    small pebble size chip/rust spot on fibreglass stairs...

    My pool has a set of fibreglass stairs and on one of the steps there is a small chip the size of a dime that has rust or discolouring to it.

    I tried the vitamin c pill and rubbing it on it but no luck in getting all of it off.

    Is there any white epoxy or silicone I can use to dab onto this spot to cover it? Nobody ever notices it but I do! draws my eyes to it and it must be easy to repair. Now the kicker. Can your recommend a treatment that I can put on this spot while underwater?! It is the very bottom step so not really interested in draining it down that far.

    I think there is some marine underwater epoxy that's white. You should be able to use that.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I picked up some of this today.

    It says you can can use it underwater so I'll try it out this week. Today's high was a fall like 70...yikes. I still kept the pool at 88 though...and swam.
