COLORS: Available in White, Medium Blue, Aqua, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, or Black
COVERAGE: Coverage is approximately 300 square feet per gallon. 2 full coats are strongly recommended for maximum durability and product life. Expect less coverage on bare, rough or sandblasted surfaces.
To figure out the amount of paint you will require: Length of Pool x Width of Pool x 1.7 = square footage x 2 (2 coats) divided by 300 square feet = number of gallons needed
SURFACE PREPARATION: Power wash or hose the surface to remove all loose paint, dirt, oils, grease and suntan lotions. Clean the pool with a mixture of Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) and water, scrubbing the area thoroughly. Next etch the surface with a solution of 50% muriatic acid and 50% water. Then thoroughly clean again with TSP & and flush with plenty of fresh water. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours before beginning application. Glossy surfaces can be power sanded using 80 grit sandpaper if desired. After applying the 1st coat, wait at least 24 hours before applying the 2nd coat. WAIT 5 DAYS AFTER THE FINAL COAT BEFORE FILLING THE POOL WITH WATER. If it should rain at any time during application, allow one extra day of cure time for each day of rain.
SUGGESTED USES: Concrete or plaster pools. DO NOT USE on spas, whirlpools or fiberglass. For those applications see our Epoxy Pool Paints.
FINISH: Glossy. For a more slip resistant finish on area such as the pool steps or diving areas, silica sand can be added to the paint as needed to achieve the desired texture.
