Hi, All. I just recently purchased a home with a pool. We noticed a hole in the plaster today (pictures attached), but not sure what it could be from. The pool was empty when we noticed it. When looking at it, it looked like there was a line of water seeping through the plaster. Could someone please identify what may have caused this? Thank you!

Welcome to TFP.

I looks like it was caused by an impact. A bullet hole or pellet gun?
Thank you!

I was thinking it looked like a bullet hole of some sort but wasn’t sure. I went down a rabbit hole last night trying to search the internet for any other causes. This wouldn’t happen to look like a rebar rust issue does it?

Rebar rust does not cause a hole, just a dark stain in the plaster.

And you can see the splatter of some impact opening the hole from the surface inward.
