Pool Tiling and Painting


There is only one way to refinish pool tile and paint...

The right way!

The key to a successful finish is to prepare the pool correctly and to use the right products.

Tiling Process:

  • Drain Pool
  • Remove existing tile
  • Completely remove any old thin set, mortar or adhesive that was behind tiles
  • Repair any cracks or damage to pool
  • Completely clean, and wire brush to electric tool to remove any loose material.
  • Select the porcelain tile of customer choice.
  • Install new tile with correct thinset and mixing product. Mortar is not mixed with water!
  • Grout tiles

The new tile cannot be submersed in water for several weeks. Image sets up suction pipes for the skimmers so that the pool can be used during this time – Our Season Is Short!


    


 Painting Process:

  • Drain Pool
  • Scrape away any loose paint
  • Repair damaged areas of the pool
  • Soda Blast the pool to etch the surface to ensure the paint bonds correctly.
  • Prime the pool with the appropriate choice of product
  • Prime coat
  • Finish coat(s)

   


     


Epoxy Coatings

Epoxy pool coatings have proven to be the most effective long-range protection for swimming pool surfaces. This is due to the fact that epoxies cure to a very hard, non-porous finish that is insensitive to pool chemicals, ph balance and automatic pool cleaning machines. Their "ceramic-like" qualities create a fresh and inviting appearance that is easy to clean and extremely durable.

Image recommends and uses Olympic Epoxy Products.


Zeron:

The Zeron system is the longest lasting epoxy pool coating available. You can expect up to eight years of service from  one application of this product.

The greatest advantage of the Zeron system is that it only requires one coat.

Uncoated pool surfaces will require a prime coat to insure good adhesion.

Zeron is a heavier bodied material than POXOLON 2 and requires a little more effort in its application and will not spread as far. However, due to the extremely long life of Zeron, the cost per year of service is lower than any other pool coating available.


Poxolon 2:

The Poxolon 2 system is a high gloss epoxy pool coating that is easy to apply and should yield up to five years of service. This finish is very easy to clean as is the case with all epoxy pool coatings.

Uncoated pool surfaces will require a prime coat to insure good adhesion.

Two finish coats of Poxolon 2 are required in all cases.
