Every installer who works on pools understands how crucial it is to have the right pool finishes for their customers. Using the right one can make the difference between a pool that’s an asset and one that’s more of a liability.

ecoFINISH understands the vital role that pool finishes play, and that’s why we have created aquaBRIGHT™ pool finish to meet the needs of your customers. One of the most useful ecoFINISH solutions, this finish offers a plethora of benefits to commercial pool owners thanks to its material composition.

For further information, here are three major reasons why aquaBRIGHT™ is designed to match the needs of your customer’s pool:

The Finish Won’t Impact Balancing

It is essential to maintain chemical balancing through the use of various compounds to ensure that your customers are safe when swimming. However, keeping a swimming pool chemically balanced is a chore that can take up a lot of time and effort. One way to do this is to minimize the number of things that need to be accounted for while balancing, and a pool’s finish is one of them. Using a pool surface that’s pH neutral means that you won’t have to deal with anything leaching into the water that would disrupt the balance.

As the aquaBRIGHT™ pool finish doesn’t incur any chemical reactions with the water, the pH won’t fluctuate constantly. Because you won’t need to adjust the pH levels for the safety of your swimmers as often as you would with other surfaces, you can save a lot of money on pool chemicals. Some commercial pool owners have found that using aquaBRIGHT™ has helped them save around 40% in annual chemical costs, making this finish an excellent option for those looking to save money for other purchases.

It’s Chemically Neutral

Many pool finishes require a lot of prep work before installing. Usually, this involves a process commonly referred to as “hot start” and consists of pre-treating the pool area with an acid to eliminate the calcium that would cause the pool finish to wear faster. However, the aquaBRIGHT™ finish is chemically neutral and consequently doesn’t need to be treated this way before applying the finish.

An additional benefit to the finish being chemically neutral is that it doesn’t need to have water trucked in to ensure that it sets up correctly; you can apply it and then have clients use the pool once the installation is complete. This benefit saves your business the time and money of having to truck in water to prevent the cured masonry from drying up and cracking.

It Can Better Match Your Aesthetic

Anyone who works on pools also knows that the pool needs to match the surrounding area’s aesthetic if it’s going to be an asset. However, getting the right finish to match the aesthetic can be more challenging than it looks. Adding color to a pool finish often requires additional processes that raise the overall cost of the project. In addition to that problem, any aesthetic considerations can’t compromise the safety and functionality of the pool itself by introducing chemicals that could harm the swimmers or degrade the pool’s quality.

Luckily, with aquaBRIGHT™, you can choose from a selection of colors that can match your vision for how the pool should look without adding anything that’s chemically harmful. However, the aesthetics of your pool will benefit from more than just a wide array of color options to choose from. Unlike other colored masonry finishes, the aquaBRIGHT™ finish will remain consistent with your entire pool’s hue even after it’s aged. Furthermore, you won’t have to worry about the aquaBRIGHT™ pool finish fading in large blotchy clouds during installation.

Another way that the aquaBRIGHT™ will benefit the appearance of your commercial pool is through its ability to maintain coloration. During the thermal process, when the aquaBRIGHT™ is applied, the powder is heated and softened by the flame so that it is far more adhesive. This allows the melted particles to form together into a layer that’s free from pores. Thanks to these pores, there are fewer opportunities for rust and algae to grab onto. As a result, the aquaBRIGHT™ pool finish is highly resistant to stains and discoloration, permitting it to appear clean and colorful for many years to come.

A wide variety of everlasting pigments is far from the only advantage aquaBRIGHT™ offers commercial pool owners. In addition to adding color to your pool without breaking the bank, the aquaBRIGHT™ finish has the added benefit of being slip-resistant. That way, you can get the look you want without compromising the safety of the pool and reducing the potential risk of injury for your customers.
