Pool Epoxy: Preparation, Application & Maintenance

Pool Surface Epoxy Preparation

Before diving into the process of applying pool epoxy to a surface, there are certain preparations that need to be made. Not preparing and applying properly can lead to the epoxy peeling or chipping away sooner than you'd want. Here are some of the general preparation steps required before applying pool epoxy.

  1. Power washing the entire pool area, removing any dirt or debris that may interfere with the adhesion.
  2. Acid etching in order to create a rougher surface texture, which allows the epoxy coating to bond more effectively to the surface.
  3. Choose the right epoxy for your surface, which should follow your needs. Consider factors such as durability requirements, color preferences, and your budget.

Applying Epoxy to Swimming Pool

Applying epoxy coating to your swimming pool is great to keep the lifespan of the pool high. Pool epoxy is very durable and are incredibly strong and resistant to stains, chemicals, and abrasions. What this means is that, when applied properly, your pool will look great for years. All with little maintenance required. On top of that, there are often other features, such as finishes and colors, where you can customize the look of your swimming pool.

Pool epoxy, however, can also be quite expensive when compared to other types of coatings. Especially when taking into account the installation process, as well as if any repairs or touchups are needed down the line. Professional assistance may be required, so it is important to factor this into your decision making process.

Tips on Applying Pool Epoxy

  • Make sure the surface is clean and dry before starting the application.
  • Ensure temperatures are within the manufacturer's recommended ranges.
  • Do no mix more than what you are able to spread all at once.
  • Work methodically, so overspray does not occur between sections being coated simultaneously.
  • Use rollers designed specifically for epoxies, if possible, since they tend to not leave behind lint fibers which may affect the adhesion during the curing process.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommended application instructions.

Properly Maintaining Your Epoxy Coated Pool

As previously mentioned, epoxy for a pool is a durable and long-lasting option which gives your pool a sleek and polished look when applied properly. However, in order to ensure its long-lasting capabilities, there are maintenance aspects to consider.

Regularly Clean It

One of the most important aspects when it comes to properly maintaining your epoxy-coated pool is to regularly clean it. This is done by skimming the surface for debris, brushing the walls and floor, and vacuuming the bottom of the pool.

Maintain Proper Chemical Levels

When you maintain the proper chemical levels in your pool, it prevents the growth of algae, which can damage your epoxy coating over a period of time.

Avoid Using Abrasive Cleaners or Tools

If you are working on your pool or cleaning it, it is important to avoid using any abrasive cleaners or tools. These may scratch or damage the epoxy coating.

Invest in a Pool Cover

It is wise to purchase a pool cover for the off-season months. Tis cover protects against exposure from inclement weather conditions and will keep your pool epoxy coating safe.
