We purchased a home 4.5 yrs ago with an 33,000 pool. We believe they painted the pool just prior to putting it on the market. We feel the paint is failing and needs to be redone. We are DIY'ers and realize that we can paint, but not replaster. The cost to sandblast and replaster is just too much, adding support to repainting.
After researching just until the point our eyes bleed, we understand that we will need to Tsp, acid wash, Tsp, prime and paint. Looks like we will be using Super Poxy Shield from In The Swim. The process seems a few nerves past overwhelming, but the cheapskates in us keep us moving forward. Any advice?
Also while we have the pool drained it seems like a good time to relocate the filter and pump to outside our workshop as the chlorine is destroying our tools. So while we are moving things around we are thinking of adding a SWG. We are looking at the Aqua Rite from Hayward. We are hoping to make maintenance easier and less costly. Mustard algae has been a problem for us in the spring and fall when we aren't in the pool as much. Any advise? Do we need to worry about corrosion to our metal steps?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
