    How to repaint?

    I am new on here and I need to repaint the concrete bottom of the pool (the old paint is flaking off)
    The pool is app. 40x28 concrete bottom with fiberglass sides. Kidney shaped.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

    I have done some research and found that epoxy will last the longest and zeron by olympic only requires one coat.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Be sure to follow the directions for the paint! There are requirements for pool paint that MUST be followed - or you'll have peeling paint within a couple of years

    I wish you well with this project and if I can help, please feel free to call on me

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
