What Should be Applied to a Baptismal Pool, Water Fountain or Small Pond?

Usually, a baptismal pool is made of fiberglass and coated with gelcoat. The gelcoat can either be restored or new gelcoat can be applied. How do you know which is best? New gelcoat is recommended if it is worn too thin or a new color is desired. Our gelcoat is very user friendly and can be sprayed or brushed in small areas. We don’t recommend the brushable gelcoat in pools because the chemicals can affect the gelcoat lifespan.

See our article in gelcoat application for more details.

Gelcoat can also be used in a water fountain or small pond, which are usually holding water. It is perfectly safe for fish once the paint is fully cured.
