Keep Your Swimming Pool Tiling and Coping in Tip-Top Shape – Advice from Your Houston Area Pool Contractor

A backyard pool is a fabulous place to unwind after a hard day, enjoy the family on weekends, or host a neighborhood party. If you enjoy your watery oasis to its fullest extent, you have probably had more than one get together on your decking. Those burgers and hot dogs always taste better when family and friends are around. A little splash of fresh water from a friendly game of Marco Polo is just one more reminder that summer is a time for relaxing and making new memories.

With all of the fun, it is easy to overlook some of the wear and tear your swimming pool shows. From chipped or damaged pavers to stain on the tiling and coping, you do not want to let things get too far out of hand. At JR Pool Plastering & Texas Gunite, Ltd, we understand the importance of protecting your investment. We help homeowners and apartment complexes keep their pools in the best shape with timely repairs.

Know What Your Pool Structure Needs

Regular maintenance helps you keep your aquatic sanctuary functioning at its best. Sometimes a little elbow grease will help. Other times, you will benefit from the assistance of a professional maintenance team. Here are some problems you may be facing:

  • White Deposits: If you have noticed what looks like a bathtub ring around the top of your water line, you probably see mineral deposits like calcium and magnesium called efflorescence. There are different ways to remove the unwanted crust, including using a pumice stone, scraping off with a putty knife, or using an acid wash.
  • Tiles Falling Off: It is possible that the “mud” used to set the tile is no longer binding. Another reason may be a cracked beam running along the top of your pool. A trusted contractor can easily repair any missing tiles.
  • Discolored Coping: Failing to keep leaves and dirt off your deck and coping results in staining. Pressure washing can remove the stains and bring back the beauty you remember. It is possible for algae or mildew to grow. You can combat this growth by scrubbing with a paste of a bleaching agent.
  • Several Chipped or Aging Areas: You want your investments to last a lifetime, and they can when you stay ahead of the curve with maintenance. Time does continue to move along, though, and there may come the season when you spend more time fixing coping than sitting at its edge. That is when a hiring a professional to rejuvenate your pool and get you back to summertime fun makes sense.
