Water protection for concrete and fiberglass swimming pools
Epotec is an ultimate concrete swimming pool coating Sydney for waterproofing. A concrete swimming pool has steel reinforcements in its shell. Water penetration of the surface of the concrete inner walls is prevented by the epotec coating. This is essential because pool water can cause concrete cancer or corrosion of the steel reinforcements which damages the shell of the swimming pool. Epotec concrete swimming pool coating Sydney is resistant against both liquid and vapour thereby providing an impregnable shield for the concrete surface against pool water.
Epotec is also a waterproof epoxy paint for fiberglass swimming pools. The fiberglass shell of a fiberglass swimming pool needs protection against water to prevent rotting of the fiberglass strands and the consequent collapse of the shell. The inner finish of the fiberglass swimming pool called gel coat fulfills the waterproofing function. However, damage to the gel coat due to algae growth, osmosis spots and other causes render it ineffective against water. In such cases, epotec coating can be applied after fiberglass pool repair to replace the gel coat.
Fiberglass lined concrete swimming pools along with pebblecrete and marble sheen swimming pools can also be upgraded with epotec.
Pool waterproofing paints are being widely preferred by people. Epotec is a much better choice than other kinds of paints such as chlorinated rubber pool paints.
