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.

Good coverage paint
Paint covered great with 1 heavy coat thru sprayer , would have done 2ND coat but
I did not purchase enough
I purchased this for my pool deck. It keeps the deck considerably cooler than the raw cement. I would recommend this in area where the heat is burning your feet. It made me a believer.

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

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!

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.
Just what the pool doctor ordered. Works as advertised. Good coverage, Good product...

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.

We just painted and filled our pool. The surface was very rough so we wanted something to make it easier on the kids feet without paying to have it resurfaced. Not sure how old it is, but probably 10 to 20 years and it is gunite. The first coat of this paint took a good while because the gunite really soaked it up, but the second and third coats only took a couple of hours each. I bought enough for two coats, but had enough left over for an additional coat. It looks absolutely beautiful and it
... read more is easy on the feet. The only problem is that in a few places we had bubbles or blisters come up and the pool vacuum sucked them off so you can see the white pool surface in a few round spots in the blue paint. We chose pool blue. It is really beautiful, but I am almost wishing we had chosen white so the spots would not be noticeable. We thought the paint would immediately start coming up around these spots, but it has been 3 weeks and it is holding up really well. I think I got the paint on a little thick in spots and this is what caused the bubbling. All in all we are really pleased and may actually paint it again in a couple of years. I did get the paint on sale during the winter months so we paid about half price. We also bought a cheap white gallon of pool paint and mixed colors and put Little Mermaid and her fish and crab on the walls just for fun. I expect they will bleach out, but so far they are still there and really cute. The kids had fun painting them.
