aquaBRIGHT™ is a scientifically engineered aquatic coating that tackles common issues associated with plaster pools and traditional coatings. Plaster pools require a long and complicated startup process (Hot-Start), and often have issues with staining, shrinking, and cracking. In this article, we will discuss three major reasons why coating your plaster pool surface with aquaBRIGHT™ is essential.

aquaBRIGHT™ Won’t Impact Your Pool Chemistry

Maintaining a healthy chemical balance in your swimming pool is essential for safety, enjoyment, and the longevity of your pool. However, it can be a time-consuming and laborious process. AquaBRIGHT™ can help you save time and effort on pool maintenance by creating a pH-neutral finish that acts as a barrier between the pool’s substrate and the water. This prevents contaminants from leaching into the water and disrupting the chemical balance. As a result, you will spend less time testing and adjusting the water’s chemistry, and more time enjoying your pool.

Since aquaBRIGHT™ creates a pH neutral barrier, the balance of your pool won’t fluctuate constantly due to the interference of the plaster surface fighting for calcium. This means you won’t need to adjust the pH levels as often, saving you money on pool chemicals.

No Special Start-up Process Required

Most pool finishes require preparation before installation. This typically involves a process called “hot start,” which consists of pre-treating the pool with acid to remove calcium that would cause the finish to degrade faster. However, aquaBRIGHT™ is a durable, polymer finish that does not require any caustic or complicated startup after installation.

Masonry finishes need water to cure, or they will dry out and crack. This is why it is common to truck in water to protect new masonry finishes. However, aquaBRIGHT™ is different. It is cured immediately after installation, so you can fill your pool immediately or the next day. aquaBRIGHT™ does not require any special startup processes. Simply add a sequestering agent to your water and enjoy your pool!

Match any aesthetic

When building or renovating a pool, you want it to match the aesthetic of your home. But choosing the right pool finish can be tricky. Traditional masonry finishes, like plaster, are beautiful but can fade and stain. And if you want a specific color, you’re often limited in options. That’s where aquaBRIGHT™ comes in.
