    Surface Preparation & Repair

    1. 4 years ago
      So far everything has gone fine, primer went on great, had enough for two coats, was able to put the super epoxy on the next day, said we needed a little over two gallons, so bought three, one gallon almost done it, couldn't figure it out, but it looks beautiful, used the lambswool roller cover and it spread so nice....waiting for the weather to cooperate so we can do the floor...so far so good.

      The Epoxy Primer and Super Epoxy Paint (dark blue) were easy to apply on our 30 year old cement bottom pool. We followed the preparation and painting steps to the "T" and one coat of the paint turned into a beautiful hard shell. We waited a full 5 days before filling the pool. So far, so good!

      Good product
      I bought this product to reset some loose tiles underwater and it worked well but for the tiles above the waterline I had to use their E-Z Patch 3 to set the tiles and E-Z Patch 4 to grout. All 3 products worked very well.

      This groutvis great. It's fast acting, so you need to work quickly and have a bucket of water and wash clothes ready.

      Excellent
      We have a 17year old pool. This stuff works great for tile replacement and even to go over the old grout. Looks great. Dries quickly.

      Fairly easy to use
      I bought this when a stray dog managed to get in our pool and tore the liner trying to get out. The patch kit was easy to use and has held so far (used almost a month ago).

      Pretty Good
      First I tried repairing my pool liner under water near my return. Followed the instructions of applying glue, folding in half, submerge under water and stick on liner. That didn't work at all for me. I had to lower my water below the return and tried again. It worked perfect on a dry liner. I'm happy that it's sticking great and no water is leaking through the wall, but not happy about draining some of the water. I can't imagine having a leak at the bottom of the pool and trying to fix it.

      Great product!
      The product worked well. I cleaned the back of the tile, applied the caulk, and reattached it. Our tile is heavy, Italian made, and it is wall tile. So I was delighted it held.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Pool Surface Prep & Repair Products

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Patch, Prep and Paint your Pool

    On this page you will find products to condition or recondition your pool surfaces. Plaster, vinyl or fiberglass pools may eventually need pool surface repairs, have pool tile problems or need to prepare a pool for repainting or resurfacing. Find also pool leak detection products, to locate pool leaks and make fast repairs with our sealants or adhesives. For painted pools, find all of your pool paint prep and painting supplies in one place. 


    Pool Leak Repair

    Find and fix pool leaks before they result in structural damage to the pool or deck. In The Swim carries Leak Dye and Pool Putty so that you can test suspected leaks around skimmers, returns, drains and lights, and patch them quickly and permanently with one of our leak repair sealants. For leaks through the pool light cord conduit, use our Light Cord Stoppers or our black Butyl Tape to seal up leaking pool lights fast and easily. 

    Pool Paint Prep

    To prep a pool for painting, clean all surfaces with TSP to remove grease and oil, then acid washing to remove scale and roughen the surface slightly. In The Swim has many products for pool paint prep like our TSP pool surface cleaner, Acid Magic, Prep Magic or the complete Smart Seal surface preparation kit. See also our Pool Painting Kit, with brushes, rollers, pan and mixing paddles. Pool cracks can be filled with Rubberseal or Epoxy Patch before painting.

    Pool Paint Primers

    For painting with epoxy pool paint, Epoxy Primer and Gunite Primer can be used in preparation of pool painting with our one-step Super Poxy Shield pool paint. Epoxy primer is used with smooth surface pools like plaster and fiberglass, and Gunite primer is used on rough surface pools to fill-in and make small chips and divots on the floor and wall less noticeable. Pool paint solvents are used for clean-up, or use Epoxy Solvent or Rubber Based Solvent for testing a paint chip to determine the current type of paint used on the pool.

    Pool Plaster Repair

    In The Swim carries EZ Patch 1 Fast Set white pool plaster repair kit for quick and permanent repair of cracks, divots or delaminated pool plaster. EZ Patch 1 is a mix of marble dust and white Portland cement, otherwise known as whitecoat or marcite. White color pool plaster patch is used to patch cracks or uneven areas, or to parge around tiles, skimmers, drains and return fittings. Easy to use plaster mix, just add water and included bonding additive, stir and apply. EZ Patch 1-FS can be applied underwater or above water. 

    Vinyl Liner Repair

    At one point, every vinyl liner pool owner will be faced with the need to patch the pool liner. In The Swim has the Vinyl Liner Patch Kit and the EZ Patch 28 Flexible Sealant. Our traditional Vinyl Patch kit includes 138 sq. in. of patch material and 4 oz of vinyl cement, which can also be used to glue your own matching vinyl pattern patches. EZ Patch 28 is a very thick sealant that can be molded underwater into a patch for vinyl tears, or to seal around wall fitting faceplates and rings. For patching uneven or cracked vinyl pool floors, Palmetto Vermiculite is the perfect pool base, for in-ground and above ground vinyl pools.

    Pool Tile Repair

    To replace pool tiles, prepare a smooth surface and bottom ledge, then use a notched trowel to rake EZ Patch 4 Fast Set white pool tile grout across a 12"  or less area. Push the tile on firmly and allow it to set-up for a few hours. EZ Patch 4-FS is also used next, as a tile grout, to fill in between and around the smaller tile pieces. Just mix with water and apply with a grout float or stiff sponge, and then wipe off with damp cloth. For tiling fiberglass pools, replacing individual tile pieces or applying decorative tile accents, use Underwater Magic or EZ Patch 22 silicone adhesive and sealant. 

    Pool Caulk Repair

    In The Swim stocks the best pool caulk - Vulkem 45 pool caulk and EZ Patch 23 pool caulk so that you can repair or replace your own expansion joint caulk between the pool deck and the back edge of the pool coping. Vulkem 45 SSL pool caulk is available in 3 colors, and is sold in a large quart tube that fits standard quart tube caulking guns. To avoid wasted caulk or sunken caulk areas, first push-in our foam Backer Rod, in 3 sizes to fit your expansion joint width.
