    Brand new pool...with a hole in the plaser

    Pool is less than a month old. Noticed a small hole about the circumference of a pencil today. Other than the frustrating part of not having a brand new pool that is "perfect", is this something I need to worry about? Is it common?
    Recently added muriatic acid to pool- while I brushed shortly afterwards I am paranoid that somehow the acid ate a hole in the plaster- is that even possible?
    I know the pool is still under warranty but is a small hole like this something that pool companies will typically fix or, again, is it an expected and 'acceptable' imperfection?
    I had trouble from beginning to end with this pool company and the thought of getting into it with them yet again stresses me out.

    I highly doubt your acid had anything to do with it ... unless you poured a lot of acid directly on top of where the hole is.
    It could have just been an air bubble, but that sounds bigger than that. How deep is the hole?

    I would certainly consider contacting the pool company to see what they say.

    It is just below one of the spots where I poured acid, but I followed the instructions from this website- pouring small amounts at a time and this spot is just below one of the returns so it doesn't seem likely. I haven't felt the hole yet but from looking at it, it looks the depth of a pencil eraser.
    Thanks.

    They missed a spot, sorry. The acid didn't do that.
