old waterproof paint peeling


Our basement floor has not been painted for many years and I do not remember what was used. We tried applying drylock waterproof paint and it began to peel as soon as it f dryed. Even the dryin itself took longer than it should have. Is there some sort of primer that can be used first?

Welcome lacks. It sounds like the hydrostatic pressure on the floor is greater than drylock can withstand. Normal drylock withstands 10 psi. Extreme drylock stops 12 psi. You might try that. But that's what you need to find--a stronger lock against the moisture. I don't know of any stronger, but you might find some on Google. If they fail, you need to go to another forum. Good Luck with it and keep us posted. Joe

Sounds to me like you are trying to put drylock on a previously painted floor, no can do.You will need to remove all paint in order for drylock to work, Sorry about that.

Chrisn, I think he's putting it over the exposed concrete after it peeled. But it's a good point to bring to his attention.

Link looks good It's a nice website, basic, but nice and gets the point across. Has that been up long?
