Rough Plaster Pool Finish Smooth Again

Our Pool Abrasive Pad was designed in 1980s. Over the years we have made updates with the help from the manufactures and end users that work with pool plaster daily to meet any nesscasary changes. Pads can be used wet or dry with a maxium of 3000 RPMs. Pool Abrasive Pads come with hook and loop backing material on one side and diamond abrasives bonded with a non-corresive material that will not stain pool plaster fininhes.

What you need

Step 1 Drain the pool. The pool should be completely empty of water before you begin this process. Make any repairs or replacements below pool coping now while your pool is empty.

Step 2 Start with WD7050 Pool Plaster Abrasive Pad attached to AG7519 5/8-11 threaded hook and loop backer pad screwed on to a Sander / Polisher / Buffer not exceeding 2800 RPMs with a GFI attached. Wet the area to be process. Pass your hand over area before using pad to get a informed touch to feel the roughness. Rinse with water. If after you process an area some areas are smoother than others, continue til pool plaster surface is consistent. Now is the time to consintrete on stains and really rough areas.

Step 3 Use WD7070 Pool Plaster Abrasive Pad attached to AG7519 5/8-11 threaded hook and loop backer pad 5/8 -11 screwed on to a Sander / Polisher / Buffer not exceeding 2800 RPMs with a GFI attached. Wet the area to be process. Pass your hand over area before using pad to get a informed touch to feel the roughness. Rinse with water. If after you process an area some areas are smoother than others, continue til pool plaster surface is consistent. 

Step 4 Use WD7120 Pool Plaster Abrasive Pad attached to AG7519 5/8-11 threaded hook and loop backer pad 5/8 -11 screwed on to a Sander / Polisher / Buffer not exceeding 2800 RPMs with a GFI attached. Wet the area to be process. Pass your hand over area before using pad to get a informed touch to feel the roughness. Rinse with water. If after you process an area some areas are smoother than others, continue til pool plaster surface is consistent. Now you should have the pool completely smooth and topical stains and rough areas should be gone. If not, go back over the stained or area again.

Step 6 Rinse off the pool walls floor and steps with water and wet vacuum up the residuals from the process.

Tip 1 Remove drain cover and clog hole with large bath towel to allow water to drain and filtering out the pool plaster residual you are removing. The pool plaster residuals are harmful to your internal pump componets.

Tip 2 pool plaster abrasive pads are very aggressive a will harm your water line tile. Duck tape off small sections of the water line tile when processing next to the tile. This will not completely protect your tile. But will help. REMOVE DUCK TAPE WITHIN 30 MINUTES AFTER APPLYING
