2018 was a stunning summer both for lucky pool users and for our pool paint sales…our highest to date for all types of pool products. acrylic water based paint for spring-fed swimming poolsThis period included the supply of paints for an unusual spring-fed pool at the New Bath Hotel & Spa in Matlock Bath, pictured. They used our A148 Chlorinated Rubber in the pool "tank" in BS18E51 along with black lane lines. The outer concrete edge was painted with A148 Fine Anti-slip in a bespoke dark blue. Click Here to see Tony Robinson introduce this fun renovation on video.

Technical Paints offer a full free advisory service to help you before you paint. Just email us with a broad outline of your project, ideally with photos to show the condition of the substrate. We will assess your situation and give you our recommendations along with a painting specification and timings to help achieve your end result. If the condition of the substrate is too damaged or outside of our product range, then we will advise you accordingly.

If using paints in communal situations or areas of high use, remember water-based coatings don’t smell as much as solvent types. We do however have a comprehensive range of both. We offer a comprehensive range of paints and performance coatings for most situations and surfaces. Many are in stock and others, plus Special Mixes, are made to order within a few working days. With new resources, new raw material suppliers and increased sales, we are now able to offer a faster turnaround on our most popular products.

We are pleased to receive enquiries of a technical nature. Call us on 01202 295 570 or email us with your enquiry.

Once you have established the ideal end-result for your project, refer to our Substrate Index for product options and take a few invaluable moments to read our Painting Guides - see below.

"We would just like to say how delighted we are with your pool paint and your service. My husband says it's the best paint he's ever used and we have a very large pool, so it's a big job. Good stuff everyone, and many, many thanks."
