Keeping your pool clean and functional is just one of the many responsibilities of pool ownership. One aspect of this is pool plaster, specifically what kind you should be using. If you weren’t even aware there were different kinds of plaster you could be using, that’s probably something you need to address. What better way to do that than learn about these three types of pool plaster to consider for a pool?
1. White Marble
White marble plaster is the standard for pool plasters. As the oldest and most common type of plaster, it’s probably the one you’re most familiar with. Made from cement, white marble aggregate, and water, it’s decently sturdy while remaining flexible and lasts between 9 and 12 years on average.
Like the name suggests, QuartzScapes is a type of plaster made from crushed quartz in place of white marble. Often having a slightly shinier appearance than white marble plaster, the presence of quartz gives the plaster a greater endurance compared to its predecessor. QuartzScapes tend to last between 9 and 15 years after applies with good maintenance and cleaning.
3. Diamond Brite
Diamond Brite is like a combination of the traditional white marble and QuartzScapes plasters, bringing together some of the best elements of both. Diamond Brite is long lasting and resistant to everything from physical scratches to chemical damage. As a bonus, you can also get it done in several color options most of the time, giving you some variety that generally isn’t present in pool plaster. It lasts between 9 and 12 years on average when well-maintained.
Caring for a pool is important, especially when it comes to plaster. To adequately keep your pool in working order, consider these three types of pool plaster that you can use when it’s time to replaster.
