Epoxy over old pea gravel?

Has anyone ever put the epoxy used in garage floors over old, worn pea gravel? I really dislike the pea gravel, but it would cost thousands to redo it. It surrounds our pool and there is quite a bit of it. Thanks!

That epoxy is a coating, a form of paint. I do no believe ot would work on loose gravel of any type.

oh lord no. There are products specifically for that application. If you don't mind a bit of an amber hue, Klingstone Path is great. If you want a clear coating (and are willing to shell out for it), there's a product called Gravel-Lok. Google them or talk to your local stone yard.

the pea gravel is set into concrete. It is not loose. I'll check out the recommendations. Thanks!

Hello,It seems as though you maybe speaking of what is known as Exposed Agg. If in deed it is, Lowes/Home Depot has a roll on product under the name of Eagle. It is made just for the application you speak of. I have used it for many years on our exposed agg. front porch and sidewalk without any problems.Here in So. Indiana the product cost is appox. $30.00 a gal. Hope this helps.
