Services Suite at Precision Pool Renovations?

We are often asked what services we offer. At Precision Pool Renovations, we are not the often touted one-stop-shop. We are primarily a pool construction company that chooses to not build pools.

Precision’s approach to each pool remodeling project is the same: Provide clear communication with the homeowner about the construction timeline, install the finest quality materials by highly-skilled pool professionals, and maintain job safety and cleanliness. By its very nature pool renovation can be very messy, however our crews are trained to minimize any problems during the course of construction.

Most of our projects involve:

Pool Resurfacing

Pool plaster typically lasts 7 years and has a industry standard warranty of one year. The etching and chipping exhibited by plaster is a common occurrence, and resurfacing is the standard response to a pool over 7 years old.

The main differences between plaster and Precision’s preferred finish, Pebble Tec®, are the materials used, thickness of how it is applied, the color of water it creates, and the durability. Plaster can be colored in varying shades of black and gray, however colored plaster tends to mottle. On the other hand, Pebble Tec® has over 30 colors and styles to choose from.

To resurface a pool, the old plaster must be chipped away at least ½” deep and 2″ wide below the tile (for both new and old), and around all fittings. This gives enough room for the new finish to flush up to the tile and taper around the fittings without bulging. A bond coat is applied, which applies both a chemical and mechanical bond to the old plaster. This rough surface gives the new finish a strong grip to the shell and prevents the two finishes from separating.

Tile and Coping

There are hundreds of tile colors and sizes to choose from, from a large number of manufacturers. We recommend Classic Pool Tile because of its selection, quality and price, but you may choose your tile from any reputable pool tile distributor.

Coping can range from traditional brick to marble to rough hewn stone, and can be applied in a variety of fashions. When using natural stone, we recommend that you select the batch directly from the distributor, and be very clear about the size, color and thickness desired. When it is applied to the pool beam, the edge can be shaped to your preferred style.

Equipment

We often hear from homeowners that their 10+ year old pool equipment runs loud, inefficiently, or not at all. Salt chlorine generators are the newest and safest method of maintaining your water chemistry, and are an easy addition to your pool. Whether you need to replace/upgrade your pump, heater, filter, or overall plumbing, our staff can handle all levels of installation. Computer controls allow push button ease and built-in safety overrides to prevent damage to the equipment. Controls can be added to almost any pool.

Structural Modifications

Pools built 10 or more years ago often have depths, slopes or shapes that are not as preferable as those built today. For example, diving boards were once popular, but because of liability issues, families would rather have a pool that has a depth that everyone can enjoy. Our crew then “raises up” the floor by extending the plumbing, compacting structural fill, installing rebar, and installing a new concrete floor.

Another common modification is changing the main drain system in pools and spas from a single to a dual drain. The reason for this stems from drownings as a result of suction entrapment. By creating a dual main drain, the suction is divided and cannot be completely blocked.
