Is pool paint safe for concrete lined fish pond?

kandm(8b coastal alabama)May 13, 2010

We finally finished scooping out all of the dirt, leaves, bricks and stagnant water and the concrete is so filthy. I know I'm going to have to power wash then recement but I was thinking about using some pool paint as well.

Do you think it would poison the fish? The stuff is safe for peoples so I assume it would be safe for aquatic life but who knows.

Any suggestions? The pond is about 5' x 4' x 4'.

There ls a product called PermaFlex. It's a paint on pond liner that comes in four colors. One gallon covers 300 sq ft on a non-porous surface such as metal.

Here is a link that might be useful: PermaFlex

That Pema flex is a good product but is expensive around 100 bucks a gallon . Pool paints would probably work also and give you more choices of color. Suspect they are expensive also. You coud just put in a liner solve all the problems if not too rough wouldn't even have to pressure wash gary

Do liners come in colors other than black?

PVC comes in blue but is only guaranteed for like five years. RV roofing has a white side but it's a lot more expensive than the rubber pond liner.
