Aging or deteriorating plaster is not only unsightly to look at, it is also rough to the touch and hard on a swimmer’s feet. It also requires additional costly chemicals for balancing the pools chemistry do to plaster that may flake off into the pool. A deteriorating plaster surface requires more labor to keep clean and more maintenance on your equipment. Loose sand and aggregate coming out of the worn plaster finish can get pulled into the filter system and can cause premature wear to the pumps and filters.
A smooth, hard troweled plaster finish will save on chemical, equipment, time, and maintenance costs.
