At Aquat Art Pool Finishes, we offer aquaBRIGHT™ and polyFIBRO® pool finishes.
For decades swimming pools were coated in a silky white rubber-based paint finish. In addition to the smooth texture and bright white look, this type of paint was known for its durability against stains and imperfections.
This forced swimming pool builders in many regions to switch to plaster finishes. Plaster has its own set of issues, in the form of a long and complicated start-up process (Hot-Start), as well as staining, shrinking, and cracking problems. aquaBRIGHT was scientifically developed to present a solution to these aquatic finish problems. The long-lasting thermo-polymer finish, aquaBRIGHT is the wave of the future.
Some of the benefits of aquaBRIGHT™:
Compared to colored masonry finishes, aquaBRIGHT has a more uniform color across the entire swimming pool and as the pool ages, the installation of an aquaBRIGHT finish will not "mottle" or fade in larger blotchy clouds.
Why Pay For Trucked Water?
If left alone, most curing masonry finishes will dry out and crack if water is not immediately placed in the pool. Because of this, it is a common practice to truck in water to protect the new finish. Once installed, the aquaBRIGHT finish is cured. You can fill that day, the next day or the following week; thus eliminating the need to pay for water.
Looking for a colored aquatic finish? Colored masonry coatings typically require a two week start up process called a "Low alkalinity burn" or a "Hot Start." The process normally involves your pool company pouring muriatic acid into your pool to burn the leaching calcium off the curing masonry. Since aquaBRIGHT is a durable, plastic finish, it does not require any caustic or complicated start up process after installation. We call our start up process "Balance and Swim".
Pick A Color, Any Color.
Pigments are like commodities, there can be great variations in cost, depending on the color you choose. Sometimes the difference can be so great it becomes the sole determining factor in choosing the color scheme for your pool. Every standard installation of residential and commercial aquaBRIGHT finishes are one awesome low price, so choose away and pick what you like and not what you can afford.
Chemical Resistant, pH Neutral
When did owning a pool mean that you need a degree in chemistry? Old timers used to treat their pools with two things chlorine and muriatic acid. Unlike masonry finishes, the non-porous, smooth and pH neutral aquaBRIGHT finish won't counter balance with your swimming pool's water chemistry. We're not saying with the installation of aquaBRIGHT that you'll only need chlorine and acid, but due to the nature of plastic, you'll spend much less time balancing your water chemistry and more time enjoying your pool with your family.
Pre-mix To Protect
Many chemicals need to be pre-mixed with water before adding the product to the pool. Usually this is to protect the finish of the pool to prevent problems like bleaching and etching. Our plastics are chemical resistant and unlike masonry finishes, aquaBRIGHT can be acid washed with very little impact to the surface and the color.
polyFIBRO is a scientifically formulated aquatic coating devised to tackle the issues of traditional gel-coat finishes. The thermo-polymer coating is long lasting and does not chip, peel or crack like traditional gel-coat and paint finishes. Also the variety of colors and custom colors is more high-end in appearance and easier to apply than gel-coating. polyFIBRO is the line of aquatic fiberglass coating swimming pools that will transform your pool or spa into a high end super low maintenance focal point.
polyFIBRO is the ideal product for refinishing fiberglass steps. You are now able to breathe new life in to your tired and worn insert steps, and match or accent your liner pools color.
Waterslide surfaces can get easily worn and become dulled overtime. Coating the surface with polyFIBRO is an easy solution to rejuvenate your slide leaving a smooth and beautiful looking coating.
The benefits of polyFIBRO®:
Will Not Blister
polyFIBRO thermo-polymer coating will not blister like traditional gel coatings and paints.
Why wait over a week to fill your pool? Fill immediately and enjoy your fiberglass swimming pool. No more worrying about your pool floating, lifting, or popping out of the ground while empty during the gel-coat curing process.
A Truly Flexible Coating
Gel-coats and paints are very brittle when cured, movement in the pool shell can result in the coating cracking. polyFIBRO is a high flexible coating that can withstand the movement of the fiberglass pool shell, making it an ideal option for your residential or commercial pool resurfacing.
Pick A Color, Any Color
Re-Gel coating a pool limits you to light colors: white, baby-blue, tan, light grey etc...polyFIBRO can be applied in any color you choose from our standard to custom colored coatings for both polyFIBRO and aquaBRIGHT installation.
All standard polyFIBRO coatings are one amazing low price, so choose away and pick what you like and not what you can afford.
New high gloss and multi-dimensional gel-coats are only able to be installed in new factory fiberglass pools. There is no ability to repair a pool damaged during installation, transport, or every day usage. polyFIBRO swimming pools and finishes are easily repairable unlike existing coatings.
