TOP TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE PAINTING YOUR POOL
1. Remember to prepare the surface prior to painting
The most important step to take when painting your pool is to properly prepare the surface. This will result in a much better finish that looks great and lasts long. Fill in any cracks with hydraulic cement and sand back for a smooth finish using abrasive paper or a disc sander with a low grit.
2. Clean and etch the surface
Once the surface of the pool is smooth, ensure it is cleaned well with soap. Pool surfaces contain grime, body oils and fats, that need to be removed prior to paint application. Once the surface is clean, it is recommended you scrub the pool with acid etch such as Nu EcoSafe Concrete Etch.
3. Tape the edges of the pool
It is important to paint the edges of the pool in order to not paint on any tiles, wood or surrounding areas that you do not want to be painted. Even for the most delicate and accurate painters, one unoticeable slip up can be the difference between a professional paint job and an amateur one. We recommend using 48MM Envo Painters Tape
4. Ensure the pool is completely dry prior to painting
This may seem like an obvious step, however you need to ensure that the pool is absolutely completely dry. There should not be any water anywhere as this will cause disruption to the paint. Make sure to check the weather forecast prior and allow at least a few days to apply a couple coats over the space of at least two days.
5. Allow the pool paint to dry as long as possible
If possible, allow up to 10 days for the pool paint to dry prior to adding in pool water and chemicals. If the paint has not adequately dried, it will be disturbed.
