pool’s plumbing to ensure the system and all its parts function correctly. We’ll also look for and address any leaks present in your plumbing system.

Acid Washing and Applying the Finish

If the base of your pool is made of cement, plaster, or both, it will need to be acid washed to facilitate the adhesion of the new finish. Acid washing removes stains, calcium, scale, and other harmful residue and opens up pores in the surface to allow the new surface coating to penetrate into the plaster and cement underneath.

Once the acid wash is complete, we’ll neutralize the acid using an alkaline solution and begin applying and sealing your new pool finish. Then we’ll wash it down to ensure your newly remodeled pool looks even more shiny and beautiful than you imagined.

Refilling the Pool and Cleanup

At this point, the remodeling project is essentially complete, and all that’s left to do is refill the pool and clean up the job site. As the leading swimming pool resurfacing company in San Jose, it's our goal to turn your backyard into the outdoor paradise of your dreams. But we know we can’t do that if we constantly leave a big mess in our wake.

We’ll spend as long as it takes cleaning up your backyard to ensure that it’s left in an even more pristine condition than when we first arrived.

Water Treatment

The final step in the pool resurfacing process is water treatment. This step is essential to ensure that your pool cures properly and stays in peak condition for many years to come.

Close monitoring of the water treatment process is crucial in the first seven days after completion. We can guide you through the process so that you can do it yourself, or if you’d rather leave it to the professionals, we’ll gladly carry out the entire water treatment process for you.

Customer satisfaction is our number one priority, so we’re happy to move forward with this step in whatever way is most convenient for you.

How Much Does it Cost to Resurface a Pool in San Jose?

Every pool resurfacing project is different, so it's hard to come up with an accurate average cost. The total cost of a resurfacing project largely depends on a variety of different factors, including the size of the pool, the materials used, and if any significant repairs need to be made to the foundation.

Though the size and condition of your pool may be out of your control, the materials you choose to use are. Using plaster instead of more expensive materials like ceramic tiles can go a long way to reducing costs.

What Finishes Do We Have Available?

Properly maintaining your pool is essential to its longevity, but the materials you choose to resurface your pool with can also have a massive impact on how your pool will last before needing to be resurfaced again. Here are some of our favorite pool finishes that we have available.

Diamond Brite

Diamond Brite is a blend of polymer-modified cement mixed with an aggregate of quartz crystals. These crystals are some of the most durable materials on Earth, and they add additional strength to the cement while also enhancing its visual appeal with a beautiful spectrum of vibrant colors.

Diamond Brite comes in a variety of different color schemes, all of which affect the look of your pool a bit differently. While lighter colors can make the water in your pool resemble the beautiful aqua blues of the Caribbean, darker colors can create their own striking looks.

This material is incredibly durable. It’s resistant to UV rays, stains, and the harsh chemicals necessary to keep swimming pools safe and clean, making it an ideal choice to keep your pool looking as good as new for years to come.

Glass Tiles

Glass tiles are another popular choice because of their sleek and elegant look that gives off a classic swimming pool feel. These tiles come in various shapes and colors, allowing you to add vibrant colors to the designs of your pool.

Glass tiles can be installed all over your pool, including at the waterline and on the edges, walls, steps, and sun shelf, and they create a mesmerizing visual effect as sunlight refracts off them.

The only drawback to these tiles is that they require a lot of work to install, causing the installation cost to be relatively high, but as many pool owners will attest, this extra cost is more than worth it.

Pebble Aggregate

Pebble aggregate finishes are another great option when resurfacing your pool. Pebble finishes are similar to quartz finishes, but instead of adding quartz to the plaster mix, small river stones are added instead. The addition of these small stones creates a strikingly luxurious look that resembles marble and adds a touch of elegance to any pool these finishes are used in.

When it comes to pebble finishes, there are lots of options to choose from. Multiple different brands offer pebble finishes, including Crystal Stone and Pebble Tec, which use large river rocks in their products. This creates a much different look than quartz and other types of pebble finish, like Pebble Sheen and Pebble Fina.

Whether you go with Pebble Tec or any of the other brands we offer, you can count on your new pebble finish to transform your pool into a luxurious and beautiful dream come true.

Here at San Jose Pool Resurfacing & Plastering, we take pride in only offering the most trusted and highest quality pool finishing products, so when you get your pool resurfaced with us, you know that it will last. Contact us today and learn more about all of our different pool finish options.

What’s the Difference between Pebble Tec and Pebble Sheen?

The main difference between Pebble Tec and Pebble Sheen is the size of the stones that they use in the finish. Pebble Tec is made from small river rocks that are then mixed with Portland cement and dye for color.

On the other hand, Pebble Sheen mixes even smaller pebbles that are fused together and then polished, which, as the name implies, creates a beautiful sheen that’s much different than the equally beautiful Pebble Tec finish.

Both of these durable and dependable finishes create an attractive non-slip surface that’s bound to keep your pool looking beautiful for many years to come.

A Guide to the Basics of Pool Resurfacing

When resurfacing your pool, the initial concrete overlay is crucial to the project's success. This concrete overlay needs to be non-slip so that swimmers have sufficient traction when walking and incredibly durable to withstand constant exposure to the elements and the harsh chemicals required to keep pools clean and safe.

Surface preparation is also essential to the success of any pool resurfacing endeavor. If the surface has a few small cracks and leaks, it can be easily repaired. However, in the case that there is substantial damage to your pool’s concrete, it will need to be completely replaced before the resurfacing process can begin.

This preparation step can be pretty messy as it produces tons of harmful dust and debris, but there’s no need to worry. We’ll keep your pool covered so that all the dust and debris are contained, and your yard stays clean.

Once we know that the concrete is in good condition, the old, worn-down plaster must be removed. This is usually done with a sandblaster or powerwasher. Then, we apply a bond coating to the newly prepared surface to facilitate the adhesion of the new plaster to the pool's surface.

Lastly, we apply the plaster and refill your pool with clean, treated water so that your newly resurfaced pool cures properly and will stand the test of time. In all, this entire process usually takes 3 to 4 days to complete.

The Importance of Properly Maintaining Your Pool

Putting in the work to properly maintain your pool is incredibly important if you want to extend the lifespan of your pool. From small things like making sure your filters and pumps are unclogged and working correctly to larger ones like resurfacing your pool when needed, staying on top of maintenance can help keep your pool in peak condition for much longer into the future.

Here at San Jose Pool Resurfacing & Plastering, we know the effort required to keep a pool running smoothly, and we offer a comprehensive list of pool maintenance services, including pool resurfacing, pool deck sealing, and equipment installation.
