- Is it bare concrete or some other surface?
- Does it have cracks?
- Suffer from algae attack?
- Loose water?
Bare concrete pools (or plain rendered).
- May suffer from algae attack as the pores within the concrete allow the algae to take hold and grow deep roots. Treating the pool water with algaecide becomes an expensive exercise with little long term result as the treatment does not reach the roots at all.
- There may be rust stains were the pool water (more of an issue if using salt) has entered micro cracks in the concrete and is now causing the reinforcement steel to corrode and expand inside the concrete shell. This is not a good thing at all. The rust stains are a tell tale sign and need to be fully investigated. Once started it can be difficult to stop completely and while the rusting is taking place it may result in the weakening of your pool structure causing even more damage.
