is for 2 basic purposes
1. Smoothing out rough pool plaster caused by calcium build up on the surface.
2. Smoothing out areas of rough pool plaster where damage has occurred.(This is not always possible because, plaster delamination can not be repaired. This is when the surface coat of the plaster fails normally in thin circular formations.)
San Diego pool plaster polishing | Why would my pool plaster need it?
This process of pool plaster polishing is a unique service. It was originally used for only one thing. That was for smoothing out or exposing new pool finishes. As the image above shows, we are honing the surface. That is, we are bringing it back to it’s smoothest condition possible. We are pretty sure that most pool and spa companies don’t even offer pool plaster polishing. It is because we have extensive knowledge of pool remodeling and pool restoration services. Giving us the unique ability to repair and restore your pool plaster finish. We are able to remove various degrees of roughness caused by scaling. It can also help smooth out any areas were the surface has been damaged. Not all damaged pool surfaces can be restored. Pool plaster polishing can not be preformed on plaster that is failing. That is when the plaster will flake up or no longer has a creme coat.
Pool plaster polishing process
The San Diego pool plaster polishing process consists of a few things. First we use a air compressor for the power. We also use a pneumatic polishing tool to perform the actual pool plaster polishing. It uses a specialized pad that smooths the surface. It works by spinning at a very high rpm while wet, smoothing out the affected area. This process is very safe, as long as the surfaces are good. problems are usually able to be identified before we start, but not always. There are occasions when the pool surface is not able to be repaired. When that is the case, we will stop work immediately and inform you of the problem.
The pool plaster polishing process can be performed on both pools and spas. It is a very common service for spa’s. That is because you are sitting on the surface and you don’t want to be uncomfortable. Often times build up is the problem. This is due to the waters chemistry. When the pH rises calcium will precipitate. That will cause build up that feels like sand paper or worse. This is even more common know with the addition of salt water pool systems. They raise pH daily and if not watched, can cause serious issues with your pool surface.
