(available in white or light blue - 48 oz - 3 qrt - 3 gal units)
"Just wanted to let you know that the white water gard 300 I purchased to repair
my fiberglass swimming pool underwater worked great!!! Just what I was looking
for. The product covered more area than I expected, but I may be ordering more!!!
Did test spots on shallow area and steps, and It looks like it did 31 years ago.
Going to tackle the deep area next. Tested using a brush and a roller. The paint
brush worked a little better for me. Thank You So Much!! I will share with
others!" ----- Helen from LA.
and more feedback from Helen years later:
up since 2014. Color blends perfectly, will yellow slightly with age and
sun exposure, but better than the black spots and exposed fiberglass!!
microfiber roller cover (3/8 inch nap,) as my deep end is 8 feet deep.
8 to 4 ratio (tablespoons) of part A and Part B in a small plastic container.
Stirred with narrow plastic puddy knife and applied paint like butter to all
areas of the roller then applied to the surface . Continued this process
till batch was empty. Then repeat. It’s very hot in Louisiana, 90 degrees
and high humidity here so the pot life is short. This way none is wasted!
One full buttered roller of paint covers about a dinner plate sized area.
Was hard and dry in 24 hours, or maybe less.
but worth the beautiful outcome. I, my husband, children and grandchildren
continue to enjoy our 38 year old fiberglass pool because of water guard 300.
it wouldn’t pop out of the ground when emptied!
Hey Paul, Just wanted to drop you a line. Just wanted to thank you again for
your Water Gard 300 under water epoxy paint. As we have discussed in the past,
we have a Commercial Steel pool, and no matter how well we prep it for paint each
year, we always end up with a few rust spots part way through the season.
Once again your Water Gard 300 came to the rescue to touch up some particularly
ugly rust spots this year.Thanks Again! Howard - Dxx Swim Club
and more feedback from Howard:
"Just wanted to let you know that your Water Gard 300 pool touch up kit was
a life saver for us this year. We painted our Swim Club pool this year, and the
pool paint we used turned out to be super slippery. Opening day we had several
people comment on how slippery the steps were leading into the shallow end of
the pool. We were scrambling to figure out how we could fix that since the pool
was now full of water, and then we remembered that we had bought a kit of your
Water Gard 300. After we closed that night we mixed some of your epoxy with a
little bit of sand and brushed it on the the steps.
It was like magic, the steps were no longer slippery, and the color nearly
matched the pool paint. The next day, folks were none the wiser that the
steps had been painted the night before, and the steps had just the right
grip for safe entry into the pool.
We are now over a month into the season, and the paint has
held up excellently. Last night we used it to touch up some rust
spots (Our pool is actually Steel) that had bled through the pool paint.
We will definitely be using more of your product next year.
Very Best Regards,"
(The entire pool is steel (never any issues or problems
with metal pools) It is a 5 lane competition length pool.
It was built in 1955. Steel was cheep and welders were
even cheaper when the Korean finished up, so they built
it out of steel. When the water is out you can still see the
weld seems every 5 feet or so, even through the layers
and layers of pool paint.
Unfortunately, the water gets under the paint or the paint layers
peel off, and then we get rust spots showing through.
Every year we have to scrape and repaint.)
"All I can say is thank you....I have a small fiberglass in-ground pool
with visible bare spots. With the cost of repainting (estimates of $5000)
and risk of the pool popping out of the ground if it was emptied to be
repainted I looked for alternatives and found you.
Used the Water gard 300 you sent. I followed your advice and the
instructions provided. There were 3 or 4 bare spots. One was about
2 feet long and down to the fiberglass very ugly. The epoxy you
recommended for the job was so easy to use. Saving me money.
Thank you so much."

8/14 -- My name is T..R... and I live in Las Vegas, Nev. I have a beautiful
custom pool and I noticed a small area on the side wall of my pool.
I took a wire brush and tried to remove the dark colored spot.
Unfortunately I rubbed too hard and made it worse, much worse.
I contacted 10 different pool companies and each of them informed
me that I would need to drain the pool to repair the spot that was
getting larger by the day. Draining a pool with 28,000 gallons during
the summer is bad enough, but fixing the plaster that had been rubbed
down to the Gunnite is very expensive. I needed a quick fix and there
did not seem to be one! Well, I was wrong.
I discovered a man named Paul Oman at epoxyproducts.com on the
internet when I searched for (plaster underwater repair) and to my
amazement he told me about an epoxy that you mix in a ratio of
2 to 1 (Water Gard 300 - available in white or light blue).
Once last thing, Paul sent me the white at my request. I mixed a
light blue paint from a hobby store and my pool looks great.
This product is perfect and it is for real. Do yourself a favor and
don’t listen to the pool guys, they want your business and
that adds up to big bucks!
Thanks again Paul for helping me solve this problem. --- T..R..
Hi Paul. This is Dave from San Angelo, Tx. As I told you before,
the underwater applied epoxy worked great. I recommend you
send your product info to all pool companies and pool supply
retailers or if you can find out who has fiberglass pools and
send them info if they ever need it. Thanks 6/16
"My story. We have a fiberglass pool that is 31 years old.
I know they are not
supposed to last that long. But this one is starting to have
‘surface’ cracks (and I think more than surface cracks). We
have ordered the Water Gard 300 epoxy twice to fix them
and it has worked GREAT. That is the best stuff EVER… I can’t drain my pool, because I have a really high water table. (the pond in my
back is ground water---). And I think the integrity of
the Fiberglass is gone. My grandkids love the pool. We are
just trying to keep it together for the rest of the season,
then figure out what to do." ---

I'm not the kind of person to give feedback on products or services but I must comment on the Water Gard 300 product. I purchased a home 4 years ago with a fiberglass pool and 2 years ago it started to significantly chip. Long story short, after significant analysis from multiple experts, it turns out that the pool had ruptured and was repaired. Unfortunately the repair person applied the fiberglass topcoat incorrectly and it is all coming off. Luckily the pool is structurally sound, just very ugly to look at. Estimates to fix it range from $8,000 to $25,000 and no one would guarantee that the entire pool would not collapse after draining the water which would require an entire replacement.
|After a year of searching, and countless
attempts at other solutions, I came across your product. This
product is amazing! I still can't believe it's even possible to
apply a paint (sorry epoxy) underwater. I used a 14 foot extension
pole with a roller to apply the paint/epoxy. The most time consuming
part was mixing parts A and B together. I purchased the 3 gallon
size but since I was working alone I mixed small batches since the
pot life was short. For roughly $350 my pool looks brand new! I
can't thank you enough. I've attached some before and after
|"Hi there! This e-mail has no question but I was just looking through your site and I wanted to say that it's great! I was just looking around the internet to read about the subject of epoxy and no other site I visited was as helpful as yours. You are very knowledgeable in that subject and I admire that. Great work and I wish you the best! " - Gabriella 10/15|

"Hi Paul, ---Thank you so much for all the info. Each time I spoke with you, I found you to be a very helpful, personable individual. You seemed genuinely interested in helping me get the right products and making sure that I know exactly the best way to apply it for optimum results. Sadly, in today’s business world, those are not common traits. It definitely was a pleasure to do business with you ( as cliche as that saying is.) I definitely will recommend to anyone who needs your products. Best wishes for continued success. Sincerely, Julie" (6/2019)
