Concrete swimming pools are the best pools that money can buy but when it comes to repairs, like to the interior surface of the pool, the repair costs can get very heavy, very quickly. The interior surface of a concrete pool is a very dense mortar that is troweled to a water resistant smooth finish. Concrete however is porous which means that water would leak out constantly.
In order to limit this problem, a very dense mortar layer, called plaster, is applied over the entire interior surface of the pool. The plaster layer is a very dense mortar, which reduces water permeability, however troweling the plaster when it is nearly already hard, called a "hard trowel" is where the majority of the water resistance comes from.
