The many posts to this forum concerning painting a pool has us not recommending that process. It is not a long lasting solution typically resulting in peeling and degradation within a couple years.I would go with an epoxy pool paint that is sprayed on. It will give you a fiberglass-type feeling and will be much smoother than even plaster. It will also cost a lot less.
dont tell me that. I have been staying low all winter also and have been stressing over it. How old is the plaster?My plaster has cracks, I think it froze since the cracks are where I had dropped the water level to.. About 1' below tile . We had a lot of cold weather in Atlanta this winter.
Jim - Step away from the ledge. Her pool is older and close to needing a new plaster job already. You'll be fine.dont tell me that. I have been staying low all winter also and have been stressing over it. How old is the plaster?
