  • Very nice pool! I built my own concrete pool, but it's hot tub sized, much smaller. I found your article while looking for pool coatings. I originally used Drylock waterproofing paint, which worked initially, but developed cracks at the seems between the blocks. I re-painted numerous times. Then the paint began to break off in large chips. Now I am removing all that old paint with a masonry hammer and an angle grinder. Lots of hard work. Once I remove all the paint down to the bare concrete, I plan on re-coating it with something and I am looking for the right product.Could you explain the "plaster" that you used? Thanks!,DonPics show condition now and whole pool several years ago.
