    Re: Cracks in NEW Pool plaster

    My neighbors had a problem with their first plaster job. Their pool builder had a second guy come out to re-plaster it. I made sure to use the second plaster guy when I remodeled my pool. Most pool builders have a warranty on the plaster as long as you follow all their start up instructions.

    I think you need to press the builder for an equitable solution ... best solution might be a replaster job as I am not sure how widespread the cracks are.

    Re: New plaster

    I would start documenting with photos and emails just in case things go sideways with the builder. Hopefully there will be no need for a paper trail but better to start just in case. Also I see you have a couple posts around this issue I know it is stressful and you are trying to get information but please try to keep to one thread so information and suggestions don't get scattered.

    Re: Cracks in NEW Pool plaster

    Thanks for your feed back. The Pool Company is going to replaster the pool. There were cracks in the shell that they were aware of that the did not address. The cracks are running all over the place. We are going to chip away and repair cracks in the fall and replaster in the spring is the game plan. I think their concern is that we are going to have more cracks. However, they are not saying it.
