Special care must be taken to ensure the success of coating metal pool surfaces. Aluminum, steel, and galvanized steel all have their special properties which require the selection of the appropriate primer. Bare metal should receive two coats of primer to eliminate pinholes and corrosion. DO NOT use the primer over an existing coating.
