Summer season in Australia is the season of endless fun in and around the swimming pool, but this also a fact that this takes its toll on the pool. Yes, too much of usage of pool means encouraging more wear and tear and when it grows more than your imaginations, there arises the necessity of getting it repaired, restored and painted. If only painting is the requirement in that case, you will have to avail the services of top pool painters Perth working in your area. 

They will take a number of steps to ensure that the pool is painted to your utmost satisfaction and some preparation would be needed for that we have covered in this write-up. 

Preparation is the Key -

According to reputed swimming pool paint suppliers, the entire game is of how well the base or the entire swimming pool has been prepared for the process of painting. Different kinds of paints require different kinds of preparations, but some steps are common in the preparation of pool for painting. They are – emptying the pool and unplugging all the pool related equipments and then, pressure washing would be required to set the surface free from dirt, dust, debris. The water pressure in this pressure washer should be around 300 PSI and not less than that. Washing it twice using this pressure washing machine would be required, if your pool hasn’t been cleaned for too long and it is extremely grimy. 

Repairs and Cleaning -

Once this cleaning part is over, the experts will engage in the necessary minor repair work as well as further cleaning of the surface. However, whether to take this step or not depends entirely on the condition of the pool after pressure washing. Once it has been cleaned, vacuuming would be required to vacuum any debris using a soft bristle head.



Safety First -

Pool painters Perth realise the risks associated with the process of pool painting and hence for them, safety comes first. They will ensure that there is a safe mixing area available to mix swimming pool paints sourced from swimming pool paint suppliers. In a majority of cases, they prefer spaces that are near the pool and covered with tarps, cardboards, drop sheet, etc. to protect the ground from accidental spilling. Other than this, they ensure that they are equipped with all the safety equipments needed to make them paint the pool safely.

Mixing -

In terms of mixing, pool painters Perth are very precise and ensure that the instructions on the paints are followed. They use drill mixer to mix the paint thoroughly because mixing using hands is not sufficient and can bring inconsistency in the shade of the paint. The mixed paint is abandoned for 10 minutes and then, they apply the first coat, that happens to be the base coat.

Application -

Once the paint has set properly for 10 minutes, their first step is to cut in the corners and the edges of the pool using a brush and then, rollers would be used to paint the rest of the pool. They will cover the entire surface using a strong coating and then, it is left to dry or around 6-7 hours. Then, the process is repeated and the second coat is applied. It is recommended to not wait more than 48 hours between 2 coats. Allow 7 days of drying before re-filling your pool. If the surface becomes wet, or if it rains, remove the water and allow to continue curing.
