I've been trying to get quotes on repairing a leaking crack in my pool. It's amazing the number of pool repair people who either never send the estimate, or don't show up. Why are they in the business if they don't want the work?
Anyway, of the two estimates (over phone) I was able to get, one involved using the concrete staples to stabilize and cover with hydraulic cement.
The other would use a "rubber" type cement (he didn't call it epoxy) that would supposedly flex and not fail as fast due to the ongoing soil dynamics around my pool (which would cost many many thousands to fix). His claim was that if you use staples, you'll just get a new crack right next to the old one.
Both are in the same neighborhood for cost. Is there a preferred method?
