When does your pool need to be replastered? The answer is usually when the pool shows visible signs of deterioration. The plaster protects both the structure of the pool and also to look and feel of it. Damage to the plaster will also affect the crystal clear appearance of the pool. Also, the plaster keeps the pool waterproof. The basin of the pool is typically made of concrete materials, which is porous and will not hold water over time. If there was no protective coating, the water would eventually drain itself and you’d have to keep refilling it. Keeping an eye out is important to see the signs.
Minerals like copper and iron live in the water and will stain the plaster over time. Acid washing may take care of it temporarily, but over the course of a few years the plaster may be so stained that replastering is necessary.
Plaster is used to as a waterproof layer to protect the structural support of the basin. This basin is usually made up of a concrete-like substance such as gunite or shotcrete. When this material is showing through the plaster coating, that is a good sign that replastering is needed.
