    Spray painting the Liquidator tank

    A few approaches were suggested here last here about how to render the tank wall more opaque in order to minimize chlorine degradation by light.
    Some reported using spray paint. I wonder which paint brand and color sticks and has a good opacity.
    This is my ticket for Heaven (when all's working..) :
    22k Gal gunite IGP, 38 SF Anthony DE filter, 1 HP Hayward Super Pump
    380k BTU Raypak Natural Gas Heater (Model RP405A) and solar cover
    8 gal Liquidator w/ 12% bleach, Dolphin Diagnostic Advantage robotic cleaner. 3800 ppm salt, 50 ppm borates.

    Krylon Fusion is a great paint for that situation. The color shouldn't matter very much.

    Any color of the paint will be opaque so will block the UV, but white will reflect the best so will keep the tank the coolest.

    I used an Epoxy Appliance white. It holds up really well, just takes a long time to dry. I left a masked off strip down the side so I could see the level.
