Water Flecks is manufactured to be the most ideal, most durable soft surfacing for water play and submerged surfaces. Water Flecks is antimicrobial and chlorine stable. It is a UV stable system, meaning that it is resistant against material and color degradation in the sun. It is the only surface on the market with a five-year crack-proof warranty. It is a troweled-in-place surface, not a tile, carpet, or paint. As an impact-absorbing system, injury risks from slip-and-falls are greatly reduced.
Chlorine stable: Unlike most soft safety surfaces that disintegrate in water, Water Flecks can withstand water and chlorine immersion.
Anti-microbial: Both the Water Flecks granule and binder have anti-microbial additives.
Highly durable: Flecks features a strong chemical bond, resulting in high durability, which makes it a favorite choice for even the world's busiest resorts and amusement parks.
Safe: Non-slip and impact absorbing, greatly reducing chance of injury.
Low-maintenance: Because of its UV stability, Flecks does not need routine maintenance or seals -- we call it our "set it and forget it" surface. Cleanings can be done with a powerwasher.
Virtually crack-proof: As a resilient surface, Flecks can stretch. This greatly reduces risk of cracking.
Easily repaired: The product's granule features a "close knit" -- making spot repairs virtually unnoticeable.

WaterFlecks can be installed over concrete, wood, asphalt, stone, metal, crushed stone, crushed stone aggregate, and fiberglass. You can find pdfs of our full Tech Specs with the links below.

Your Water Flecks can be cleaned with a high pressure power washer of 3,000 psi or less. For mold or mildew, use a 50% bleach/water solution, scrub, and allow to penetrate for five to twenty minutes, and thoroughly rinse. Surface dirt can be removed with a household degreaser such as Simple Green.
The surface is difficult to stain, but oil will stain it. Make sure to thoroughly rinse out any spilled oil.
Hard water will leave water marks on everything it comes into contact with, including: stucco, cement, windows, painted surface, and decorative stones. Water stains can be removed with white household vinegar. Wet the surface, mist with straight vinegar, and hose off. Repeat as needed.
Water Flecks is warranted for three years against bond failure, cracking, and delamination.
