I redceived a standard spam email from National Coatings, and it caught my attention as it sounded like a product that I could use. I wanted to repaint my pool, and knew the process involved in redoing it with epoxy paints would be time consuming and difficult. I contacted them, and spoke with Dave Sanders, the GM. He told me he had used the product on his own pool, it was 12 years old and looked like new. He told me it was a simple matter of draining the pool, letting it dry, painting and I could refill within hours. I ordered the product, paid for the shipping and duties to have it delivered (Close to $800), Then received a call for Dave wondering how it had gone. I hadn’t done it yet as I was waiting for spring when we would have dryer weather to drain and fill it. He told me I would need an additional product “”Powersolve” to clean the surface prior to painting. Since I had already purchased the paint, I was forced to spend another $250 to have the Powersolve shipped to me. When I finally drained the pool, I pressure washed the surface, I used the powersolve product to scrub the surface although it didn’t appear to make it any cleaner. I did a light acid wash on as some areas were especially stained (Overkill according to Dave, but would have been standard with normal Epoxy coating). I then let the pool dry for several days, do make sure there was absolutely no moisture. I painted the pool with his product, it went on nicely on 90% of the area, but a few spots were starting to bubble before it was even finished drying. I let the pool sit for another five days to make sure the coating had set (Overkill according to Dave) But when I filled the pool again, I have seen more portions of the coating bubbling up, and peeling. The entire edge around the surface has peeled and come off into my water so I had to vacuum up the pieces. After one season, I have a pool that looks far worse than before I spent $1000 and countless hours trying to make it look good. The sand in my filter needs to be changed because so much paint flecks has gone in that it is beyond backwashing now. I will need to rent a sand blaster or something to remove the remaining flecks of coating, and spend another $1000 or more to acid wash and paint with epoxy. I complained to the company asking for some sort of compensation for the product that did not work at all like was promised, and have not even received so much as a response.
