DURING 1997, being a pool owner for many years, I had enough of the
constant troubles keeping a marble plastered swimming pool clean and
shiny. I tried re-painting my swimming pool with of-the shelve
cement/water-based "pool paint" with disastrous results and having to
constantly remove the little paint chips cluttering my filter system for
the next year or two. Normal pool paints available of-the-shelve just
didn't seem to be a trustworthy solution.
The following year, a friend visited me who has just started a business, manufacturing a new breakthrough-technology epoxy coating product. He showed me the test results and told me that this technology is targeted for coating the hulls of large sea vessels. I thought: "If this could work on ship's hulls in the harsh conditions of the ocean, why not on my swimming pool?"
We started testing the swimming pool paint and the results were amazing. We started marketing the product to home-owners. This cost-saving solution offered to swimming pool owners soon developed into a family business.
Disaster struck a few years later when the factory supplying the epoxy paint closed down due to a split in partnership. It left us without a good product. I knew back then that this sought-after solution couldn't be left to fade away. My swimming pool was a breeze to maintain with the gloss, enamel epoxy paint and this cost-effective solution could revolutionize the swimming pool refurbishing industry!
We tried other epoxy pool paint products from a few other so-called swimming pool epoxy manufacturers, trying one product after the other, costing us thousands in "school fees". The quality was just not what we had before. After-sale service and support was almost non-existent. The formulations were rather old technology targeted for the epoxy floor-coating industry and it did not perform well under constant submerged conditions, let alone working with these products in an outdoor environment with potential rain contamination.
After months of research and with the help of technical advisors from
internationally acclaimed chemical companies, I started implementing the
latest technologies available in the epoxy industry with latest
water-resistant epoxies hardeners and additives. With the new
formulations we were successful in overcoming the many problems relating
This research took me a year and a small fortune, but we started out
with our own improved and industry-customised epoxy pool paint that gave
us the advantage and the breakthroughs we have hoped for. We can now
offer a quality and trustworthy product to the swimming pool market,
setting a standard with a well-tested 4-layer system that stood the test
of time. We
envite our visitors to verify our reputation as a market leader in an
industry riddled with many pitfalls.
We were the first company to offer a 3-year warranty against delamination even to the DIY market. After more years of testing we started offering a 5-year extended warranty. Many others suppliers had to up their game and started offering a warranty to the DIY market as well, sometimes with disastrous results. We have seen several swimming pool paint companies come and go over the years.
Of course, some competitors nowadays are also offering a warranty, in many cases with boisterous claims not worth anything but serving as a marketing gimmick. This is why we have opted for an independent customer rating platform like Hellopeter.com to confirm our commitment to product quality and after-sale service.
