Tiles and rendered finish used for swimming pool waterproofing have many disadvantages. Broken tiles are difficult to replace and leakages appearing in tiles also cannot be plugged easily. It is also difficult to clean and maintain tiled finishing. Rendered finish has a rough surface and can scratch the skins of swimmers. Thus, in order to get the best waterproofing without any of the associated disadvantages, epotec epoxy pool paint is being widely used by people. Epotec paint coating provides a hard wearing but smooth surface which does not scratch the skin. It is also very easy to clean and highly durable. The paint comes in various colours and is aesthetically appealing.
Epotec for concrete swimming pools
Epotec paint is an efficient and convenient waterproofing option for concrete swimming pools. Concrete swimming pools feature steel reinforcements in their structures. In the absence of waterproofing, the inner walls of the swimming pool allow water to penetrate their concrete surface and reach the steel reinforcements. Consequently, the steel reinforcements get corroded leading to collapse of the structure of the swimming pool. Epotec concrete swimming pool coating Sydney prevents water from coming in contact with the concrete mass and invading the steel reinforcements. Epotec concrete swimming pool paint Sydney is both water and vapour proof meaning it withstands both liquid and gaseous water molecules.
Concrete swimming pools with marblesheen and pebblecrete finishing can also be waterproofed using epotec paint. Marblesheen is made using crushed marble chips and white cement while peeblecrete is a mixture of pebbles and cement. Epotec is useful when these finishings are no longer able to provide waterproofing either due to damage or general wear and tear.
Damaged or worn out fiberglass lining in fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools can also be replaced with epotec pool paint for waterproofing.
Epotec for fiberglass swimming pools
Fiberglass swimming pools are widely used in both domestic households as well as commercial establishments. Fiberglass swimming pools are made using fiberglass strands and resin. The shell of a fiberglass swimming pool is a semi transparent structure. The inner surface of the pool has a finish called gel coat. Gel coat is visible underneath the pool and its function is to prevent pool water from reaching the fiberglass shell of the pool. Epotec epoxy paint for fiberglass can be used to upgrade the waterproofing ability of the pool when the gel coat wears out or suffers damage. Osmosis spots, algae growth, black spots and general wear and tear compromise the waterproofing function of the gel coat. Upgrading with epotec prevents water from getting into the fiberglass structure of the pool and causing damage.
However, before resurfacing with epotec, it is necessary to go for fiberglass pool repair. The gel coat must be repaired before applying epotec. The pool may also require other kinds of repairs as determined by the fiberglass pool contractor.
There are many epotec epoxy paint colours for the customers to choose from for their pools. The various colours include chamois, pale gade, gardenia, glacier white, slate grey, etc.
Epotec pool paint is a simple yet effective way of pool waterproofing and avoiding costly repairs necessitated by water damage.
