Important Notice. Swimming
pool dealers, Installers or Contractors all refurbish swimming pools. It is prudent to find out how much specialist knowledge
they have for concrete swimming pools. It is not uncommon to have heard from a swimming pool contractor that the only way
to refurbish a marbelite swimming pool is to install a liner. The swimming pool dealer only sold liners, and had no experience
of concrete or Marbelite refurbishment. Swimming pool installers can also recommend fibre glassing the pool. This again be
relevant in certain circumstances, however there are other routes that would be more applicable.
