    EASE OF REMOVING IGP HANDRAILS

    I know some people have a hard time removing their handrails in the fall, so thought I would post some good results I had with mine. Someone on this website mentioned using Marine Grease on the lower portions of each rail that gets inserted into the opening in the concrete. I bought some of the grease at Walmart and applied it liberally on each rail this spring, as well as on the bolt and "lever thingy" down in each opening of the concrete. This fall, removing the hand rails was a piece of cake! It worked like a charm. I highly recommend it to anyone with this problem. Sure makes things a whole lot easier and eliminates the need for the twisting, hammering with a rubber hammer, cussing, etc. Lots less stress.
    18,000 gal, 18x32 IGP, vinyl liner, 3 to 5.5ft depth. One inlet/skimmer (Aqua Genie), one main drain. Hayward Pro Series Sand Filter w/filtration rate of 20 GPM/FT, Two-Speed Pentair Whisperflo 1 HP pump, Natural Gas Hayward H200 pool heater, Aquabot T2 (200 Series) Robotic Pool Cleaner (my best friend), Automatic Electric Pool Cover (2nd best friend).

    I would add a caution to clean them out well and apply new grease in the spring. All the dirt that gets stuck in the grease over the winter could help bind the rails in place after a few years.
