    Pool Slide Water Ports Scratch people

    Hi Guys,
    We have a pool slide that I'm not sure of the type but attached a photo. The water ports on the sides are like a cheese grater. We have had two people get scratched when going down and rubbing on them. Are there any caps or new ports that won't scratch people?

    Thanks!

    If the holes in the ports are just jagged or sharp I'd sand them with some fairly fine sand paper (~220 grit) to smooth up the edges.
