One of the most common repairs customers need to be done is pool plaster repair or simply needing to replaster their entire pool. Often the right course of action is simply to replaster your swimming pool – especially if you are tired of the faded, stained, rough, and peeling surface on your pool or spa. However, sometimes simple repairs to the plaster in your pool is the best decision to make. Concrete pools tend to be the most popular of all pool types. Concrete is porous, meaning that it has “minutes spaces or holes through which liquid or air may pass.” To limit leaking, a very dense layer of plaster is applied to the interior of concrete pools. If you have holes in this layer, it can lead to leaks. While there are DIY kits on the market, Alan Smith Pools highly discourages trying to plaster your pool by yourself. It can be disastrous if there are any missteps.
