Thread: Replacing In Concrete Ladder Anchors

    Replacing In Concrete Ladder Anchors

    The ladder anchors on my pool deck definitely need to be replaced this year.

    I'm going Bronze due to salt, and I know that there is special anchoring concrete to replace what I cut out, but I am unsure about the cut out process itself.

    1. Should I cut out a square around the old anchor, or use a core drill to make a circle?

    2. How much space should I cut out around the old anchor?

    3. Am I right in thinking I need to find some metal after I cut out the old anchor to rebond the new anchor?

    Thanks in advance,

    Cutting a square may prove problematic. I would use a core drill.

    You don't need much space at all around the new anchor.....1/2 in would be easy to work with if you can get a drill bit that size

    I believe the bonding wire will be attached to the old anchor. That may be a bear to save enough of it to attach to the new. Others may have an idea.
