Given proper preparation, application and strict control of pool water chemistry as recommended by Colormaker Industries, LUXAPOOL® Chlorinated Rubber should last up to 3 years and LUXAPOOL® Epoxy should last 8-10 years (less for darker colours in both systems). Be aware that automatic cleaners such as Kreepy Krawley and Barracuda, etc., will decrease the overall wearing life of pool paints, especially on the floor. In addition to this, painted areas not immersed in water or close to the surface will age more quickly than those more deeply immersed, as they are exposed to higher amounts of UV light. As such, it can be of great benefit to add an extra coat of paint in these areas to extend the wearing life
