Benson Pools. Your dream backyard – now an ecoFinish possibility!

After 62 plus years in the pool industry, you can understand why Benson Pools has a solid reputation for hard work and good business ethics and why they have long-lasting relationships with many clients in the Greater Ottawa Region.                                           Benson’s clients include the Prime Minister’s residence at 24 Sussex, numerous NHL players and many of the City of Ottawa structures.

Benson Pools build pools from concept and design to complete construction. Benson’s also specializes in refurbishing previously built pools and renovating existing pool structures that will bring your backyard back to life!

Benson’s now offers their clients ecoFinish thermoplastic spray finishes

Pool coping, ceramic tile and plaster work are old-world skills - Benson’s specialty.  If your pool is crying out for a touch-up or a complete restoration, the pool repair specialists at Benson’s make your pool transform from ugly to beautiful.

Jeff Benson, Owner and President of Benson Pools, watched the revolutionary process of ecoFinish’s thermoplastic spray finishes grow into a recognized brand in the pool industry; he followed the growth of ecoFinish, recognizing its potential as a lower carbon footprint alternative to pool plaster and paint.

Benson Pools history centers on offering excellent customer service, exceptional designs and quality work for both residential and commercial pool projects. ecoFinish is a natural progression for Benson’s and Jeff is excited to expand his service offerings to help clients with a choice of finishes other than plaster for new build projects. In addition, this a finish that will transform worn plaster and older concrete pools into something to be proud of once again.

ecoFinish has zero VOC’s and is an ecofriendly option in that the installation process requires only a two person crew to install ecoFinish. Best of all, ecoFinish cures instantly so your pool can be filled immediately or left to fill gradually with a garden hose.

                   ecoFinish transforms fiberglass pools, spas and steps.      

If your fiberglass pool, spa or stairs experiences a gel-coat failure or is looking pretty tired, ecoFinish is designed to restore these to like-new condition. Best of all, the renovation process is done in place - with ecoFinish there is no need for costly replacements.

Love/Hate Relationship with Vinyl Liners?

If your love for your vinyl liner has faded, ecoFinish can be installed to inground steel panel walls and concrete bottom instead of a liner. Soft to the touch and hard wearing ecoFinish gives your pool a designer look and feel with 21 different colours to choose from!

The fact that Benson’s can offer a high performance worry free finish for new build pools or help transform an older pool made sense to Jeff. ecoFinish is a great fit and Benson’s is proud to be the newest Certified ecoFinish installer in the Greater Ottawa Region.

These eight steel panels are wearing ecoFinish's aquaBright pool finish that was applied in the fall of 2013. These panels were left outside to endure the extreme elements of one of the worst winters on record here in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. The panels experienced a low of - 36 C with a wind chill of - 42 and, were subject to rain, freezing rain, ice pellets, sleet and four feet of snow at any given time since November 2013.

These fiberglass steps were finished to show the 'before and after' aquaBright effect; the steps experienced the same harsh treatment and were left out in the cold this winter. Both the steel panels and the fiberglass steps sprayed with aquaBright survived the extreme conditions without a blemish.

No other pool finish can flex like aquaBright in sub-zero temperatures. Click on the photo to see more colours.

Testimonial from a Certified ecoFinish Installer

Jan 2014

Roger Willis Contracting is an award winning second generation swimming pool business with 30+ yrs experience in Custom Commercial and Residential pool design, service and installation.

"All professionals in this industry are well aware of the problems with cementitious finishes and the tendencies to craze, crack, spall and discolour. We are also aware that despite the warnings and training of our clients, the importance of long term water balance and proper chemistry is often be overlooked".
"Over the years we have been searching for a replacement to trowel on cementitious coatings pool interiors and now offer aquaBright as our preferred pool finish. We still offer trowel on, but so far it has been an easy sale to convert pools to aquaBright at a similar price point".

Their experience with aquaBright:

  • Clean- no mess, no mixing
  • smooth continuous flow of application no wait time, no curing time
  • easily manipulated
  • hands on training
  • strong after sales support
  • faster than traditional cementitious finish applications
  • two person crew to install with no heavy trucking, no bags of concrete, no pump or mixer
  • no acid etching or burn in
  • coating can be stopped then started again with no visible cold joint
  • less weather dependency
  • no misting or sun barrier in summer
  • coating can be repaired without visible seams or joints
  • Does not require feathering
  • no special treatments of fill water
  • does not stain from fallen organics
  • no downtime for clients to wait
  • average pools...24 man hours to install aquaBright after prep which is same as trowel on finish
  • works on concrete, steel, fiberglass and aluminum
  • this product allows colour continuity between different substrates with no mottling
