Very tiny cracks in the finish may be due to the material shrinking when it dries and is not neccessarily an indication of a problem. If however the cracks are larger than hairline and longer than a couple of inches it may indicate a more serious problem.

I believe the contractor should be responsible for repairs if the cracks are due to faulty workmanship such as improper soil compaction or application of gunite in cold weather etc. If the cracks were caused by a force of nature such as a flood this should be covered by homeowners insurance. In closure what was the warranty on the pool. Most reputable gunite applicators provide a warranty on the pool shell.

Hi, I have a fiberglass that was install 15 years ago. I notice that there a bubbles in the pool recently. i'm going to get cracks , what can I do to prevent that.?

If the cracks are in the surface layer of the fiberglass, the problem can be rectified. These "spider" cracks form in the gel coating of the fiberglass, due to pressures that can occur from a pool that was not installed quite level, for instance. These types of cracks aren't structural. If the bubbles are raised, I would call a pool repair service.
