The Pool-Krete Difference
Foundations of sand/cement can quickly wear out the liner of your pool. Every step is like taking sandpaper to the underside of your liner. But not with Pool-Krete. Pool-Krete's nonabrasive formula can add years to the life of your liner.
A Pool-Krete vinyl lined pool is more attractive than those utilizing sand/cement as it's foundation. With sand you can get unsightly heel or footprints as your weight displaces the soft base below. And with either sand or sand/cement, you can get discoloration as the iron in the sand rusts and bleeds through pinholes worn in the liner.
A vinyl lined pool with a Pool-Krete foundation is also easier and less expensive to maintain than those with other foundations. Even routine brushing or vacuming takes a toll on the liner. But thanks to Pool-Krete's non-abrasive formula, worry free and hassle-free normal pool maintenence is a snap and there's less stress on the liner!
