Underwater epoxy can "fix/seal/paint" your damaged

swimming pool without draining the water

(we sell a lot of it - must be one of the best options available -- order the white 1.5 quart Water  Gard 300 for skimmer repair)

 

NOTE: These are Industrial Epoxy Coatings and not the sort of products sold at swimming pool

supply stores, hardware stores, or pool web sites. In commercial settings they are found in chemical

plants, lift stations, state aquariums, city/YMCA swimming pools, waste water facilities, pits, tanks and sumps.

underwater paint

Paul,

I'm not the kind of person to give feedback on products or services but I must comment on the Water Gard 300 product. I purchased a home 4 years ago with a fiberglass pool and 2 years ago it started to significantly chip. Long story short, after significant analysis from multiple experts, it turns out that the pool had ruptured and was repaired. Unfortunately the repair person applied the fiberglass topcoat incorrectly and it is all coming off. Luckily the pool is structurally sound, just very ugly to look at. Estimates to fix it range from $8,000 to $25,000 and no one would guarantee that the entire pool would not collapse after draining the water which would require an entire replacement.

apply underwater epoxy

After a year of searching, and countless attempts at other solutions, I came across your product. This product is amazing! I still can't believe it's even possible to apply a paint (sorry epoxy) underwater. I used a 14 foot extension pole with a roller to apply the paint/epoxy. The most time consuming part was mixing parts A and B together. I purchased the 3 gallon size but since I was working alone I mixed small batches since the pot life was short. For roughly $350 my pool looks brand new! I can't thank you enough. I've attached some before and after pictures.

Thanks again,

David

WET DRY 700 (tm) - kevlar (tm) / feldspar/ceramic industrial grade epoxy paste. Cures underwater or on dry surfaces. If you only kept one epoxy putty repair product on your boat, workshop, or tool box, this would be it. This off-white epoxy (turns yellow over time) can be applied underwater. It has saved sinking boats, leaking swimming pools, repaired rotting window sills, and bonded wood to wood, wood to cement walls etc.  Wall mud or cake icing thick. Not be be confused with our thick light blue or white  Water Gard 300 epoxy paint which can also be applied underwater (generally pool repairs or marine barrier coats) or our thick, gray, kevlar (tm) reinforced epoxy underwater paint, Corro Coat fc2100A. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO on all three of these industrial epoxies.

Jeff (1/2013)   I cannot believe how incredible this Wet Dry 700 is. It's revolutionary. The original repair to my storm shelter would have lasted years if the shelter would just stop shifting around in the ground. DON'T STOP SELLING THIS STUFF.

 (10/2013)     Comments: Returning  -  Underwater boat repair - My third or fourth order and am still quite pleased with the result. It has many uses above and below the water line.

Order any of these  two part EPOXY Products NOW

Divers applying Underwater Epoxy for Commercial Aquarium Repair


 

In A Nutshell....
 
You can apply the very thick Water Gard 300 epoxy paint underwater to fix small leaks or chips in your swimming pool (or spa or aquarium or fountain). Colors are white and light blue. Our Wet Dry 700 epoxy is a kelvar (tm) reinforced epoxy putty that can be used underwater as well for 'serious' repairs.  Color of the Wet Dry 700 is off white but it will turn yellow quickly. They work great on non underwater repairs as well.
 
Order Water Gard 300 or Wet Dry 700  at www.epoxyusa.com or call 603-435-7199 to order or for questions.
 
July and Aug are REALLY busy swimming pool crack/chip repair. We have several Water Gard 300 kits going out every day! Order your Water Gard now while inventory is high.


Introduction:


We tend to shy away from swimming pools because there are lots of mystery problems, less than professional contractors, and demanding owners. Pool companies come and go at alarming rates, often without paying their supplies and leaving pool owners in the air.

We do not carry swimming pool paint / epoxy, but we do have products that are used in pool repair and preparation, as well as around the outside perimeter of the pools.


Cracks:

Note repair products may stop or plug the crack but will not address the cause of the problem (settling, ground movement, etc.) so the crack may re-open or new cracks may appear.

Fixing cracks in dry pools: use our WET DRY 700 (about 30 - 60 minute working time - color off white).

Attaching - reattaching pool tiles:

Preparing gunite/plaster pools for coating - recoating:

Important information. More and more we are starting to believe that most of the coating problems with these kinds of pools come originate from three possible causes.

1) moisture and minerals migrating from the concrete/plaster side of the coating and not from the water filled side.

2) water side concrete damage due to pool chemicals and the often low quality of the gunite, plaster etc. to start with.

3) chloride (from bacteria control chemicals) or sulfate contamination (from pH control chemicals) that can cause blistering of new pool coatings in gunite/concrete, or even fiberglass and/or metal pools. These need to be removed.

In any case, we believe poor quality materials, pool chemicals, groundwater movement inside the concrete, etc. all combine to make the paster/gunite an unstable and weak surface on which to apply a pool paint, especially a low or no solvent coating which basically bonds only to the very surface of the gunite/cement.

Below is our latest thinking on pool repainting. It is focused on gunite - plaster - cement pools, but I would use the exact same steps -products - technique on fiberglass or metal pools as well. Again, this is just my thoughts based upon lots of conversations with vendors, pool owners, contractors, etc., and is not some sort of offical recommendation. Hopefully you can use this information as a starting point for your own needs.

"OK...thanks for the personal touch. And for such an informative website. The navigation took me a while to grasp, but I really appreciate all the credible, helpful information you provide. This is my 3rd or 4th order over the years and I give you a A or A+ grade on all of it.

I'm a nit-picking former Polaris nuclear missile targeting and firing guy so you don't get a good grade from me unless you are on target!" -- Dave   7/14


Clean the surface and treat with biocide to remove dirt and grime and kill any organic organisms.

Sand blast the surface (a more practical alterative is to use high pressure water, say 2500 psi or greater). This removes the soaps etc., as well as removing loose sand grains, rust, etc.

Treat with a salt removing solution. These salts will absorb moisture through the pool paint potentially forming corrosive liquid filled blisters, or growing expanding crystals that will crack the pool paint. We do not sell such a micro salt removing wash product at this time.

High pressure water wash the surface yet again, this time to remove the salts and salt remover.

Epoxy seal the pool. In my limited experience, priming the gunite, plaster, etc.with solvent thinned epoxy before applying the swimming pool paint, seems to greatly reduce or eliminate pool paint adhesion problems. Use our Low V epoxy cut about 15 - 25% with xylene. Not a bad idea for fiberglass or metal pool surfaces also. We want the epoxy to be thin enough to leave behind the surface texture of the gunite, metal, etc.

Coat with a swimming pool paint within 48 hours of applying the epoxy (so that there will be a bit of chemical, as well as mechanical, bonding between the epoxy and the paint).


I have no experience with pool paints, nor do I have any such product to sell or recommend. I could not imagine any pool paint having a problem going over a thin coat of epoxy, but I would still check/ask just to be on the safe side.


Treating - protecting the concrete lip around the pool:

Coat - seal (wet down) with our Bio Vee Seal. This product will soak into the concrete making it less porous and permeable, thus less attacked by pool chemicals, acid rain, etc. Vee seal leaves no trace of itself on the concrete, it works inside the concrete plugging pores and spaces below the surface.

Pebble Stone walks and areas:

These stone walks need epoxy resealing every few years. Use our least expensive Basic No Blush Epoxy here. The tricky part is applying the epoxy evenly over the stones. It is too easy to watch lots of epoxy simply disappear between the stones within a tiny area. I think we have a solution - a thick foam brush with slits to keep the epoxy from being forced out of the roller when one part of the roller is compressed down by the stones (we sell these rollers for $6.50). Coverage is about 250 square feet per 1.5 gallon kit. Visit our Riverstone page for more information.

Epoxy "Stab Brush" --  "Regular Brush"

Use with products on this page

buy separately or include with your order

STAB BRUSH - 3 inch wide with 3/4 inch bristles. Most epoxies are too thick for a regular brush. Stab brushes allow you to push and move the epoxy around and 'stab' or poke it into cracks, voids, and corners

REGULAR BRUSH - 2 inch wide and extra thick with synthetic bristles. Use with varnish, paints and thin epoxies. Priced for disposable use.

Find Stab Brushes and Regular Brushes in our MARINE CATALOG or in our HOME/COMMERCIAL CATALOG

8/14 -- My name is T..R... and I live in Las Vegas, Nev. I have a beautiful custom pool and I noticed a small area on the side wall of my pool. I took a wire brush and tried to remove the dark colored spot. Unfortunately I rubbed too hard and made it worse, much worse.

I contacted 10 different pool companies and each of them informed me that I would need to drain the pool to repair the spot that was getting larger by the day. Draining a pool with 28,000 gallons during the summer is bad enough, but fixing the plaster that had been rubbed down to the Gunnite is very expensive. I needed a quick fix and there did not seem to be one! Well, I was wrong.

I discovered a man named Paul Oman at epoxyproducts.com on the internet when I searched for (plaster underwater repair) and to my amazement he told me about an epoxy that you mix in a ratio of 2 to 1 (Water Gard 300 - available in white or light blue).

It is human nature to be skeptical. Wow, this product is incredible! It repaired the spot perfectly for less than $100 and not the thousands that I would certainly have had to spend to repair the side of my pool.

Once last thing, Paul sent me the white at my request. I mixed a light blue paint from a hobby store and my pool looks great. This product is perfect and it is for real. Do yourself a favor and don’t listen to the pool guys, they want your business and that adds up to big bucks!

Thanks again Paul for helping me solve this problem. --- T..R..
