With some of the hottest summers in the country, it’s no surprise that pools are a common sight throughout Texas. But over time the materials of many pool surfaces start to break down. This can cause them to feel rough, look old, or even leak. If this sounds like your pool, get in touch with us at Octopools. We do pool resurfacing in Central Texas using the latest methods and materials to make your pool like new.
Glasscoat, the latest way to resurface pools
At Octopools, we use Glasscoat for pool resurfacing, a state-of-the-art material that provides numerous benefits. Resurfacing your pool with Glasscoat is easy, long-lasting, and is practically maintenance-free over its long lifespan.
What is Glasscoat?
Glasscoat is a synthetic material that was originally designed to protect steel and concrete from corrosion. It is sometimes used to protect critical infrastructure so needs to be durable and long-lasting.
Since the material has a smooth finish–people often compare the texture to an orange peel–eventually there was an idea to use it as a pool surface. As a sturdy and smooth texture, it provides grip without being rough, so no scratched feet. It’s quickly becoming the go-to choice for pool owners due to its versatility and simplicity.
Benefits of Glasscoat pool resurfacing
Glasscoat as a pool surface offers many advantages including:
- Easy to upgrade. Many other materials used for pool resurfacing have a long, complicated setup process. And sometimes, it can take up to a month before your pool is usable again. Not with Glasscoat. When we do pool resurfacing in Central Texas, your pool will be ready to use almost right away. It can also be applied on top of nearly any existing material without having to slowly chip away at old surfaces.
- No periodic maintenance. Forgetting to do periodic maintenance for many pool materials can cause them to break down, corrode, or become damaged. Since Glasscoat was specifically designed to be durable, this isn’t the case. It doesn’t need to be painted or have acid washing treatments. With strong adhesion capabilities, it also won’t peel or flake.
- Looks great with a long lifespan. Although the standard Glasscoat finish is white, pigments can be blended into the composition to create nearly any color. And the color will continue to hold its luster for several years. In fact, the expected lifetime of Glasscoat is up to 20 years; nearly twice as long as many other pool materials. And it works both in standard pools and hot pools including spas.
