NEWSLETTER,

this time we are showing how EPOTEC works successfully with previously painted pools.

While upgrading your pool don’t forget to think about your pool surrounds too. It’s easy to upgrade to a nice new, decorative, non-slip easy clean surface while working on your pool.

MEGATREAT

Applying Epotec correctly for maximum performance.

  1. Introduction:

In order to get a lasting result with Epotec on a pool there are 3 key things to follow and a few others that assist.

  1. Three Key factors:
  • The surfaces need to be clean; no fats, oils or dirt etc
  • The surfaces need to be stable: no drummy, soft, worn, blistered areas.
  • The product needs to be mixed, applied and allowed to cure correctly.
  1. Note as follows: (Full details in the Application Notes
  • Use detergent and water to clean surfaces, NOT acid.
  • Remove any suspect surface: blisters, drummy areas, weak and worn areas, any cement surfaces showing rust stains.
  • Repair defects using materials designed for water IMMERSIION, not external or internal use.
  • Before coating, any surface moisture is to be removed, though damp surfaces okay so long as warm sunny day is happening.
  • Do not apply if SURFACE (not air) temperature is below 13 C and falling. Use infra-red thermometer to check surface temperature.
  • Apply coatings in the morning so as to finish by 12 noon (winter) 1 pm (summer) times. If you apply later may not cure before evening dew and thus a white bloom may occur.
  • Mix by hand and allow to stand for 20 mins (30 mins in winter) before applying.
  • When applying do about 1 – 2 sq M per application. Roll (brush) into an “H” pattern so as to spread the Epotec around and lap adjoining areas. See attached sketch.
  • Note that life is related to dry film thickness, so MAKE sure evenly spread out. Otherwise some areas will wear away too soon and others will last much longer.
  • Allow to cure without dew, rain, for 12 – 24 hrs between coats or longer in winter, but no more than 72 hours.
  • After last coat wait 5 days (summer) 7 days (winter) before filling and adding chemicals. ( if you need to fill sooner, call us first)
  • Dilute or dissolve ALL chemicals before putting into pool, inc salt.
  • Ensure pool water balance kept to our recommendations for maximum life.

Layout EPOTEC

  1. Loaded roller, middle of 1 x 2 M area, roll up or away to apply.
  2. Then roll on R and L sides to apply more coating.
  3. Roll across WHOLE area to move paint around and get uniform coverage.

(Repeat 2 and 3 if needed to make sure UNIFORM coating thickness).

  1. Lay off in ONE direction, usually down walls and towards you on floors.
  2. Move to next 1 x 2 M area and repeat, over lapping just completed areas by about 100 – 200 mm.

4. Summary

By following the key aspects detailed above (and those in the Application Notes) you will get a much better outcome. If not sure about anything, contact us before you start

Vertical banding as no L to R spreading, only vertical.

Roller lines visible on bottom

Not enough uniform spreading out , so worn off too soon in some areas.
