Acrylic has the same refractive index as water so the thickness of the panel is not apparent when you are looking through it. It appears as paper thin. Durability of an outdoor acrylic pool panel is almost unbreakable and impact resistant.

Diamond Brite Finish For Your Pool

Platinum Pools of DFW is an expert in Diamond Brite pool finishes.  We have been working with Diamond Brite finish since it first came out and we can help you decide if this is the right way to go for your pool.  You might be asking yourself what Diamond Brite is or you might know all about the benefits.  Please read more about Diamond Brite so that you can decide whether this enhancement is right for your pool.

What is Diamond Brite for pools?

Diamond Brite is an exposed aggregate pool finish blended from natural quartz aggregate, polymer modified cement, and non-fading colorquartz in a stunning variety of colors. This unique interior pool finish is durable, easy to maintain and comfortable to swimmers' feet.  Diamond Brite is an exposed aggregate, which means it isn't smooth. With a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years, and with a stunning appearance, it is an excellent choice for some pools.


How much does it cost to Diamond Brite a pool?

Each style and color has a different price, but a Diamond Brite finish costs about $5,000 to $10,000. We recommend staying away from the darker colors. The most expensive of the three options, glass tiles can give you a stunning, high-end pool finish.

Can you acid wash a Diamond Brite pool?

Diamond Brite is a brand of plaster that some pool owners use to cover their gunite pools. Over time however, Diamond Brite plaster will become stained from the chemicals used in your pool. These stains can be removed by acid-washing your pool after the water is drained from it.

How often should you acid wash a pool?

Your pool generally only needs an acid-washing every five to seven years if you regularly treat and maintain the water in it, recommends the Bratton Pools website. Acid-washing your pool more often can damage the plaster coating inside the pool because the acid strips away a small layer of it each time you do it.
