I have an in ground 18' x 36' (approx 26K gallons). it's gunite/concrete. Don't know age of pool but house was built in 1976. I've owned it 11 years. I have some small cracks and several larger chunks missing from the top along the water line. I want to repair those missing chunks and cracks and re-plaster. Any advice on which products to buy? I planned on power washing before I begin to help get rid of all the algae I had last year.

Who are you going to have replaster the pool? They would be the best ones to help you with the patching and such.

If you have battled algae in the past we can help you so you do not have to anymore! We teach Trouble Free Pool care using your own test kit and stuff you can buy from Target or Walmart! How cool is that?? Do a little reading here to see what it is all about:
