Pool plaster is a unique element in that it is always submerged in water that is treated with chemicals. It is different than other types of plaster materials. Use the following as a guide when discovering more about different pool finishes.
White pool plaster has been a standard finish for many pool and spa surfaces. For as long as people have been swimming and soaking, white plaster has been around and remains a popular choice even with the introduction of new materials. The strength of white plaster is that it offers a clean, light, blue appearance when the water fills the pool.
It is also more affordable than other plaster options. The concern with white pool plaster is like that of all plaster concerns in that if the chemicals within the pool are not properly maintained you can expect a change in the plaster’s appearance. With white plaster these may stand out more than they would with a colored plaster.
Some pool owners choose to use plaster with additives added. These additives hide the imperfections that come with time from white and colored plaster alone. These highly innovative chemical additives are combined with the plaster before the application process. The additives change the physical and chemical composition of the plaster and essentially strengthen the plaster, making it more durable without having to sacrifice the aesthetics and texture. These additives do tend to add to the overall cost of the plaster but added longevity may make it worth it.
Another option is aggregate. This is a special ceramic coated sand that is pre-mixed into the plaster. There are many benefits to aggregate.
It offers a wide range of color options from basic beige to vibrant greens. It also creates a surface that is stronger than white plaster alone. It is the most expensive pool plaster variant and can be susceptible to surface issues if the water chemistry is off.
