    AquaBrite Eco Finish remodel: $32,000?

    ...pool in Sonoma county, northern CA. The plaster is discolored but otherwise in good shape, making it a good candidate to resurface with AquaBrite Eco Finish. (Liked the smooth surface and easy startup promise.) Our PB finally got the quote back (it took a few weeks): an additional $32,000...

    Plaster, Pebble, Aquabrite, oh my! Our original quote included a plaster finish with a ~$5k upgrade to ntp stonescapes mini-pebble finish. We are also considering aquabrite, which is a lot more than the pebble. My wife and son have never loved the pebble pools they've been in -- too rough/scrapey...but we also have no...

    Fiberglass needs repairing

    I just had my circa 1984 FB pool repaired and recoated with AquaBrite. Like most jobs, the prep work is critical to a professional outcome. Here is a picture of it with the final top coat on. I haven't taken any pictures with it full yet, but will try to post some. I love the look and feel...

    Ecofinish on fiberglass panels/Hydrazzo

    Both Aquabrite and Hydrazoo are fine materials that depend on the quality of the installation. If your installer has experience with it and takes the required time to install it then you should be happy.

    Most Aquabright installers don't add tile since it wouldn't be flush like tile with a plaster finish. When we add tile it is done after the Aquabrite and we can use a silicone adhesive instead of a tile mastic that in my region allows tile mastic to draw moisture and pop tile off with freeze and...

    Glasscoat vs aquaBright

    Is there any reason you want to go with those finishes over a cement based surface? Both AquaBrite and Glasscoat are going to be very dependent on the installer, pool surface prep, and site conditions for success. I would get some references and go in person to look at jobs they have done...

    Plaster going on tomorrow!!!! Aquabrite going on Monday+Tuesday. Should have water in the pool on Wed/Thurs...can't wait!

    That makes sense--thank you =) I'm seeing not having to add waterline tile as a cost savings that helps mitigate the high cost of Aquabright!

    Considering switching from Gunite to Vinyl

    ...I weighed fiberglass vs vinyl and chose vinyl. The first house I was outbid, then I found a house with a vinyl in ground all needing to be redone and why nobody else put a bid in. Lucky me! If it were me I'd go liner or if money is no object, consider a white aquabrite surface over gunite.

    from liner to concrete pool

    There have been some conversions from full concrete shell with liner to no liner using Auquabrite. The pool does have to be plastered first so the aquabrite has something to adhere to. It's expensive, but I'm considering having it done to mine eventually.

    anyone with aquabright?

    Yes, there are mixed reviews on Aquabrite. It seems to depend on the installers skills. It is a labor intensive process and to do it right makes it tough for it to be profitable. I believe @bdavis466 used to do Aquabrite installs and gave up on that business.

    Fiberglass salt water pool-black spots

    Thanks for responding. We did shock the pool with a phosphate remover. Aquabrite. Nothing with copper. The spots are uneven. I should’ve be able to get pictures today.

    Ecofinish Aquabrite Colors

    I'm curious about your calcium staining and how they dealt with it during the prep phase. We have a fiberglass pool circa 1984 and we had AquaBrite applied two weeks ago. When they were prepping, the calcium scale from the previous owners use of CalHypo for 29 years had to be sandblasted to...

    anyone with aquabright?

    My Aquabright business was bought from me and the company that took it over is doing better than I would have had I continued. I still feel it's an excellent product but it requires a very good installer. There are some clowns out there giving the product a bad name either by install or by...

    Timer not working

    I figured it out - I took it out the case it the plastic cogs are not turning, so it seems the electric motor has gone. Looks like you can just buy a replacement motor. Easy ! (hopefully lol)
