This is our first pool build, so I joined this forum and I am encourage to find such an abundance of information. We live in North Texas were there is a bunch of clay, so we had chemical injections done two days ago. Yesterday, we had the gunite shot in the pool. I have taken time lapse photos of most of the project, so when I came home yesterday to review the film I was disappointed to find what appeared, to my unexperienced eye, to be the use of rebound to shape the sun bench, steps and brushed in to the floor of the pool.
I went with a reputable PB in this area with 25 years of experience and they weren't the lowest bid by far. I didn't mind the extra cash because of their reputation and piece of mind that it afforded us. But know I'm not so sure.
I am uploading some pics of the final product, I am still getting the video together that I will upload later for your review. What do you think?
