    Plaster question

    Hello all,
    I have a question about plaster, my pool is about 8 months old and the dark grey plaster is getting a lot of small cracks, is this normal or should I be notifying my PB?

    Yes, it is pretty typical to get tiny hairline cracks in the paster especially if it was installed when it was fairly hot. Called crazing in the industry, it shouldn't be an issue as long as they have no real depth and are only cosmetic.
