There are a number of notable advantages of pool painting, such as making it look beautiful, longer lasting, easy to clean and seamless.
Gel coat is the number one material we use on residential fiberglass pools (especially after any kind of repair). It can be applied over raw fiberglass, and over your original gel coat. Gel coat will not adhere to any other materials. Gel coat is what fiberglass pools are manufactured with when new, and the coating can stand up to chlorine or salt for up to 20 years before needing repaired or re-gel-coated. We have the same equipment used for applying this coating as the pool manufacturer that built your pool new originally. This portable equipment allows us to use a state of the art machine to spray on the gel allowing an even coating, consistent thickness and ability to produce an eye appealing gloss throughout the pool. This also protects fiberglass pools by building gel coat up to the thickness of a U.S. nickel, just as it was originally manufactured. This is a cost efficient coating for fiberglass pools that also offers a piece of mind and years of service to come and superior protection.
Paint can provide you with a more flawless finish than tile.
Aside from that, it frees you from tile joints getting dirty and tiles falling off. When you feel that your pool needs to be repainted to prepare it for the next summer where it will surely be used by a lot of people, it is best to call the professionals at Solid Water Slide Repair, who have vast knowledge on how repainting is correctly and efficiently done.
Taking the help of experts and considering their recommendations can be a great way for you to achieve your pool painting project in a way that you won’t worry about the cost. There are basically three types of paintings for swimming pools, namely acrylic, epoxy and rubber-based.
When it comes to pool painting, some experts would recommend epoxy painting, as it is more durable, longer lasting and can withstand chemical treatments and UV rays. Such paint can last about 7 to 10 years. This type of paint is known as Marine Paint and is divided into two parts, the hardener and resin. With time, the epoxy film tends to be chalky. The cost every year of epoxy paint is much lower than chlorinated rubber. It comes in extensive an color range and requires sanding for recoating. Its surface is also hard and is virtually solvent free. When slightly exposed to UV rays, it turns yellow.
Some also use chlorinated rubber for pool painting, since it is not as expensive as epoxy paint.
It is also easy to apply and is available in different colors. But epoxy paint tends to be longer lasting than chlorinated rubber, which is said to last for three to five years. But it is highly resistant to acids, salts and alkali. It dries faster as well and has excellent recoat ability. Its water immersion resistance property makes it one of the most recommended paints for pools.
It is not for use on whirlpools or spas; instead, it is designed for commercial use where maintenance of swimming pool is done on a regular basis. It is more expensive, but the advantage it offers in easy application makes it stand out for pool painting. When exposed to UV rays, it turns white.
The last type of painting is acrylic coating that could be used on any surface type. It is basically easy to apply and can clean up with water. It is suitable for commercial applications that are usually repainted on a regular basis. This is known to last for two to three years. Compared to epoxy paint, acrylic paint does not require hardeners. In fact, homeowners can apply this more easily because the fumes are not extremely strong as oil-based paints.
