Well, your pool is excavated, a high-quality waterproofing is done and it is ready for paint to be applied to the pool. Let's talk now about how and how to treat the pool, made of concrete or metal.

When selecting, it is necessary to pay close attention to the characteristics and composition of the paint based on latex components. Because it will constantly come in contact with water, there will be temperature changes, be exposed to ultraviolet rays, chemical detergents, and do not break the adhesion to the base and do not lose the original color.

The pool is best painted with rubber paint

The rubber compound used for painting the reservoir has remarkable qualities in operation. In the texture it looks more like a mastic, and after hardening a rubber elastic film is created on the base of the pool.

Characteristics and properties of the composition

  • excellent adhesion quality( adhesiveness) and waterproofing, perfectly covers the different in size and materials used in the production of pools( concrete, metal);
  • is resistant to temperature changes( it is not afraid of strong frosts and high heat) and atmospheric influences, to any mechanical influences and ultraviolet radiation;
  • composition with rubber very quickly hardens, within one to two hours;
  • is simple to use, you just need to have a brush or roller, recently you have a paint tank;
  • surface is not slippery, reduced trauma;
  • long service life( 8-10 years);
  • the paint for pools rubber does not contain in structure of dangerous substances, completely safe, does not cause allergic reactions, provides protection against occurrence of fungi and a mold;
  • , when dried, acquires the properties of flexibility and extensibility, has a pleasant and velvety texture.

In the production of rubber based paints, manufacturers use the following ingredients: five percent water( solvent), acrylate rubber, imparting strength and elasticity properties, a plasticizer for film formation( coalescence), antifreeze( frost resistance), preservativesgives rise to fungus and mold), various additional substances( fillers, coloring pigments).

Application of latex paint

  1. When laying chlorinated rubber paint, the metal surface must be cleaned of rust and grease, the concrete base should be primed if the surface has been previously painted with alkyd or oil paint, washed with sodium or sodium phosphate.
  2. Carry out a test coat with a rubber compound to determine the density, color and duration of drying.
  3. Composition with rubber is applied to the substrate in several thin layers, making intervals of a couple of hours, to increase wear resistance.

Chlorinated rubber paint for swimming pools is considered the most common for painting the surfaces of swimming pools and artificial ponds, is produced in a large color scheme, and also has a low cost.

However, if you decide to paint your pool with elastomer-based paint, you need to carefully select the dyeing rubber compound, lead the pond into the proper kind, carefully study the instructions for use.

Chlorine rubber paint is very popular in price-quality ratio

If you choose the right materials, spend a little of your time and apply a little effort, you will get an absolutely transformed pool without spending a lot of money. To do this you will need such materials and tools - paint with rubber, paint containers, large size roller( wide), brushes, protective gloves and glasses, cleaner, scrapers, metal brush, 3 sodium phosphate.

Technology of coloring concrete basin

  1. Buy chlorinated rubber paint in the building materials store.
  2. From the pond, remove water, various debris and pollution.
  3. Strip the concrete surface with a metal brush and scraper from the old paint, remove all dust, rinse the entire pool surface with 50% acidic composition, rinse with clean water.
  4. To neutralize the acid composition, treat the pool with a 3-sodium-phosphate solution, degrease the surface, rinse again with clean water.
  5. Scratch all defects( cracks, holes) with cement mortar.
  6. Be sure to allow the entire surface to dry out.
  7. Lay the elastomer-based paint with a wide roller, starting from the deepest point, rising to the top, paint the hard-to-reach places( valves, lamp, drain) with a brush.
  8. The paint with rubber should dry out within the time specified in the manufacturer's instructions, since it is necessary for reliable and strong fixation( about 3-5 days).
  9. Fill your new pool with water, and also change the settings for filtering for service.

Additional recommendations:

  • always mix the coloring compound thoroughly before use;
  • do not work when very hot, cold or high humidity( surface bonding may occur);
  • composition superimpose the thinnest layer, so that no bubbles appear;
  • , when working with an acidic detergent mixture, always wear protective goggles and gloves.

Paint for coloring pools with elastomer content is the optimal and ideal choice. You no longer need to remodel your pond every few years, because such material has durability and reliability. And there's no need to worry that your pool will let in water.
