About 6 years ago we painted our inground swimming pool with an epoxy fiberglass resin. Last summer when we had people swimming in it they complained of "itchy bottoms and legs". Especially children but I also got to experience this lovely pool itch. Apparently, the paint has broken down and allowed the fiberglass fiber to stick up out of the paint, effectively "stabbing" anyone who sits on the surface. So now the question is this: aside from sanblasting and replastering (which is not in the budget right now) is there any other solution to this problem? Would it be possible to paint over the epoxy with marine paint and cover the fibers? Has anyone else out there experienced this problem before? We live in a VERY hot, Very dry climate (las Vegas) but it also gets cold in the winter, sometimes cold enough to cause the water to ice over a little bit in the winter. I'd greatly appreciate anyone's help in this situation.
