Marberlite Pool Paint
A cement-based, integrally coloured, waterproof finish
Marbelite Pool Paint is a cement-based, integrally coloured, waterproof finish, specifically formulated for the revamping of marble plastered pools. Applied by paintbrush and roller. Produced from carefully selected raw materials for consistency of product, it only requires mixing on-site.
Step 1 - Surface preparation
- Prepare a solution of 1 part hydrochloric acid and 3 parts water in a plastic bucket. Put the water in the bucket first and then add the
acid while stirring. Be sure to wear gloves and eye protection
- Apply the acid mix to the surface using a block-brush
- Scrub the surface vigorously using a wire brush and flush with clean water. Leave to dry for at least 3 hours
- Remove high spots and calcium build-up using 80 grit sandpaper. Be sure to remove any loose materials. The surface should be very rough to the touch. If this is not the case, repeat the acid washing procedure described above
- Brush and vacuum the entire surface to remove dust and debris. Dust on the surface will impede the adherence of the Pool Paint
- Mask all areas where there is a risk of splashing and staining and where straight edges are required
Step 2 - Mixing
- The use of a mixing spindle attached to an electric drill is recommended to ensure proper mixing
- Pour the liquid into the drum
- Slowly add the powder from the plastic bag while stirring
- The mixture should be smooth with no lumps. A small amount of water may be added if required
- ONCE COMPOUND IS MIXED IT MUST BE USED IMMEDIATELY
Step 3 - Application method
- Start the application at the deep-end of the pool with one person per side. Paint the walls first and then the floor. Marbelite Pool Paint is
a 2 coat application. The first coat is applied by soft bristle brush and the second coat by sheepskin roller. Both coats must be applied on
the same day
- Dip the paintbrush into the mixture and brush the surface liberally. Be sure to fill small holes and indentations
- Apply the first coat in one continuous operation to avoid dry joints. Do not stop and start. Do not patch
- Leave to dry for at least 3 hours
- Apply the second coat using a sheepskin roller. Ensure that the first coat is properly covered
- Remove masking tape and clean mosaics, etc.
Step 4 - Curing
- Leave the completed pool to air-cure for 6 days.
- In case of rain during this period, remove any water from the floor of the pool.
- Please read the start-up guide overleaf carefully for instructions on filling and chemical treatment.
Step 5 - Grouting
- Ensure that the joints are free from tile adhesive and any other foreign matter.
- Allow 24 hours before grouting with weber Tile Grout.
- Allow 48 hours for sealed or non-porous surfaces.
- In wet or permanently wet conditions, replace the water in the mix with weber Bond-it.
Coverage is approximately 20 to 25m² per 15 kg pack (2 coats).
- Integrally coloured
- Very simple to apply
- Available in colours slate, white and light blue
- Quality assured raw materials
- Exceptional and consistent quality
- Backed by superior technical support
- Provides a durable, coloured, waterproof coating for DIY application to marble plastered pools. Not suitable for use on newly plastered,
fibre-glass or previously painted pools.
- Incorrect water treatment causes the surface of marble plastered pools to become rough and stained over time. The usual way of
solving this is to replaster the pool, which is quite a costly exercise.
- Pool Paint is designed to provide a cost effective solution to this pr oblem. It will colour and revitalise the surface, thereby postponing the
need for replastering. It will not cover defects or structural cracks. With proper water treatment and correct maintenance of the
automatic pool cleaner, this coating can be expected to last for at least 4 years. It must, however, be noted that the pool will have to be
- Pool Paint provides a 1 mm coloured layer in much the same way that paint does on a plastered wall. Because it is cement-based, the
coating becomes part of the marble plaster surface through the hydration process of cement.
