    Is this a problem with plaster?

    The Wet Edge installer came by, dove down and plastered the missing spots. He said there must have been something on the gunite that stopped the plaster from adhering to those spots. 7 year warranty on the plaster so will get them back if I find any more.

    Is this a problem with plaster?

    No rebar, it seems to be bare gunite. I counted 4 more smaller spots nearby. Bit annoying since it looks like pieces of dirt from the surface, but is it likely to leak or peel off bigger chunks?
