    Paint for Pool Ladder Help

    I have an in ground salt water pool and the paint on my ladder flaked off at the end of 2019 - the section underwater only. I first tried Rustoleum because it matched the hammered metal look so well, but that peeled off by fall 2020. In 2021, I tried a Pettit paint from a marine supply store...

    Painted Pool Cooler

    Okay so I might have made a stupid mistake. I built a PVC pool cooler/aerator to try to combat the high temperatures here in Houston. It works pretty well but it was raw PVC so I wanted to spruce it up a bit and painted it with some Rust-Oleum spray paint. None of the area that I painted will...

    Experiences repairing rust and painting a Modpool (shipping container pool) liner?

    I just moved into a house which had an 8'x20' Modpool with a Fastlane Swimjet from Endless Pools installed about 18 months before we purchased it. Unfortunately the bolts holding the window had some rust and upon closer inspection I found some rust spots in the container wall near the window...

    Any tips on prepping this surface for paint?

    Quick backstory: This house was purchased three years ago and the 50 year old pool's surface was in disrepair. We hired a local pool installer company who prepped and painted the surface with this: Ramuc Type EP Epoxy Pool Paint. After our second Michigan winter with this paint job, the paint...

    Epoxy Pool Coating - Chalking Prevention

    Epoxy pool coatings are known to “chalk”. I am think of repainting my pool with epoxy but want to prevent it from chalking. I have seen postings online saying to keep the alkalinity levels at 150ppm and to ensure the calcium level is at least 300 ppm. I have tried this but the epoxy still...

    Old rough plaster in good shape....

    I had originally posted below in 2012. Not much has changed other than the pool may have only been open 1 year or so since I posted. The photos attached are from 2013. As you can see the pool stained a bit between when I acid washed in 2010 and the photos in 2013. Apparently I didn't care...
