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?"

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 to:
