So, we have a 13000 gallon in-ground gunite pool that went on line in May, 2011. in late 2014, after he passed away, we adopted #2 son's Marine service dog, an English Lab. No worries until Harold discovered his favorite game; The Ball. He lives for The Ball It's such a big deal for him that we've renamed it The Precious, as in 'give us The Precious!' (so we can throw it again!). It NEVER gets old. But, to the problem:
We have wedding cake steps at the shallow end and I noticed this year that as he pushes off on the lip of the second step to swim after the ball, the edge has started to crumble a bit. I would have thought that plaster was pretty tough, but we're talking probably thousands of cycles of chasing the ball (er, The Precious!) and his claws seem to be taking a toll. You might as well ask the sun not to shine as ask him not to get wet.
I would like to stay ahead of the deterioration and wonder what would work better; calling the plaster contractor back for a repair or? I seem to remember seeing a hydraulic plaster out of the corner of my eye during a trip to the local Leslie's. But, since I wasn't there for that, I didn't pay much attention to the product.
