I had a 14 x 28 inground cement pool and had to repaint it because it was bubbling up and popping off. To remove the old paint you can hire some guys who can sand blast it all off, but that was costly and I wanted to not spend too much. So I chose to take a wire wheel on a 7" angle grinder and remove as much paint as possible off all the walls and any loose spots that were bubbled up or chipping. This was hard work let me tell you. I also went through and power washed the whole thing.

After I cleaned up my mess the pool place suggested an acid bath, but I said nope didnjt want to spend the money. They also recommened primer, but I only did the walls in primer. Primer was like $60 per gallon and acrylic paint was like $100 per gallon, not cheap at all. After I primed it I started painting the deep end and up to the shallow end. The worst part about painting was keeping leaves and shit blowing around in the wind from sticking to the new paint.

As far as colors go I wanted to the nice blue colore also and I was told to buy a white paint, and I must say it looked good when I was done. I also must say that after 2 years or so bubbles in the paint started appearing again. I was told that with cement pools painting doesn't last very long. I also looked into a vinyl liner but those were much more expensive, and that wasnt something I wanted to try and do by myself. Anyway thats my experience with painting a pool. Oh and I must add, POOLS suck and I will never own one again!!!!! LOL

I find nothing more relaxing than waking up on saturday, pouring myself a cup of coffee and floating in my pool. I love my pool even though its worse than a boat.

However I had less than $50 into the acid/two bath and I had borrowed a pressure washer. Acid, two, bush, gloves, and boots.

I found inslx pool paint on amazon today for $90? For 2 gallons of acrylic. They offer the dark blue I was looking for as well. Also buy fat, thick, 12" wide rollers, a 3" wide roller and a 2" brush. If its deep buy 2 extension poles. Don't be cheap like me and only get one.

If you really don't want to do it, you can watch my brother and I argue, but get it done for $1200.
