Paint

    

What you need to know

Our technicians are specially trained for this kind of work. They can advise you on the best choice of paint, which depends on your pool or spa and your environment.  We are used to working with the wide variety of pools and paints on the market.

If you wish to apply a new coat of paint on top of pre-existing paint, you need to use the same type of paint.  Of course, if the existing paint is removed with Aquablast or Sandblast, we can start again with a new type of paint.  Paint is ideal for surfaces made of concrete, fibreglass or metal. 

For best results, stripping the surface to bare concrete permits better paint longevity.  In this case, we suggest using Epoxy paint for increased durability and longevity.

For all kinds of paint, correct preparation of the surface will be done to optimize the results:

  • First, high pressure cleaning will be performed. 
  • The next step is cleaning with hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid). This removes calcium deposits and thoroughly cleans the walls of the pool.
  • The pool is then rinsed to remove all traces of hydrochloric acid.
  • Finally, cleaning with a degreaser and another good rinse. 

Not until all the previous steps have been followed can pool paint be applied.  Manufacturers of pool paint suggest the application of two coats of paint.  In order to allow the different components of the paint to polymerise, refilling the pool must wait for a minimum of one week (depending on the products) after application of the paint.
