whats the gloss level of the existing coating? given it is a wet area and by the imperfections during changed lighting conditions described I would assume it is not a matte finish.

Aura Bath and spa is a mat finish but quite as flat as K508 for example. It's 3-4,5% @ 85degrees.

I might consider using a low sheen exterior product also...

Well I just got feedback from my supplier after sending him my price. The HO found a paint contractor that will spray the ceiling without need of proper scaffholding/floor. On top of it, he tried to return 8 gallons of tinted Aura because the contractor will be using standard contractor grade ceiling paint. Can't wait to hear about it once they're done, I doubt one can do a good job without proper scaffholding, and the existing one's pretty scary IMO. Looks like in the end the HO went cheap and got the first guy that said yes. TBC...

Pools are all about the set up. The last 3 I have done with 2 scissor lifts and 3 34' metal picks. Place a lift on each short side and tie the planks together and strap them to lift. Cover the pool with a large tarp and use bungee cords to keep it tight. Also draining the pool is best for the chlorine but at least have them take out a foot or two. Run a few large fans and try to get some fresh air inside. Use a good primer sealer and a quality flat ceiling paint.

So far there's no pool yet, just a big uneven hole in the ground with shady scaffholding on half the area. That's why I thought a temporary floor would be good. I understand that you think ceiling paint is sufficiant? When you look at the specs for humidity tolerance it's pretty clear that not all paints are garanteed for that, hence why my supplier insisted on the Aura bath n spa. I don't think you could garantee the job with a product non rated for the conditions.

That being said you seem to know quite well what you're doing, so I'm all ears!

What's the advantage of a flat lid in a pool area? I'd think the porosity would be cause for concern, no? I've never done an interior pool lid aside from some touch up in an athletic club we used to do maintenance on....it was in oil though. We're talking many, many moons ago...

The only pools I've done were epoxy. That being said I would use exterior coatings on this bad boy. High humidity, damp, etc I'd use the best primer/sealer I could get my hands on, then 2 coats of a quality exterior flat or satin
