I find the surface of our concrete pool has over the years become rough and seems to encourage green algae which is difficult to remove. Does anyone know the cost of the resin coat which I understand can be used as a new surface. The pool is 12x7 by average 1.5 m. Deep. Also suitable reliable firms who can do the work.We are near Beziers.

Thomas, you are correct the rough surface gives algae many places to hide compared to smooth.

However, if the water is nutrient poor and chlorine level is maintained correctly in lieu of the stabiliser level you shouldn't have too many issues.

It will cost you quite a bit for a tradesman to do depending on finish. Aquabrite is about €100 per sqm.
Painting with coloured epoxy pool paint about €2000+.
Painting with acrylic pool paint (I would never use this) €1500+
Glass fibre re covering €2500-4000 and upwards.

All finishes will still fail if the water chemistry isn't good so you'll could pay a lot and still have the problem. Painting in the case of chlorinated rubber paint or acrylic will need re doing every 3-5 years, glass fibre can fade looking patchy.

Getting the chemistry correct costs very little by comparison.

My pool is about ready for a refurb. The Aquabrite finish has been recommended. After talking to my pool/builder guy he says they also put a waterproofing on before applying the finish. Is that the case, in your experience, and would it be included in the €100 m2 cost?

Hi Dave, I wouldn't like to comment too much on local costs as I could be a bit out of date and it may have become a bit cheaper now or the other way.

When it was new, they said it would waterproof a concrete shell but obviously any surface defects, cracks etc would be repaired. Maybe they have found it better to apply a waterproofer prior to application.

Certainly happy to be put right cost and process wise.
