    How do you keep ladders and railings shiny?

    How do you keep your ladders and railings shiny? Ours have water spots all over them and I can't keep them looking clean. Is there anything I can apply to them to help them keep their shine?

    Yes, I know that sounds OCD but with my sparkly TFP pool I want my equipment to look the same way!

    Unless you are talking about sanding, buffing and waxing, an easy quick shine can be had by using: Marvell Mystery Oil. You can find it at home improvement stores, auto supplies, Amazon, etc. Quickest shine and easiest bang for the buck. If you want a mirror shine, you will have to use some elbow grease and go the other route.

Hayward H200 Heater. Aux Pump for pressure side robot. (2) skimmers opposite of each other mid-pool, (1) bottom drain, (2) returns on opposite ends of pool lengthwise.

    I noticed my ladders had some water spots today.

    From the S.R. Smith website:
    Maintenance Schedule
    Daily All stainless steel pool rails should be rinsed with fresh water each day.

    Weekly Wash all surfaces with fresh, warm water and a mild soap. Our recommendation is Bon Ami.
    Use a soft cloth to gently scrub stubborn spots.
    Rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
    Dry completely with a soft cloth.
    Optional: Apply a thin layer of a high-quality automotive wax for added protection.

    As Needed Remove any visible signs of rust or staining with a nylon brush.

    Cartridge Filter
    Floor drains, 2 skimmers, 3 return lines (2" plumbing ultra-flex PVC)
