Anyone else with damage to pool plaster from storm debris?
I had my heavy-ass back table end up in the pool during the storm. I didn’t really think anything of it, but after cleaning all the leaves, etc, out of the pool and getting it clear again, I noticed a crack about a foot long in the area where the table ended up. I got into the pool for a closer look and found a second crack, not quite as large, in the same area.

Anyone else have any experience with this? Can spot repairs be made to correct this, or will I have to re-plaster the entire pool? I realize it’s likely only cosmetic, but my guess is it’s only going to get worse over time…

Bump. Had a guy come out today. It can be patched but it will look like shite. He suggested an entire re-plaster and put it toward my claim.

Jump over to TFP and ask the question. Post some photos. They have some experts there that will give to an honest answer.

That is likely the correct answer though

Man sorry to hear that! My pool flooded in May and I had staining on gunite. I Ran elevated chlorine for a while and brushed non stop and it’s still noticeable. If you don’t mind sharing what was the quote to replaster and how many gallons is your pool?

What color is your finish? Mine already had some staining, etc, but I was hoping to get another 3-4 years before re-plastering.

Pool is 12,000g with hot tub. Quote was $4700. I’ve got more calls in, so I’ll update as I get additional estimates.

We did a “custom color, 90% of mix is Tahoe blue.
Yikes I figured it would be expensive but had no idea. Any idea how old plaster is removed and do you have to redo waterline tile?

I have thought about getting in pool with pressure washer wand and seeing if I can clean some off. Problem is staining is on the bottom of deep end with is about 8’ deep

Plaster can be applied to original plaster. You only want to do it one time because it will be another layer and will be further out than marker tile, waterline tile, and bottoms of fittings. Probably what that above quote is. If it has already been done, it needs to be chipped off of the gunite and redone which will be twice that price. Waterline tile doesn’t have to be changed… if they don’t mess it up.

Had mine repalstered about 2 months ago 15000 gallon.
labor and material was around 6K,
IDA flooded the pool with mud. I pumped it as soon at the water went down enough that I was not worried about it popping up.

The new plaster is stained, we did a light acid washer high chlorine but the stains are still there. pool is working fine but its just sick feeling I waited 3 years to redo pool and only got 2 months out of it

Had another guy come out and give me an estimate of $8800. He said the right way to go was to chip everything out any re-do it. This quote also includes changing out the coping and waterline tile (labor and materials if I select one of their tile options), as he claims this is also the “correct” way to go. I may want to change out the tile and coping, but it did set my bull shite meter off a good bit. Can anyone speak intelligently to that claim?

Also, I believe damage to pools is paid out as ACV. In my experience, adjusters typically depreciate the hell out of fences. How badly should I brace for them to try to depreciate the pool relative to repairs?

I’m not sure why the coping would need to be replaced, but I can understand replacing the waterline tile. It’s probably very difficult to chip out the old plaster without damaging the existing tile.

What kind of coping do you have?

This is sort of what I figured, he doesn’t want to deal with potential damage, which is certainly more understandable in the case of the tile. The coping is just a bullnose paving stone, so nothing exotic.

Just curious, what issues have fiberglass pool owners had after Ida? Is it an easier fix?
