Can just tile and decking be replaced on plaster pool?
We had our "new" pool replastered last year because it was in pretty bad shape, along with some plumbing modernizations. We opted to save the tile because it was in good shape but we're thinking maybe we need to replace it after all. The coping also needs to be replaced as well as the deck.
Can this be done without replastering? Can plaster be touched up? (It's just plain white plaster.) Removing the tile will probably ding up the plaster, just as removing the plaster sort of messed up the tile--if the pool remodeler hadn't claimed it would be fine, we wouldn't have done it that way. >:(
Any suggestions on the proper procedure? (We do not freeze here, if that's relevant.) Thanks!
