I've had to do several small patch jobs (8" x 8") due to rebar ties rusting through. I called several pool builders for 1.) advice on how to do the repair and 2.) materials. One local builder had some extra and filled a baggie for me. Getting ready for my fourth repair this morning. -Rick
Answer: I admit I'm not familiar with marcite. However, in regards to the rebar rust spots. Simply filling them in will allow them to return within a few months. Ideally, you'll need to cut down an inch or so, and use a grinder to grind down the long rebar/rebar tie. Then use a plaster patch. All other products to "cover" rebar rust spots are only temporary, and failure to eliminate the source of the rust will allow it to return soon.

Marcite is a thing of the past, at least here in Florida. It used to be a good product, but after the removal of asbestos, it does not last as long as before. The quaztz aggregate finish replaced marcite. Instead of use of marble,like in marcite, it uses quartz. Diamond Brite is one of many brands available. Then you have hydrazzo which is a kind of marcite with a twist; it is polished after finished to a glassy feeling. Pebble finish is also available; it is a little bit rougher than quartz aggregate finish. The latest thing for pool finish is the use of glass beads(beadcrete).

Marcite was the material used to finish the interior of a concrete swimming pool. It is in simple terms a mixture of crushed marble and white cement mixed with water to form plaster which is then applied to the pool floor and walls with trowels to provide a smooth finish for the interior of the pool . These days we use what are known as exposed aggrigate materials to finish pools which contain man made quartz such as Diamond brite.

No. An older (possibly better) type of Fiberglass pool was constructed in this manner, with a concrete/Gunnite/Marcite trowled bottom and Fiberglass panels at the side of the pool. Panels are caulked together along vertical joints. Actually not a bad deal, but caulked joints must be maintained. Once the concrete starts showing through at the bottom of the pool, its time to drain and resurface. Bottom of pool should be acid washed every 3-5 years to keep it sparkling and remove mold, mildew, stains. If bottom surface is chipping off, its getting close to time to resurface bottom of pool. Bottom is treated just like any concrete/gunite/Marcite pool surface. Sides are simply brushed, caulked in timely manner.
