Your concrete swimming pool is covered with a layer called pool plaster, which is
responsible for avoiding leaks, so the water is safely and completely trapped inside
the pool. Depending on your choice of pool plastering material (Adams Pool Specialties
offers standard pool plaster, pebble, quartz, and glass beads), you may encounter
problems with maintaining the beauty and effectiveness of this pool layer. But don't
worry! Whatever problems you have with your pool plastering,
Adams Pool Specialties can provide expert advice as well as the most cost-efficient
Here are some of the most common pool plastering and pool finish problems:
Your pool plaster may be water resistant but that doesn't mean it can resist all the water pressure thrown onto the pool plastering, especially if you're using material with lower standard. Cracks are also possible during extreme temperature. There will be times when you will see a crack on the surface. When you start seeing these, call your pool specialist at Adams Pool Specialties immediately so we can solve this issue before the crack gets bigger and more complicated to seal.
When the water in your pool is too acidic, pool plaster can get eaten away. This causes rough areas on the top layer and sometimes fades the pool’s color (oftentimes, swimming pools become beige). If you are dealing with this problem, contact our experts for some advice.
Aside from too much acid content, your water may have exaggerated amount of minerals. Minerals and water when mixed together create chemical reactions that cause patches or what we know as “scales.” Depending on its severity, Adams Pool Specialties may advise you on properly softening the water or you may have to re-plaster. Same solution is offered when your pool plaster suddenly experiences chipping and flaking.
Aside from color wearing over time, water pressure and water composition may cause discoloration to your pool plaster. To fix this, you may need to replace your pool plaster or pool finish with something more water-resistant such as Beadcrete Pool Plaster, Pebble Tec Pool Finish, or Quartzscapes Pool Finish.
Since pool plasters are often a blend of quartz aggregates, pebbles or glass, they are bonded by the strongest adhesive to hold them together. Usually, manufacturers use concrete or gunite to put them together. When a different type of adhesive is used, it could result in looseness. When this happens, your pool specialist may recommend removal of all affected plaster layers and then re-patch them when they are already fixed.
