Moved in about 2 years ago and got this awesome pool. However, I'm starting to notice some etching and plaster wearing away. Pool is 15 years old. From the pictures is it time to get a resurface? I know I should just call and get some estimates, Roughly what are we talking here in terms of cost??? I'm in Houston. Are we talking 5k or 10k or 15k??? Also would they have to replace all the tile around the pool or can they salvage that? I assume the tile on the stairs would have to go. I assume I have different surfaces to choose from as well. is there any long-term damage to the pool from not resurfacing and just letting it get a little worse before I get around to it?
The first picture of the shallow area is the worst. Otherwise the bottom looks pretty good throughout the pool. There are only 2 quarter size spots in the whole pool where i can clearly see the dark surface (gunnite or cement) under the plaster starting to show through. The sides have that etching look to them where it looks like there's a stain, but its clearly just the finish wearing away.
Thanks for any advice or comments!
Shallow spot looks the worst.
You can see the etching in the walls
