After 4 years, the top half of the housing on my filter has fine fiberglass hairs sticking out of the composite material. I presume this is from breakdown of the outer portion of the composite, due to exposure to the Sun. This makes the housing impossible to handle without getting the glass fibers stuck in your hands. Is there a recommended paint I can use on the exterior to protect it from further breakdown? Possibly Krylon Fusion, since it is made for use on plastics?

A  Answered on 6/18/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Eric O., I would recommend visiting your local paint store for recommendations on what type of paint to use if that's the direction you want to go, since we do not carry that type of paint.

How fast can I get it to Ft Lauderdale?

A  Answered on 7/22/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

These look to currently ship ground from Michigan so you would be looking at approximately 3-5 business days.
