How long do concrete pools last?
Concrete pools are extremely durable. Typically, a concrete pool that has been built correctly should last around 50 – 70 years.
Is a concrete pool more expensive than a fibreglass pool?
Typically, the cost of a concrete pool compared to a fibreglass option is roughly the same. We are concreters and formworkers and aren’t in the business of supplying and installing fibreglass pools however our colleagues in the industry inform us that the costs are very similar.
As a fibreglass pool comes in its complete, moulded form, they often have to be craned up and over the property. This can add considerable expense to the pool cost.
Concrete pools do not have such limitations as they are built in-situ giving property owners a lot more choice in respect to the pool’s location and design.

Concrete pool resurfacing
Has your concrete pool lost its sparkle? Is it looking dated and old fashioned?
Concrete pool resurfacing, retiling and / or pool painting can breathe new life into your old pool, transforming it from eye-sore to a stylish feature of your home that adds value and becomes a show-piece you’re proud to show off.
Resurfacing your existing pool will also prolong it’s life, prevent future leaks and ensure its operating efficiently without wasting water and costing you more in pool chemicals.
Help, my pool is cracking!
Cracks in a concrete pool can be an indication of several issues. The most common causes is usually due to the land below and around the pool moving or “settling”. If movement is significant then the pool may move or drop, causing stress cracks in its structure.
Our highly skilled concreters can assess whether there may be problems with the land settlement and may be required to provide additional support or ‘underpinning’ to the pool to prevent movement now and in the future.
Once the pool has been supported, we can then repair the cracks and you should enjoy many years of trouble-free pool enjoyment.
Why does my pool have rust stains?
Rust stains in your pool appear when water enters cracks, even very small cracks, causing the pools steel reinforcement to corrode and rust.
The common name of this problem is concrete cancer or concrete spalling.
When steel reinforcement rusts, it expands and usually causes further cracking.
Rust stains are evidence this is happening and shouldn’t be ignored as the problems will only get worse if left unattended.
If you notice rust stains in your pool, contact our expert pool concreters for advice. The problem, if caught early, may be easily fixed at little expense. If left unfixed, the problem will only escalate and may require extensive concrete and remedial work.
