First we brace your pool to support it's structural integrity when emptying. It limits the chance of your pool popping or bowing during the restoration process. Once props have been fixed to your pool we empty it using a pump. When your pool is empty we grind the previous gel coat. This process removes old surface blemishes and prepares the surface for the restoration process. .
Next we inspect the surface of your pool to find any cracks hollows or imperfections that need to be repaired before the first coat of vinyl ester is applied. Now that all the repairs have been completed your pool will be given a coat of vinyl ester. A layer of chop matt fibreglass is placed across the entire surface of your pool and then adhered down with a coat of vinyl ester. This process creates a shell inside your old pool and gives the surface strength.
Once the previous step has completely dried, a fill coat in the colour of your choice is applied. This coat fills in any imperfections and give the surface more strength and colour depth. After the fill coat has cured the surface is given a quick sanding to etch the surface for the final layer.
Finally the top coat is applied in the colour of your choice. We use Allnex Composites Aquaguard® Topcoat that can withstand the harsh Australian sun.
The pool restorative procedure takes a week including cure time. The curing is water-sensitive, so this entire process can only be done in fine weather.
