    Pool Paint

    1. 9 years ago
      Am testing this coating
      I have a 25 year old pool...25000 gallons, 1200 sq/ft. of plaster. Replaster estimate was $6K. Decided to test this pool paint on the steps, benches, and spa. Used 2 gallons each of primer and paint. So far so good after 6 months. Some suggestions: Use a belt sander with 30 grit to remove 1/32" of the old surface plaster and create better adhesion. Plaster patch cracks. Acid wash and rinse. Mix only 1/2 a can at a time since the can life is only an hour and I was using a 4" paint ... read more brush.. Do use silicone sand on the horizontal surfaces as the paint is super slippery once it has set up. Lightly pumice stone the silicone sand areas once the paint has set up to reduce abrasion. In Tucson, my unheated water temp reaches 85d in the summer and 45d in the winter. If this paint holds up, I will use it on the total pool area after my next change of water.

      So far so good
      I am very satisfied with my paint job. It has only been 3 months since completion; so, I can not attest to its durability over several years yet. Please be prepared for a lot of work, but, the following tips will make your job easier and more successful. 1. Obtain a plastic 2 gallon flower watering cannister with a spout and a brush or broom for washing the pool sides and bottom. 2. Wash the pool twice with TSP (trisodium phosphate). It's like Tide soap with no fragent smell. I washed the pool ... read more twice because I did not use hot water. Rinse 3. Wash the pool with 50% pool acid and 50% water taking care to cover all areas with a flow of the mixture. BE CAREFUL, this wash is dangerous to skin! Work a 5 foot length of wall and let the mixture do the work as it will smoke and etch the pool sides and bottom. Rinse within a minute and keep plenty of water running to dilute the solution accumilating in the bottom of the pool. 4. Drain and acid wash the bottom of the pool. Rinse. 5. Wash the pool again with TSP. 6. Let the pool dry in warm temperatures for at least two days. 7. PAINT THE POOL WITH INTHESWIM PRIMER AND PAINT THE FINAL COAT OF EPOXY PAINT FROM 24 TO 48 HOURS AFTER THE PRIMER. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE CAN CAREFULLY. 8. When painting the tops of steps or other slippery type areas, use one cup of clean sand mixed in one quart of epoxy final coat to create a "non-slip" type surface. 9. The above advise and tips are from a one-time user of these products and are not intended to be from a professional pool painter with any guarantees. This advise merely comes from the personal experience of a do-it-yourself homeowner. Good luck with your project.

      A hard candy shell for your pool!
      My pool is over 25 years old and was an odd duck. Fiberglass walls and an unpainted cement bottom. There were cracks and it leaked like a sieve. The local pool folks wanted over $3000 to fix it up. We did it ourselves for half that cost. After acid washing, cement repair, prep and priming with In The Swim Gunite Primer, we painted. It took 5 gallons for my 15x30 pool. We couldn't believe the difference it has been three summer's now and it still looks brand new. We get tons of ... read more compliments and haven't had a single problem with chipping, peeling, detachment, etc. Nothing. Now, there are some steps you MUST take for success. First, the pool surface must be completely dry and I mean bone dry. Cement & plaster are porous and hold moisture inside. You must have several days of dry weather for it to completely dry out. You cant have ANY moisture in the concrete or the paint could bond poorly. Place a sheet of plastic somewhere on your empty pool floor overnight. If in the morning there is moisture under the plastic it isn't dry enough yet. This is a two-part epoxy paint. You mix the two cans well and then paint...quick! It goes on very thick and dries/hardens in under an hour so you have to work fast. If you want to see my whole pool re-furb/paint process complete with pictures using this paint, Google "pool paint refurb complete" and you will see my forum post at the top.

      Not Bad
      Color is nice, some paint gallons were a slightly different tint that is noticable, not so much of a "dark blue" that you would think, more like a tropical blue. The cans are super cheap plastic (careful opening).. I have an in-ground 10 ft deep concrete pool and it took about 8 gallons. Lets hope it lasts 10 years like the last paint job I did with a different brand of paint.

      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.

      "Dark Blue" paint is not really Dark Blue
      I was really hoping to get a dark blue paint for the first time. When I ordered the paint color of "Dark Blue" I was so excited because I've wanted this color for years. Much to my disappointment it's really a very neon blue and not at all what I was expecting. Sure wish they had shown a color sample instead of me trusting the color name.

      Aqua Coat [email protected]@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.

      great stuff
      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.

      One coat is plenty!
      Bought another brand last year and it faded after half a season. This paint looks so nice right now, love it!

    Swimming Pool Paint for a Stain-Free Pool

    Fall in love with your pool again! Swimming pool paint from In The Swim is an inexpensive way to give new life to any concrete swimming pool or fountain. In The Swim pool paints are suitable for bare gunite/shotcrete, marcite/marbleite, whitecoat/plaster, fiberglass pools, and also provides an easy to clean surface for pool fountains and water features, in residential or commercial settings.

    Epoxy Pool Paint

    For the greatest durability and longest life, choose Super Poxy Shield. Epoxy pool paints are the most expensive pool paint, but can last for up to 7-years, and provides a hard ceramic-like finish that holds up to long summers and longer winters with an easy to clean finish. Super Poxy Shield covers up to 150 SF per gallon. Use Epoxy Primer or Gunite Primer when painting a pool or fountain for the first time.

    Water Base Pool Paint

    One of the easiest to apply pool paints and the fastest-to-fill is our Aqua Coat water base paint. Acrylic pool paint has an attractive price and can be applied to wet surfaces, and can also be applied over rubber-based pool paints. Cleans up easily with water, and unaffected by light rain or humidity. Two coats of Aqua Coat acrylic pool paint lasts for 1-2 seasons, and covers up to 300 SF per gallon. 

    Rubber Base Pool Paint

    Once upon a time, rubber was the only choice in pool paint - chlorinated rubber pool paints like our high-quality CRC Pro-Series rubber based paint. Our lowest cost pool coating, CRC rubber base pool paint requires no mixing and rolls on smooth and even. We also offer Envirolon rubber base paint, a low-VOC synthetic rubber pool paint. Two coats of rubber base pool paint lasts for 2-3 seasons, and covers up to 275 SF per gallon. 

    Conversion Pool Paint

    For many years, if you wanted to switch from Rubber to Epoxy pool paint, you had to sandblast the pool to remove all rubber paint. Not any more, thanks to the chemical conversion that takes place when you cover a rubber painted pool with Advance Plus Conversion Coating. Applied as a primer coat over a (prepped and cleaned) rubber-based pool paint, you can then apply a second coat of our one-coat epoxy pool paint, Super Poxy Shield. 

    Whether it’s a complete rehab or just a touch-up, In The Swim’s pool paint and fountain paint selection offers high quality, easy-to-apply underwater paints that are designed to last for years. For care and use questions on our pool paints, primers and prep supplies, consult our pool paint experts via phone or email.

    On each pool paint product page, you can find instructions on pool prep and painting tips, listed on the More Info and FAQ tabs, or check out this In The Swim blog post: How to Paint a Pool in 5 Easy Steps.
