Why Does a Pool Need to be Painted regularly?
1) Prevent Leaks
A swimming pool leak can be difficult to trace, and extremely damaging, and most modern pools are designed to minimize the possibility of leaks. However, without the right kind of swimming pool paint to protect the fiberglass structure itself, it is all too easy for the strong chlorine to cause damage and create leaks.
2) Slows Bacteria Buildup
Left to its own devices, a home swimming pool would quickly become a haven for bacteria, algae, and microorganisms, taking on the appearance of a garden pond. This can create a less sanitary swimming environment for those using the pool and can cause the pool itself to become damaged over time.
This is one of the main reasons why it is essential to regularly chlorinate pool water. However, choosing the correct, pool-safe paint is also an important part of reducing and slowing bacterial build-up, while still being safe for daily use and regular pool cleaning. This is important for painted surfaces found both above and below the water line and is a vital part of ongoing pool maintenance.
3) Improves Safety
Keeping friends and family safe in the swimming pool comes first in any consideration of maintenance and repairs. Adding a non-slip coat of paint to areas surrounding the pool is also an excellent way to keep everyone safe and prevent damage in both the short and long term.
Types of Pool Paint
Swimming pool paint has unique properties that allow it to withstand the sun, chlorine, and water. Epoxy paint, enamel paint, and acrylic paint are the three most common forms of paint used.
Pool Enamel and Acrylic Paint
Enamel refers to a paint that has a shiny, glossy, and decorative topcoat and is intended to give a long-lasting, hardened finish. Enamel paints were initially oil-based, although water-based equivalents are now available. Original enamel paint formulations featured a modified polyester type known as alkyds, which have a viscosity comparable to oil paints. This gives the coating its harder finish once set. That is what makes this type of paint exceptionally durable. Enamel paints are popular for pools due to their longevity and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This type of paint will have a lifespan of about 1-4 years.
Pool Epoxy Paint
Epoxy coatings contain chemical resins that generate durable coatings that withstand abrasions, solvents, and chemicals and stick effectively to a variety of surfaces. It may be used on pools with a variety of surfaces, including fiberglass and concrete because it is a solvent-based paint. However, it works best on raw surfaces or areas that have previously been treated with epoxy pool paint. The paint curing process is significantly more time-consuming, taking up to a week for outdoor pools and two weeks for indoor pools. This type of paint will have a much longer lifespan, lasting about 6-8 years, but it is more expensive.
Furthermore, epoxy paint is used where there are rough surfaces to fill, as it self-levels. While acrylic paint doesn’t offer this feature.
