Do It Yourself Rubber Pool Deck Covering

Save

The concrete patio deck surface surrounding an outdoor, in-ground swimming pool is hard on feet when hot and can make for a serious slipping hazard when it gets wet or covered with algae. However, there are many rubber pool deck covers on the market today. These deck covers, which are similar to the protective rubber padding found underneath most playground equipment, come in a variety of colors. Often, they are made to look like natural stone.

Things You'll Need

  • Blower
  • Pressure washer
  • Hose
  • Bleach
  • Deck covering
  • Epoxy seal
  • Utility knife
  • Power up the blower and blow the area clear of all leaves, dirt and other debris.

  • Connect the hose to the pressure washer. Add bleach to the pressure washer reservoir and plug the pressure washer in.

  • Pressure wash the concrete deck area around the pool where the rubber deck covering will be installed. Allow 24 hours for the concrete area around the pool to dry before laying the rubber pool covering.

  • Apply epoxy to the back side of a piece of rubber pool deck covering and lay the piece flat on the concrete. Continue this process, laying the covering in squares. Use a utility knife to round off edges of the covering around the pool, if necessary. Allow the covering to settle and dry for at least 48 hours before walking on it or getting it wet.
