Diving board

shakushinnenJune 30, 2012

Hi,

This board is about 20 years old. The previous owner built the pool, and that was about 20 years ago. The board appears to be made of fiberglass. My question is.... do these boards have a lifetime; and does anyone know how long that might be?

Thanks,

....... john

shakushinnen,
Check the bolts on the stand and the bolts that attach the board to the stand for rust. Check the board for cracks at the bolt holes and at the fulcrum. This is the point that the board flexes most.
If you have cracks at at either of these locations on the board then it is time to replace.
Most bolts will have some rust and stand bolts may not be visable if you have a fiberglass stand.
Rusted bolts will present you with a judgement call. Lube the bolts and remove to determine the amount of rust damage to the threads. Good luck.
