RESURFACE YOUR IN-GROUND CONCRETE POOL WITH A PLASTERED QUARTZ OR PEBBLE FINISH

We highly recommend aggregate plastered finishes for all in-ground pool/spa resurfacing projects.  Below you will find a description of the finishes we recommend.  You will find that recommend the most popular and most advanced finish mixes.  We do not do Fiberglass resurfacing services for inground pools, Sprayed Epoxy (Painted) resurfacing services for inground pools, or Vinyl resurfacing services for either in-ground or above-ground pools.  We possess the technical know-how, but our experience leads us to firmly believe that these solutions offer the least value and the biggest, long-term hassle for pool owners.


Marquis Plastered Quartz Finish by Premix-Marbletite Mfg. Co.
MARQUIS is a factory blended mixture of polymer modified cement, quartz aggregates and various admixes specifically designed as an exposed aggregate coating for the interior of swimming pools.  The creamier texture of this mixture results in a better, more uniform application than some other brands like Diamond Brite.  The resulting surface is slip resistant for safety and durable for long term performance.  Custom colors are available.  Standard colors are:



            Azure                                     Bluestone                           Charcoal                             Dune


            Emerald                                 Majestic                             Marina                                Natural


           Oyster                                    Pewter

Thin Pavers
"Thin pavers are a diverse and beautiful group of products. Measuring only 1 1/8 " in thickness, they are used for overlays on driveways, patios, and pool decks. Thin Pavers create a unique upscale look without the hassle, expense, and mess of tearing out existing surfaces."

Kool Deck by Mortex
Keystone Kool Deck® concrete topping was invented by Mortex in 1962. It is a beautiful surface for swimming pool decks, walkways, patios & virtually any foot traffic area. Once applied it generates a colored, textured cement surface that is as strong as the base concrete. Settle for nothing less than the very best.  Significantly lowers the surface temperature of concrete.  Withstands thermal expansion and contraction better than concrete.  Proprietary mixture of natural substances and synthetic iron oxide pigments.  Environmentally safe.  Scrub with soap and water to keep the surface looking great.

INSTALL A SALT CHLORINE GENERATOR AND NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CHLORINE GENERATOR OR LIQUID CHLORINE AGAIN!

Our Most Popular Upgrade

"Utilizing ordinary salt, the electrolytic... cell generates free chlorine for your pool. As the salt in the water passes through the...cell, it converts to free chlorine and continuously kills bacteria and algae while maintaining the desired sanitization you need to keep your water pure and clean. When the chlorine is finished purifying the pool water, it converts back into salt and the whole cycle repeats. Easy, economical and automatic – simply set the chlorine levels and [the generator] takes care of the details. You'll have more time to enjoy your pool and spa." - Jandy

        

INSTALL A HEAT PUMP. 
PERFECT FOR SWIMMING IN FLORIDA ALL-YEAR AROUND.

"Heat Pumps simply take the heat from the air and transfer it to the water — making the heating process clean, efficient, ecologically safe and most of all, cost effective." - Jandy
 

            

Install Rope Anchors for a Rope Line with Floats

    For commercial pools, a slope transition must have a safety line mounted by use of recessed cup anchors, two feet before the contrasting marking, towards the shallow end. The safety line must have visible floats at maximum seven foot intervals.
