  • Coating diving board pedestal and springs

    I have a customer wanting to refinish a diving board pedestal and base (see pic). It's for a saltwater pool and will be subject to our extreme AZ UV. Has anyone out there done these or have any advice? Of particular concern is the repeated compression on the springs and whether the PC can handle this. I'm sure it's not much different from a coil spring in a car, but couple it with salt+H2O+UV and ???
    Thanks,

    Give it a good primer and clear for extra protection. I pc'd the rear springs on my Harley and they're doing fine.

      yep just like stated above primer and clear and you will be fine. I have coated front coil springs for a jeep and they get flexed to the extremes with no damage so I believe you will be fine.

        On a side note, I have never heard of a saltwater pool. What would be beneficial or desireable to have salt water in a pool?

          maybe you can do a textured coating on top so its not as slippery ?

                You float better, but I think the main reason is less chemicals in the pool, smells more like the ocean and possibly easier/cheaper to clean? There are a few of those salt water pools around here.

                  I would think it would be the other way around. Only reason why I say that is a salt water aquirium is more exspensive to maintain, but that was for young fish

                    In AZ, saltwater conditioned pools are very common-- although I don't like them. The salt is used by the chlorine generator-- the salt content in not high like the ocean. If you want to learn more: http://phoenix.about.com/cs/wet/a/saltpool01.htm

                    One question-- what primer would be best for this application? I have KL, but I expect the red oxide or zinc might me better?
