Just an update on the ongoing clean-up at the baths, this photo shows the baths today after one section has been repainted and a pressure wash has been done on part of the outside pool wall that is now ready for a coat of paint :D

Brian - what a difference the painting makes
to the Baths.
Is the next stage not going to be too
dangerous to attempt?

:you ejit:

I have a plan for painting the outside.

get one boat

at high tide, sail up to edge of baths.

place paintbrush onto baths

wait for tide to go out.


Might take a while though :rotfl:

Brian - That's not a bad idea,
but how long will the tide stay out.
You see I'm worrying already and you haven't
even started. :-S

Have you considered the type of paint you'll use to finish the outside ?

The growth of mussels and algae on the outer surface not only becomes unsightly in a short period of time but can also lead to structural weakness over the years....I used to work for a company that designs power generators that would be deployed in the ocean and convert wave motion into electricity...it was very important to have the right paint system in place to inhibit growth of matrine organisms.... the paint we used had to be dark in colour and it included special chemicals/metls to ward off mussels etc... a simple "white wash" will fade very quickly and be covered in algae/mussels in no time.

There are lots of paint systems available that will provide a very long lasting coverage....but they are NOT cheap.

As everyone has volunteered to do this work ( to the shame of NMDC... :angry: ) , maybe the council could support all your efforts by supplying the proper paint for the job @=)
