Step 1 Pool Preparation
We prepare the pool by acid and power washing the surface to remove contaminants. We then fill in all cracks and voids and cut seal lines around all fittings and accessories with AquaGuard 400 ml Super Epoxy Injector system.
Step 2: AquaGuard Plus 5001 Primer
After preparing the surface, the AquaGuard 5001 is applied. AquaGuard 5001 is a unique product developed by Aquatic Technologies Group, LLC to create the strongest cohesive bond possible. AquaGuard 5001 is specifically designed to penetrate the tiny pores in the surface that is being treated. This enhances cohesion of the AquaGuard 5001 coating to the pool, providing an ultra tight barrier to any aquatic surface.
Step 3: Application of AquaGuard Plus
Cut 1/4″ beveled edge under waterline tile for fiberglass matting insert. Next, We now carefully apply 2 layers of 1.5 oz. reinforced fiberglass mat hand applied with AquaGuard 5001 moisture tolerant epoxy resin. This will give AquaGuard 5000 added strength to the surface.
Step 4: Surface Prep
Check the surface for uniformity and no defects. Re-sand entire surface with a 60 grit orbital sander to dull the surface for proper adhesion of the AquaGuard 5000 System.
Step 5: Smoothing the Surface
During this step we will check over our work to address any imperfections. Apply AquaGuard 5000 Trowel mix to all edges and seams for a perfect consistent surface. One quart container will fill approximately 50-75 ft. of beveled edge lines. Re-Sand if needed.
Step 6: Finishing Coat
Now we wipe down the entire surface with MEK Solvent to cleanse the surface to insure a good adhesion. We will spray apply AquaGuard 5000 40-60 ml (DFT). Note: Some contractors will roll apply 3 coats to achieve an application of 25-30 ml (DFT)
Step 7: Fill Pool
Fill and balance pool 24 hours after applying the last coat of AquaGuard 5000. Happy Swimming!
