    Pool steps looking worn

    Hey everybody,

    Got my pool looking good thanks to TFP. But now new issue

    The pool was installed in 1979. So it's old. I've noticed some rust spots on the steps and I suspect it's from nail heads starting(or finishing) to poke through the fiberglass. I guess I know this problem isn't going to be cheap. My question is should I attempt to repair the stairs myself next year when I open the pool. Or should I wait and shell out the extra how many thousand when I have a new liner installed. I was hoping to get 3 more years out of the current liner.

    I can post pictures tomorrow if you're interested.

    *mods feel free to move this thread if you think it belongs somewhere else.

    Your water looks great.

    Don't know the source for those rust spots. Could you lower the water level enough to touch them up with a bit of epoxy paint? Might get you by until you replace liner.
