You do not want to let pool surface rust spots linger because the rust will grow. It will then enlarge the area of any necessary rust repairs along with further damaging the underlying rebar that may continue to breakdown possibly causing further damage the structure of your pool, hot tub, spa, or water feature.
Pool Rust Repair In San Diego Explained
Pool surface rust spots can occur for multiple reasons. One common reason that pool rust spots occur is due to some type of metal entering the pool from an outside source. This may be from a nail from the roof, grinding of metal materials, or even rust spots can occur from iron-based fertilizers that homeowners and landscapers use to fertilize lawns and gardens. These pool rust spots are usually superficial as long as the material does not sit in the same spot for any length of time.
To resolve this type of pool rust, you would want to have that area of the pool, hot tub, spa or water feature polished with a polishing system. This type of pool polishing system can remove this type of rust stain without damaging the surface material and only remove the discoloration. When looking to have your pool polished, always make sure to have a licensed professional perform this work to prevent any unnecessary damage to the surfaces.
The other more serious reason for having pool surface rust spots is due to water getting to the rebar structure of your swimming pool, hot tub, spa, or water feature. When this happens the water and chemicals start to corrode the rebar enabling the rust to grow and spread through the shell. Once this starts, it will eventually make its way up to the surface exposing the surface rust. Pool rust spots are the most common though most things that are built to hold water will be reinforced with some sort of rebar reinforcement.
Once the rust issue is exposed, you will want to get the rust spot repairs performed as soon as able. As stated above, when surface rust pots occur, itis damaging the underlying surface materials that over time will create a much bigger problem. Often when pool rust spots occur the water is following a straight line along the rebar and will cause additional pool rust spots to pop up. The water is looking for somewhere to travel and if it hits any exposed rebar, it will continue to break down the metal. This is why we are often performing multiple pool rust repairs on the same swimming pool. When pool or ho tub owners wait a little too long to get the problem fixed is when we typically see multiple pool rust spots.
