A pool resurface will waterproof and repair a pool

A pool has to waterproofed, which protects the overall pool structure. The waterproofing will breakdown due to exposure to the chemicals, sun, elements, and time. Therefore, you must re-waterproof your pool. This is known as resurfacing the pool. Periodic pool resurfacing is necessary. The timeframe is contingent on the type of pool. But it is also based on how well (or how poorly) you chemically-treat and maintain your pool. If you take care of your pool, you will not have to resurface it as often.

The resurfacing options are based on the type of pool you have:

⇒ Concrete Pools:

You can re-paint a concrete pool. Or the paint can be sandblasted to be removed and then the pool can be resurfaced with an epoxy system. When concrete pools have too many layers of paint or if there is poor adhesion between pant layers, then opt to have the pool sandblasted and resurfaced with epoxy.

⇒ Hybrid Pools:

A hybrid pool has a painted concrete floor and gel-coated fiberglass walls. You can re-paint the concrete floor. Or the paint can be sandblasted to be removed and then the concrete floor can be resurfaced with an epoxy system. The fiberglass walls will only need to be resurfaced if there are problems with the gel-coat or if the fiberglass has previously been painted. If painted, the paint on the fiberglass walls can be sodablasted, geoblasted, or manually removed and then the fiberglass walls can be resurfaced with an epoxy system.  

⇒ Fiberglass Pools:

An application of gel-coating waterproofs a fiberglass pool. You must contact a pool company that specializes solely in fiberglass pools when it needs to be resurfaced. If you cannot find a pool company, then contact a specialized fiberglass company.

⇒ Vinyl Liner Pools:

A liner waterproofs a vinyl-liner pool. Once the liner ages, becomes brittle, and certainly develops rips and/or holes, then this liner can be removed and replaced with a new liner. This is known as a liner replacement.


We hope this help.

We recommend you contact ASAP Pools if you need a liner replacement.

Residential Fiberglass Pools:
We still will not resurface one-piece fiberglass pools due to the liability associated with draining a fiberglass pool. This is primarily true if there are no indicators of proper groundwater evacuation under the pool or proper drainage around the pool. You must contact a pool company that specializes solely in fiberglass pools if yours needs to be resurfaced. If you cannot find a pool company, then contact a specialized fiberglass company.
