Painting your pool is most cost effective method to make an old pool look new and rejuvenated. Paints come in a variety of different colours and are a two-part epoxy resin. The typical life span of paint is between seven to ten years. Typically we perform surface preparation which involves grinding back any loose / flaking paint, then we acid etch the surface and finally we use a heavy duty detergent to wash the surface. Next, we apply tape to any areas we do no wish to allow paint to touch and at this time we also apply the first coat of paint and cut in under the tile line. Then, on the final day we apply the final coat of paint and again cut in under the tile line. The pool is then left for ten days to cure. After ten days the pool is refilled with water. Painting the pool is ideal for people wishing to sell their house in the near future.
