Concrete pools typically don’t require frequent maintenance. Unlike vinyl liners, concrete pools aren’t easily damaged by pets or equipment. However, having your pool inspected for damage to the plaster or concrete could save you a lot of money at a later date. If you’ve noticed that your concrete is very rough or that it’s more difficult to brush your pool, it’s time to replaster your pool. It’s also necessary to replaster your pool if you notice cracks or damage in the plaster. Pool replastering should always be performed by an experienced professional.
Alan Smith Pools employs professionals who are knowledgeable about all of the challenges that can happen when plaster and concrete pools are damaged. Alan Smith Pools offers pool remodeling and swimming pool replastering services in multiple areas in southern California, such as Orange CA.
Sometimes a small crack isn’t as harmless as it appears to be on the surface of the plaster. Depending on the depth and spread of the crack, you might have to consider a complete pool replastering. Rather than overlooking a small crack, it’s best to call a swimming pool contractor to inspect the plaster for further damage. A professional may see signs of degeneration that you’re unable to see.
In many cases, plaster and concrete will crack in an area that isn’t readily visible. You may not find a crack in the surface of your pool, but you may notice that bubbles are rising to the surface of the water. Those bubbles can be a sign that you have a foundation crack in the plaster of your pool, and they almost always signify a leak. If water continues to leak out of your pool, it can erode the earth under the concrete, possibly leading to a collapse. Repairing a collapse is much more expensive than repairing a crack.
