A two-pack cement-based coating which can be applied easily
and quickly using a paint brush. Having a base of white Portland cement it sets
rock hard, performs well underwater and can be repeatedly scrubbed if
necessary. Because of its critical formulation, it has excellent bond, flexural
and tensile strength, good abrasion and
chemical resistance and reduced drying shrinkage. It is non-hazardous and
potable water can be stored in structures treated internally with it.
To provide a tough, economical, easy-to-use cement coating
over old, pitted, dirty pool plaster. Having a base of white cement it becomes
an integral part of the pool plaster.
Pool Coating is intended to revitalize the surface as an
alternative to re-plastering. It must be noted that Pool Coating is a once-off
application. Should the surface become unacceptable over time, the pool will
have to be re-plastered.
One type only.
Supplied in Abbotsford Green, Blue, Charcoal, Sandstone,
Turquoise and White.
Old, dirty pool plaster that has been acid-washed. Not for
application to oil paint, plastic paint, new cement surfaces, fibreglass or new
Unopened drums can be stored in a dry shed, protected from
freezing, for 6 months.
Do not apply if rain or freezing conditions are expected
within 4 hours of application. During hot weather paint during early morning
and late afternoon. Any rain that does fall should be immediately removed from
the pool until 6 days air curing period has elapsed.
If algae is present, dilute 4 cups HtH into a 10 litre
bucket of warm water and apply liberally to dry, affected areas. Leave for 24
hours to kill spores, then wire-brush and flush off with clean water. In a
plastic bucket make a solution of 1 volume hydrochloric acid and 2 volumes
water. Apply liberally to old plaster using a blockbrush or nylon-bristled
brush. Allow acid solution to effervesce vigorously on the surface for at least
five minutes. Begin acidwashing in the deep end of the pool before it is covered
with neutralized acid solution.
brush the surface well using clean water and
a wirebrush to ensure that the surface is absolutely clean and hard. The
acid-washing and wire-brushing must be done
in such a way that the surface is visibly roughened and all traces of
calcium scale are removed. Jabbing with a paint scraper is sometimes necessary.
If there is any doubt, a second acid-washing and wirebrushing should be carried
Remove contents of drum. Pour in the liquid from the plastic
bottle. While stirring with a flat paddle, slowly pour in the powder from the
plastic bag. Mix to a creamy consistency. If too stiff, add small amounts of
water while stirring until a comfortable painting consistency is obtained. Do
not over-thin. Excessive mixing could cause foaming. Use all mixed material
within 1 hour. If a longer time is anticipated, split the packs and mix smaller
All pipes, weirs, mosaics, etc. should be masked using
masking tape. The tape must be removed the same day before the coating has
Surface to be damp but not glistening with water. Apply two
coats liberally using a large paint brush. Finish with the tip of the brush to
minimize brush marks. The brush should be worked horizontally for the first
coat and vertically for the second coat. A lambs-wool roller may be used for
applying the second coat. Allow complete drying between coats (minimum 3
hours), but both coats must be applied on the same day. brushes thoroughly in clean water when
work is held up. Do not pour unused mixes of Pool Coating down municipal
The completed work should be air cured for 6 days before
filling the pool with water. Any rain water that does fall during this period
should be immediately removed from the pool. Allow an extra day's air curing
for each day of rain during the six day curing period. Any stains caused by
leaves or any other normal organic matter can partially be removed with a
solution of 1 part hydrochloric acid and 20 parts clean water immediately
before filling. Allow three weeks before the automatic pool cleaner is
restarted. During this period use the pool brush only.
One 15 kg twin pack will cover approximately 25m2 with two
coats. Three packs are usually sufficient for treating an average 4,5m x 9m
