Thoroughly clean all areas with a abrasive cleaner then rinse with water to get the grit off of the surface. This is the best product on the market as far as what you can buy from a hardware store. Mine has been on six months and im very happy with the result. Will this kit cover the whole one piece shower/tub enclosure?
It will take at least 3 days before you can stand to be in that bathroom.The next day 3rd coat was not nearly as smooth as the first 2.
The finished product looks like a paint job with imperfections, ie. I have two cast iron tubs to refinish, one is blue the other was pink (60’s). However, the fumes were so strong, don’t expect to occupy any room surrounding the bathroom for up to 3 weeks. It applies a smooth, porcelain-like finish that resists mildew growth for long-lasting protection and beauty. Specially formulated to provide excellent adhesion, durability and color retention in high moisture areas.

Yes if there is any rust it must be sanded down and try to remove the stain by sanding until it is almost not visible. Then roll on 2 -3 smooth coats waiting 1 hour in between coats. I am guessing it will "flow" well if brushed on and the resulting finish will also be smooth. Remove the fixtures and tape off pipes and walls, shower doors (remove if you can). Check the box for the right kind of roller and brushes!
Remove all caulking because nothing sticks to silicone caulking and you’re going to recaulk anyway. Rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth or even paper towels will remove what’s left. But it’s going to look almost as good at a much better price!
The one can covered the entire area because it had a similar color underneath.
You only have 6 hours before the paint hardens in the can, so don’t wait long.
Sawing Utility Poles by woodweb.com
Some saw out very well, while others don’t – no real rhyme or reason why. Look the poles over very well, and still plan on hitting staples, nails and tacks. From my list you can see that not all poles are equal as far as strength. As far as sawing, pick a cool day so you can wear a long sleeve shirt with the wind at your back and a dust mask. Never even thought about dusk masks, but the sawdust sure don’t taste good in your lunch!
Both a concern about cancer-causing chemicals (often 1 to 10 years delay) as well as allergic reactions. Potentially, the area where you saw the poles could be a toxic waste site, depending on the preservative. I wonder if such poles would be good for use in a structure. Finally, preservative chemicals used for poles are not approved for use inside a structure because the vapors, or other releases, would not be healthy. Estimates were that the concentrations in the milk would have meant several pole barns would have had to have been eaten. I recently cut some creosote bridge timbers that were soaked pretty good. There is also some argument about what to use to lube the blade. If anything, the diesel mixture made the whole experience that much worse.
My employees still joke about if we are gonna go mill some poles today. They sold retail and also donated a lot of lumber to the city and park department. You’re wrong on how far the preservative penetrates the pole. Also built a couple of workbenches from it and painted with latex. To saw poles, you need to cut 4″ off the butt to get rid of the heavy treatment plus the staples and date stamp nails. Some people like the chocolate color of the treated wood and are disappointed when you open it up and it looks like a freshly sawn pole. Haven’t hit metal in any of this resawing for 4-5 years (usually saw about 12-40 hours of this stuff a year). I have been burnt up twice and no longer resaw creosote in the hot weather. A final comment – just because that creosote film on the water doesn’t kill you when you or your kids go swimming, it certainly doesn’t mean it is harmless. After all, there are plenty of other things we get exposed to that we can’t control. The creosote pine poles are known in the utility trades as “blackjacks” due to their appearance when new and leaching gobs of goo.

Poles harvested from urban areas are almost always peppered with small staples and nails at reachable height; the upper portion is usually easily cleaned up as the hardware was attached with 5/8″ bolts. Poles older than 30 to 40 years tend to be creosote treated. Utilities are beginning to understand that true disposal of their old poles will soon be the only way they can go – the process of selling or giving the old poles away will eventually be curtailed due to potential liability.
You should get many cuts out of a chainsaw blade, provided you do not hit metal.
You will see where a hole -. 75″ diameter bored and plugged near the ground line. As for why the utility retired the pole, sometimes the poles need to be upsized to accommodate more plant/additional utilities. The creosote is much easier to saw than penta or cca, not to mention the wood looks better. After you plane and poly the wood it shines and sills the smell.

I was going to put the creosoted ends back in the ground for my main posts after cutting them in half, and sawing some collar ties out of some of the others. I usually drip vegetable oil on the blade while sawing, which keeps the buildup down. I had a real close association with poles for about 10 years climbing them, drilling them, pulling splinters out, and sawing off the tops about 30′ above the ground. Certainly, sawing the poles has a risk of exposing yourself to chemicals – the green poles would be of great concern. Environmentally, this is much more serious than disposal of a pole, due to particle size. As we have stated many times before, check with local building inspectors for advice on whether they will approve. Unfortunately, this was discovered after the media blitz that somehow the cows had eaten the penta treated poles in the barn. I second what was said about waiting for a cool day to wear a long sleeve shirt. I save the sawdust and put it in the bottom of postholes and footings. Now if this stuff in the poles are so bad, how come they stick them in every creek/river crossing for bridges?
Some swear by diesel/barchain oil; others swear by soap or cooking oil.Got all kinds of impressive good press for keeping poles out of the landfill. I always thought the same as you – that it only goes in a couple of inches. My word of caution is to never use the lumber in a building that is lived in. The dust will collect on my wet t-shirt, the sweat dissolves it, and transfers it to your skin. In my experience, full length creosote treated poles are good as poles only and are best not sawn, as they are messy and make short work of a sharp blade for some reason. If you find a fencing staple, check upward in a straight line for others as the staples held a ground wire in place for much of the poles length.

Sawing is not a problem if you take the health precautions (clothing, masks, etc) and watch for metal on or in the poles. Bottom line: do not use resawn treated wood of any kind for interior applications. Watch out near where the ground line was for a pesticide treatment that may have been put into the pole after it was installed. Sometimes these poles are just fine as most utility companies do not reuse poles. They are easier to climb and this makes this line of work safer. Wear glasses and gloves and don’t saw when the winds is not at your back, as you must breathe occasionally. Creosote has been and will always be the best treatment for wood. Remember they are softer and safer, and last longer than the hard green (cca) that are saturated with cyanide and arsenate.
