Why do swimming pools crack?
Pools may have cracks that vary from minor hydration cracks (which may have resulted from extended periods of exposure to the sun) to major leaking structural cracks that have been caused as a result of natural pool settling, surrounding earth shifting, or poor workmanship when the pool was built.
When shifting or settling takes place, strain is put on the surrounding pool shell, which can lead to a cracking of the shell. Water leaking through the crack slowly erodes the soil underneath which only results in further shifting and settling.
A common misconception is that resurfacing a pool can solve the problem. Resurfacing alone does not fully restore a cracked pool, as the damage is already done and the area underneath the crack needs to be repaired.

Don’t wait to have your pool crack repairs done.
Swimming pools can develop cracks in the concrete that lies beneath the plaster surface, due to settling, earth movement or soil erosion. Small hairline cracks in the finish may not result in a leak and can often be repaired fairly easily. On the other hand, a larger structural crack that is under stress cannot just be glued or plastered over. The stress on the crack will continue to pull it apart, making it bigger. These structural cracks must be stabilized and repaired to prevent the crack from getting worse and causing further leak problems.
