    Didn’t water gunite for the first two days? Help

    We are having our pool refinished, and three days ago we had a Cabo shelf poured. I was told to water it twice a day for three days to help it cure. On the first day, tile guys ended up being down in the pool all day, and it didn’t get thoroughly watered (although they did use water in there, as...

    Cracks in every piece of coping

    A year ago we had our pool built in Southern California. Everything seemed to go fine on the day the poured concrete coping was put in place, weather was ideal and work seemingly was done patiently but efficiently (although I have no real experience with concrete so take those comments for what...

    Chip and Cracks at Bottom of Brand New Install

    My new fiberglass pool was installed about 2 weeks ago and I'm waiting for the contractor to come back next week to install the concrete. Yesterday I was looking at the pool and noticed a quarter size chip in the bottom of the pool with spider cracks radiating out from it. I met with the pool...

    Pool Cracks

    I've inherited a pool with a concrete base and fiberglass sides that. There are some relatively thin cracks in the shallow end. Are these just plaster cracks that can be filled in, or do I need to do any more intensive structural repairs? If they can just be filled in, how much would I expect to...

    Decking to tile to pebble...seap crack fix?

    Help with proper fix/product. Started with a suspected pool leak. Did't intend to pull tile off, but hollow sounds made me suspicious and the loose tile coincide with the sidewall cracks in pebbletec. Above each of those areas is an expansion gap in the decking. I'm no pro, but it seems to...

    Loose tile and cracks

    Perhaps I'm wasting my time and should just have my pool resurfaced, but I'm not there yet. We had to drain the pool to fix a crack in a bench area. That has been done and patched. Not a perfect match but I can live with it for now. Wife says we'll die in this house so I'm fine with it. :)...
