After a while, the swimming pool that you have invested time, resources, and energy to maintain will eventually wear down. You will notice that the bottom and walls of your swimming pool have become rough, uneven, and even sharp in certain places. These issues make the condition of your supposed happy place where bonding moments with friends and family take place, to be less than ideal.
Once the original plaster used on your pool becomes rough, the rest of its surface becomes unsightly and, worse, potentially dangerous. Once this happens, you’ll need to come up with a sound plan in order to restore your pool to its former glory.
Pool Plastering Las Vegas NV : Installation Process
In a nutshell, pool plastering is the process of adding a new layer of mortar on the entire interior surface of your pool that already has an existing plaster layer. It is one of the more common yet expensive maintenance procedures that you’ll need to do if you own a swimming pool.
Upon installation, either gunite or concrete is used to form the pool shell. However, both are known to be porous substances which means, they are unable to hold water over time. As a result, you will have to keep refilling the concrete or gunite shell since it empties out on its own rather often.
What Las Vegas NV installers usually do to address this concern is to add a layer of plaster which not only keeps the water from draining out but improves the feel and look of your pool surface as well. A newly-plastered pool is typically shiny and smooth with a shade of blue.
