First time using, very happy with the results Review by LM
After so much research, we decided to buy epoxy paint for our pool. After reading the reviews that some people get bubbles when painting in a hot day, we painted at night. I also read on the reviews that its very slippery so we added Anti-Skid Additive for the stairs but I regret not doing it for the whole floor as it is slippery almost fell on the side of my pool. We waited 3 days to have it dry and the fumes are pretty strong so wear a professional mask. Other than that our pool looks like it i replastered it but is just paint. Very happy and save lots of money doing it ourselves.
3rd time using this product love it! Review by Lisa
This will be our 3rd time painting our old gunite pool. We moved here 22 years ago, the pool wasn't new then it was an ugly rough stained white pool. We got the Blue Ice and it looked beautiful. The 2nd time we painted it we sandblasted before painting that time. This time we pressure washed and will prime then paint. If you read the instructions it tells about temps to paint in. FOLLOW those closely, we painted late in the year last time and had to paint at 11:00-12:00 midnight to have the right temps for long enough. Hence doing it now early spring we should be much better off. Can't wait it looks so nice when done, resists algae, looks brand new every time. Great product!!
Pool Paint Zeron Epoxy Review by Kathy
I have a pool that has a fiberglass wall and concrete bottom. My mom hired a man that was suppose to be a pool guy . Ha HA . The joke was on me . I had to sand blast the bottom of the pool with sand and the sides with baking soda. Thank God my Husband is a man of all trades . I has 2 pool companied came out to look at the pool and price the repair process. They both was honest men. The said that the guy my mom hired had totaled my pool . The could put in a new one cheaper than they could fix this one . My pool is called a Tear drop. He said if we did the work ourself we could save it and it was a great pool . Better than the new pools they sale. So we did. Last summer we got paint from doheny 1000.00 worth and we ran out of paint due to the sided sucked up the paint . we worked all summer and went ahead and filled it up 40.000 gallons. we used it for 6 weeks and summer was over . We has a lot of problems. The plumbing leaked and the bottom step leaked . So we shut it down .After winter was over . we drained the pool . cleaned it and repainted again. I ordered 700.00 dollars worth of paint . Had 1 gallon left over even after we painted the slide. It looks great. This paint was awesome. I didn't buy no primer due to the remarks of the primer being to thin and made runs . So I just used the epoxy paint that can be used on fiber glass and concrete. It turned out shiny and we were able to put on several coats and more at steps. No leaks. We also replaced all of the plumbing and replaced all of the seals in the system . Now its all new. and we are finally filling it . almost to the top . My next thing will be the patch for concrete around the pool and the pool walkway paint also . I will let u know if its worth it rather than replacing the concrete around the pool and patio .
Thanks Kathy Madisonville , Tennessee
Looks like problems developed Review by hot rod
every one says bubbles happened doesn't look like its a compatible product to use if you have to rework it or re-due it afterwards several times. Other products have the no use of primer they are about $25 more per gal. but then you don't have to work more or have to buy gallons of primers before final coat. Seems like there are better products out there for close to the same costs
Best price here Review by Laura
I ordered over $800 worth of paint and accessories on Friday, and they were sitting on my front deck when I got home on Tuesday. Free shipping and I didn't have to haul it. The next day I noticed that the paint was on sale so I called, and within minutes, she had processed a credit on my credit card. Doheny's is a winner.
As for the painting, my pool has fiberglass panels on the sides, and poured concrete deep end and bottom. It was painted 8 years ago with Poxolon. For a paint that promised to last 5-7 years, I was certainly satisfied. But I decided to try Zeron this time. The weather did not cooperate, but I found a window with 36 hours rain free and went for it. All of the prep work was done days before. I hired 2 college kids to do the heavy lifting. We couldn't really put the Zeron on as thick as it should be on the fiberglass panels, but did on the concrete. We started around 8:30 in the morning, and finished around 12:30. The first night the temp went below the 50 degree minimum, but not to worry, by the end of the week it was over 90. lol. I left it for 6 days, not knowing which temp to use. It worked fine. The pool looks great, and I'm hoping to get 9 or 10 years out of it.
Tips....plan to throw out EVERYTHING you use on the paint. I used 2 5 gallon buckets (mixed in 3 batches), 2 rollers, 4 roller covers (switched them out 1/2 way through as they were getting gooey), a brush for edging, the drill attachment, the tray in the bucket, a small roller for the steps....they all went in the trash. You can't wash this paint off. We got most off our hands with a scrub. I bought rubber rain boots just for the occasion, and kicked them off in the grass and went barefoot into the house. I'm still finding little spots of blue in the strangest places. On wood (my kitchen cabinets, table...) I found that spraying pledge on it thick, leave it a few minutes, then rub with a microfiber cloth took it off without wrecking the finish for at least a week after the painting.
For the bottom of the pool, we found that pouring paint down and then spreading it with the rollers (using extension poles) worked best. The bottom went very quickly.
I didn't have bubbling, but that could be because it was cool for the first 2 days after painting.
In the end, my 34 year old pool looks pretty darn good. This is a good product. Don't underestimate the time it will take to prep, don't expect the weather to be perfect, and hire some strong backs to help.
