Is It Time to Resurface Your Pool?

pool-ladyMaybe you have noticed your pool isn’t looking as fresh as it once did; there are stains and discoloration on the surface of the pool, rust marks where rebar is poking through, or maybe the surface isn’t as smooth as it once was. You aren’t sure what needs to be done, but something needs to change.

Chances are it may be time to resurface your pool. The surface takes a lot of abuse over time and is not guaranteed to last the lifetime of your pool. It’s not always easy, however, to tell if the pool needs resurfacing or if it just needs to be drained and cleaned, so we’ve listed a few tips to help you make the decision easier. If after reading this article you find that you are still unsure, give us a call. We’ll be glad to come out and help you figure out what your problem is!

Your Pool is 8-10 Years Old or More

Pool surfacing is only designed to last for about 8 to 10 years. If you keep up with maintenance and cleaning, you can probably stretch that timeline out a year or more, but not much longer.

You’re Starting to Notice Gray, Yellow, or Brown Stains That Are Resistant to Removal

This is called etching, and if you’ve tried stain removal products without success, it’s probably time to look into pool resurfacing in Phoenix.

It is Getting Impossible to Keep Clean and the Chemicals Balanced

If you’ve recently had your pool drained and you’re still having trouble keeping it clean and keeping the chemicals balanced, chances are you need to resurface.

The Surface is Starting to Feel Rough Against the Bottom of Your Feet

This is a sign that the pool’s top layer is starting to break down, and as time passes it’s just going to get worse. Pitting and chipping can be a sign of improper chemical balance, exposure, and of course, age. It is just a normal wear and tear issue that can be resolved with a new surface.

Water Levels Are Dropping More Rapidly Than Normal

This is a sign of a leak, and repairs and resurfacing are recommended immediately. The expense of the resurface may seem like a lot at the time, but it doesn’t compare to what it’s going to cost you in water bills—and repair bills—if you ignore the leak.
