    Input on cracks

    been in my house for a few months. we have an inground SW pool that was recently refinished, however the tiling along the top apparently was not. the tile runs from under the pool deck topping to about 6" down, about half and half with the water line. I have seen quite a few cracks running parallel with the deck along the top of the tile and also some areas of grout missing. I assume I need to get this corrected. Do I need to have someone come in and re-do all the tile and grout...or is there a product that I could use to replace some holes and fill/waterproof the cracks? the cracks are about wide enough to insert a house key into

    Can you post some pictures? there commonly is a gap there, and little plastic strips are used to cosmetically fill it. Missing grout isn't going to hurt anything, but you could fix it if it bothers you.
