How to Repair Cracks in a Fiberglass Pool
- Drain the water in the inground pool to the level of the cracked steps.
- Spray the pool liner with the hose every two minutes to keep it wet during repairs thus preventing damage.
- Use a putty knife to fill the crack with underwater fiberglass/epoxy repair adhesive.
Similarly, do fiberglass pools crack in cold weather? Fiberglass pools are a great option for both warm weather and cold weather climates. When water freezes, it expands upward, not outward. This means that water that freezes would not press against the shell of the pool and cause it to crack. Instead, it would go over the edge of the pool slightly.
