Epoxy Pool Coating

Super Epoxy is a revolutionary epoxy pool coating that is used to refinish swimming pools without the need for costly fiberglass matting or re-plastering. Our epoxy pool repair system works on all concrete pools and is available as a DIY solution to homeowners who  feel comfortable repairing their own pool.

Super Epoxy uses a two part bonding agent that creates a water tight membrane that can not be broken. Our product is guaranteed to never flake or chip the way that most pool paints will over time. The difference is in the cross linking polymers that our two part epoxy bring together to form one chemical bond. Super epoxy is also an elastomeric system. This means that our product is flexible like a rubber and not rigid like a pool paint.

We challenge you to compare our product to low-cost, low-quality paints as well as high-cost professional plaster resurfacing and fiberglass systems. You will find that our pricing and our results can not be beat.

Epoxy Pool Paints

Question: What are Epoxy Pool Paints?

Answer: Epoxy Pool Paints are really “pool paints” by loose definition

Many companies claim that their paint is an epoxy because it has a rubber base to it but these epoxy pool paints are not really true epoxies. SEE BELOW>>>>

According to Wikipedia:
Epoxy, also known as polyepoxide, is a thermosetting polymer formed from reaction of an epoxide “resin” with polyamine “hardener“. Epoxy has a wide range of applications, including fiber-reinforced plastic materials and general purpose adhesives. 

So essentially, a true epoxy is a two part system that uses a bonding agent and a hardener. If a “so-called” Epoxy Pool Paint is being sold without a bond coat then it is nothing more than a rubber based paint. rubber paints are not a bad option for swimming pool resurfacing especially if you are on a budget BUT they are no replacement for a true resin and bond coat system like Super Epoxy.

Swimming Pool Epoxies

Swimming Pool Epoxies is a term that is thrown around without much understanding of what it actually means. There are a lot of swimming pool epoxy coatings but very few of them are actual epoxies rather than paints.

Swimming Pool Epoxies
Swimming pool epoxies are NOT PAINT. Epoxies are actual a resin that uses a two part bonding agent to create a permanent bond. A true swimming pool epoxy system does not contain fillers like sand or other materials. For this reason swimming pool epoxies will always cost considerably more than pool paints but they will have a lifespan 4-5 times greater than swimming pool paint.

Swimming Pool Paint 
Swimming pool paint is what it says it is…paint! It is the same paint used to coat the exterior of your house. Pool paints come in water or rubber based formulas. Water-based pool paints have a VERY short lifespan of 1-2 years. Rubber-based paints have a slightly higher lifespan of 2-3 years but effectively cost double the price of swimming pool paints. Pool paints of all kinds contain fillers and other debris to keep costs down. These fillers cause the surface to break down due to chemical reactions from the chlorine and other chemicals in the water.

DIY Plaster Pool Resurfacing

Is there a DIY Plaster Pool Resurfacing Product?

This is a question we get all the time. If you Google “DIY Plaster Pool Resurfacing” you will find a lot of Q&A about this topic. To date there is no official DIY Plaster System that you can purchase. Most plaster resurfacing jobs are performed by a licensed pool contractor and cost many thousands of dollars. You do however have a few DIY options for resurfacing your old plaster pool with something OTHER THAN PLASTER.

DIY Plaster Pool Resurfacing Options

  1. Fiberglass: Fiberglass is a nice option for resurfacing a pool and it will last quite a while if done correctly HOWEVER…It doesn’t make a very good DIY solution. It is a very serious undertaking that includes: HAZMAT suits, Respirators, grinders, mixers and a lot of very expensive materials. If you are thinking about Fiberglass think about hiring a contractor to install it.
  1. Paint: Paint is the oldest form of pool resurfacing. Paint is dirt cheap and can hide a lot of “sins”. The only problem is that paint will need to be re-applied every 1-2 years. Unless you feel like draining your pool each year this really is not a good DIY pool resurfacing solution. Paint is also more of a “cover-up” than an actual repair of the pool’s surface.
  1. Epoxy: Epoxy pool systems like Super Epoxy have ease of use of a paint but can actually fix structural problems the way a fiberglass solution does. You don’t need a lot of knowledge to install an epoxy plaster pool resurfacing system as a DIY. You really only need to know the techniques used in painting a room. Epoxy has a very good lifespan when used correctly. Be sure you buy a quality epoxy that is 100% solids containing no sand or fillers.

We would suggest an epoxy solution such as Super Epoxy Pool Coating. Super Epoxy will not blister or flake like plaster or gunite and can be easily installed as a DIY for thousands less than a plaster or gunite resurfacing.

Plaster Pool Coatings

Plaster Pool Coatings can take many different forms. Traditional plaster pool resurfacing involved removing the old plaster coating and replacing it with new plaster. This type of  plaster pool coating must be done by a contractor or at least someone with the tools and resources to get the job done. This is also the most costly option for plaster pool coatings and it only has an expected life of 5-7 years.

Super Epoxy is a revolutionary plaster pool coating that uses a two part epoxy system. Our plaster pool coating is actually offered to the homeowner as a DIY solution. Anyone who has ever uses a paint roller will know how to apply our Super Epoxy plaster pool coating.

Plaster swimming pool resurfacing involves the removal of your old pool interior and resurfacing it with a new interior coating such as plaster, fiberglass or epoxy. There are many options currently on the market for plaster swimming pool resurfacing but most are not compatible as a DIY solution.

DIY Plaster Pool Resurfacing

  • Submergable pumps with intake and output hoses
  • Large plaster mixer
  • Large wheelbarrow
  • Jackhammers (with flat edges or points) and/or picks
  • Different sized finishing trowels, for corners and steps
  • Muriatic acid

Epoxy Pool Paint

Super Epoxy Swimming Pool Coating is often confused with epoxy pool paint. Epoxy pool paints are no the same as the Super Epoxy product. We have created this article to help clarify the differences between the products.

Epoxy Pool Paint – Is not 100% solids
What this means is that epoxy pool paints contain fillers making them less expensive and less effective. Super Epoxy is a 100% solids product containing no fillers intended to stretch the material farther than it should go.

Epoxy Pool Paint – Is Still Just Paint
Epoxy Pool Paints are just paint and must be re-applied to your pool frequently to maintain appearances. Super Epoxy is classified as an epoxy and not a paint. Our product, when combined together creates a chemical reaction thus creating an unbreakable bond.

Epoxy Pool Paint – Is Not Flexible
Epoxy Pool Paint is just paint. It will chip off and flake over time. Super Epoxy is actually a flexible product that can take the shape of your pool. Super Epoxy will not flake blister or chaulk.

When selecting an epoxy pool paint select Super Epoxy instead
