“Do it Once, Do it Right!”
G.R. knows pools. Renovating, restoring and rejuvenating concrete pools and spas is what we do. G.R. understands the significance of using the right people for the right job. We use no subcontractors. Our hands-on approach ensures that our high standards are met on each job site. Whatever your needs, you can rest assured that our products and services are backed by our company warranty.
G.R. knows Marbelite. Choose from our basic white Marbelite finish or our custom blended Rockcite™ Quartz finish Marbelite. G.R. Pools offers three series of Marbelite: Classic, Pepper or Granite. You may also choose from any other commercially-available exposed aggregate or glass pool finishes. Our trained installers have the knowledge and expertise to work with any pool finish you may desire.
What is Rockcite™ Marbelite?
Rockcite™ is G.R. Pools’ trademark. It is a custom-blended finish formulated by G.R. not in a lab-setting but after many years of on site, in the field work.
Rockcite™ offers many advantages over a pre-packaged, pre-blended marbelite. Since Rockcite™ is mixed on-site, we can control for different environmental conditions. Our spring formulation varies from our fall formulation in that each has the distinction of special additives to ensure optimal strength, curing and bonding properties. Each formula takes into consideration variables such as temperature, humidity, expected rainfall and wind speeds. And with custom-blending, your design possibilities are virtually endless.
Series 1: Rockcite™ Classic Series Marbelite
This series is blended using pigments specially formulated for the swimming pool industry which are both UV and chemical resistant. Choose from our Classic White, Morning Sky Blue, Seafoam Green, Steel Grey, Charcoal Grey and Midnight Grey marbelite colours. Custom blending available.
Series 2: Rockcite™ Pepper Series Marbelite
This is our entry-level quartz enhanced finish using genuine 3M coloured quartz aggregate. One of the greatest innovations in the swimming pool industry has been the addition of quartz aggregate to marbelite – this union strengthens the integrity of the marbelite finish and aids in resisting chemical aggression. Choose from our Pepper, Ocean Mist and Cayman Breeze marbelite colours. Custom blending available.
Series 3: Rockcite™ Granite Series Marbelite
This is our premier level quartz enhanced finish. It is our strongest and most durable quartz-enhanced finish containing 33% genuine 3M coloured quartz aggregate. This series is often used in commercial applications as tests show over 24% more resistance to spot-etching, checking, crazing and chemical aggression. Choose from our Jemstone Blue, Jemstone Teal, Slate Grey, Dessert Stone, Lagoona Blue or Arctic Green marbelite colours. Custom blending available.
Waterline Tile & Slate
G.R. knows tiles. We offer a wide variety of tiles to choose from. Our inventory consists of anything from a 1” x 1” porcelain to a 12” x 12” natural mottled slate tile. All tiles are pool-grade and frost-proof to withstand our extreme cold climate. We also use bonding and adhesive materials that exceed industry standards. Combine these factors with the proficiency of our experienced tile setters and final the outcome has been 20 years of no warranty call backs.
Coping Stone & Quarry Tile
G.R. knows coping. Whether you choose to replace your existing coping with natural stone or, if conditions permit, remove and re-set your existing coping, G.R. provides an ample selection of stones and quarry tile to select from.
G.R. knows sandblasting. Marbelite cannot be applied directly onto a painted surface; the paint needs to be sandblasted. The surface then needs to be cleansed with hydrochloric acid which will leave the pool shell ready for the application of an acrylic-based bonding agent and later, the Marbelite finish. G.R. uses the latest sandblasting equipment and tools to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
