Pebble Tec is believed by many to be the world’s most trusted aggregate pool finish. It is a unique product that should only be installed by expert pool professionals because when it is incorrectly installed, the results can be disastrous.
On the other hand, when Pebble Tec is properly installed, you will enjoy a beautiful, durable, dependable, and flexible pool finish that is surprisingly low-maintenance. Pebble Tec finishes have unique design characteristics that enable you to create the pool of your dreams, complete with water features and landscaping.
The initial step involves mixing the Pebble Tec stones with water, cement, and additives. This is a unique formula developed by Pebble Tec and has helped to create tens of thousands of fabulous swimming pool finishes. This formula was created after years of research and experience, and it should not be tampered with.
The special formula is then applied pneumatically to the interior of the pool. It is necessary to use a hand trowel in order to ensure the mixture is formed into an even surface. This is a time-consuming process, as only small areas can be finished at a time. Once the application process has been completed, the surface is sprayed with water to remove excess cement and expose pebbles.
You will need to leave the mixture to harden for 24 hours before an acid wash is performed as the final cleansing treatment. A special solution must be applied to enhance the brightness of the pebbles. Once the Pebble Tec installation process is complete, you don’t have to wait for plaster dust removal. You can simply fill the pool with water and enjoy the Arizona heat in the comfort of your backyard.
Simply put, Pebble Tec installation is not a DIY job. For the project to be a success, the correct formula must be used, a special solution has to be applied, and a very strict procedural process needs to be followed. Sparkle Pools has years of experience when it comes to installing Pebble Tec, and the results are always spectacular.
Those who attempt to install Pebble Tec DIY-style are completely unaware of the pitfalls of veering off the right course, and the result is an exceptionally poor end product. Ultimately, these individuals need to call in experts to repair the damage, so they end up paying for their own flawed installation, the cost of repairs, and the price of having it installed correctly!
