What is the Purpose of Plaster?

Plaster is needed to have the smooth touch on your pool surface. Having a smooth surface means your pool has no erosion or calcium build-up on the surface. Once erosion occurs the surface takes on a very rough feel and creates pits for algae to grow into the pool walls and floor (this can cause problems with repeated algae formation in short periods of time).

How Do I Know I Need to Replaster My Pool?

There are some indicators that you may notice in your pools’ surface that will tell you that you need new plaster. Some major indicators are: algae that has grown into the pits of the plaster, you can see the gray gunite shell under the plaster, bubbles or pop-ups, the surface is rough to walk on, snags bathing suits, or pool cleaner parts seem to be wearing down in a short time (tires, wear rings, hoses, etc.), or when the plaster has blue/green or orange stains from high amounts of metals in water. Sometimes you can get an acid wash to temporarily “fix” your plaster problem, but consult a professional before moving forward.
