Frequently asked Questions
Q1. What sort of mixing would I need to do, i.e. does it come as one or multiple parts?
Pool-fix™ comes in a 1 kg kit consisting of 2 parts. We call them Part A and Part B. Part A is the resin. Part B is the hardener. It’s pretty easy you just add all of part B to part A thoroughly mix with just a stirring stick, ensuring both parts are mixed properly before starting the application.
Q2. What colours does it come in?
Usually 3 colours in stock. White, light blue and dark blue.
Q3. Does the water need to be a particular temperature for application?
Pool-fix™ As long as your pool is not over 40 degrees or under 0
Q4. What preparation is needed for the surface?
Remove all loose contamination by wire brushing or scraping using a spatula. Remove any scale, dirt, with waterproof abrasive paper (wet & dry paper) and grease where applicable.
Q5. How do I apply the coating? What should I know before mixing the two products?
It is recommended that an old long sleeved shirt and gloves should be worn when applying. A useful tip from one of our users said he wore an old balaklava to ensure he kept his hair clean. Mix the two components thoroughly, soon after mixing apply using a brush, trowel, putty knife, mitts or spatula. A standard brush would work fine. A popular method is by brush followed by smoothing out with a trowel or by hand.
Q6. Is this something that I can carry out myself while the water is still in? And is there any other equipment I should be considering for the job?
The big advantage of this product is that it can be applied underwater without having to empty all the water out. All pools are different and the repair areas can vary significantly. It is critical to follow the instructions on the data sheets. Have the surface preparation done before mixing the two parts together.
