    Lid trays for coping

    They mortared the stones directly on top of the rust, I still don’t know how to open the coping trays and cannot find any YouTube videos. 😩

    Lid trays for coping

    The new pool with rust saga continues. The coping stones were mortared to the lid trays. One of the trays has been left uncovered and now is covered in rust. I thought the coping stones were supposed to be lifted off of the lid trays and then the lid tray could be opened. Any ideas on why this...

    Thanks!

    Rust on new fiberglass stairs!

    Our pool builder actually got back to us and he thinks that because the landscapers were cutting the pavers next to the pool that some of the metal could be getting in and causing the issue. Any suggestions on what I should do? Would adding a scale and metal control product help?

    Rust on new fiberglass stairs!

    Although I will say the slide is leaking and the basin we placed underneath to catch the leaking water is now filled with rust particles so I guess it’s always a possibility.

    Rust on new fiberglass stairs!

    None! The only thing it could possibly be is if there was rust inside the tubing of our brand new slide but I would highly doubt that.

    Rust on new fiberglass stairs!

    Hello, I had posted a while back about there being some rust on a new railing. I noticed today there are a few spots of rust on my new fiberglass pool stairs, also on the stairs that aren’t even close to the rail. Is rust really to be expected for a new fiberglass pool? It is a Thursday pool. My...

    Rust

    I’m not sure what a pipe clamp is but the rail is attached through the coping so it is only a couple of inches from the pool. I don’t think there is actually rust on the pavers, there is an area that looks a little bit darker but I think that is the grout they were using to attach the pavers to...

    Rust

    All the chemistries are within normal range except the total alkalinity is high at 150. It is hard for me to get that down right now because our slide has a leak in it so I do not have a great way to aerate if I drop the pH. I ended up just calling the manufacturer myself and they said it...

    Rust

    He is saying it is because our pool is salt (which he did not want us to get). Does anyone have any advice on what to say? Our chemistry is fine.

    Rust

    Hello, our pool actually isn’t done yet. We have noticed some areas of rusting. Is this to be expected? Is there anything we can do to prevent it?
