    I contacted Sharkline the other day and they said I can get a gallon of touch up paint for my pool for $73. That was a conversation that just made me sad.
    Sharkline Reprieve 15x52 (3/14). Still using Intex 2650 Sand Filter with Hayward Power-Flo Matrix 3/4 HP pump (6/15). Solar Cover cut into strips for easy removal, (2) 2*10 Space Saver solar panels. Swim Jet HD Robot (by Aquabot) (3/15). Chlorine Liquidator (4 gal). 4 person hot tub. Hard pipe is the way to go for improved flow! Retired Lil Shark (3/15). Starite Max E Therm 333k BTU Propane Heater w/ 24 gal tank (7/15).

    Sound advice, but if that's epoxy paint, it's not really that far out of line.

    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!

    Would you recommend that I purchase from them? I have some scratches and nicks on the top rails from tree parts that have fallen off and hit them. After that quote, I was leaning towards a can of Rustoleum.
