Q. I have an in ground concrete pool.what kind of paint can i use inside the pool
and how often will it need to be repainted?
A. The proper way to paint a concrete pool is to blast any existing finish off, down to the bare concrete, and apply a chlorinated rubber or
epoxy coating designed for swimming pools, strictly following the manufacturer’s directions. It's difficult to say how often it will need to be re-painted, but if prepared, applied and allowed to cure properly you should get several years (3-5) service before repainting......A Glassflake
lining would last 8-10 years.
Q.I painted my pool with F...ex/C..ex mixture but after about one week it started peeling of, it is a marbelite pool. I am sure that my preparations were very good. Can you please help? What can I do and what product must I use to
resolve my problem?
A.It would be best to remove all the new lining you have put on and get back to marbelite it obviously did not bond properly, then sandpaper the marbelite and apply a suitable pool paint.
