    Best Paint For Pool Coping

    Hey folks,

    The coping around IG Vinyl pool is starting to show the metal through the paint, so it's time for a new paint job.

    I thought I would clean it with a degreaser of some kind and scrub it with some steel wool. Then I would use some white appliance paint from a spray can to paint it. If there is a primer for appliances, I would use that as well.

    Is this what you guys would recommend? If not, what would be the recommended method for painting the pool coping?

    Thanks!

    I know they make special coping paint that I got through my distributor last year. This is the only one I could find online: http://www.waterwarehouse.com/poolsuppl ... -3569.html

    hope that helps, its pretty expensive. I think appliance paint will work pretty well though

    Thanks for the link! I actually bought some of the appliance paint while I was in Lowes since it was only $5 a can. I'll test it out in a small area. If for any reason it doesn't seem like it will work well, I'll pick up some of that coping paint!

    I'll post back here with the results for others in the future.

    I need to paint my coping, too. It would sure be easier with a brush-on paint. I won't do it this year because I have so many other pool issues to address. What sort of preparation should be done before painting?
