Pool-Krete®


A vinyl-lined pool - the most affordable choice and Pool-Krete® can help bring out its best. A foundation of sand/cement can quickly wear out the liner when every step is like taking sandpaper to the underside of the liner, but Pool-Krete®'s non-abrasive formula can add years to the life of a liner.
A Pool-Krete® in-ground Vinyl-lined pool is more attractive and easier to maintain than other installations. With sand, unsightly heel or footprints appear on the bottom. With either sand or sand/cement, ironing the sand rusts and bleeds through pinholes worn in the liner.
Longer lasting, more attractive and easier to maintain - Pool-Krete® brings out the best in any pool!

The mixture is easier to mix and trowel due to the inclusion of additives to improve workability. When properly mixed each rugged poly bag yields four cubic feet of material in place. SPA is one of the best insulating concrete materials designed for the professional pool builder. SPA is a blend of exfoliated vermiculite with special mixtures to aid in the mixing, pumping, placing and troweling of materials in a pool base. Pool-Krete® SPA requires the addition of water and portland cement at the job site.
