    I posted this on, but got no replies, so I thought I would post it here. I tore down an old gazeebo and was able to salvage some 8' 4X4s. I am wanting to use them to build some pieces of structure for my pond but they have been painted white and it is chipping off in some places. My question is, will the white paint harm the fish or the water any? thanks for the info.

  2. I'm not sure, but I doubt it does them any good. Did you try taking them to a car wash and using the power washer on them? If it's already flaking off, maybe that take the rest off.
