Standard pool plaster is made from a marble-based mix and can be found in many older pools. Plaster is less chemically resistant than an aggregate finish, and is highly susceptible to discoloration, staining and deterioration. As a result, more chemicals may be required to maintain the aesthetic beauty of the finish. A plaster pool usually needs to be replastered approximately every 5 – 7 years and can only be acid washed once or twice before the finish needs to be replaced.
PTI finishes consist of high-performance materials and offer a more durable finish with exceptional stain resistance. Therefore, our finishes are more forgiving than a traditional plaster pool finish. Read more about our finishes by visiting our products page.
