Within the last couple years i've developed a rust problem around the skimmer and inlet hose to my pool. I think i fixed why it got rusty, but not sure how to fix the mess. Almost hate to take skimmer off for fear of not being able to get it back on. Dont really want to make a new hole and patch that one. Do they make a special kind of paint I could put around it that mite help?

3M used to make some kind of paint that reacted chemically with the rust, but I can't seem to find the name. I did find this however....

"Dupli-Color® Rust Fix® destroys rust on contact by bonding and transforming it into a sandable and paintable surface. Sprays on clear and transforms into a black, metal protecting coating that prevents future rust from forming. Rust Fix saves you the time of sanding all the way down to bare metal and can be used with body filler and fiberglass."

So I would check at an auto parts store and see what they have.

I stumbled across a small bottle of something called "extend" by duro (if you google it, ignore the "male enhancement" pill sites.

This stuff is by Loctite.

Duro extend is a rust treatment that brushes on white and chemically reacts with rust to form a tough, black polymer barrier that locks out furture rust. Can be sanded and painted over with oil based paint adn lacquer.
