In The Swim Super Poxy Shield pool paint is the highest-quality epoxy pool coating available. A single coat lasts up to 8 years. If you are painting a bare surface, please make sure you prime the surface before rolling the Super Poxy Shield. Super Poxy Shield over an Epoxy Primer will deliver a stain-resistant, tile-like finish on the pools interior. Due to the tile-like finish, we suggest sprinkling sand on the coating before it dries for steps, shallow areas and wading pools. This will make these areas slip-resistant. Start rolling paint with the walls of the pool first and finish with the floor last.
