    Stainless steel brush

    Does a SS brush damage the plaster in anyway in a in-groud pool?
    Should I use light force or can I go hard on it?

    Re: Stainless steel brush

    First hand experience here:
    If it's sold for a pool, no damage.
    A stiffer brush, as used to remove flaking paint, will gouge.
    And once you start losing bristles, toss it. They're **** to vacuum up.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    They should not be used on newer plaster though ... I think the first year? Someone will have to confirm.
