If you have been using Google search or Google Business for fiberglass pool repair you will find at least 25 or 30 manufactures and possibly 5 or 6 contractors that do fiberglass pool repair. There is a manufacture on the market today that offers an epoxy coating from a store that was not tested for swimming pool interiors the cost of this product is inexpensive and will not last more than one year, before it starts to chalk, blister and flake.
UltraGuard has been used since 2001 and over 5,000 home owners have used it successfully with failures less than 1% and longevity of 10 to 13 years. It took years for a pool chemist to create a formula that would last in water and to be used for fiberglass pool repair. We have repaired pools in California where they have earthquakes where the pools have major cracks that were leaking thousands of gallons of water a day. The UltraGuard product that we use to fiberglass pool repair is a 24oz thickness. This repair is 7 to 10 times stronger than a thickness of 6 inch concrete which is the average thickness of a gunite pool when first manufactured.
The average thickness that other companies use is an ounce and a half to two ounces which structurally will not last longer than a year or two, and the crack will reappear. Our 24oz fiberglass pool repair is guaranteed not to reappear for 5 years and we have done hundreds of these repairs with a longevity of 10 years or more were the customer is still satisfied. We will guarantee that particular crack but if the pool because of another earth quake the pool cracks again in another area we cannot be held responsible.
I don’t believe any manufacture or contractor in the pool industry that has the knowledge of fiberglass pool repair as I do. I was fiber glassing swimming pools 25 – 30 years ago. Where I used a chopper gun and sprayed large commercial pools. I did not wear a mask at that time and it gave me emphysema. I had another crew that would hand lay the fiberglass for smaller pools. Many of these pools had structural problems were they had cracks and of course were leaking. I had all kinds of failures the first 2 or 3 years which caused me to take personal bankruptcy, lost my house, trucks and the creditably I once had thank God for UltraGuard. It gave me back the creditably I lost.
As I mentioned above there are many different forms of fiberglass pool repair but it is now proven that UltraGuard is the only one that a home owner should consider buying.
