Fixing Pool Cracks Yourself?
Here is my pool. Sorry the pic is a bit dark; I took it after work. As you can see I have visible cracks on the walls. Can I fill them myself using something like Sher-Crete Miracle Bond? Or do I need to hire a professional? I believe the cracks have formed over the years from the Florida sun baking the empty pool walls. I last had a professional look at the pool back in 2012. He didn't think there was much wrong with it and told me he'd have to completely empty and clean the pool, then refill with water to determine if there were actually any leaks. The price tag was $450+. I didn't have the work done.
Now I'm ready to covert the pool to a pond. I do not care at all about filters, pumps or the functionality of these parts. I just want to assure that when I fill the pool with water to start my pond it does not lose a significant amount of water daily and will last at least for the next few years. I'm not looking to spend a ton of money either. Is it foolish to do DIY work on pool cracks? Anyone have experience with this?
