I was a little concerned since I had rubber base on the cement pool. I power washed it before I painted but nothing else. It went on and covered so nicely and the cleanup is great. I waited a year to write this review because I wanted to see how it looked this year and I'm truly amazed. No bubbles or chips like the rubber base. This is really great stuff.

Aqua Coat L@@KING Good
Due to drought here in Union County NC, and not being able to properly fill the pool the previous year. We had to close up pool and not use. The pool looked bad all green and ugly. Our pool is 10 years old, so we decided the only way to get that fresh clean look back was to drain the pool completely, scrub the wall and paint. Boy it looks great, we searched high and low for pool paint in this area and could not find any. We received a catalogue for In The Swim and PROBLEM SOLVED.
Finding the right paint at a In The Swim is much easier than at a paint specialty store. There is no hassle and it's so convenient.

Sort of Pleased
We looked high and low for a pool deck paint color that would work. We wanted something darker, more rich. We were so excited when we found the "Putty" color. This excitment lasted until we opened the can. Definitely not even remotely close to the color on the screen. It was more gray than deep brown. We decided to apply it, with the hopes that it would somehow darken after drying. It did darken up a little bit, but again, was no where near close to the color on the screen. I understand that a
... read more computer color rendering will never be the same as the color in real life, but this was nuts. We checked with In the Swim and the mfg, Kelley Technical, who checked the color code and confirmed that we had the right color...putty.
Ultimately, we ended up putting the paint down b/c the prep was done and we just wanted to finish the project. The paint went on beautifully and dried to a great surface. The only disappointment was the color!

I purchased the deck paint last year the narrow concrete it has held up well but this year I had to repaint the larger areas ,I noticed the lare areas when wet some places the paint would blister when dry it would lay back down,when I sprayed the concrete with a water hose the paint would flake off taking the smooth surface of the concrete off I prepared it right the paint stayed on the concrete but the concrete would flake off just on the big areas.I don't know why that happened.
Use this paint every year to freshen pool, Inground pool that we have had for 33 years.

First time using.
Needed to paint my 42 year old gunite after being closed for three plus years. Used prep magic to prepare surface, that was a lot easier then the old way.( just follow instruction ).
Then used Envirolon Rubber-Based Pool Paint worked great covered really well, just make sure area is well ventilated (strong smell) watch the temperature outside follow application instructions.
Pool up and running looks great very pleased.
