PAINT

Have your pool painted or come buy your paint in the store

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.

We use paints that are either rubber based or synthetic resin based: acrylic, epoxy or rubber.  These paints are waterproof and are slightly elastic which extends their life span and their ability to resist freeze-thaw cycles. If we wish to add a new coat of paint on top of old paint it is important to know what kind of paint is already on the structure.  The same sort of paint must be used for the new coat.  If not, the new coat of paint will not adhere to the layer of paint below.  In the case of not knowing what type of paint is already on the pool, we recommend using acrylic which is the most multipurpose paint.  

It is not always required but generally recommended to remove the pre-existing paint and start with a bare surface.  We can use Aquablast to remove pre-existing paint and start from bare concrete.  If the paint is in good condition and only needs to be refreshed, a light sanding is required to insure that the new paint will properly adhere to the painted surface.  .

A few conditions have to be respected before the painting phase can begin.  It is necessary to perform a deep cleaning in order to remove living organisms (algae, moss, etc.) This is performed in three steps:

  • First, high pressure cleaning will be performed.  
  • Then cleaning with an all-in-one solution which degreases and acidifies the structure.  This removes calcium deposits and deep cleans the bottom and walls of the pool. 
  • Finally a rinse to remove any residual chemical deposits.

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.
