The surface of pool paint in and around your swimming pool can acquire leaks, cracks or an overall rough feeling to it. As your swimming pool ages, leaks can become algae stains, cracks can lead to surface blisters and rough surfaces can be painful to touch. There is a solution to all of this, and you can do it yourself. With popular pool paint like Smart Seal® Deck and Pool Paint, your pool surfaces will soon be as good as new.
In many cases, you should use a pool paint primer prior to sealing your swimming pool’s surface to fill in all the gaps. Pool primers can be applied in one day’s time, especially if you have help. Your pool paint can usually be applied the very next day!
Make sure your pool surface is clean before applying pool paint. All loose pool paint should be scraped off and removed. Using pool paint over a dirty surface is the primary reason why pool surfaces blister and bubble up.
After the pool surface is ready, you should use a 9” roller brush with a ½” nap that has a solvent resistant core. Begin applying pool paint at the deep end of the swimming pool and walk towards the shallow end.
Tip: On pool steps and shallow areas, spreading some sand on the pool paint coat before it dries will make the area textured and slip-resistant.
Smart Seal® Aqua Seal Acrylic Enamel pool paint is a popular choice. It’s water-based and can be applied to a damp pool surface. It’s also popular for the fast four-hour drying time. In most cases, the swimming pool will be ready to fill again after two fast coats and a short 48 hours.
Applying pool paint yourself can save you time and money. Resurfacing your swimming pool will fix any aging problems and get your pool looking brand new again.
