    Default Repairing cracks in marblesheen finish

    I have a 20 year old marblesheen finished pool resurfaced by our predecessors. No complaints.
    There is some significant horizontal cracking, and a small area of drummy marblesheen 100 x 100 mm approx.
    It probably needs complete resurfacing, but in the short term I'm contemplating grinding out the cracks and using an epoxy such as Epotec https://poolpaint.com.au/products/. I know about epoxies - around boats - but this is all a bit foreign. Anybody have any views or experience? And I know it won't match either the texture or colour of marblesheen.
    Regards and thanks

    You say resurfaced 20 years ago, but was it marblesheen before the resurface ?

    Droog, thanks for this. And good question, pebblecrete under the marblesheen.
    No bigger effort drain than a bloody pool ..... use for 2 months, maintain for 12. Family swam yesterday for the first time this summer!
