I have a 1958 concrete pool that is 30x60x13' deep.  It is fantastic.  I bought the place last year.  This past winter, the concrete was damaged where there must have been some cracks where water got in and expanded.  As a result I have pieces of concrete coming off.  The pieces are approximately 1" deep x 12" wide in odd shapes.  

I want to get ahead of it.  Least year, we used "quick Crete" but that didn't work.  Any suggestions?

There are a few options that others have done to repair their concrete poo 

  • Inject epoxy or polyurethane into the crack to seal it off
  • Apply hydraulic cement over the crack
  • “Staple” the crack closed with rebar staples
  • Tear out and redo the damaged area of the pool

You can try it or you can hire a professional to do it.  A job like this I would lean towards the pro otherwise you will probably end up with more issues.
