The expected scope of this project was to blast and surface prep existing coatings and concrete in order to recoat. All blasting needed to be consistent throughout with no loose or failings edges of paint. Full containment including wrapping over the drains of the pool system to minimize the amount of dust and debris was set up.
THE REMOVAL PROCESS
Vapor blasting was used to remove up to 50% of the original pool coating. Grinding was done to finish up the additional layer of coating that needed removal. Then a bulk media cleanup was finalized with the pressure washing of all surfaces. The biggest hangup was achieving the desired prepped surface per the spec. The reason for this was that too many layers of paint were unaccounted for that we had to get to in order to get a consistent finish. We ended up substituting the remainder of what was supposed to be blasting into hand grinding in order to get to that consistency.
We ended up creating a solution for consistency. The site's cleanliness was massive. They did not shut down the club, so all eyes were on us. We didn’t leave any media behind, we cleaned out the flower beds to ensure there were no media in them. Blast It Clean strategically created a solution that satisfied what the client was looking for in the end.
