    Patching and painting

    I have a concrete pool that has a BAD paint chipping problem as well as a few chunks of concrete missing. The easist thing to do is hire a professional BUT the cost is too much. I would not mind patching and painting myself. Here are my questions......

    How do I patch the missing chunks of cement? They are not HUGE. About the size of a quarter in about 4 spots. What can be used instead of cement? (Why buy a 50 pound bag for 4 ounces of work!)......

    What paint do I need?

    Can I paint over the current paint?

    Any recommendations or ideas?

    Thanks!

    There's cement in a tube, try it. About painting, are you going to paint the whole pool deck or, just a few spots?

    You can find more than one cement patching products at home depot. One I particularly like is made for setting (anchoring) hand rails in cement.

    It mixes vey easily and sets up rock hard in about a 5 minutes....virtually waterproof....I think "Anchor" makes it.


    I can't help with paint.

    Re: Patching and painting

    A month or two ago I read a post here, about refinishing a cement pool.
    One of the members here had all the equipment, paint, timeline, cost with pictures & instructions on how he did it himselfe. It was very impressive.
    But I can't find the thread right now or I would post the link.
    Keep on reading this board, going back as far as 2 month & you should find it.
