ULTRAGUARD VS PLASTER POOL REFINISHING

UltraGuard Swimming Pool Finishes vs. Marcite Plaster Finishes

When your plaster swimming pool was first built, it should have lasted 10-22 years. When your plaster pool needs resurfacing, the longevity of the plaster is only about 5-6 years or less. Most pool contractors offer a 1-year warranty on plaster restorations. If this new plaster finish should fail they will always say your water chemistry was not kept properly. There are no guarantees on plaster pool refinishing in this industry.

Pool Chemicals
Plaster swimming pool surfaces are extremely porous and require a large amount of daily chemicals to maintain balance and cleanliness. Plaster interacts with the chlorinated water and chemicals causing the extra consumption.

UltraGuard is a 100% non-porous coating. It is the only surface in the swimming pool industry that is impervious to chemicals, acids and chlorine.
