Do you have to sandblast paint off a gunite pool in order to repaint?

It would depend on the condition of the gunite and how many layers of paint are underneath. If the gunite is cracked or popping in places, sandblasting may damage the pool more. If the pool has been painted only one time previously acid washing may suffice. But you will always need to acid wash as a part of prepping the pool prior to painting. If there are several layers of paint on the pool sandblasting will ensure a better paint job. If you go with the acid washing and painting over existing paint be sure to have a chip of paint tested.
