Pool Renovation: is your Pool in Dire Need of Plaster Resurfacing?

By Cathy Newman Subscribe to RSS | July 3rd 2012 | Views:

Groundwater is the worst enemy of any swimming pool. This is a problem that Barrington residents are well aware of. Proof of this is the 2-year study on the community’s groundwater that the Barrington Council of Governments did in 2001. To address this problem, Barrington pool owners caulked the expansion joint between the pool’s coping and its deck.

Unfortunately, this solution only solves part of the problem because groundwater is still present under the deck and attacks the wall anyway. Because the deck around the pool is usually four inches thick, caulking the expansion joint will only protect the top four inches of the pool. The rest of the pool’s shell remains constantly exposed to groundwater. This is the reason why the plaster on a pool’s surface pops off or cracks.

Groundwater will start to penetrate the pool’s wall and attack the plaster from behind. Under normal conditions, the entire process can take as long as 15 years. Cracks and pop-offs often start at the steps and at the flooring because the walls of a swimming pool are usually thicker than its floors.

If you can see numerous areas in your swimming pool where the plaster has cracked or popped off, then you will need to have some plaster resurfacing done. You can choose to do the repair work yourself, or you could hire a pool contractor to do it for you. Bear in mind though that plastic resurfacing is not something you should do if you lack the necessary skills and know-how.

The first thing that a professional in pool renovation Barrington has will do is drain the pool. Before doing this, you need to call the Building and Planning Department in your area and ask them how to properly dispose of your pool water. In some cases, they will allow you to pump the water onto the street. Oftentimes, they will insist that you pump the water into the sewer.

You will also need to ask the Building and Planning Department or the experts in pool renovation Highland Park has about how much groundwater is underneath your pool. If there is an abundant amount of groundwater in your area, the pool water you pump out may drastically increase that amount. This may lead to your pool popping right out of the earth.

If hiring an expert in pool renovation Hinsdale has is the option you’re going for, your local Better Business Bureau will be a good place to search for an accredited one. If you plan on resurfacing your pool, visit
