Your quick response to my initial inquiry was a pleasant surprise and the literature you sent was very informative and easy to follow. The instructions were first class and application tips were great – the pool looks fantastic. I was impressed with the quality of the epoxy from New Zealand.
Thank you for all your help and advise for the refurbishment of our pool. The materials you supplied are first rate were easy to apply and the instructions easy to follow which enabled us to complete a perfect job.
I cannot tell you how pleased with are with the results we have achieved using Epotec. Firstly the decision to go with a rendered pool as opposed to pebblecrete has resulted in a pool surface that we were after. I swum in my neighbours pool on the weekend and it felt so rough and on top of that was dirty…the finish is just not conducive. The Epotec finish is just so clean and smooth that we are absolutely delighted with our pool. The product guidelines that you provided were perfect…we finished painting two coats with about 100ml spare at the end. We did thin the product out with about 100mls per pack as the temperature was quite high when we painted. The colour is perfect and matched the colour on the website perfectly. I would definitely recommend to anyone to render and paint their pool and I would definitely recommend Epotec as a high quality, easy to use finish…
Your “Bondi” mid blue Epotec epoxy Poolpaint arrived quickly and OK for our 11mx 4m x1.5m Fibreglass Pool which is about 25 years old and has not been touched but was in pretty good condition.
We started emptying our Fibreglass Pool just using Pool Pump to waste
After 2 days of sanding and a couple of minor fibreglass and bog repairs, and NO RAIN my wife and I got into the painting with Epotec. It was 15 deg at 8am when we started and did not go above 25 to 30 deg for the 3 days we took. The first coat I did the top and around the leaf gutter and kids ledge half way down walls, with a 120 mm lambswool roller which worked very well, and my wife did the sides and bottom with a 250 mm lambswool roller. The first coat took more time and it took the 2 of us until 2pm to finish with 1/2 hour for lunch.( 6 hours) We changed rollers and cleaned roller frame (used same frames for all coats) for each can of paint and it took 3 cans with each can having 50ml of thinners added prior to the hardener. Same procedure each day with the 3rd day having 2 cans left (we had 8) so walls and floor got a third coat which only took me about 3 hours as no fiddly bits. It looks great and we were very pleased with the product and our efforts.
No rain on it while we worked or afterwards while it cured.We gave it 6 days no rain 30 deg temp to cure, then filled it with 2 garden hoses taking a total of 16 hours over a day and a half.
Thanks for your help. I am a handyman and do most jobs and had a farm so this was no big deal but a lot of time and sweat expended (we were careful to have an old towel rag around our necks to mop up sweat so it didnt fall onto wet paint, (although you said that minor water wouldnt worry it) on hot days getting it prepared. The mid blue colour shows a very slight green tinge to it when filled with water and looks like clear Barrier Reef diving areas, so turned out great.
Thanks for your help on the phone when we ordered. So far very happy, and hope it lasts a long time.
All done, and without issues. The service you provided, the price of the product and the product quality were all above expectations, to say the least.
I will be recommending your company and your product (EPOTEC) to all my friends and family should they need any pool resurfacing done.
I finally finished the pool. It was a momentous project. The pool has come up a treat. All the info supplied was a tremendous help. Really impressed with the finish.
