The 6 Best Pool Plasters
This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in March of 2019. Damage to your swimming pool's surface isn't just unsightly; it can also cause bigger problems down the line, as cracks expand or chips continue to flake away. Fortunately, you can usually perform repairs yourself with one of these handy pool plasters. They're relatively inexpensive, especially compared to the cost of a full refinishing, and they don't require years of experience to use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Currently, the three top choices in pool plasters are Sider-Crete Plaster Patch, Pool Patch Plaster Repair, and EZ Products 1 FS, with each offering a simple to use formula that gives attractive results. You can use EZ Products underwater, whereas the other two require that you lower the water level; on the other hand, 1 FS is more expensive, so you'll need to decide whether you want to trade convenience for cash. All dry to a clean white, though, so you don't have to worry about your repair job becoming an eyesore. There's also CGM Perma, which is quite strong, but it is not as easy to find in small sizes. If you have a lot of work that needs doing, though, this might not be a bad thing. Finally, we elected to add the Atlas Epoxy Putty Set, even though it is not a plaster. Nevertheless, it can be used to make similar repairs, and it may even be easier for some users to manipulate, since you mold it entirely by hand. Plus, it's not terribly pricey.
