    Does re-plastering decrease pool depth?

    If I have my pool re-plastered, I was told that they put in some adhesive (Bond Kote) and add the new plaster on top. Does that decrease pool depth and by how much?

    They should chip out the old plaster and apply new, therefore retaining almost the same volume as the original.

    Thanks. The cheapest PB i found just told me that the way he applies the new plaster will add about 1/4" to 1/2" to the existing plaster. Does that sound right?

    Then your new plaster is being held on by your old disintegrating plaster.
    Not the base I would want.

    How thick is a layer of Bond Kote? And how thick is a layer of plaster?

    Roughly 1/2" total,
    BondKote hardly measurable.
