The information I picked up at the store and from the paint manufacturer's website said it is a four step process: clean with a degreaser and cleaning product, etching, primer and paint. Are all four really needed? I was thinking pressure washing would suffice for the first step (no grease, etc...) and was wondering if the primer was really needed too? Any thoughts or experiences?

HERE IS OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PAINTED CONCRETE. ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO, WE PAINTED OUR CONCRETE AROUND THE POOL. WE ALSO DID THE 4 STEPS RECOMMENDED BY THE PAINT COMPANY. TODAY, MY HUSBAND IS RENTING A PRESSURE WASHER TO GET THE PAINT OFF BECAUSE FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THE PAINT PITTING TO THE POINT WHERE IT LOOK SO UGLY THAT I WISH I WOULD HAVE LEFT IT ALONE. WE TRIED REPAINTING IT 2 YEARS AGO, BUT IT'S PITTING AGAIN. WHAT A HASSLE AND AN EYE SORE TO A BEAUTIFUL POOL. I WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD WE THE TROUBLE WE WOULD BE GOING THROUGH EVERY YEAR WHEN WE OPEN OUR POOL. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO YOU TO TRY ANOTHER WAY TO COVER THE CONCRETE.
