How to Repair Fiberglass Steps in Vinyl Liner Swimming Pools

Do you need new fiberglass steps for your vinyl liner swimming pool?

You do if they look anything like the the steps in the first photo below.

Have you investigated the cost to put new steps into your pool?

Would you believe $5,000.00 to $12,000.00?

Does about $600.00 sound better?

Dear Bill,

I just wanted to write you this letter to thank you for all of the assistance that you and your staff gave to me. I was the one that had the vinyl-lined pool with fiberglass steps. After 28 years of sun, chlorine and northeast winters, my steps looked horrid. I had discoloration, peeling and several hair line cracks in the surface.

I also had a mysterious leak that always pointed back to the steps. I searched up and down the Internet for something to resurface them, and no one could help me. I even checked marine sites. Your product is amazing.

Since I was unable to rent a sandblaster at the local home center and a professional sandblaster was unable to do the job, I opted to sand them myself. I used a combination of a belt sander; drum sander and orbital sander to get into all of the nooks and crannies. It took a few hours but it was worth it. Since I had never used a product like this before, I only mixed a quart at a time and I also had my wife handing me whatever I needed to save time. I am glad that I did, since the steps had angles, one quart at a time was perfect.

After the first coat, my wife (the critic) was really impressed. Now that they are done, I am so very pleased at the way the steps turned out. The non-skid powder worked great. I even had some left, so I added it to the oil-based paint that I used for the coping.

I can’t thank you enough. You saved me a lot of money. If I were to remove the steps, put in a wall and use drop-ins, it would have cost me over $4,000.00. If I wanted to replace the steps with new ones, it would have cost me almost $10,000.00.

Also, there was no guarantee that the new hardware would line up with the old. For a 28-year-old pool, that is a chance that I did not want to take. I am also including some before, during and after photos. I hope that you enjoy them. I was not sure if your servers would accept E-mailed photos so I printed them. If you want them sent via E-Mail, just give me a buzz.

Respectfully, Peter Brown Nutley, NJ
