After the primer has dried, you can begin painting the pool using the topcoat epoxy and resurfacing solution. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations and start painting from the shallowest to the deepest. Before applying the next coat, let the topcoat dry completely. To ensure that the next coat adheres properly, sand the pool between coats. Most pools require three to four coats. This can take up to an hour depending on the weather.
A above-ground pool can be patched for $10 (DIY kits) and cost $1,700 to replace completely. An inground pool, on the other hand costs $20 to repair (DIY kits) and $5,000 to resurface, if it isn't severely damaged. This cost will vary depending on the type of pool, which I discuss below.
The cost of materials is often significantly higher than labor costs. You can end up paying anywhere from $1,000 for basic plaster to more than $50,000 for designer tiling.
