Scottsdale Pool Resurfacing: Answers to Common Questions

Scottsdale, Arizona is filled with many houses that have pools. You purchase a house and there is a good chance it already has a pool, or a pool is installed by you. Most likely the concrete for the pool will be taken for granted. The concrete is simply something that the pool is made of and makes little difference or requires little thought, right? Sure, sure, until you start getting a blister from enjoying your pool every single time you take a dip! In such an event you’ll likely need to have some resurfacing work done. Here, you’ll find all of the solutions to the Scottsdale pool resurfacing questions you did not even think that you needed to look into.

If I want a salt water pool will that have an affect on my Scottsdale pool resurfacing?

The simple answer here is…yes! The majority of folks do not understand that this popular style for pools has a major effect on the care for their pool. When you desire a salt water pool you should be aware that you are likely going to have to get pool resurfaced earlier than if you were using simple old chlorine. Concrete is etched by salt, you see. Understand that if you’re going to set up a salt chlorine generator, you’ll need to resurface more frequently.

My pool has a lifetime warranty, so do I even need to worry about all of this?

I’d highly suggest reading the fine print that is in your warranty. Probably, you received a lifetime structural guarantee. Swimming pools typically will need to be resurfaced every three to seven years. Most people aren’t even aware of the the fact that they have to resurface their pool at all. How frequently you need to do this depends on a slew of variables, including whether you own a salt chlorine generator. (see above)

What type of care does my concrete pool need if my warranty does not cover my pool’s resurfacing?

This really is where a great pool cleaning professional is useful. Each and every single little chemical level he checks on (and then rechecks) can actually cause a lot of damage on the concrete if they aren’t being properly maintained. Here’s a brief overview:

Calcium: These are checked by your pool guy because if they’re not high enough the calcium will be grabbed by the water from the concrete, which will end up leaving pitting in the pool that needs resurfacing.
Cleaning: your concrete pool ought to be brushed frequently to prevent erosion.
pH: These should be assessed frequently to ensure they’re all at the right levels.
Acid washing: In the off season an excellent acid washing will help to prolong the life span of your pool’s surface.

What does it mean when we get out of the pool and our feet are all cut up? Do we need to have our pool resurfaced?
