I bought a house with an inground pool last november, and I am a first time pool owner.
According to public record, the pool was built in 1969. I have no records indicating what, if any, maintenance or repairs have been done to the pool. The sides and bottom of the pool appear to have peeling paint. A pic of the problem is attached.
My questions are as follows:
Is it safe to complete drain the pool and repaint it?
Do you sand/scrape off loose paint before doing this?
Is there any brand/type of paint anyone would recommend?
How can I tell if the pool is plaster, gunite, or concrete?
I have another problem that I will be posting in another topic, so please forgive the duplicate information. I just figured it would be less confusing that way.
