When you are designing a custom pool or spa, you have the luxury of choosing every aspect of your design. This includes the pool finish that you choose for your hot tub’s floors and walls. When you work with Pools by Design to create your custom jacuzzi, we will always help you make a decision that fits your budget, your design goals, and your plans for how you will use your pool and spa. Although a basic plaster finish is always an option, using pebble tec is a wonderful choice.
Choosing pebble tec for your spa’s walls and flooring has many benefits.
What is Pebble Tec?
Pebble tec refers to using pebbles mixed with cement to cover the walls and floors of a pool or spa. It can be a generic term for this technique, or it can specifically refer to products from the company Pebble Tec ®️. Usually, the best pebble tec products come directly from this company.
Pebble tec often gives pools and spas a more natural look, as from a distance it can look like a river bed. Its textured appearance also makes it harder to see any chemical build-up, such as salt or chlorine residue. As a result, your pool will look better for any friends and family you bring to visit. You can customize the colors you choose for pebble tec and can pick anything from a mix of natural colors to bolder shades.
This finishing method is an alternative to the more classic option of plaster. A plaster-finished hot tub has a more simple look, although it is a cheaper method for a pool finish. The main issue with plaster, however, is that it can react with chlorine and other chemicals in your jacuzzi. The heat of your spa can also damage the plaster finish over time.
Choosing the Best Pool Finish
When you choose a finish for your spa, there are many factors to consider. Of course, the cost can be a big consideration. Pools and spas are big investments, and they can come with a large cost upfront. Although you may be tempted to try to lower your initial cost, you also need to consider long-term maintenance.
When it comes to these continuing costs, pebble tec is your best option. A plaster finish may need to be replaced sooner than pebble tec. Even if you save money upfront by going with plaster for your jacuzzi, you will spend more money tearing up your hot tub to replace the floor and wall finish every 5-10 years.
You also want to consider the overall experience you will have in your jacuzzi. Pebble tec’s natural texture is slip-resistant. This makes it safer to step into your new hot tub. The pebble tec’s texture also feels great against your feet. It becomes just one more feature in your luxurious spa experience.
