Surface Preparation for Re-Coating
Surface must always be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting. Failure to do so will lead to eventually blistering and/or peeling. Previously painted surfaces should be power washed to remove loose paint or excessive chalking. Scrub the entire pool with a TSP (tri-sodium phosphate)solution to remove all dirt, oils, loose or peeling paint, and chalk. All surfaces should then be acid etched with a 15-20% solution of MURIATIC ACIDto achieve a medium grade sandpaper finish on bare concrete or plaster and to remove mineral deposits on previously painted chlorinated rubber surfaces. Neutralize/rinse with TSP. Before applying the paint, the pool must be completely dry.
