Chipped spa step. How to repair?

Sep 23, 2011
Hi guys. My spa step chipped and don’t know what to use to repair it. Is there a specific glue? Can I do it under water? Or do I have to make the water level lower?

I also have some pop outs (is that what they’re called)? Would I be able to use the same fix?Is it same for the grout that is starting to crack?

You lost some serious plaster. It is going to take some sculpting and artistry to rebuild those curves. You will need to lower the water. You can get the basic patch product at...

then you will need some plaster application and sculpting tools.

@onBalance any advice?

It sounds like there are several very serious issues with this pool. I would have a professional come out and consult with them.

@onBalance oof serious issues? oh no! What do you think the issues may be? i have the chipped off pieces still so I was thinking of gluing them back together then putting it back.

Will the E-Z Patch fix the pop-outs too? There are maybe 3 of 4 small divots in the pool/spa.

Ok sounds good. I have a pool company coming out to install a pentair automation system. I'll have them look at the plaster :( I'm hoping it's not serious.
