I have a recently resurfaced gunite pool that cracks continuously. I'm in the pool about every 3 weeks or so putting pool putty on my nice colored gunite and it looks like ****. These hairline fractures are definitely cracked and leaking, tested with dye. My experience has been that the longer I let them go the worse the cracks get.
So, resurfacing the pool with new gunite did not stop the cracking. My next best guess is to get a vinyl liner for my inground pool in the hopes that it will stop cracking - or rather, it might still crack but the vinyl will stretch a tiny bit and it won't turn in to a leak.
Am I crazy or is this a good idea? This is 12,500 gallon pool with an 8ft deep end.
