How to re-vamp a marble plastered pool

 

In this section, you will find the suggested weber.cote Pool Paint application techniques.

Problem

Surface preparation

  1. Prepare a solution of 1 part of hydrochloric acid and 3 parts of water in a plastic bucket. Put the water in the bucket first and then add the acid while stirring. Be sure to wear gloves and eye protection.
  2. Apply the acid mix to the surface using a blockbrush.
  3. Scrub the surface vigorously using a wire brush and flush with clean water. Leave to dry for at least 3 hours.
  4. Remove high spots and calcium build-up using 80 grit sandpaper. Be sure to remove any loose materials.
  5. The surface should be very rough to the touch. If this is not the case, repeat the acid washing procedure described above.
  6. Brush and vacuum the entire surface to remove dust and debris. Dust on the surface will impede the adherence of the weber.cote Pool Paint. Mask all areas where there is a risk of splashing and staining and where straight edges are required.

Solution

Mixing

  1. The use of a mixing spindle attached to an electric drill is recommended to ensure proper mixing.
  2. Pour the liquid into the drum.
  3. Slowly add the powder from the plastic bag while stirring. The mixture should be smooth with no lumps . A small amount of water may be added if required.

Application method and curing

Start the application at the deep-end of the pool with one person per side. Paint the walls first and then the floor.

  1. weber.cote Pool Paint is a 2 coat application. The first coat is applied by soft bristle brush and the second coat by sheepskin roller. Both coats must be applied on the same day.
  2. Dip the paintbrush into the mixture and brush the surface liberally. Be sure to fill small holes and indentations.
  3. Apply the first coat in one continuous operation to avoid dry joints. Do not stop and start. Do not patch. Leave to dry for at least 3 hours.
  4. Apply the second coat using a sheepskin roller. Ensure that the first coat is properly covered.
  5. Remove masking tape and clean mosaics, etc.
  6. Leave the completed pool to air-cure for 6 days. In case of rain during this period, remove any water from the floor of the pool.

PLEASE NOTE:

Please read the start-up guide carefully for instructions on filling and chemical treatment.

Both coats MUST be applied on the same day.
