Rockwork

As the Leasing Manager of a large apartment complex it is your responsibility to employ contractors to maintain the grounds.

As a result, it has accumulated calcium build up that must be removed biannually. You always call Tru Blu Pool Remodeling for all your pool’s repair needs because you can trust us. We are reliable, punctual and have established a great working rapport with your company.

If you desire a grotto effect, cave aesthetic or a tropical paradise without leaving the comfort of your own home, rockwork is the way to go. Our pool professionals have extensive experience with maintaining, cleaning and repairing rockwork. If you have rockwork on your property, give us a call for a free quote.

Calcium Buildup

Calcium buildup is just the nature of the beast. Water is constantly rushing over the rockwork and when it dries calcium deposits are left behind. These deposits form white streaks down the exterior of the rockwork and render it less natural in appearance. Once the buildup is removed, the rockwork looks so realistic that you can nearly fool a geologist. Rockwork is designed to appear natural but once the deposits form, the fiberglass rockwork looks kitschy. If you have a need for calcium buildup removal, send us a few pictures and give us an approximation of the size of the space. We’d be happy to provide you with an estimate over the phone.

Removing Calcium Buildup

Calcium buildup is removed by resurfacing and sealing the existing rockwork. Once Tru Blu Pool Remodeling Tampa gets a hold of your rockwork, it will be like new within a matter of hours. Despite its appearance, rockwork is not as durable as many think. During your pool party, your friend’s teenage son got a little too carried away and decided to impress everyone by climbing your rockwork and cannonballing into the deep end of the pool. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but he somehow managed to kick a hole into your rockwork, exposing the spun fibers for the world to see. We do these repairs monthly and we’d be happy to do them for you too should the situation arise.

Removing Rockwork
