Pebble Pool Plaster

Swimming pool technology has improved exponentially in the last two decades. While most of these changes make your pool cleaner, safer, and easier to maintain, advancements in pool plaster have made a more noticeable effect because they change the look and feel of your swimming pool. To understand the new generation of pool finishes, we first need to understand how they came about.

Pool Finishes Through the Years

Aliquam vestibulum felis vel neque vestibulum lobortis. Aenean et justo ullamcorper, dictum odio ac, lacinia mi. Duis id quam fermentum, sagittis justo eu, gravida augue. Proin luctus elementum finibus. Etiam vestibulum accumsan dui. Mauris eget pharetra risus.

The swimming pool boom began during the economic shift following World War II. Glamorized by Hollywood, swimming pools were becoming affordable thanks to the growing middle class and a new application technique, pneumatically applied concrete, or gunite. Back then, pools were typically painted white, which was pleasing to the eye, but required reapplication every few years and contained lead and copper. Also around this time, cheaper alternatives to concrete pools came about that didn’t require finishing, such  as above ground and fiberglass shell pools, but concrete pools were still the most common. The industry moved to plaster, which offered extra durability, but was still prone to damage and discoloration from poorly balanced water. Chemical enhancements make today’s plaster finishes hardier than previous versions, but the biggest innovation in finish tech came in the late 1980’s with the advent of aggregate finishes, which we discuss in detail in the next section

Modern Pool Finishes

 A pool plaster finish typically lasts between 5 and 10 years. This figure is all based on proper water chemistry and maintenance. For pool owners that want or need to remodel their plaster, there are new types of pool finishes that offer new looks and extended life.

Aggregate swimming pool finishes have been growing in popularity over the last few decades.  Today, they have taken the top spot from pool plaster as the most desirable pool finish option. Aggregate pool finishes contain river pebbles, stones, ceramic-coated crystals, or glass, which are combined with portland cement-based pigmented plaster and applied pneumatically. Most pool owners have chosen to go with an aggregate pool finish because of its durability and visual appeal. 

Customers are trying to get the most bang for their buck while staying trendy when planning a pool remodel. They typically have a watercolor in mind, but may not be aware of California Pebble finish options. California Pebble plaster isn’t just newest option in plaster, it will last generations.
