Which is the best surface for my pool?
The jury is still out on what the best surface for a swimming pool really is. When you are going to build a new pool, you have the choice of marble plaster, fibreglass lining, or tiling the pool. Tiling isn’t very common in Durban South Africa, but it has been done. When the time comes to re-surface your pool, you can also choose whether to marble plaster it or fibreglass line the pool.
Fibreglassing a swimming pool surface is becoming very popular, especially in Durban – South Africa, because it is so hardy. It doesn’t get pitted (if applied correctly) which means no more stubborn black algae. It also doesn’t stain very easily, and when it does, it can be rectified in a matter of minutes with the help of corrective water balance procedures.
A tip to remember when fibreglassing your pool. Always find out what you are getting. Beware of contractors who are way too cheap or don’t belong to a professional body like the NSPI. Always get the specifications of fibreglass the contractor intends on using. For example, is it 300g or 450g chopped strand fibre? Does he use the correct underwater resin or a general purpose resin?
