Like your home’s driveway, time can take its toll on your Gulf Coast gunite pool. Deterioration of a swimming pool over a long period is somewhat inevitable, particularly when it is subjected to disinfecting chemicals, every year. Swimming pool resurfacing can do amazing things for your aging gunite pool and breath a new life into it.

At Premier Pools & Spas of Gulf Coast, we get many questions from our clients about their gunite pool surface. Let’s get started.

Gunite Pool Surface Rough

Stains

These come in all colors, sizes, and shapes. Usually, a discoloration on the pool’s surface is on the surface level; often more irritating than serious. We know just how annoying a stain is when it gets to be visible even from a distance.

Most stains on pool surfaces are due to red or green algae, leaves or other natural debris, or mineral inputs and chemicals. If gunite pool surface rough stain grows in quantity and size, or if continued efforts to clean and remove the stains are ineffective, you should resurface your gunite pool.

Texture

How does the surface of your gunite pool feel? If the gunite is starting to show through or if it feels rougher than normal, that’s a bad sign. The surface of your pool is deteriorating.

Apart from discoloration, unbalanced levels of pH in your pool water can pit and wear out the surface of your pool. If you have to clean the pool a lot more than usual, there’s a possibility the pool chemicals are increasingly imbalanced or your pool surface is pitting, or both.

Leaks

How well is your swimming pool holding water? The possibility of a damaged or worn out pool surface leaking water is quite high. You’ll find yourself asking “Didn’t I just add water the other day?” That may mean your pool has a leak.

And similar to a deteriorating surface, swimming pool leaks will only worsen if not addressed. This also means your water bill will keep increasing until a complete resurfacing is done.
