Exposed Aggregate Pool finish
Diamond Brite is an exposed aggregate finish that is used in the interior of swimming pools and spas. It is a mixture of quartz aggregates and fortified white portland cement. Diamond Brite is available in a variety of colors and textures. Diamond Brite finishes offer pool owners an extremely durable and attractive alternative to the more traditional white pool coatings.
Diamond Brite offers many advantages:
Fill and Balancing
Proper start up and pool balancing must be used to insure the integrity of your newly re-finished pool. Fill pool without interruption with clean, potable water. We recommend using a filter during the filling of the pool.
First Day: After the pool is full, start the pump and set the timer to let the pool circulate continuously for three (3) full days. Adjust the pH level in the pool to 7.2 - 7.4 and the total alkalinity to 100 PPM. DO NOT add chlorine or calcium chloride for three (3) days. Clean the filter as needed. Brush the entire surface twice(2) a day for the first three days.
Second Day: Repeat steps as day one.
Third Day: Adjust chemistry to the following levels:
Free Chlorine: 1.0 - 3.0 PPM
pH: 7.4 - 7.6
Total alkalinity: 80 - 120 PPM
Calcium Hardness: 200 - 400 PPM
Stabilizer: 30 - 100 PPM
Adjust pump timer to normal operating hours. Do not install automatic pool cleaners for 28 days. Do not vacuum the pool with a wheeled vacuum for 14 days. Brush the pool walls and floor daily for the first two (2) weeks.
