I am interested in the pros & cons of ekodeck (from Bunnings) around pools...especially the cons. Any recommendations for other eco friendly composite products for pool decks?

Pros? can't think of any
Cons? 1. It's from Bu....gs
2. I'd never use any composite for my own decks as it will look crap after use. Any scrathes/stains etc can't be sanded out and refinished. I am yet to see a good looking 5yr or older composite deck.
I like the theory and would probably use composite materials for battens but at this stage I am yet to be convinced of it being a good choice in decking....and if the green shed sell it well it will be a cheap and nasty version IMHO.

At work we had replaced a timber bridge over a water feature and link between two buildings with a composite board (big brand name but can't remember just now). It is slippery when wet so I imagine it would not be ideal around a pool.
Stevoh, you really got a thing for Bu....gs eh

My experiences numerous stores: bad service, bad advice, cheap and nasty products, but hey that's just IMHO.
