Freshen Up: Diamond Brite™ Quartz Blend Pool Finishes

With all of the varied pool finishes on the market these days, we get a lot of questions from prospective clients about what products to trust. This can be a complicated question to answer though because there are many factors that go into a great pool finish. While the standard white marble plaster finish can stand up against the test of time when properly installed, it is missing those finer details that will entice a pool owner to jump in and really enjoy the entire swimming experience. That is why we recommend that pool owners looking to install or refinish, consider quartz blend finishes. Our brand of choice is the Diamond Brite™ line of finishes by Southern Grouts and Mortars (SGM). According to SGM, “Diamond Brite™ finishes are blends of selected quartz aggregates and fortified white Portland cement ideal for new or re-finished swimming pools. Available in a variety of colors and textures, Diamond Brite™ finishes are factory blended to provide the pool owner with an extremely durable and attractive alternative to traditional pool coatings.”

Signature Pools of Texas uses the color French Gray in about 96% of our pools as it has the most natural blue finish. A majority of the pools have the moss rock and waterfalls so customers want the finish to blend in with the natural environment. We find that in addition to their uniqueness and beauty, Diamond Brite™ finishes are structurally superior with qualities like:

• Improved Bonding
• Reduced Water Penetration
• Increased Hardness
• Smooth Non-skid Surface
• Consistency
• Durability
• 10-year Warranty
• Etch and Stain Resistant

If you are in the market for a new finish, remember that your pool surface is not just there for you to walk on. With the range of options out there today like the line of quartz finishes by SGM, a finish can really enhance the overall beauty and experience associated with getting into your pool.
