How Can I Determine What Type of Paint Is on My Pool?
The type of existing paint can be determined by wiping the surface with various solvents. The solvents will start to dissolve the paint film causing it to soften and become sticky. The solvent that affects the paint film determines what type of paint is present. To perform the tests first clean the immediate surface area(s) to be sure that there are no contaminants or chalk present. Rinse the area with clean water and allow it too thoroughly dry. Next, saturate a clean cotton ball with the solvent #1, and then gently wipe it back and forth in a linear pattern approximately 6 inches in length. The paint should start to lose gloss and then become soft/sticky after 4 or 5 passes. If not, use solvent #2 and another cotton ball to apply that solvent in an adjacent area. If there is no reaction use solvent #3 in yet another area. Tests should be conducted in at least 3 to 4 areas within the pool. It is extremely important that you wear rubber gloves to protect your skin from the solvents. Indicator solvents are as follows:
Solvent #1) Denatured Alcohol – softens waterborne acrylic pool paint
Solvent #2) Xylene – softens both chlorinated rubber and synthetic rubber-based pool paints
Solvent #3) MEK – softens solvent based epoxy pool paint
