What is Mastic for Swimming Pools?

Mastic is a flexible sealant material used to fill the gap between your pool deck and the coping stones or tiles. Its primary purpose is to create a waterproof barrier that prevents water from seeping beneath the pool deck and causing damage to the pool structure.

How Does Mastic Work?

Mastic works by forming a tight seal between the pool deck and coping, effectively preventing water intrusion. It is flexible and durable, allowing it to expand and contract with temperature changes without cracking or deteriorating. This flexibility is crucial in regions with extreme weather conditions.

How Long Does Pool Mastic Last?

The life span of pool mastic varies based on climate, usage, and maintenance. On average, properly installed or replaced mastic lasts from 5 to 10 years. In regions with extreme weather conditions or high levels of sun exposure, mastic may degrade more quickly.

Regular maintenance and inspections help prolong the life span of pool mastic. Watch for cracks, gaps, or discoloration and address them promptly to prevent water damage and maintain the integrity of your pool structure. If you're unsure about the condition of your pool mastic, our team can assess its condition and recommend the appropriate course of action.

Leave Mastic Repairs & Replacements to the Experts

Replacing pool mastic is a job best left to the professionals. While some homeowners may attempt a DIY repair, improper installation can lead to more significant issues down the line. Calling in the professionals ensures that the job is done correctly the first time - saving you time, money, and headaches in the long run. Additionally, if your pool is due for a full remodel, it may be more practical to include mastic replacement as part of the renovation process for a seamless and cohesive finish.
