    plastic and paint

    Hi guys and gals, I'm in the process of changing liner colors, leaning toward tan/sand/brownish. Has anyone here painted their bottom drain covers,eyeball fittings, and skimmer inlets? Thanks in advance. Ernie

    I have a saying about spray painting pool fittings. "It lasts long enough to get paid".

    Is there any reason you can't replace these fittings with ones the color you want?

    WHAT HE SAID!! Paint doesn't work.

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!

    I agree, replace instead of repainting. It won't last under water.
