    Fibreglass pool repair in Canada

    I don't know what kind of repair you need, but I recently had some hairline cracks, patches where the gelcoat was missing and the fiberglass was showing. I then had the entire pool shell resurfaced with Aquabright. There is a search function to find an installer in Canada. The installer did...

    I just had my 37 year old fiberglass pool resurfaced with AquaBright It comes with a 10 year warranty. I do not know if there are any dealers in Oz that apply this. It is applied with a flame thrower! I only offer this as an alternative. I am not familiar with the product or process outlined...

    Much rain. What would you do?

    I'm not sure either, but my case is that mine wouldn't drain and it would just sit in the salt water. I'd rather be safe than sorry.
