Remodeling swimming pool- advice on what finish to use

Postby happygrove2017 » Thu 07 Dec, 2017 17:19

Hello
I am remodeling my swimming pool soon. I currently have plain white plaster and I am looking to have it replaced with a finish more long lasting. I also plan on installing a pool heater, so I would like something that is resistant to the water temperature changes.
What is the best option for me?
1. Traditional white plaster with marble
2. Quartz
3. Pebble
4. Other
Any input is appreciated. Thank you in advance

My thoughts are insulation of the walls and floor (as it's to be heated) and a commercial on site welded liner.

I am thinking about considering insulating the floor and walls of the pool with fiberglass door cut out panels, These will be cut out for windows, It will be I guess less than 2" thick, With a TigerFoam to fill the gaps. Approx 50 deg is the ground temperature here.

It may help the swimming season last longer and start earlier. And It is necessary to keep the pool covered when out of use. as evaporation will be the largest heat loss.

Pedro12, any insulation is better than none! The first pool I built (mine) I used 30mm polystyrene and that helps. I seem to remember 60mm as about ideal.
