Plaster keeps getting worse - water seems balanced

Hi Members,

Summer has ended and my first experience owning a pool has been bittersweet. I think I finally got my water chemicals somewhat balanced but I am noticing a deteriorating plaster week after week. I am leaving a link to my pool's history for this Summer, looking for some comments and recommendations. I am thinking of doing some re-plaster work before next pool season but I am wondering whether I am doing anything wrong. Pictures attached. BTW, the pool is 15 years old and as far as I know, was never replastered.

Your water chemistry looks fine. You just have old plaster that is showing its age.
Hi Allen, thanks for the comments. Is it "normal" to see a rather quick deterioration within 6 months? Also, do you know if it is adviceable to do a replaster during fall/winter or is it better winter/spring? There isn't much of a Fall or Spring seasons around here to be honest, temps went from 90s to 60s within two days, and I expect to move from the 60s to 90s in April/May next year...

I can't see what you consider quick deterioration to judge.

Also, do you know if it is adviceable to do a replaster during fall/winter or is it better winter/spring? There isn't much of a Fall or Spring seasons around here to be honest, temps went from 90s to 60s within two days, and I expect to move from the 60s to 90s in April/May next year...
I don't know Texas climate. As long as the temperature is between 50 and 90 it is good weather to plaster. We have lots of Texas members who would know better then me.
