    found 2 hairline cracks in concrete around spillover spa

    I just noticed 2 hairline cracks where the concrete deck around the pool metts up with the spill over. Eachcrack is on either side of the overflow and almost inthe identical spot (mirror image). The pool os a vinyl steel construction and is just going into year 2.
    Should I be concerned at this point or is it just settling after 2 winters. Not sure if it caneffect the actual pool.
    What to do?

    As hard as they try, with contraction and expansion joints, the crete dudes can't stop the hairline cracks you're seeing

    Keep an eye on them periodically, but don't sweat them unless they grow

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
