I had posted last year about the rust issue on my Frontier II diving board rust-on-diving-board-base-how-to-remove-prevent-t25474.html and ended up having it sprayed with "rhino hybrid". It works well so far, no rust or anything but I have no idea when ti will start cracking and I may be back to square one.
My pool deck is cracking in the area near the diving board and my builder will be removing the cracked concrete / repouring in that area. This means that, if I want, I can get another diving board but I have to pay it out of pocket. Does anyone think that the upgrade to the SR Smith salt diving board would be worth it? I'd have to pay ~$1100 or so for that and while I'm not pinching pennies or anything this money could sure go elsewhere if I knew that the frontier II and rhino hybrid spray would last a long time. The way I see it, if I don't upgrade it will rust next year but if I do it would have lasted a long time..
Is the SR Smith salt friendly system really rust proof? It still has a spring and that's what rusted on my frontier II (the base is the spring on the Frontier II).
