How do you touch up fiberglass pools?

Fiberglass Facelift

The makeover craze is hitting everywhere. It's become popular with everyone from moms to models. You can't turn on the TV without seeing some sort of makeover-themed show. Even pools are getting into the act.

For concrete pools a re-plastering of the surface every 7 to 10 years does the trick. Though, fiberglass pools (for the most part) have been the exception to this “makeover must” rule (since a fiberglass surface is designed to keep its beauty for the longest). However, from time to time fiberglass pools might need an adjustment. If a small area begins to dull or change colors you can fix it by applying Gelcoat paint to the area. However, if the damaged space is too large to touch up you will have to recoat the entire fiberglass swimming pool. Since you do need to drain the pool to recoat, it would probably be a good idea to call in a “pool maintenance” professional.
