- Unlike plaster or other cementitious (porous) surfaces, aquaBRIGHT™ is inert; it does not react with the water chemistry.
- Any chemicals added to the water in an aquaBRIGHT™ pool adjust the chemistry of the water and only the water. Cementitious surfaces below the aquaBRIGHT™ finish are safely sealed from water (chemical) contact.
- No calcium leaching can occur and the pH is easier to balance. Simple.
ecoFinish Requires Less Chemicals
A 1991 scientific research report published by the School of Building Construction at the University of Florida stated “The deterioration of marcite (plaster) has been found to be chemically related and due primarily to leaching of Calcium hydroxide (portlandite) from localized areas of pool plaster. Acidic pool water (pH less than 7.0) can wreak havoc on marcite and pool plumbing resulting in etching and staining. Proposed solutions to control the damage aggressive water can produce include (1) paying careful attention to water chemistry to avoid unbalanced water conditions and (2) providing a chemically inert barrier between the pool water and the marcite surface.” Until recently, there was no such thing as a 'barrier solution'.
Chemical reactions between the water and the cementitious surfaces cause a constant shift in pH levels. Pools and spas finished with aquaBRIGHT™ and polyFibro™ have no chemical reactions.
No Need For A Pool Water Chemistry Degree.
ecofinish offers non-porous barrier solution
Commercial pool owners report they experience approximately 40% savings in annual chemical consumption for the same pools now finished with aquaBRIGHT™. The target chemical balance for a pool finished in aquaBRIGHT™ is simplified. Pool owners will find it very easy to maintain the proper pH and chlorine levels as the major cause of pH drift is now eliminated. Adding chemicals is safer and easier now that there is no reason to pre-dilute acid by mixing it with water prior to pouring into the pool.
aquaBright & polyFibro are Chemical Resistant
aquaBRIGHT™ and polyFibro™ are manufactured from the same polymer resin as the jugs that store pool chemicals. In fact, they are so impervious to chemical attack that even pouring straight Muriatic pool acid directly onto the finish, allowing it to remain for 10 minutes and after washing it off, there is no visible evidence of the acid having any effect on the surface.
