    Fixing Leaking Pool

    We have a variety of leaks in our plaster pool. Leaks have been found around the 2 drains, 2 skimmers, and a few “random” cracks in the pool walls. Most of them have been patched by American Leak Detection. Unfortunately, the pool is still leaking and so they are continuing to find the leaks but, we know that this is a temporary fix. The pool has a tile line at the top and trim tile accenting all the steps. Could anyone give me some advice on how to proceed? Do we need to tear it out and start again (we would throw in the towel), replaster (can you do that with a tile line and accent tiles on floor and edge of steps), regunite?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We had a terrible time putting this pool in and it seems to be a money pit.
