Austin can get quite hot during the warmer months. If you have a pool you can use, it’s an excellent source of relief and relaxation. But what if the pool surface is jagged, rough, or hard? Some days, you might take the heat over that experience. Fortunately, Octopools can help with our pool resurfacing in Austin, TX.
All of our pool resurfacing features Glasscoat, the latest advance in pool surface technology. Glasscoat feels similar to an orange peel. This lets it be soft and smooth to the touch but enough grip that you don’t slip on the pool floor. Other characteristics include:
- Low life-cycle cost with a long service life
- Practically no periodic maintenance
- Excellent aesthetic retention over service life
- Written specifications compared to plaster
- Outperforms all pebble and quartz materials and PVC liners
- 35-year track record in commercial pools

Why upgrade your pool surface?
If your pool surface is in need of an upgrade, consider having us replace it with our Glasscoat resin. It provides many short and long-term advantages over the lifespan of your pool including being long lasting, fast to replace and use, low maintenance, and with a pleasant feel and appearance.
Typical plaster surfaces last about 7 to 12 years on average. In hot tubs, this is cut in half. Our pool resurfacing has an expected lifetime of up to 20 years, meaning less worry about maintenance and replacement.
Fast replacement and use
Some methods of pool replastering take up to a month of daily touch ups before they’re ready to use. Glasscoat pools can be used shortly after installation. This means more time in the water and less time waiting around!
If you’re worried that it won’t work for your pool because you have an existing pool surface that’s different, this is unlikely to be an issue. Glasscoat has fantastic adhesion on both cement and fiberglass surfaces without any trouble.
Minimal maintenance is required to keep the pool surface in good condition. The material is resistant to corrosion and degrading and lasts about twice as long as other materials on average. Plus, there’s no need for some common upkeep like acid washing or painting.
Pleasant feel and appearance
While a durable, long-lasting material is important, it wouldn’t mean much if using it was a poor experience. Fortunately, this is where Glasscoat shines. The texture was thoroughly tested and the orange peel feel is the perfect balance of soft and smooth. No more deciding between having a smooth look or a surface you won’t slip on!
Appearance-wise, we can add pigments to match any color that you want. UV stabilizers are part of the chemical makeup as well, meaning that the color won’t fade in the hot Austin sun. So you don’t have to plan to paint or retouch the color to make sure it keeps its original splendor.
