Cooldeck Paint

Cooldeck is a texture paint that is applied onto your broom-finished concrete pool deck. It is a decorative application that offers many advantages like reducing concrete temperature up to 50% but it does so much more than that.

The Classic Texture coating provides a slip-resistant texture to your pool deck. It also makes the concrete cooler and is very comfortable to walk on with bare feet. The non-porous properties of the material keep dirt, chemicals and oils from penetrating the surface which protects the concrete.

How it’s done

The Cooldeck Classic Texture is an acrylic water-base texture spray system which is applied to your pool deck. Once sprayed on, it is then “knocked” down with a trowel. After it dries, an acrylic finish coat is applied in 2 coats. The finish coat is what gives the coating its final color and protection.

Features & Benefits

  • Slip-resistant texture provides a safe environment under all types of conditions
  • Non-porous acrylic finish coat keeps dirt, oil and chemicals from penetrating the coating – meaning reduced time and money spent on maintenance
  • Varying degrees of texture produce a comfortable walking surface for bare feet – cooler than concrete, brick or tile
  • One of the most economical and durable decorative concrete coatings available
  • 3-5 step process allows for a variety of design effects while providing a consistent chemical bond with the concrete and each step applied

Hayward Pool Equipment

Every pool will need a pool pump, a filter, lights, and a heater or heat pump.

The pool pump is in charge of the pool’s circulation system. It pulls water from the pool through the skimmers and main drain. It pushes the water through the filter and then returns it to the pool through the main returns.

The filter is what collects all of the debris that can end up in pool water. It captures this debris through the drains on the bottom and through skimmers at the water’s edge.

Lights illuminate, steps and ladders give entry and exit points to your pool.

Chlorination Options

To keep your pool healthy and your water crystal clear, it requires chlorination systems. These systems are very technologically advanced and the process of maintaining a pool is relatively easy with these advances. You can control all of this through an app on your phone!

Your pool requires chlorine for example to inhibit algae growth and it keeps water safe by neutralizing and attacking any harmful bacteria and microorganisms.

There are a variety of ways your pool can stay clean and healthy through the use of chlorinators and salt systems.
