How do you mix Marbelite for pools?

Marbelite should be mixed with 3.2 litres of clean water per 20 kg bag to produce a stiff, workable plaster mix. Don’t leave any dry powder, as this will impair bonding. Extra water or any other Additives should not be added. Work your way up to the surface by filling the pool from the deep end.

Once the plaster has been mixed, it is ready to be applied. Apply a thin layer of plaster to each of the four corners of your pool. This will act as a barrier between the water and the concrete, and will help to prevent water from seeping into your concrete.

If you wish, you can also apply a second layer on top of this first layer, but be careful not to apply too much plaster or you may end up with a pool that is too slippery to swim in. Once you have applied the first coat, repeat the process for the second and third coats, until you are happy with the results.

How long after Marbelite can you add chemicals?

You will have to wait 28 days for the automatic pool cleaner to be connected to your marbelite pool. Check the total alkalinity and adjust it between 80 and 120 parts per million. Chloride to the water may be necessary to prevent premature degradation of the pool lining and equipment.

How is Marbelite applied?

Use a rounded steel trowel to apply the material, pressing it onto the pool surface with the trowel to a layer thickness of about 1/2 inch. Allow to dry for at least 24 hours before re-applying. If you are using a pool cover, you will need to apply a thin layer of marmelite over the cover to prevent water from seeping in.

How long can you leave a Marbelite pool empty?

It is recommended that the marbelite pool be filled within 12 – 24 hours after application is complete. The new finish has the risk of drying out if not filled and covered properly.

Which pool chemicals go first?

Adding chemicals for a newly filled pool alkalinity adjustments: it’s recommended to start with any adjustments to total alkalinity (ta) first, because of its effect on ph levels. (AC) to the water will raise the TA to 80-85 parts per million.

If you have a pH of 7.0-7.5, you may need to increase the amount of Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) in your water by 1-2 parts per million (ppm). You may also want to add a few drops of Epsom Salt (EtOAc) or Sodium Hydroxide to your tap water if you are using a water softener.

This will help keep your pH from dropping too low, which can lead to algae blooms and other problems.

How long should Marbelite last?

A variety of colors can be found in Marbelite, a coloured marble plaster with a cement base. If done correctly, marbelite can last 15 to 20 years, but at some point you may need to re-marbelite it. The first step is to remove the marbled marble from the base of the tile. This can be done by using a sharp knife to cut the marble into small pieces and then placing the pieces on a flat surface.

You can also use a marble scraper to gently scrape away any marbles that are stuck to the surface of your marble. Once you have removed all the excess marble, it is time to start marbling. To marble marble you will need the following tools: a mortar and pestle, a rolling pin, an electric drill and a drill press.

Marbling marble takes a bit of practice but once you get the hang of it you’ll be able to do it in no time at all. It is important that you use the right tool for the job at hand.

Can Marbelite be patched?

Apart from a mask, snorkel and a clear zip-seal bag, all you need is enough Pratley Putty (Standard Setting) for the size of the crack or chip. A single pack is usually enough for most repairs. Setting’ version of Pratley Putty cures quicker than the other versions.

Can you put all the chemicals in the pool at the same time?

You should not add all pool chemicals at the same time. Pool chemicals should not be mixed together. Chemicals can cause dangerous reactions and injuries if they are added at the same time. It will be difficult to balance the chemicals in the pool.
