OK sorry I haven't been on the board in awhile, the wood/pellet stove industry is HOT this year (bad pun)
I decided after getting earlier advice from Jason, etc. on the board (and my PB) that I'm going to give it a shot this winter and keep the pool open. So I got everything balanced and ready to cut my pump time back, and...I tried and tried and can't get my rails or ladder out! (I wanted to take them out so I can put my cover on long enough for all the leaves to fall, then take the cover off for the winter).
This is my first year with a SWG, and the fittings that the ladder fits into have a gray/white flaky type of corrosion all over them, so I don't know if the salt in the water could have corroded the fittings and caused the ladder (and my pool rails) to get stuck, but for whatever reason, they're stuck fast. I took the bolts completely out (no problem there), and even whacked on the ladder with a rubber mallet, but nothing will budge.
So does anyone in the industry (or anyone who has run into this) have any suggestions?
