Weel it looks like our swimming season is over in Melbourne, Australia and the plan is to renovate our pool before next Summer. Part of these plans are to add some lights to the pool walls, cover the old marblesheen with Epotec epoxy paint, replace the waterline tiles and coping and possibly add more plumbing such as additional return jets and secondary suction point.
The question to start with is are these reasonable things to be able to add? I imagine you can chase out the path for pipes/conduits then with an epoxy grout reseal them into the wall, paint over with the Epotec and have a waterproof renovation but is this a real expectation?
Also, what are the opinions on epoxy coatings? Epotec have a website: http://poolpaint.com.au/
