Q&A PROBLEM SOLVER

PROBLEM:
Our pool is in good shape structurally but has too many coats of built-up paint that need to be removed. We'd like to find an inexpensive alternative to re-plastering or other fancy finishes.

SOLUTION:
Two coats of Ramuc EP HI Build Epoxy offer up to eight years and more protection. It's the low-cost alternative to re-plastering at about a third the cost. No need to schedule costly repainting and refilling of your pool every year. EP HI Build is readily available from Ramuc distributors nationwide in three colors. It is VOC-compliant and dries to a hard, satin finish that is easy to clean and maintain.

PROBLEM:
Outdoor surfaces will crack, fade and sink because of weather conditions and subsurface movement.

SOLUTION:
Swiss Flex all-weather court surface has patented tile features to prevent warping and distortion of the tiles, to eliminate maintenance issues and annual repair costs. An exclusive oval lug interlocking design allows for expansion and contraction up top 1/8-inch per tile, to accommodate temperature changes, which ensures the court is playable in all weather conditions. The tile will also flex to accommodate imperfections on the existing court. Additionally, UV stabilizers eliminate color fading.

PROBLEM:
We want to convert from artificial turf to real grass.

SOLUTION:

Both have excellent cold tolerance, pest and disease resistance, color, texture, and density. SeaIsle 1 performs well under low-light conditions found in domed stadiums. Nothing beats real turf for playability and sure footing.

PROBLEM:
Our locker bottoms are rusting through.

SOLUTION:
The problem of rusting locker bottoms in wet areas is too often handled by ignoring the problem until after the parts have rusted through, by replacing the locker bottoms, or by ordering heavier gauge parts or parts made of galvanized or stainless steel. Penco Products, Inc. offers a new solution. Penco lockers can now be equipped with solid plastic bottoms manufactured in various sizes. These parts, pre-drilled to fit Penco lockers, are available as inserts or replacements for existing lockers or they can be ordered with new lockers.
