What Is Swimming Pool Mastic?

Swimming pool mastic is also known as pool caulking or pool sealant and is a strong, durable, flexible, putty-like sealant that is used to fill or seal gaps between building materials or between your pool’s deck and the pool coping.

The primary purpose of pool mastic is to prevent water from leaking into the area between your pool shell and the pool’s deck and causing water damage. Swimming pool mastic also enhances the appearance of the pool area and prevents air and insects from getting inside and creating problems.

Several different types of swimming pool mastic are available, so when you need pool mastic repair or replacement, it’s best to consult professional pool technicians like Clear Choice Pool Care. Our company has the experience to professionally remove and replace the mastic joint to protect your investment. Call today to schedule a free estimate!

The Importance of Mastic Joint for Your Swimming Pool’s Health

  • Swimming pool mastic is a flexible joint between your pool’s deck and the pool coping.
  • Pool mastic’s ground movement adaptation is significant and allows it to adjust to the ever-shifting Texas ground, which will prevent cracks and damage.
  • Swimming pool mastic expands and contracts with temperature changes that affect your swimming pool, which means it’s always in the proper state to prevent damage.
  • Pool mastic is waterproof and can withstand various chemicals used for regular pool maintenance.
  • Proper pool mastic joint care can save you money by preventing costly damage and the need for expensive swimming pool repairs in the future.
  • Swimming pool mastic works with your pool’s coping and creates a solid seal between it and your pool’s deck, which keeps it dry.
    • For concrete decks, pool mastic prevents cracks from appearing.
    • For wooden decks, pool mastic prevents rot from setting in.

When Is Pool Mastic Replacement Needed?

Generally, a swimming pool’s mastic needs to be replaced every few years; however, there are some signs that may indicate immediate action should be taken.

Replace Your Pool Deck Mastic When It Has Cracks

Cracks in your pool decking indicate that your swimming pool is having difficulties handling changes in weather and temperature. This means your swimming pool’s mastic is likely not expanding and contracting properly. These cracks often start as minor issues, but if the situation isn’t addressed quickly, they can become more severe and difficult to fix.

Tiles Falling Off Your Pool’s Wall Can Be a Sign to Replace Pool Tile Mastic

Tiles falling off your pool’s wall might be a sign the glue on the pool tiles has worn away, but it can also be a sign that your pool’s mastic is working too hard and needs to be replaced. This most commonly occurs after a period of extreme weather. You should always check your pool’s mastic if you’ve recently experienced severe weather conditions in your area.

Replace Pool Mastic When There Is Separation Between Your Pool’s Decking and Coping

Over time, separations may occur between your pool’s decking and coping. While these gaps may start small, they can quickly worsen if the problem isn’t addressed. Gaps between your pool’s decking and coping can be a sign your pool mastic isn’t adequately bonded to the concrete portions of your pool.

If you notice gaps between your pool’s decking and coping, call a professional pool repair company as soon as possible to prevent the issue from worsening.
