    Zinsser Pool Paint

    I'm a new owner of an old pool and am considering repainting. Here's a link to one of the paints I'm considering, can anyone tell me if this is an appropriate for an old concrete with stainless panels on the top, numerous past repairs in the concrete, that is currently covered with epoxy paint? I really appreciate the help!

    Well, regardless of the link, it will be difficult to get a long lasting job worth much using ANY kind of paint. Especially over old paint, you just can't expect much (maybe a year or two) of a long term fix.

    Have you considered converting to a vinyl liner pool? May be another option to consider.

    I say no. Have owned my 50-yr-old concrete pool with laminated porcelain steel sides for 37 years--and yeah--paint don't last. Can definitely say no to Rumac rubber-base, Ultra-Poly One Coat, and Ultra-Guard. Only luck I've had is using Olympic's Zeron and Gunzite primer. But you're gonna have to grind off the previous paint, which trust me, is a real pain. I just spent 105 hours this summer grinding off bad paint. Trouble with Zeron is the prep work, it is very tedious. But good luck in what you try. Don't know anything about the paints you listed, but if they're not 2-part epoxy paints, they just won't last long.
