Concrete painting dilemma


Hi everyone.
Finally after 4 long months of searching we bought our first house.
There is nice pool area behind the house that is painted in awful red color. I am looking to repaint but I'm not sure if anything else needs to be done to prepare area for painting (pressure cleaning, primer etc. ) or what kind of paint I should use. Any advice is more than welcome
Thank you in advance.

Here is couple pictures:

I believe so, if you look at white drain lines (second pic. left corner) look like paint over...

Concrete painting dilemma


Unlikely that is paint....looks to be a typical plaster job....the color is too even......I'm not sure you can paint it....part of you problem is that paint will make the surface more slippery and hotter....

We know you don't like the color....but right now, I would push that way down on the list. Your solutions are not going to be cheap.

Yes i saw the drain lines,but could it possibly be a stain of some kind??,i've never seen a pool deck painted but i suppose it could happen,trouble is if it is paint then it becomes a never ending job of maintenance,you might ask a local pool company to take a look at it,they might be able to pour a cool deck over it if it is paint.

If its a coating of any kind that is holding up well over time then its probably a specialty coating like epoxy or other resinous coating. In this case you really need to know what is on it, to know how to prep it what will go over it.

If its house paint or something that was applied recently, that seems like disaster waiting to happen.
