What Are Epoxy Resins?

Epoxy resins are a specialized coating that’s used to waterproof the interior of an in-ground swimming pool. These resins are waterproof and create a permanent barrier between the water and the porous surface beneath the paint. 

Epoxy is relatively economical, and it’s available in a broad range of colors and styles. The material is usually brushed onto the pool, and additional components can be added to the epoxy to promote adhesion or offer a different texture and look. 

Epoxy resins can be reapplied as needed, prolonging the lifespan of a pool, and they can even be applied by homeowners for an affordable way to maintain your pool. The downside of epoxy resins is that they’re more expensive than other topcoat finishes.
