How Often Should a Pool be Replastered?

The frequency with which a pool needs to be replastered depends on several factors, including the type of plaster used, the quality of the water chemistry maintenance, and the amount of use the pool receives. Generally, a pool with a standard white plaster finish will need to be replastered every 7 to 15 years.

However, there are some signs that may indicate that the pool needs to be replastered sooner. These signs include roughness or pitting in the plaster surface, staining that cannot be removed with standard cleaning methods, and excessive calcium buildup. If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended to have a pool professional inspect the plaster and determine if replastering is necessary.
