    Hair line crack in fiberglass..pic

    So I was out at the pool and I came across this crack in the fiberglass by the seats on the deep end. It is hairline at best doesn't seem to move when I touch around it. Should I try sealing it with something?

    I've not noticed any on mine, but I'm not sure I would notice anything that small. Especially if it was under water. Also, my FG is not a solid color anywhere. How did you find that????
    I don't know the answer to you question either.

    I was cleaning around the outside of the pool and tried to wipe it off but it obviously would not wipe
    No one else has fiberglass cracks??? Great!

    Check out Overtons Marine site. Fiberglass and Gel coat section. There is also a marine repair kit available that allow you to duplicate the pattern/texture.

    I have a bunch of little scratches like that on my spa. Definitely not cracks though.

    Ive asked the question here and have been pointed to some good sites / sources for epoxy / fiberglass coating sites. If it gets worse Ill look into it more closely. But for now its so superficial its hardly worth investigating further. Good luck.
