Hello all...I have been reading this forum now for a few weeks, ever since we signed a contract with Blue Fountain Pools. They have been doing great work, just poor communication on when they will be out and what not. So far they have gotten the hole dug, steel in, plumbing and underground all done and signed off along with all pool equipment installed. now seems as all we need to do is get the pre-cast copping instlaled with the tile and stacked stone. But I have a few questions...
1. We want to do a darker plaster (medium grey) but have heard horror stories about it discoloring in a few years. Is this because they had bad water chemistry or is it just going to happen with a non white plaster?
2. The plaster guys want an extra $600 to use grey instead of white...seems very expensive for a few bags of color dye. Or is there actually a huge cost for the extra color?
3. I have read that you can not swim in the new pool for anywhere between 7-30 days after the plaster is completed...what is the actual amount of time before we can swim?
4. I will be maintaining my own pool so I will be on here a lot with questions...(more of a statement, but oh well)
thanks guys and look forward to the new forum
