StartUp-Tec's Surface Curing Treatment utilizes the "PK 3-Day" Startup method. This revolutionary new startup treatment process creates a cured pool surface with little or no plaster dust formation, mottling, and/or staining in just three days. StartUp-Tec also helps to create an smoother surface finish on even colored plaster (grey, black, etc.), quartz, exposed aggregate, and pebble type finishes.
StartUp-Tec's "PK 3-Day" Method eliminates most surface brushing and damage due to improper and/or inadequate brushing associated with many conventional startup methods. This treatment process also reduces the amount of acid needed during the startup process. This results in less acid handling, added cost, and potential damage to all pool surfaces.
StartUp-Tec provides total control and prevention of all metals and mineral scales during the new pool startup or newly re-plastered pool startup, conventional sequestering agents provide limited protection. it significantly reduces the amount and accumulation of plaster dust throughout the new pool startup period, the conventional 28 day process often produced heavy plaster dust. It significantly reduces the amount of surface brushing during startup, the conventional startup requires frequent brushing during the first 7 to 10 days or longer. It significantly reduces the amount of pH / alkalinity adjustment during the startup period, the conventional method requires frequent adjustment and/or acid washing.
