    How long does Ecofinish Aquabright last? What problems have people had?

    I contemplate having my pool redone with Aquabright. I live in the tropics in the Caribbean, Bonaire.
    My pool was renovated 4 years ago but the tiles and poolcoat all started to come off in 2.5 years..
    Salt water system.
    What problems have people had with this Ecofinish product, Aquabright?
    Are there any people here with experience with Aquabright pools in hot climates for a longer period than let us say 5 years??? How has the pool been doing?
    Thanks a lot for any information!

    Do you even have an AquaBright installer in the Caribbean?

    We do not have any long time AquaBright owners. I think our longest pool owner with AquaBright who has posted reviews has had it for a little over 2 years now. One of our forum Experts is actually a builder in southern California and he's a licensed AquaBright installer. Maybe he can come along and answer your questions.

    I saw a pool near the factory in Pennsylvania where the product is made that was 10 years old. It looked just fine.

    My oldest pools are about a year old now and they too show no ill effects.

    Is there an installer in your area? If not I'd be happy to travel and do a terrible job so I get called back every month

    Rumor has it Kenny Chesney has a house somewhere in the Caribbean and he has AquaBright in his pool. If it's good enough for him....

    Good news; a pool 10 years old.... But the climate on Bonaire is very very destructive....never heard of Kenny Chesney but looked him up and he looks like someone living in the Caribbean...

    What does your installer have to say?
