When applying Marblite to the swimming pool, we require good weather that’s not too windy and with no chance of rain. The wet Marblite plaster runs a risk of being smeared or damaged while still wet. Children and animals must also be kept away from the pool until it is filled the following day. Marblite is a form of plaster that gets trowelled onto the gunite.
Marblite plaster makes the pool smooth and provides waterproofing. Marblite can’t be exposed to the sun for long periods of time.
Once applied it must dry for ± 24 hours after which the pool will be filled with water. Marblite cures underwater for the 1st 3 months. It requires looking after and must get swept daily for the 1st month and 3 times a week thereafter. If dust settles on a new Marblite pool, brown marks will form. Rough Marblite results from incorrect chemical application, thus it is important that the water’s pH is checked on a regular basis.
