plumbing paint?

Postby jtindisguise » Tue 27 May, 2008 13:57

The above-ground pipes of my pool’s plumbing appear to be painted with an off-white paint that is now showing some age. A few locations where the fittings are glued together the glue, and area around it, is turning dark brown, almost black. Can I fix this? Is there a paint or protectant I can purchase to remedy this? I thought about planting a tree to shade the area but I'm concerned about long term roots interfering with the return lines and I dont want to build a box with screen around the equipment because scorpions may find a home there. Advice?
