They have a normal lifespan of the life of the pool, spa or project where they are installed.
4 nighttime colors available at this time. FireFly (yellow/green). Aqua (blue/green). Glacier Blue (med blue) and Sapphire (dark blue).
After about 15 minutes or more of direct sun exposure, our products will continue to glow for days in complete darkness.
We recommend 1 LB of glow concrete aggregates for every 40 to 50 square feet of pool/spa surface. We have pool builders that double this amount for their customers to achieve a very impressive saturated glow result.
We fabricate 6 different sizes. Large about ¼” in size. Medium about 3/16” in size. Small about 1/8” in size. Fine about 5/64” in size. Extra Fine similar to regular sugar gains and Powder which is equal to powdered sugar size. All crystals are irregular in size due to method of fabrication.
Sprinkle the glow aggregates directly onto the final finish of wet concrete either by hand, hand fertilizer spreader or large salt shaker. After spreading, trowel them in and smooth out the surface. Then, allow the concrete to cure. After the concrete has cured, apply an acid wash to clean and expose the glow aggregate to the sunlight. A cement sealer is optional.
