Do not allow fiberglass to be used as a repair for plastic steps, regardless of the type plastic (rovel, weatherpro, loran, centrex) all are ABS plastic and fiberglass cannot form a permanent bond with ABS. Only Methyl Methacrylate Adhesives will bond ABS properly.Yes. I take it this in a inground vinyl pool.. With the pool drained most anyone good with fiberglass repaires can refinish..

How do you repair leaking swimming pool steps?

AnswerDrain the water out to the point where the steps needing repair are no longer under water. You will need to re-plaster them, let is cure (and dry) then refill the pool. The easiest way to repair a leak in pool steps is with a two part epoxy. This is readily available at your local pool supply store. First identify where the leak is. Than enlarge the hole with a screw driver. Mix only enough epoxy to do the repair and push the mixture into the hole and smooth it out. You do not have to drain the pool to do this. The above assumes that this is a concrete pool or an inground liner pool with fiber glass steps.
