What is the best material to refurbish a swimming pool?

The best material to refinish your swimming pool suits your budget and aesthetic tastes:

  • Plaster – Plaster is one of the cheapest swimming pool resurfacing materials, as such it’s also very popular. Unfortunately, it’s also the weakest material and requires more frequent touch-ups as a result.
  • Pebble – A mixture of rock pebbles and plaster make this a durable, popular pool resurfacing material. The roughness of the pebbles is an aesthetic feature that some may not appreciate.
  • Concrete – Strong and capable of withstanding much wear, concrete is an ideal material for resurfacing. Once dried, concrete can be painted in any colour to suit the decor of your pool design

How much does the average swimming pool refurbishment cost?

The average pool remodel can cost anywhere between £5,000 to £20,000, in some cases even more if the surrounds are also being refurbished. A complete outdoor pool transformation can cost up to £50,000 depending on the scale of the project.

How often should you refurbish your pool?

A concrete swimming pool should be resurfaced at least every 10-15 years, depending on how well it has been maintained. You may find that other aspects of the pool will need maintaining at the same time such as the tiling, surrounds or filtration systems updating these more regularly can make your pool system more energy efficient.

What happens if you don’t refurbish your pool?

If you don’t resurface your swimming pool you may leave it susceptible to damage as a result of cracking pool liners, algae stains, leaks or even injuries due to an uneven surface developing over time.

How do you know when your pool needs to be resurfaced?

Your pool needs resurfacing when it starts displaying the following signs:

  • Peeling Plaster – This is caused by a low pH level and is a common issue that can only be solved with resurfacing the pool.
  • Rough Spots – The sides of your pool can become rough in places over time, which can scuff feet and compromise the integrity of your pool.
  • Algae stains – Algae bloom can occur when over time, whilst these stains can be removed with an acid wash, they are a telltale sign that the pool needs resurfacing.
  • Chalky Residue – Clouds of residue or chalk collecting around the edges of your pool suggest that ‘chalking’ is taking place, and the surface of your pool is seriously compromised.
  • Sudden Drops in the pool Water Level – Plaster fatigue or poor fitting can lead to cracks forming and loss of water. Resurfacing cafn fix these cracks and secure your pool again.
  • ‘Spider Web’ Cracks – These tiny cracks can occur on the plaster and within the pool structure, and are often hard to spot. They should replastered to avoid getting any worse.
  • Large Structural Cracks – Major cracks in your swimming pool are a clear sign that resurfacing needs to take place.

Can I resurface my own pool?

Resurfacing your own pool is possible, however, it is a time-consuming project which involves a wide variety of tools and skills to do properly. To do so you must successfully:

  1. Drain the pool.
  2. Clean the pool.
  3. Prepare the surface.
  4. Prime the surface.
  5. Finish the surface.
  6. Dry & Refill with water.

How long does pool paint last?

Pool paint lasts between two to five years, depending on the quality of the paint and the use of the pool. An epoxy-based paint usually lasts five to seven years, whereas acrylic paint will typically last only two to four years.

How long does a pool surface last?

A plaster pool surface can last between 15 to 25 years, however, it will inevitably require touch-ups, sanding and replastering in places as the years go on. Concrete pool surfaces can last much longer, in some cases longer than 40 years. Meanwhile, a pebble pool surface could last up to 20 years.
