Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by johnson GREAT POOL PAINT IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING
great product to paint a pool if you know what you are doing. I did not. So if you are new at painting pools proceed with caution. Be very very organized and have everything in place. And it might work for you. I wasn't organized enough and had no ideal what i was getting into.
the good...its a quality paint...and if you move quickly it rolls on very well...if you know what you are doing..you can paint the first coat in 3-4 hour with a roller...looks very nice when you are done...very well packaged boxes for the cans...very strudy containers....if you did everything right..this stuff should last a long time...good service from ups but did take them 1 1/2 weeks to get to me..
the bad...dries very fast....is very sticky when it drys a little...so you can't step back on it....i was right at the max temp of 85 degrees but inside the pool add an extra 5-15 degrees down there....drips a lot so you have to smooth out those drips or they harden very quickly into a hard drip shape......doesn't like direct sun light...nor heat of the day...can't paint if temp is over 85 degrees...but inside the bottom of the pool...it get hot down there.....doesn't like any moisture on it...doesn't like morning painting if you get any kind of morning dew in your area......in other words water/moisture is the enemy of this stuff......also your plaster must be very very dry to paint on...and no rain...must set up plastic everywhere in your work area...because drips mixing it get all over the place...the cans come non-mixed..so a lot of the hardener is at the bottom of the can...so you have to stir the one gallon to mix it up before you pour it into a larger container...and that hardener at the bottom of the 1 gallon can doesn't want to move...you have to mix it to death before it will leave the bottom of that can..... also one gallon of paint doesn't cover a lot...i got 6 cans and it wasn't enough to paint my pool...had to thin it out...with paint thinner...also you must put two coats on it....and 2nd coat has to be 24 hours later but no later than 72 hours.....use thinner on the first coat...16 ozs per gallon then straight paint on the 2nd coat...i couldn't do this...had to thin out the 2nd coat because 6 gallons wasn't enough to paint my 14x28 pool...3 feet at the shallow end and 9 foot at the deep end.... and it took them 1 and half weeks to get it in the mail by the ups guy....my pool is a 25,000 gallon pool...wanted to paint my small spa too but didn't have enough paint....might be more efficient with a sprayer...also don't use old brushes because some of the old latex paint from prior paint brush use got mixed in a little...i had little streaks of blue on the pool walls from the old latex paint............also when this stuff dries...forget cleaning the rollers and brushes because it won't come off...also research the rollers to use...one type of roller didn't work that well for me...bought from home depot...
the ugly...if you can get a hold of the rubberized chlorinated pool paint from the insl-x company its a better product then this synthetic rubber pool paint....if you are prepared and organized you can do this......have plastic everywhere...because i didn't and once this stuffs gets on the deck its very hard to remove...so have plastic from your work area to the pool area...move very quickly on painting with this stuff....also i had to do this from 10:00am to 2:00pm...because i get wind in the afternoon and the wind brings dirt......and i get morning dew in the morning...and this product doesn't like any moisture when you paint it...none...also bugs were driving me crazy...they were crash landing on this sticky paint..so i had to pick them up and repaint that area...also this paint does not like direct sun light...but not sure how i would paint it....because it doesn't like morning dew...also the sticky paint attracts bugs and dirt...so you have to move quickly...also you have to wait 7 days before filling...if it rains....add an extra day to it...also if it puddles up...get it out and start counting days again before filling....i can see why the internet is filled with horror stories on these pool paints fading crumbling cracking changing color,chalking and bubbling not too long after people fill them with water.....if i can get 2-3 years out of this...i will be happy...next time i going to get the chlorinated rubber paint they sell...its a better product...then this synthetic product...but this will do for now...also the white color is beautiful on the pool....also read up on how to use chlorine with this pool paint...these pool paints don't like chlorine or direct sunlight..so you might want to add a cover for it during the hot part of the day...also the 7 day waiting period has to be 70 degrees and up to count as one day...so if you get some cooler days in there...add some extra days...also it thickens up very quickly...you have to keep mixing it all the time if its warm...even though i had a 16oz of paint thinner to 1 gallon of paint ratio in there...it still thicken very quickly....

Painted the bottom of a fifty year old cement swimming pool, coverage was about two hundred square feet per gallon, surface was rough, depending on surface and how long ago it was painted, you will want to adjust per gallon coverage. Use brushes and rollers that are disposable, it is impossible to clean them after using this rubber based paint.

I decided to step way out of the box! My chimney was leaking and in need of being repointed( fixing mortar joints). The mortar was repaired where it was falling out and rather than doing the entire chimney, I decided to paint/seal it with this product. The chimney is constructed of old style Charleston red brick. LOTS of nooks and cranies. Due to this, the stated coverage fell short. I applied 2 coats as per instructions 3 months ago and NO more water in the fireplace. It is still holding its white color as well. I have gas logs in the fireplace and feel that the heat they produce shouldn't be a problem. Not sure how it would stand up to a true wood burning fireplace.

The paint was exactly as advertised. Be sure to follow directions exactly; needs quite a bit of mixing. It was easy to apply with a roller, coverage was exactly as noted. So far, pool looks great!

Went on easy-peasey. One gallon covered a 3 tiered fountain with 4" apron as well as the concrete frog on top and had some left over for a couple of other frogs. Did buy a 2nd gallon to paint my 8' X 10' pond. Still have paint left over for minor jobs around the pond and fountain.
