Protective Coatings for Immersion Surfaces
To maintain the visual appeal and cleanliness of your swimming pool, routine maintenance is required. Beyond adding chemicals to keep the water safe to swim in, pool managers must maintain the finish coating to ensure the pool’s integrity.
Correctly painting swimming pools is not as easy as one might think. The existing coating must be evaluated to ensure compatibility with the new paint to be applied. Proper surface preparation including acid etching and neutralization of chemicals is vital to ensure adhesion. Additionally, moisture vapor transmission testing and expansion joint evaluation is highly recommended before painting. The applied paint must be adequate to handle immersion and chemical resistance. The coating must have adequate cure days prior to being filled with water. These are just some of the concerns involved with a successful pool painting project.
If the existing coating is severely peeling or failing, sandblasting is recommended. Alpine’s team perform lead testing and discuss the procedure with the pool owners prior to completing the project. Our team evaluates expansion joints, coping and the integrity of your concrete or granite pool surface.
