What Is Pebble Tec Pool Finish and Why Use It?

Pebble Tec® is a newer and popular pool finish material used for pool resurfacing and new pool construction.  While it is more expensive than plaster, it is considered the highest quality pool resurfacing material available.

Pebble Tec is made from a mixture of large and small natural pebbles that are usually mined from the earth or even taken from the famous black sand beaches in Chili. It is then turned into a specially formulated cement blend with pebble aggregates. The pebbles make up the majority of what you see, and a Pebble Tec surface actually looks like the bottom of a creek or a riverbed. 

Aesthetics: A Pebble Tec finish gives a very modern, clean and natural look especially with our creative pool designs. The pebble look is what is seen through the water and further accentuates the pool color finish.

Durability
: A Pebble Tec surface should last 20+ years with the proper care and maintenance. A plaster pool should be re-plastered approximately every 5 years. Even other surfaces like Diamond Brite or Florida Stucco Gem do not hold up as long as Pebble Tec when exposed to chemicals like chlorine that are added to keep the water sanitized. Pebble Tec also provides a lifetime warranty in Florida.

Choices: Pebble Tec offers five distinct pool finishes: PebbleTec, PebbleSheen®, PebbleFina®, and PebbleBrilliance™ offer a wide variety of visually stunning, nature-inspired colors that blend beautifully into any outdoor environment. We love to use Pebble Tec’s darker finishes so all the elements in the pool can be seen and create a mirror like reflective water. As a certified Elite Pebble Tec installer in South Florida, Ike’s works with clients to select the right color and enhancements based on the size of the pool, budget and surrounding landscape.
