I called in Peninsula Pool Renovations to help me redesign a very outdated and tired pool. My pool was over 20 years old, the design was outdated and the Marbelite coating had become rough and attracted algae growth which I was unable to correct chemically. With the help of Tom Botha we changed the shape and gave the pool a new fibreglass coating as well as renewing the very tired brick surround with new pavers. The result has transformed the whole living area and we are very happy with the result.
The whole process was stress-free and very professionally handled. I can highly recommend Tom and his crew.
This is a large pool situated in Milnerton. As can be seen, the pool has been around for many years and was really becoming dated, with its old-fashioned electrical box, copings and slasto (crazy paving).
There were numerous structural cracks which we repaired by using steel reinforcing(epoxy-bonded into the shell), over which we applied a concrete mix.
The paving and copings were lifted and disposed of, as were the old skimmer box and aimflow. The original skimmer box was converted to a return and the original return was moved to enable a circular movement of water. A new skimmer box was installed and all new piping was laid to and from the filtration.
Columba DBL copings, paving and cladding were used for the new surround. This was laid on a sand/cement base and grouted with a sand/cement grout. A polysulphide expansion joint was installed between the coping and paving. The filtration was re-positioned and a new Weather Proof distribution was installed. For chlorination purposes, a Zodiac Tri Maxi salt chlorinator with a built in pH controller was installed.
The pool was plastered with Cemcrete White Pool Crete pool plaster and blue ceramic mosaic was applied to the perimeter and steps.
