Converting Your Concrete Pool to Fibreglass

Converting a concrete pool to a fiberglass one is an intricate process that can breathe new life into your old pool, making it more durable, easier to maintain, and aesthetically pleasing. Pools 101 can convert your concrete pool in 4 simple steps.

  1. Initial Assessment and Planning

    The first step in converting your concrete pool to fiberglass is a thorough assessment. This crucial phase involves inspecting the pool’s structure to ensure its integrity and suitability for conversion. Pools 101 will examine the pool for cracks, leaks, and other signs of wear that could affect the conversion process.

  2. Preparing Your Concrete Pool

    The pool is first drained completely, followed by a thorough cleaning to remove algae, bacteria, and any debris. The concrete surface is then inspected for damage. Any cracks or imperfections are repaired to create a smooth base for the fibreglass over concrete pool. This may involve sanding down rough areas or filling in cracks with a suitable filler.

  3. Applying the Fiberglass

    Once the pool is prepared, the application of the fiberglass begins. This process starts with the application of a resin layer to the pool’s surface, which acts as a base for the fiberglass matting. The fiberglass matting is then laid over the resin, and another layer of resin is applied on top. This process is repeated until the desired thickness is achieved.

  4. Application of Pools 101 Non-Slip Coating and Quality Checks

    The final step in the conversion process is applying a non-slip gelcoat over the fiberglass. This coat provides a non-slip texture, and aesthetically pleasing finish and acts as a protective layer against UV rays, chemicals, and physical wear.
    After the gel coat application, thorough quality checks are conducted. This includes checking for leaks, ensuring the surface is evenly coated, and inspecting for any imperfections in the finish.

Benefits of Fibreglass Surfaces for Concrete Pools

At Pools 101, we use AQUAGUARD®FIBRETECH materials to resurface concrete pools, providing a durable, chemical-resistant, cost-effective solution perfect for Perth’s harsh climate.

Durability and Chemical Resistance

Fibreglass surfaces using Aquaguard® Fibretech are known for their durability and chemical resistance, making them ideal for concrete pool resurfacing. They can withstand years of use and exposure to harsh elements.

Structural Integrity and Flexibility

Fibreglass surfaces offer excellent structural integrity and flexibility, making them a long-lasting solution for protecting your pool against cracks and leaks. They can expand and contract with changing temperatures, ensuring your pool remains in good condition for years.

Practicality and Cost-effectiveness

Fibreglass surfaces are a practical and cost-effective solution for concrete pool resurfacing. They require minimal maintenance, reducing the overall cost of pool refurbishment. Additionally, they can be applied efficiently, allowing you to enjoy your newly resurfaced pool in just a few days.

Smooth and Stain-resistant Gelcoat Surface

The smooth and stain-resistant gelcoat surface of fibreglass surfaces makes them easy to clean and maintain. They are also resistant to staining, making them an ideal choice for pool owners who want a surface that looks great and is easy to keep clean.

Non-porous Coating for Easy Maintenance

Fibreglass surfaces feature a non-porous coating that resists algae and other unwanted growth, making them easy to maintain. You can spend less time cleaning your pool and more time enjoying yourself with your family.

Enjoy all these benefits by choosing Pools 101 for your concrete pool resurfacing needs in Perth. Our swimming pool expert technicians use the latest fibreglass technology to deliver high-quality outcomes within days. Contact us today for a free quote.

Pools 101 Anti-Slip Coating

Pools 101 only applies appropriate gelcoat materials by using a specific spray gun with air pressure manipulation to replicate the non-slip texture of the original texture from the factory. Whilst aesthetically pleasing, it serves the purpose of a non-slip surface and, unlike other non-slip products, significantly reduces the risk of grazing or cutting a person’s skin.

Other Non-Slip Products

Other resurfacing companies just hand sprinkle sand in gel coats to create a non-slip surface. The pattern is irregular and uneven. The texture is rough and coarse enough to graze/cut a person’s skin, especially kids, as their skin tends to become really soft when swimming for long periods.

No. Emptying your concrete pool for an extended period may cause damage to the pool’s surface. It is expected that when the pool is drained or partially drained and weather exposed, the plaster is subject to a certain level and degree of temperature and humidity, and the plaster temperature changes too much too fast as it will expand and contract at a different rate than the substrate/base create. This causes the plaster to detach and loosens the bond between the substrate and plaster. And consequently, the spalling, bubbles and cracks will develop on the pool’s surface.

The pool will be decommissioned for approximately eight days. Weather conditions may affect work accuracy, as dry conditions are required in fibreglass and gel-coat works.

This company is fantastic from dealing with Mark (project administrator), who was very professional, knowledgeable and provided outstanding communication, going above and beyond getting my pool resurfaced on time as promised. The project team were friendly , knowledgeable, very reliable and tidy. Tried several places / quotes, but Pools101 took the time and effort to explain the process and definitely went way beyond what the other companies I contacted did. Highly recommended 😃

All the good things I want to write about Pools 101 have already been said, which speaks very well for the professionalism of this company. Suffice to say, the quote was competitive and Mark was easy to communicate with. He managed to bring the project forward ahead of the scheduled start date due to weather(he checked it would still be suitable for us) and the crew arrived on time. They have done a great job in resurfacing our fibreglass pool and we are very pleased with the end result. I used to work in fibreglass fabrication many years ago and Mark's team demonstrated workmanship and attention to detail of the highest standard. The site was left clean and tidy at the end of each day and Mark's follow up at the end of the job is appreciated. If your pool needs resurfacing, I definitely recommend giving Pools 101 a go.

I just had our pool resurfaced by Pools 101 and could not be happier. From the time Mark came on site to the time the pool was finished it was a seamless experience. The quote was extremely competitive and the workmanship was of the highest quality. Mark was easily accessible and happy to answer any questions. The guys doing the work were friendly, very skilful and hard working. Every night the site was left clean and I was given clear information on what they were doing the next day. The finished product looks amazing and my children and grandchildren are looking forward to swimming in the pool all summer. If you are looking to have your pool resurfaced I would strongly encourage you to contact Mark at Pools 101. You won’t be disappointed. Regards Chris.
