Pool Paint Calculation Guide

To calculate how much paint you will need for your pool, multiply length x width x 1.7. If you are applying two coats, mutiply that by 2. This is the total square footage that you need to cover. Now, divide this number by how many square feet the gallon of paint covers. For instance, if the gallon of paint covers 300 square feet, you would calculate length x width x 1.7 x 2 (coats) divided by 300. This will give you the number of gallons that you will need.

If your concrete or plaster surface is NOT painted, it will absorb more paint on the first coat, so you will get less coverage to the gallon..please keep that in mind when ordering. Always order a little more if painting bare concrete/plaster.

The charts below are based on two coat coverage and give you an estimated amount of gallons you will need for your size pool and the type of paint you are using.
