closed my SWG pool yesterday - went pretty smooth but....
ladder and handrail were hard to remove. The Alum pockets in the cement are kinda rough looking (pitted) and the ladder / rail tubes are filled with a white slimy jelly / goo stuff that needs powerwashed out. I think it is salt related but don't know. pool is 2 yrs old and it wasn't there last october at closing?!
any thoughts on what it is, how to prevent it, how to keep the pockets from deteriorating further and how to treat the rest of my stuff to prevent salt damage?
