    Concrete cracks

    Hello all!

    Our salt water pool is about 4 years old now (we've only lived here for a year), but I think in SoCal with so little rain... The salt is cracking our concrete a bit (pictures below). I have a couple of questions:

    1) how can I fix these cracks? Is there something that works wells to fill them in?
    2) Can I seal the concrete in some way? If so, what type of product is good? Also, for the tile in the pool, can we seal the grout the same way we would for our tile floors inside?

    3) are there any other prevention tips I may be missing.

    As always, thank you!

    im no expert but the crack in the expansion joint happened where it was designed to crack but as far as the tile that beats me

    That's good to know! We also have a hole that somehow showed up- something must have fell just right. Wondering how we could patch that up/seal concrete. Thanks everyone!

    I have had the same hole pop up in my cement deck as well. I am worried about the water causing the hole to expand. Any suggestion on patching or fixing the hole?

    Just thought I'd follow up to see if anyone had some product recommendations?
