Slippery Plaster Steps

Postby bigcitybabe » Sun 12 Jul, 2020 07:01

We have repainted our pool steps with exactly the same paint year after year. This year the steps are slippery and we've had several bad falls. We've tried to rough up the edges but the steps are still slippery. Help!

Try dry sand on the paint before it dries

Thanks, Denniswiseman. Hoping to find a solution that doesn't require us to significantly drain the pool to correct particularly now that Dallas, Texas is experiencing 100 degree days.
