    Pool Upgrade

    Greetings and happy holidays to all! I am planning on getting my pool resurfaced /painted this winter, and was wondering if anyone knew of a good contractor (orthree) working in the Tampa, Florida area? Thanks in advance for the help!

    No help in finding a contractor except to maybe call some pool builders and ask who there plaster person is. I wonder if you could call the makers of the plaster you are thinking of going with and see who has used their products in your area before?

    I do want to say I encourage you to go with resurface of the plaster instead of painting. Painting has been shown to be a shorter term fix. I bet you could do a search to find painted pools to give you some real life experiences.

    Kim,

    Great idea, I hadn't even thought about going from the plaster backwards. I agree with you on the resurface, as we're planning on being here a while, we might as well get it redone now rather than later.

    Kim has a good idea. For example if you go on PebbleTec's website they will give you a list of installers in the Tampa area. Many of them install other products also.

    We find that paint has AT BEST a three year life. The usual life is only really a year.

    Painting a pool should be illegal.

    Save your pennies and go with the plaster every time. Good luck finding someone.

    Thanks to all for the recommendations, I'm going to start shopping around after the New Year.
