The paint that is best for a gunite pool is masonry waterproofing paint such as Drylok EXTREME. Depending on the brand you choose your paint job can last up to eight years.
I have tried to paint my gunite pool last year with best paint you can buy at leslies pool supply and it did not even last a year, ifyou think it needs paint you might as well think about recoating it with gunite . I am now in a spot where all paint that is left on walls needs to be sandblasted and new gunite put on again, Hope you have better luck
Call Leslies' Pool supplies. They have paint, but it's about $100 a gallon. Good luck.
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.
The paint may be sandblasted off, Then just re-paint or marblelite
