How long does a pool finish last?
Monday, May 6, 2019
Pool chemistry and maintenance has a big effect on the life of the interior surface finish of a pool, so the average lifespans shown below are stated as a range instead of a single number. And, or course, there will always be a few outliers that fail sooner or last longer than expected.
• Plaster (Marcite) - 9 to 12 years
• Aggregate/Pebble Finish - 12 to 16 years
• Liner - 8 to 10 years
• Fiberglas Gel Finish - 15 to 18 years
