Mixing the batch formula – Our unique Aquos stone+ blend is mixed with cement, water, pigment and proprietary additives to create the material that will be applied as your interior pool finish.
Pneumatic spray application – The Aquos stone+ mixed formula is then pumped through a hose and the material is pneumatically applied with a sprayer specifically designed to provide even coverage of the finish material.
Hand troweling – Immediately following the spray application of the Aquos stone+ , the installer hand-trowels the material to create a more compacted surface in preparation for exposure. Often times, the applicators wear special shoes with spikes to protect the finish.
Exposing the finish – After the Aquos stone+ has been troweled, the pool is sprayed or wiped with water to expose the pebbles w/glass beads and remove excess cement.
Detail of the finish – After a hardening period, the pebble pool finish will be acid washed and detailed using a special solution to remove any excess residue or film. For the Aquos stone+ finish, the surface is lightly buffed during the cleansing treatment to polish the stones. These treatments enhance the natural beauty of the finish.
Completion – Once your Aquos stone+ pebble pool finish installation process is complete, fill the pool with water, reference your pool care instructions, balance the chemicals and begin swimming!
After the first 28 days, Aquos pools strongly suggests that your pool be maintained per the National Plasterers Council Standards for pH, carbonate alkalinity, hardness, cyanuric acid/stabilizer and total dissolved solids. Visit NPC online at www.npconline.org.
The finish consists of pebbles and cement and will vary in color, shade, consistency and exposure. The color and shade will change throughout the day as the sunlight reflects from different angles.
