About Us, The Home of Swimming Pool Paints
About Technical Paint Services, The Home of Swimming Pool Paints.
Thank you for visiting our website which provides details of our swimming pool paints and coatings as well as a range of associated pool-related products. It is the specialist pools website of Technical Paint Services, an independent, specialist paint manufacturer and supplier, established in 1946 - that's 75 years of experience for you to draw upon!
We are specialist paint manufacturers, offering a variety of coatings to be used in swimming pools, in pool halls, pool structures and enclosures, in ponds, water features and on surrounding pool areas. Please note we are not decorating contractors and do not provide a painting/application service.
Paint for swimming pool maintenance. We manufacture our own range of Chlorinated Rubber Swimming Pool Paint and Acrylic Swimming Pool Paint. We have a range of water based pool paints and chlorinated rubber based coatings for both under and above water. Our Chlorinated Rubber Paint may be used for hydrotherapy pools and spas including canine and equine therapy pools. These animal pools should be regularly cleaned by pressure washing.
Anti-slip pool paint, chemical and urine resistant paints and high performance multi-surface paints available. A variety of coatings to be used in pools and on pool surrounds. Smooth, gloss and anti-slip paints to treat concrete and metal surfaces along with pools, changing and shower areas. Paint for pool structures, paddling pools, ornamental ponds, Baptism & Blessing pools and water features. We have a fine, anti-slip finish for aluminium pool copings.
NOTE: For advice regarding all GRP/Glass Fibre, previously lined or marbelite pools, whether coated or uncoated, please call our Technical Team on 01202 295570.
IT’S SUMMER, IT’S HOT and the time for using your outdoor pool is finally here!!! When painting externally, beware of heavy thunder storms washing away your newly-applied paint, particularly water-based types. It is however, the ideal time to undertake those larger external jobs such as pool tanks, pool surrounds, walls, roofs and plant buildings; it’s a great time to dry out any damp surfaces before painting.
In the current heat all paints will dry faster...some will dry too fast so beware. Avoid painting in strong, direct sunlight, particularly on to hot concrete, metal or tarmac surfaces. You should start in the early morning, possibly in the evening and ideally in the shade. This should help to avoid ‘mud cracking’, where the surface dries too fast and the paint beneath not at all, thus resembling dried mud! When applying, don’t over thin as the paint is already thinner when warm and will set too quickly, losing its “wet edge” prematurely. With over 75 years of experience and a few hot summers behind us, we can advise you fully, along with a specification and application advice…just ask.
"We would just like to say how delighted we are with your pool paint and your service. Our order was shipped to Cyprus - by us - and one tin had spilt in transit. All our responsibility, of course, but you replaced it free of charge, and immediately. Unasked! 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."
We offer a comprehensive range of paints and performance coatings for most situations and surfaces. Some popular types are in stock and others are made to order within a few working days. With new resources, 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 295570 or email us with your enquiry.

If you suffer with “Solar Gain” (greenhouse effect) from a glass, asphalt or metal roof, see our Solar Reflective and Anti-glare products which are available HERE.
Pool Paints - We offer a wide range of standard colours available in either WB148 Water Based Pool Paint or our A148 Chlorinated Rubber Pool Paint, delivered within a few days, and other bespoke colours typically available in about 7 days.
If you are lucky enough to have combined sports facilities, we make Squash and Tennis Court Coatings along with the appropriate Line-Marking Paints. A full range of Specialist Primers and Coatings for your steel superstructures are also available, along with Smooth and Anti-Slip Flooring Paints for all applications.
You should start your seasonal maintenance process by identifying the surface (substrate) to be painted, it’s general condition and what you want the end result to look like (such as colour, texture and sheen). Once you have established your ideal end-result, refer to our Substrate Index for options and take a few invaluable moments to read our Painting Guides - see below.
