    Repairing of Pool

    Hi, Im fairly new at maintaining pool, have a sport pool, 10996 gallons, pentair system. just finished SLAMing my pool and i was in it and noticed that the concrete deck where it meets the tile divider around the pool there are many holes as if it had crumbled away and continues to do so. I need to know what is the best product to use to patch these up? Im not very handy but willing to learn. Here are some pics below, any info would really appreciate, thanks!

    That is going to be challenging to patch and make look 1/2 decent.

    The two options I'd be most inclined to try would be mix up some concrete to a consistency like Peanut butter and smear it in. quickrete makes a milky substance that is intended to help new concrete adhere to old concrete (don't let it drip in the pool).

    second option that I would try would be a color matched caulk. This will make them stand out less...there are a number of possible problems with this "fix".

    So the Quickrete seems like the best option, whats the downside with the Caulk?
