Hi everyone. First of all... Thanks to everyone for all of the great information posted here on this site. I think I have spent about 3 straight weeks reading this site before and during the construction of our first pool.
Now on to our problem. The pool was filled with water about 2 months ago. The pool guys just finished up some more work around the pool when we noticed the decking start to crack a little in one spot. No big deal- concrete always cracks a little. Then the crack grew...and grew... and lifted... and grew some more. Then we noticed a small vertical crack in the plaster. Then the crack grew. Then within the week 4 more vertical cracks showed up all around the pool. Two of them are directly over places where they epoxied & stapled some cracks in the gunite before they plastered. There are now 3 cracks that are about a thumbnail wide and 2-3" long and 2 cracks about a penny wide spidering all the way to the bottom of the pool. (see one of them below - that is a quarter in the pics)
The installer is away on a medical emergency and I'm just wondering... how bad is this? Any suggestions?
The coin in the pics is a quarter
