James Monroe called my repair service to fix the missing grout on the pool wall between the pool and the Jacuzzi.
This post shows the eight steps to repair missing pool grout.
Step 1: Fig.1 upper right shows the pre-mixed Grout that will be used in the job.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the damage. Look at the pool grout, not all pool grout are white, some are various colors and these colors need to be purchase at a pool supply store. This grout was off white and someone had painted the pool tile brown and the paint had leached into the grout which had damaged the grout and the rest of the pool.
