What is the Process to convert my Vinyl-Lined Pool to a Fibreline Pool?
Basic Process of Vinyl Conversion to fibreglass:
Generally, vinyl lined pools are of brick and buttress construction with either a concrete or sand floor (if sand floor, concrete needs to be poured and shaped over the sand before the fibre-lining can be applied). A vinyl liner converted to fibreglass will last longer and look great. The process is then to:
- Surface preparation, abrasive sanding of the existing surface, high pressure cleaning and chemical etching.
- Installation of attachment points.
- Application of the primer coat. VE resin.
- Application of the reinforcement material 300g CSM.
- Application of the bulk resin coat. VE resin Application of the under coat.
- Application of the final coat.
Advantages of fibreglass:
- Similar pool water chemistry qualities but much harder finish than that of a vinyl liner.
- Therefore, no cuts or tears. A vinyl liner converted to fibreglass can’t tear like vinyl liner does.
- Fibreglass is tough and would require a hammer and chisel to create holes in the surface of the swimming pool.
