    Should be worried about my pool?

    My pool had a crack and I was suggested to put staples and replaster.
    After they put the staples in they said the staples didn't need sealant or anything. The plaster will fill and hard everything like rock.
    After they finish replaster I noticed couple leaks coming throw the plaster inside the pool. They try to dry them but nothing seem stop the leak they are filling the pool like that saying the water pressure will stop the leak and cute the plaster.
    Im not to sure about it. What should I do. Pool is starting to fill up now!

    Generally the process is to clean out the cracks, staple and grout or mortar the cracks then seal with plaster. That process can vary. Do you have pictures of what you started with and each stage of the work. Without complete pictures it's impossible to give you much more than a guess.

    We did maybe 3 or 4 pools with "staples". Had to go back and redo them all (without staples). Sometimes, the only way to find out if a type of fix will work is to try it. In the case of staples, they don't work. Epoxy injection seems to be the best fix to correct these types of problems, at least in our area.
