What paint for saltwater concrete pool

lauradcMay 16, 2012

My father is about to paint the pool at our vacation house, and is being somewhat cavalier (i.e. cheap) about which paint to get. He did it all two years ago, and it blistered and peeled off within 2 weeks of it being used.

He has sandblasted off all the old paint, so it will be bare concrete (and he will acid prep). Can anyone recommend a good paint? Does it necessarily need to be 2-part epoxy?

Any experience with Pro Master pool coating 2-part expoxy? Or the Olympic Poxolon 2 or Zenon (neither of which are 2-parts, and seem to fit the bill according to manufacturer website, except I can't find anything on saltwater).Or Insl-x PR line?

Plastering isn't an option unfortunately, just because he won't listen to that! Thanks in advance!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Then he will shoot himself in the foot again.
