I have a pool maintenance client that is looking to buy a new home with a pool. He had a pool inspector visit for his inspection & he found a small piece, (maybe 3 inches) of rebar exposed on one of the steps. Shouldn't he be concerned about that? If I understand correctly, it should not only be covered by plaster, but by a few inches of concrete as well, right?
The inspector says it's nothing to worry about...just know that he will need to re-plaster within a few years...and they can patch it & cover it at that time.
Help me help him. Thanks.
