I need Serious Input Please!!!!!!
We have an 8 year old 33,000 gallon Anthony & Sylvan built pool. For about 5 years years now (I've posted on this in the past) crater like formations have been slowly appearing all along the bottom of the pool. These craters are covering about 50% of the bottom of our pool now. Some you can put the tip of your finger in. Our water is tested weekly and pretty much spot on chemically.
Now we are being told that we have to renovate (about 10K). This is where I need input. Is there a way to skim the pool (like you would spackle a wall) and re-paint? Why do we have to take down the existing plaster, shoot new gunnite and re-paint?
Here are a couple of pics.
Awaiting your replies. Thank you!
