How much does it cost to patch a swimming pool?
A patch will cost anywhere from $250 at the lower end of repair requirements and up to $800 for much larger and more extensive patch work. The color of your diamond brite pool also can influence the cost of your patch slightly.
The most important thing to remember is that if you care for the aesthetics of your swimming pool, it is best to hire a professional pool repair company that is experienced in Diamond Brite finishes to patch your diamond brite. That way it’ll look like the damage never existed!
Do pool patches repair the leaks in my diamond brite?
It’s important to understand that leak detections and pool plaster repair are two different services.
A patch is a plaster mix specifically designed for underwater surface repair, but you will need to consult with your expert pool service company for advice and more information on leak detection. Leaks will require different equipment and products to repair.
Can I just patch my own diamond brite?
Absolutely! You can find diamond brite patches online for an affordable price. But it’s recommended to get a specialist who will be able to color match your Diamond Brite more closely. You don’t want your patch to stand out from the rest of your pool finish.
There is also the cost of pool equipment to consider if you attempt a DIY repair. The savings of buying your own patch and repair equipment would be a small difference. It may be more cost-effective to hire an expert with years of experience.
I have leaks, cracks, bubbles, and more. Should I just resurface my whole pool?
As mentioned previously, although you might only need a pool plaster patch, it may be the right time to get a diamond brite resurface. There will be a point where patching your pool will cost you more long-term than just resurfacing your pool.
If your pool is suffering from other damage such as cracks and bubbles, it could be a good time to completely resurface your pool. Not only for the structural maintenance of the pool but also for the aesthetics.
The goal is to make your diamond brite last as long as it can, and once it reaches 8-12 years of age, then you should simply resurface your pool.
