Kelly Technical Smart Seal Swimming Pool Paint Surface Preparation Kit Description
Prior to priming and painting your pool, you must prep the surface to ensure the paint will adhere for a long lasting finish. Kit includes 7 pounds of Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) and 8 pounds of Sulfamic Acid Cleaner. Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) â Removes oily deposits and dirt and is safe and easy to use. Sulfamic Acid Cleaner â Removes mineral deposits and scale from the pool’s surface. Directions: Step #1: dissolve 8 ounces of TSP into a gallon of warm water, which will cover approximately 100 square feet. Apply solution with a stiff-bristled brush. Once applied, rinse off with hose before the solution has time to dry. This washing compound will leave you with a clean surface that is ready for Step #2 â Sulfamic Acid Cleaner. It is advised to use rubber gloves as well as eye protection and avoid contact with skin or eyes when using sulfamic acid. This acid is a high-powered, crystalline form to be mixed with water to remove mineral deposits and other contaminants. Mix 2lbs. of Sulfamic Acid with two gallons of water. Be sure all powder has been dissolved fully before moving on. This combination of acid and water will cover approximately 200 square feet, and will clean and etch the pools surface. Use a stiff-bristled brush to scrub while rinsing every ten feet or so. Once complete, repeat Step #1 again to neutralize any remaining traces of acid. Let dry and start painting. Altogether kit will clean about 800 square feet.
