Pool Re-Plastering Process
Note: All waterblasting and Tile &
Coping work is completed in house by members
of an affiliate company. Sub-contractors
will be used on occasion for some items
- All remodel pools will include shutting
down the system and draining the pool”
Cover removal can be done upon request
for an additional charge.
- After the pool has been drained
and the hydrostat plug removed, a saw-cut
will be made under the tile line, unless
new tile is being installed (old tile
will be removed).
- The existing pool surface is checked
for hollow areas, and then waterblasted
to remove the top surface (plaster
or paint), and achieve a sound base
surface to apply a bond coat to.
- All plaster debris will be cleaned
up and hauled away.
- All fittings, lights, rope anchors,
and a band under existing tile is chipped
out to allow for a smooth transition.
(if new tile is desired, it would be
installed prior to the bond coat application.)
- The pool will then be acid washed
and neutralized, and the bond coat
is sprayed on to the surface as the
final prep stage. Usually, the pool
finish is applied within 48 hours of
the bond coat.
Upon completion of the replastering
process, our crew will start filling
the pool before departing. Important
points that the customer should be aware

to reach the deep end of the pool.
The pool must be filled from deep to
- Water must not be turned off until
pool is completely full!

also includes pets, as mud will stain
the fresh, uncured pool surface finish.
- After the pool is filled, proceed
with the “recommended start-up
procedures” left by our plaster
