Why We Use Luxapool Pool Paint
Luxapool pool paint is a great way to protect a new plastered surface or rejuvenate an old concrete / plaster pool. It is aesthetically very pleasing while creating a smooth protective layer over the plaster. Painted pools very rarely need new plaster…ever.
Luxapool pool paint is a two part epoxy specifically design and developed for Australian concrete / plaster swimming pools. Boutique Pool Renovations supports the use of Luxapool pool paint in all of our projects. Luxapool has been and still is the highest build two part swimming pool paint available. Over 22 years of manufacturing and superior quality control have allowed Colormaker to produce the number one selling pool paint in Australia. Over 90% of pool professionals know and recommend Luxapool as the only pool paint to use.
Luxapool pool paint will last 5 – 10 years, sometimes longer depending on how regularly chemicals are balanced. Combined with good preparation of the swimming pool and regular Luxapool two part epoxy will stand the test of time. Swimming pool paint is a very hard finishing product that is scratch resistant, chemical resistant and hard wearing.
The Pool Paint Process
As with all of our services we have researched, tried and tested the optimal way to apply swimming pool paint. With our 20 years experience in painting swimming pools in Perth, we have come to learn a thing or two. All of this research and experience goes into every pool we resurface. Every pool we paint is prepared to the same stringent standards to guarantee a solid bond with the paint. The steps are as follows.
Surface Preparation – By far and away the most important part of the process. Concrete swimming pools are first water blasted at 4000 psi to remove any loose or decaying plaster and identify hollows. Once blasted the surface is inspected to ensure it is etched. Only new plaster is acid washed.
Patching – Large imperfections are patched using epoxy filler. Epoxy filler is much more expensive than other patching materials for good reason. The product adheres better than any other, is 100% compatible with epoxy paints and needs no sealing prior to painting. It is also guaranteed to never shrink, crack or deteriorate in any way.
Taping – All areas not being painted are taped to prevent transfer. this includes pool steps, jets and lights.
Primer Coat – If the concrete swimming pool has not been painted previously, a two part primer is first applied to seal the cement and prepares the surface for paint.
First Coat – The first coat of Luxapool pool paint is applied with special attention to all the “cut in” areas.
Coating Inspection – Any imperfections are sanded ready for the next coat.
Final Coat – The final coat of pool paint is applied.
Clean Up – All the tape is removed, any new lights or jets are fitted and the rubbish is taken away. We take clean up very seriously.
