I am in the need of some expert advice from you guys. We purchased our home about 6 years ago which also had a pool and spa. Due to circumstances beyond our control (hurricane Katrina), we did not return to live in the house until a year and half ago (the house was being rented previously to our return).
When we returned to live in the house we noticed that there was cracking around the exterior of the spa. The white calcium buildup in the front of the spa was there when we bought the house, but to a much smaller extent.
The pool and spa was built in 2002, as far as I know.
I am attaching some photos and wanted to see what your opinion was as to what should be done.
Does anyone know what would be causing the tiles to start cracking and then showing the white film seeping out of the cracks?
I will be meeting with contractors to come and give us some bids to replace the tiles with new tile. Is there anything you would recommend I ask them when I am discussing the work to be done?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
