I have bullnose brick supported by a metal plate over the skimmer entrances.
The pool is about 25yrs old, converted to salt maybe 5yrs ago (I've been here 1 yr). 3500ppm
The metal plates are severly corroded, staining the tile, big rust chunks fall off from time to time.
My worries are:
1) structural - will this make the bricks less strong? it would sure be sucky if they broke when someone stepped over the skimmer
2) water chem - this must be putting some metal in the pool
Should I worry about it, and if so, what should I do?
Sorry for the lousy pictures, best I could do without dunking the damera
