The Pool Painting Process

Luxapool Pool Paint

If you are looking for the worlds highest quality pool paint then you can not go past  Luxapool. Manufactured by Colormaker for over 30 years our pool paints have proven to stand the test of time (while others fell by the waste side). All our paints are specifically engineered and manufactured for the use in all swimming pool environments.  Cheaper pool paint have many issues, most commonly mass discolouration and peeling. The waxes that trap the colours come to the surface and form a white layer. There is nothing that came be done once this occurs.

Luxapool pool paints offer a huge range (largest in the industry) of colours to suit all pools and surrounds at the most affordable prices. Custom colours can be made to order and can finish your dream pool in any colour imaginable. Check out our Color Chart to see our recommended pool paint colours.

Pools Plus Painting has over 10 years experience using Colormaker products with wonderful results for all our clients. Two part epoxies are our specialty with chlorinated rubber being used predominantly in commercial applications.

The Paint Preparation Process

  • Draining the pool and blasting the pool at 3600psi to remove surface contaminants such as paint, calcium and minerals. The high pressure blasting etches the plaster to ensure a good bond with the paint.

  • Finding and removing “hollows” in plaster, removing decayed plaster.

  • Repairing any cracks, holes and hollows with two part epoxies.

Good preparation is the key to effectively painting your swimming pool. We take all the steps (and then some) to ensure your pool surface is perfect to maximise the pool paint bonding to it. This ensures no bubbling, peeling or cracking for the life of the painted pool. Our 4 step preparation for concrete pools is the most complete in the market today.

WE DO NOT ACID WASH OLD PLASTER as the process causes major and rapid deterioration of the pool surface leading to paint bonding failure.
All of these processes are necessary to maximize the life of the pool paint and guarantee a well bonded coating. Pools Plus Painting is the only pool painting company in Perth to provide such a high level of preparation in all projects.

Painting To Finish

Once the pool is properly patched and the surface is prepared we tape all areas required and apply two coats of Luxapool swimming pool paint 24 hours apart. The end result is a high build coating thicker than any other pool paint on the market. The thicker the epoxy the longer it will last. That is why we use only Luxapool.

Once dry all tape is removed any new equipment is then fitted and the site cleaned prior to client final inspection.
