    Closing pool this week

    I am going to close the pool on Thursday, so I started taking ladders and handrails off today. Add bleach to bring it up to slam level, and will let it drift down before closing and covering. All other numbers looked very good.

    This is a picture of the inside of the ladder when I took it off today. I didn't see anything else that looked funny, but I am not sure if this is some sort of algae, of maybe a salt residue. Any thoughts?

    Looks like either salt or calcium residue. This is inside the pipe that's mounted into your pool deck, correct? Nothing to worry about. Clean it out with a brush and next season when you put it back in, coat the outside of the pipe with some vaseline to ease removal in the fall.

    Thanks JV! I've already taken the steps apart and cleaned everything. (Wife thinks I'm crazy). That is correct about these mount into the deck. I'll remember the Vaseline thing next spring! Thanks!

    I wouldn't use vasoline near the pool. It is a petroleum product.

    Meh. It shouldn't be going in the pool. I don't see a problem with using it on the pool deck mounting holes. If you're worried about it, use a teflon or silicone based grease.
