Protecting Your New Concrete Swimming Pool


A concrete swimming pool is exceptionally durable. The concrete in your swimming pool is treated to prevent leaks and water damage. However, sooner or later, you will probably need to have your concrete pool resurfaced. During the resurfacing work, a contractor will repair any cracks which have appeared on the surface of the concrete. Below is a guide to some of the signs that it is time to think about resurfacing your concrete pool. 

Uneven surface

When you get into your pool, the concrete surface should feel smooth to the touch. If you get into your pool and find that the walls or floor area feel uneven or rough, this could be a sign that the water has damaged the concrete. The rough sensation on your skin is caused by the surface of the concrete becoming uneven due to corrosion. This can eventually lead to serious problems if the problem is left untreated. Therefore, if you notice a change in the texture and feel of the concrete in your pool, you should immediately call in a pool contractor.


If you notice that stains are beginning to form on the concrete which lines the pool, this could a sign that the surface is at risk of damage. Staining typically occurs when algae or debris collect in your pool. The debris and algae allow bacteria to thrive, which stain the side of the pool and present a hazard to anyone who uses the water. The best way to deal with this is to have the pool water cleaned and the concrete surface of the pool resurfaced.

Low water levels

If you notice that the water level in your pool is low, even during the colder months when evaporation is not a factor, this suggests that water may be leaking out of you swimming pool via cracks in the surface of the concrete. If you notice that the water level in your pool is low, you should contact a pool specialist who will be able to assess the condition of your pool before carrying out any necessary repairs. Once the repairs have been carried out, the contractor will reseal the surface of the concrete to protect it from further damage and decay.
