    Plaster damage repair

    We have a fair amount of plaster damage that has developed over the past 2 seasons in our 25+ year-old pool. It's most pronounced on the walls, particularly at and closer to the surface. From my research on the forum, I think it's likely due to having the pH too low. Is there anything that can be done outside replastering? I'm wondering if using plaster patch would be at all feasible?

    Yes, low PH and etching could have contributed to that. At this point there isn't much, if anything to do. If it isn't leaking you can ride it out as long as you're willing. Once it starts leaking then it is time to replaster.
