    Tile is called Noble Akiu. It was an upgrade but well worth it imo.

    It looks splotchy but the PB said you couldn't see it with the water. We wanted a medium blue color water and this was similar to our neighbors just a slight bit darker gray. Guess we will see tomorrow how it turns out.

    Our pool is gray plaster. You can expect it to be splotchy with the water in it unless you have magic gray plaster. I prefer to call it mottled and we love the look. You can see our build thread in my signature for a preview, page 4 shows our plaster mostly dried before water was trucked in. The coloration isn't as obvious when the pump is running. With the pump off and water still, the "natural" look will be clear. Hopefully he didn't sell you on it being a nice smooth gray like the plaster looked when wet just after being troweled on.

    Looks gorgeous!!

    He said it would have a "textured look" which we are ok. They did make it clear that it wouldn't look smooth.

    I asked what the substance by the drain was and he said some start up chemicals and that it wouldn't effect the plaster.

    Yeah, that would concern me too. Hopefully it goes away.

    The plaster looks great! I like the color water produced by grey pools.

    I am sure your PB is right as he has done it before but I can think of NOTHING GOOD that would come from allowing that chemistry to lay on the pool floor. I would brush it immediately if not sooner.

    They came out and put the chemicals in and started the pump. He said they will take care of it no matter what. Really happy with the PB so far.

    Personally, I would start testing now so you know what the PB is doing and it will give you practice. I know you are happy with your PB, but please be cautious after the chemical dump.
