    Looks fantastic, can I ask where you got the picture of the Marbletite midnight blue pic from? I've been looking everywhere for a picture so I want to make sure it's authentic. I am in the process of picking a color (today is the deadline!) and my builder told me they've been having problems with Diamondbrite's streaking on these darker colors and recommended Marbletite instead. Only problem is diamondbrite has a ton of pictures available for their colors while Marbletite has zero. I just want to make sure your pic is an authentic marbletite midnight blue before I choose to go with this brand over the diamondbrite. Thanks!

    Awesome! Now make sure you follow the PB's instructions for any warranty protection and refer to our Pool School - Start-up New Plaster page just so you're a step ahead of the game. Congrats!

    Re: New Pool Build-Jacksonville Florida, lots of pics

    Well.....funny you should mention that. PB came over today and dumped acid in it and started up the pump....pool is now filled with mud. He said there was "dirt in the plumbing from all the rain".... Let me post the pic of what it looks like NOW. Pool pool pump is maxed out and I don't think it will help. Not sure what they will do now....

    Oh my, that can't be easy to see. The experts will surely help you, I've believe I've seen a thread similar a while back.

    I don't really know anything about this, but with all that mud, have you changed/cleaned your filter?

    I have NO clue what to do....pool builder told me to not do anything. Pump is running and that's IT. I couldn't even begin to tell you how to change he filter as this is a brand new pool and we haven't even had our "pool school" yet
