How to Choose The Right Pool Paint

Paint Online offers three premium PoolKote products, Poolkote Two Pack Epoxy, Chlorinated Rubber, & Rapid Dry Two Pack Polyaspartic. All three products have unique features and usecasses,

To find out what coating your pool currently has, rub a small area of the pool surface with Acetone, if the coating starts to react and break down becoming sticky and soft, it is most likely to have a Chlorinated Rubber coating and can be recoated with PoolKote Chlorinated Rubber. However, if the surface remains unaffected, then it most likely has an epoxy coating and you can use PoolKote Two Pack Epoxy.

If your pool has been previously painted with epoxy or chlorinated rubber, only the same coating can be applied over it. Unless you sandblast or grind the entire surface to remove the existing coatings, then you can choose either option. Please see below product features for each PoolKote coating.
