When to Replaster the Pool

If you are a pool owner wondering how often the pool should be replastered, read on. Plaster is important to the integrity of an in-ground pool structure, so it is vital to have your pool covered properly with plaster. Here are a few factors that determine when it’s time to replaster the pool.

 

Damaged Plaster

Plaster is the waterproof layer between the pool water and the shell of the pool. If you notice any signs of damage, then you should have our professionals replaster your pool. Signs of damage include plaster is beginning to chip, crack. It is also a problem when there are bare spots where the gunite beneath is showing through. Additional, if there are any spots at the tile line or inside the skimmer, this can easily be fixed, but it is recommended that the plaster be patched. Many thin spots in the plaster call for the entire pool liner to be resurfaced.

 

Want to Change Pool Color

Perhaps you simply want a new color for your plaster. You can choose from a variety of colors to enhance the beauty of your pool. Keep in mind that plaster color can affect the pool’s water color. Gray typically produces darker shades of blues. Tans and sandy colors will produce a subdued green. White produces clear light blues.

 

Desire to Change Texture of Plaster

Improper water chemistry, frequent or overly strong acid washing can create pits and pockets in the plaster surface. This type of “etching” can be uncomfortable for swimmers.  Plaster with pitting can feel rough to the skin, can snag swimsuits, gives dirt a place to hide, and algae a nice surface to attach their roots. It is important that your pool plaster is smooth and soft to the touch.
