A deep dive into the perfect plaster finish

Original Presentation Date: August 12th, 2020

Pool plastering is as much of an art as it is a science. Learn how the bond characteristics between plaster and concrete can result in a perfectly smooth finish, or ugly, costly repairs. See examples of some pitfalls and best practices for plaster application, and how the quality of the finish can affect the final product.
