The time is an ultimate annihilator and it can eat away anything, even the most expertly maintained swimming pools as well. Yes, the pool in your home or your commercial property will wear away with time and the speed of wearing away would be more in the absence of timely maintenance. 

This can be tackled very easily with the help of painting the structure with the help of reputed pool painters Perth. In terms of painting the pool, experts say that concrete pool painting is the easiest to paint and with some tips and techniques, these pools made up of concrete can be painted even easily and professionally as well. 


The good thing about concrete pool painting is that different kinds of finishes are available for residential as well as commercial pools. Users have so many options to choose from based on their requirement, the pool’s condition, the budget they have and most importantly, the finish that they want to achieve. Let us have a look at top five finishes that are most commonly chosen by swimming pool owners of Australia.


  • According to pool painters Perth, this is the most common finish used in swimming pools made up of concrete, both new and old. 

  • To create this kind of finish, they apply a smooth, but dense layer of mortar and apply it using hand-trowel technique. 

  • The biggest USP of this finish is that it increases pool’s water retentiveness and this is the reason why it is seen in mostly new pools built in Australia.

  • With the help of colours purchased from swimming pool paint suppliers, this finish can be given the colour of your choice, otherwise, it is available in white colour.

Epoxy Paint-

  • Another very common name in terms of swimming pool interior finish is the epoxy paint, i.e. often considered as the aftermarket pool finish. 

  • However, you need to understand one thing is that repainting can be fairly expensive. 

  • However, the good news is that the overall life of this finish could be somewhere around 7 years. 

  • However, the stipulation attached with this finish is that it can only be applied to bare concrete or plaster or on previous epoxy pool paints.

Chlorinated Rubber-

  • The next name in the list is of chlorinated rubber or synthetic rubber that is known for offering the same durability, long-lasting life and quality like the epoxy paint. 
  • This one and epoxy paint are so similar that for the first time, even the expert would find it hard to trace the finish.
  • Some compatibility related issues are there with this finish and this is why pool painters Perth use the method of sandblasting to confirm that it will adhere to the surface.

Acrylic Paint-

  • An affordable and easy-to-apply option is acrylic paint finish, but at the same time, this one has the shortest lifespan.

  • Another USP of this finish is that it can be easily applied on the damp and even, wet surface too.

  • This makes it very popular because all other finishes have dampness related conditions to follow.

  • But nonetheless, this is an ideal option for refinishing pools with an existing interior surface that is failing.


  • The last name to include in this list is of the pebble finish, but this one is entirely different from all others described in this post.

  • In fact, swimming pool paint suppliers say that painting of a rough surface, which is exposed to pebble finishes is not idealistic.
