Fiberglass Pools, Spas & Steps renewed with polyFibro by ecoFinish

Here's how Shawn and his Blue Horizon team did it:

  1.  Drain pool or spa
  2. Repair damaged areas; ensure the repair is dry, adhered to the substrate & free of cracks. 
  3. Remove all contaminants. Profile the surface by lightly blasting using a non-aggressive blast media or sand with 80 grit sand paper.
  4. Clean the surface using compressed air, blow or vacuum dust from the substrate.
  5. Power wash pool/spa with tri-sodium phosphate or an appropriate alternative to remove all contaminants. Follow this with a fresh water power wash rinse. & wipe the surface down using acetone solvents.
  6. Tape & mask all tile. Seal any open fittings. Remove all pool lights. Wrap the light cords; protect fittings and fixtures.   
  7.  Apply a 100% strength X40 ecoFinish epoxy coat. Make sure to coat the entire pool but not the PVC fittings.
  8. Apply polyFibro “Hot Flock” coat to surface into tacky epoxy. Move with a side to side motion with the gun tip about 3 feet from the substrate, starting from the cove and working up to the tile. 
  9. Apply the 2nd and 3rd coat of polyFibro ( see instruction manual) 
  10. Fill with water and enjoy!
