What happens if you don't re-plaster your pool?

My pool needs to be re-plastered.


Answer by  Sara89 (367)

Most plaster jobs last about 10 years. If your pool goes too long between plasters, the surface can actually start losing plaster, which is both unsightly and bad for your pool. The loose bits of plaster are bad for the filter, and if the gunite becomes exposed, cracks (a much more expensive problem) can result.

If you don't re-plaster your pool then eventually you could face serious maintenance issues. The plaster keeps the pool from leaking and keeps the walls smooth. If you do not re-plaster the pool then small cracks can form in the plaster this can cause small leaks, which become bigger, and this will cause a multitude of issues.

If you don't re-plaster your pool, water can seep through the concrete and cause it to deteriorate. Which could cause cracking or even a collapse in the floor of the pool, due to soil erosion. By using sealing plaster, you can keep water from penetrating into the concrete.

If you do not replaster your pool, your pool will chip and crack. Not only would this make it look unappealing but it could also cause the pool water to potentially leak out.

The plaster will break off in chunks large pieces will sink to the bottom and small pieces will make the water gray and clog the filter, ruining your whole pool.

If you don't re-plaster it with time it will get degraded over time. What I mean by that it it will show big signs of wear and the chroline will break through the pool.
