While being surrounded by saltwater and beaches at Port Aransas is nice, sometimes you want to have a nice refreshing dip in a freshwater pool. But if that pool is rough, jagged, or too slippery to stand, it can become more irritation than relaxation. If this sounds like your pool, Octopools can help. We do pool resurfacing in Port Aransas to help restore your pool and make it better than ever.
Pool resurfacing with Glasscoat
At Octopools, we use Glasscoat for pool resurfacing. It’s a state-of-the-art modern material designed specifically to maximise your pool experience. A Glasscoat pool feels a lot like an orange peel. This texture is smooth but still lets your feet have enough grip so that you don’t slip on the surface.
Some other characteristics of Glasscoat include:
- A low life-cycle cost and long life span
- Virtually no periodic maintenance
- Retains color and has resistance to sun-fading
- Overall reduction in operating costs for your pool
- Strong waterproofing properties
- Written specifications compared to plaster
- Resistance to corrosion and degradation
- 35-year track record in commercial pools

Is a Glasscoat resurfacing right for you?
If you’re thinking about pool resurfacing in Port Aransas, consider Glasscoat. It offers many benefits including low maintenance, high durability, and works with almost any existing pool surface.
Many pool surfaces require regular maintenance to keep them in good condition. Ignoring or forgetting maintenance can cause the surface to flake or chip, cause discoloration, or even lose its waterproofing seal.
Glasscoat is extremely low-maintenance. It doesn’t need any regular touch-ups and only needs maintenance in case of major damage. It also lasts much longer than other pool surfaces, with an expected service life of 15 to 20 years.
Glasscoat is a polymer made from fiberglass and resin that includes strengthening materials. This makes it extremely durable and resistant to damage, and day-to-day use provides minimal wear and tear. It also keeps its durability without needing maintenance like regular acid washing or replastering.
Works with almost any pool surface
Glasscoat pool resurfacing is simple because it works with almost any pool surface. You can apply it on top of aluminum, concrete, plaster, PVC, and more. Application is quick and easy.
The initial application can typically be done within a few hours. After that, curing time takes about a day and then you can refill the pool once more. Contrast that with other materials that can take up to a month of daily retouching and the ease of Glasscoat resurfacing is a clear advantage.
