We had our pool finished in Sept of 07. We swam in it until late Oct then closed it with a solid safety cover. We are planning to open it late March and seal the concrete. We have a 28x43x18 True L with radius corners. We added lots of extra concrete. There is 12 feet of concrete along the short L side, the 28 ft part, 4 feet of concrete down the back along the 43 ft part, and 10 along the 18 ft part with the diving board, but then we filled the whole "L" part in so it is a rectangular concrete pad with radius corners also. I don't even know how much we have on that side, I am guessing 20 feet or so.
We thought to use the sealer you get a Lowes. Is that acceptable? Will it be slick after we do it when it gets wet? With 6 kids it will be wet and I don't want any cracked heads!! What is the easiest way to get it down? We thought about using paint rollers. Will that work? Does it go a long ways or am I looking at getting gallons upon gallons of this stuff?
I will try at attach a picture so you can see what I am talking about. I am not sure I explained it very well.
