Epoxy Pool Paint offers all the benefits
thousands. Why re-apply marble plaster or fiberglass just because your swimming pool is stained? You can get excellent results with a durable, decorative Epoxy Pool Paint at a much lower cost. Pool renovation is now easier than ever before; even touch-up repairs at any stage require less effort than other lining options – at a fraction of the cost! Choosing our DIY Pool Paint solution can save you even more. Please note that a solid, non-brittle and strong surface is still required to sustain the epoxy pool paint layer.
Rain resistant within 3 hours after application (25 ˚C). With a little bit of research you can save yourself from a potential disaster, especially during the rainy season. Ensure you enquire about this specification when buying any product (read the datasheet or application instructions if available). Traditional indoor floor epoxy solutions sold as swimming pool paint are simply not up to par. Rain will not damage our product after a few hours of drying, thereby avoiding pigment wash or discolouring (8 hours of drying may be required during the winter for the coating to become rain resistant). Our product was developed for 24/7x365 submerged conditions and quick waterspot resistance.
scrubbing and shock treating the pool. You can now enjoy 100% resistance against algae stains. Algae will not cling to this enamel gloss pool paint. Algae growth is therefore drastically reduced, and the water can be kept clear and blue with less effort.
We offer our clients a 3-YEAR GUARANTEE on our pool paint against de-lamination to ensure your peace of mind that there are no production-related problems. The expected lifespan is historically proven to be 8 to 10 years in most cases, or even longer as reported by many of our existing customers whose testimonials are listed on this page.
That's not all; should you need to do pool repairs for whatever reason within the three year gauarantee period even if outside our guarantee conditions, we will replace the product for you at our factory cost level (no profit). We believe in friendly service and long-term customer support and once you are a customer, we hope you will stay our customer.

Our DIY instructions are very comprehensive and will be included in the package, or you may download it from the Downloads-page.
Can I do it myself?
If you can answer YES
1. Can you handle a grinder (or sandpaper for fiberglass) to slightly float-grind the Surface and effectively paint with a roller and a paint brush?
Yes? You are truly an DIY Enthusiast!. Go ahead, you can do it. Of course, you must be willing to face the sun while sweating it out in a slippery swimming pool.
Fill out the information
request form and we will email you the application
instructions right away.
2. Can you supervise one or two workers?
Then why wait? You are the DIY manager type. Save heaps and hire two workers to do the paint work. Guide them step by step using our very detailed application instructions while sitting in the shade. We know everyone with a roller is an expert painter, but be sure you are watching and directing, this is not a normal paint job.
3. Do you know a friend or a family member who is a handyman?
Yes? You are the subcontracting type DIY enthusiast. If you are willing to pay for his services, any handyman would gladly take on this job. Make sure they read the manual, you read it too, be involved with every step. This is not the same as fibreglass or just any other paint they have used before.
Please note, for DIY installations:
Should you rather require the services of a registered contractor, see or applicators list below for a full installation quote including material and labour (with full three-year workmanship guarantee), or maybe opt for an experienced private worker (Brian) who has installed our product on more than 1500 swimming pools, contact us for his details. You buy the DIY materials and pay him for his labour. (Our product replacement guarantee is valid should you make use of his services.)

Our DIY package offers:
No less than THREE thick gloss top-coat layers ensuring a longer life span.
We offer the epoxy paint material and additional hardware items to apply one primer
coat and three gloss
and chemical resistant
top-coat layers for long-lasting durability.
Unfortuanately many one- or two-layer "quick-and-easy" solutions on offer are resulting in the pool paint market not having a good report in general as can be seen on hellopeter.com and numerous customers comming to us after losing there money on these short-lived solutions.
In general, the thicker the top-coat epoxy layer, the longer the lifespan of the coating. Whilst this a good feature offered by our three-layer top-coat system, the higher viscosity of a thick top-coat product offers less penetration capability into the substrate. A thick top-coat offers longer lifespan but lack the deep penetration into the substrate. This is why we utilize a specialized industrial-rated concrete epoxy primer for penetration and bonding, chemically followed by three durable topcoat layers.
Video: Bond-Strength Testing
The better the penetration of the epoxy into the substrate, the smaller the chance of delamination. Therefore, penetration and bonding strength are the main reasons we incorporated a primer layer. This can only be achieved by utilising a lower viscosity epoxy concrete/cement primer. Following this, the best possible bond between layers is to apply the Topcoat epoxy on a wet/sticky Primer layer to create a "chemically fused" bond.
Don't settle for less!
Using our latest developments and upgrading from the traditional, older type epoxies to the latest technology epoxy resin and curing agents, we have overcome many problems associated with older type swimming pool paints.
Unlike many pool paint products that are prone to structural breakdown in submerged conditions due to the absorption of chemicals, water, and sunlight, the chemical reaction between our high-solids formulation epoxy resins and hardener components, forms circular, molecular "honeycomb" structures that are virtually impenetrable by other substances. Does this mean our product is indestructible? No. It is like buying a car, you should use it in the correct way and look after it. Owning a swimming pool is the same.
Don't allow this to happen
Is your marble plaster pool suffering from water loss? It could be that the pitting of the porous marble plaster structure has caused small holes where water is leaking through. Pitting, caused by severe algae growth and overdose of chemicals, might have softened the softer spots of the pool, allowing algae to penetrate deeper and deeper.
A Proven Product - The Test of Time
In 1997, our first epoxy pool paint product was applied on an old neglected pool. We re-visited the swimming pool in 2000, 2005, and 2008 to see how it was performing. After ten years, the swimming pool paint was still performing well. Look at how algae, accumulated on the steps and sides over a long period of time on spots where the pool cleaner never passes, could easily be wiped away by hand:
Not all epoxies are the same
Before spending your hard-earned money on just any off-the-shelf pool paint or so-called swimming pool epoxy, at least do a little bit of homework.
The following are typical problems related to some of the non-specialised swimming pool paints available:
Here are a few tips on how to make sure you buy a good product from a company that has stood the test of time:
You can read more about our tests and developments on the Technical Page.
Comparing Paints, Marble Plaster, Fiberglass, and Epoxy Coatings
If you ask your local swimming pool shop owner about pool paints or epoxies, he/she might advise you to rather re-apply marble plaster or fibreglass.
There are sometimes problems related to fiberglass linings, i.e., the accumulation of moist behind the fiberglass lining, especially where fiberglass is installed on existing structures, causing lifting of the lining from the base structure, in turn causing bubbles, cracking, and eventually leaks. This is a problem we have encountered many times. Considering the price tag on fiberglass linings, it can also be a costly exercise should it result in the total loss of the lining within a few years. When fiberglass is applied later on as an upgrade, the possibility of the top edge underneath the coping stone pulling away and allowing water to enter behind the lining also becomes a reality, posing the same problems mentioned above.
Epoxy paint coatings have the advantage that they cost far less to apply, are easy to repair, and can even be applied as a very cost-effective DIY solution. Epoxy coatings can easily be refurbished by re-applying two new top layers at 50% or less compared to the original full installation cost; even less (approx. 25% of original installation cost) if you re-apply it yourself as a DIY job.
Limitations: the ageing process on the epoxy coating is a gradual thinning of the coating. After a normal life expectancy of 8-10 years of service, you will notice the substrate or primer layer starting to show through in certain spots; then it is time to re-apply two new and thick top-coats. Re-application if you do it yourself can be done for approximately 25% of the original installation cost.
Although our product is well-tested and performs very well when the recommended chemicals are used to maintain the water, it is subject to damage by certain aggressive products that might reduce the lifespan or appearance. See our FAQ page for more information. As with all types of pool surfaces, attention should be given to test the Calcium Hardness (Total Hardness) after filling the pool. Total Hardness (Calcium content) readings below 350ppm might increase chalking of the paint and will reduce the lifespan. CAlcium Chloride flakes can be obtained from us and other outets and should be checked every 6 - 12 months.
A swimming pool enemy not many pool owners are aware of is low alkalinity and especially low Total Hardness (low Calcium Hardness). Staining and pitting on marble plastered pools, severe chalking of epoxy coatings, or discolouring and deterioration of fibreglass linings are often caused by low calcium levels. If this condition is not corrected and tested once in every 6 months, it will cause damage and even your epoxy-coated pool will be severely affected, reducing the lifespan of the product.
Testing the water every 6 months for "Total Hardness" will prevent the calcium levels to fall too low and the water to become aggressive towards the epoxy paint layer. Total hardness is also indicated on some water test strips (see picture below) and must be kept well between 350-550ppm regardless of swimming pool shops' recommendations. Ideal levels indicated on print-outs by water test machines are too low and not on par with the latest research findings. This is not a fluctuating condition and only needs to be checked after filling the swimming pool with fresh water.
The type of test strips shown below can test for "Total Hardness" and are available from Pool Solutions. The Insta Test 6 Plus test strips can be ordered to be included with your DIY epoxy paint package from Pool Solutions.

The Difference Between Epoxy and Paint
A well-developed epoxy paint system consists of two main elements, namely an EPOXY RESIN and a CATALYST (HARDENER), as well as many other additives. Our own product consists of no less than 14 different elements. The combination of the two main binding elements does not rely on the evaporation of solvents or water to air-dry like most single element paint products.
Paints do not chemically form the molecular ring-bound structures that resist foreign element penetration into the coating. A true epoxy system will normally have an A- to B-part ratio of between 2:1 and 4:1. Our product has been tested on concrete and marbelite and offer bond-strengths of up to 400 psi (2.8 MPA), resulting in concrete substrate breakage under test.
It is a scientifically proven fact that large percentages of solvents or water in the formulation will adversely affect qualities like bonding capability, colour stability and penetration resistance to water and chemicals. These products are commonly found in normal paints or watered-down epoxy products. In a specialised epoxy system, chemical binding of the Catalyst molecules exactly weighted to match the molecular mass of the Resin part causes a chemical reaction which forms microscopic circular structures almost like a honeycomb structure. This circular formation is a thousand times stronger and thus less prone to penetration by water and chemicals, and, in our case, 100% immune to algae infestation. We offer a high-solids (90%) formulation with zero or very low solvent content (0-10%) in the top-coat.
Except for the enjoyment you and your family will get from of an aesthetically pleasing swimming pool, a well-looked-after swimming pool has also proved to be an important asset to any private property owner.

"...IT LASTED A FULL 11-YEARS"
I painted our pool with your product 11-years ago and it lasted a full 11-years.
We got quotes for fibreglass and re-marblite and was shocked to hear it would cost more than what we paid for our first home. We took a family decision to do it ourselves and use the money we save to go oversees. We did exactly that!
It was hard work but an absolute great and fun experience, bonded the family (also literally when the glue primer was painted with big laughs and slips)
Now when we drink that glass of red alongside an absolute pristine pool, the satisfaction and smug smiles just don't want to disappear.
"Lyk nog mooi na 15 jaar!"

LYK NOG MOOI!

"ONS IS REGTIG BAIE TEVREDE
Baie dankie vir julle vinnige diens met ons navraag oor jul produk. Ons het die voorraad binne n week ontvang.
Ons is regtig baie tevrede met jul produk en die eind resultaat van ons swembad.
Jul webtuiste is baie goed uiteengesit en verbruikers vriendelik.
Vind aangeheg fotos van ons swembad.
"Ek is so beindruk met julle diens."
Baie vriendelik, professioneel, betroubaar en vinnig. Ek het meer as een kwotasie vir ons swembad gekry, julle s'n was die goedkoopste en die eindresultaat lyk uitstekend.
"ACE'D IT AGAIN"
I originally used the DIY kit in 2008. Super impressed with how long it lasted. reapplying and hoping for another 12 years or more. Philip was quick to reply and showed great product knowledge with good detailed answers to my question about covering spider cracks and the original primer coat showing through. Delivery was quick and correct first time.
"I highly recommend the product and supplier"
What I can say is that both your epoxy coating pool product is proving its worth. The documentation provided was user friendly. And your feedback on issues was speedy and supportive. Would I highly recommend the product and supplier/ Yes!
"The product performed as promised: Our complex pool looks like new"
"astounded at the excellent service I got from them"
Some ten years ago Pool Solutions repainted my swimming pool. Now ten years later I once again contracted them to repaint the swimming pool again.
"the product provided by them does not know its match in the market"
I wanted to refurbish my black marble lite pool. The requirement was to turn it into a normal blue pool. The obvious solution was to use Pool Solutions and the epoxy paint they are known for.
From my previous experience the product provided by them does not know its match in the market. The request to do the job was executed with a high level of efficiency and customer care. It started with a fixed appointment that they kept. They actually arrived on time. This type of service is unknown to the general South African citizen.
Attention to detail was excellent and the finished product superior. The value added part was the education provided on how to look after your pool on a day to day basis and thus protect your investment. This they based on many years of experience and one immediately could grasp that they are knowledgeable on the subject and what they are talking about. I can definitely vouched for the product and the service provided by Pool Solutions.
"10 years of Stunning Looks"
We applied Pool Solutions' Epoxy pool paint in a DIY kit form in 2001 believing that it would last about 3 years. The result was a stunning light blue pool that always looked clean. Due to the fact that the epoxy paint dries to a ceramic like finish, algae does not take hold and I believe you use less chemicals to maintain the pool's cleanliness. The 2001 application began to wear thin and tarnish in 2012 and we are about to re paint using the same product.
"You have a fantastic product and customer service".
Phillip answered my emails faster than some people answer their telephones. He even assisted me over the weekends! I will be recommending the product to everyone :)

"Professionalism and high standard of workmanship displayed" - by our registered contractors:
I take this opportunity to thank A&L Maintenance for their professionalism and high standard of workmanship displayed when attending to our pool repairs.
We have in the past had various contractors who did absolutely shoddy work or simply failed to show.
Attie and his team were always on time, prepared and extremely helpful. Their work area was consistently clean and their staff friendly and well informed.
After the previous disappointments we were relieved to find a team who still pride themselves on excellent customer service and an end product that exceeded our expectations.
Please extend our sincere thanks to your contractor and thank you for the recommendation.

Herewith an updated photo of my pool since I repainted it.
Its fantastic ,and so is your product.
His work ethic is amazing
I just want to thank you for giving me the phone number of the worker (Brian) that helped me with my DIY pool paint project.
He is a true asset for your Company, he is punctual, well spoken, respectful and to top it all really knows his job. His work ethic is amazing, he scrapped and sanded down the whole pool and before going to bed he cleaned the whole area. He was up again at 06h00 and ready to work.
It is not often I throw bouquets but he is really an exceptional guy.
My DIY project photos -
The guys really assisted me well. I could call while I was coating my pool to get assistance. Due to the remoteness of the area from the supplier I needed to do the work myself. It took me 5 days, but the job got done.
Dit het my hoogste verwagtinge oortref
Ek het 22 Januarie 2015 my swembad se verf bestel en in Februarie die bad laat verf deur Brian. Brian het eerstens my totaal oorbluf met sy profesionele optrede en sy algemene handel en wandel.
Alhoewel die bad nou minder as ‘n maand terug gedoen is, sal daar iets drasties fout moet gaan om my opinie oor die produk te verander. Dit het my hoogste verwagtinge oortref.
“Well done” aan jou en jou span.

"Challenging DIY Report"
Conclusion: The product is very good for DIY application, when you have some technical skills. To mix always 2 l for direct use is easy to handle, to follow tediously the instructions is necessary, to be flexible with weather & helpers, and make sure that the pool is 100% dry, dry, dry. The preparation is the utmost important exercise in order to get a perfect result.

"Thank You For a Product That Lives up to Your Promises"
Hello Pool Solutions,
Thank you for a product that lives up to your promises
"What a beautifull outcome to my pool"
Thank you very much for the wonderfull product that i bought from you guys earlier this year.
I started with the grinding of the pool last friday and with the primer yesterday and finish with the topcoats today.
What a beautifull outcome to my pool. I hereby include before and after photos of my pool.
Thank you very much again.
"The quality of craftsmanship was excellent"
I had my pool for +- 14 years and the stains were just too much. I tried various chemicals to clean the pool with no success. Algae were a major problem and no matter how hard I tried to curb the rapid growth thereof, I wasn't very successful. I was quit desperate and almost re-marbled the pool at a very costly price. Then I saw an advertisement of Pool Solutions.
Pool Solutions renovated my pool in 2005. I must say they did a brilliant job! My pool looks like new one and unlike the past, it now is a focus point of the garden. I have no hesitation in recommending their service. Not only was the work done quickly, but the quality of craftsmanship was excellent. I had to refer their service to my friends who subsequent also made use of their services with much satisfaction.
If you feel that you have reached the end of the road with your swimming pool, don’t give up…..give Pool Solutions a call. Like I say: “Cry now, and swim tomorrow”.
Thanks you guys.
"my absolute tevredenheid met die puik diens"
Goeie middag Phillip

Baie dankie vir die vriendelike wyse waarop jy graag kennis deel, selfs al is dit net 'n kort telefoon gesprek.
Ek heg graag 'n paar fotos hierby aan ter illustrasie van die before en after produk
