Hello! Our pool is very close to being done and I need some feedback/advice! I spent a great deal of time planning my raised wall with the glass tile, and even when speaking with my builder we decided to upgrade to copper waterfalls because I did not like the look of the white plastic waterfalls. Well, they did the tile and concrete coping a couple days ago and I noticed this white strip of plastic along the sides and top...which I mistakenly thought was temporary. Today I found out that it's permanent! I'm so upset...my builder says that ALL pools have this and there's nothing I can do...there's no other option. I'm having a hard time believing this! I can't believe that after all that planning and upgrading the waterfalls specifically to NOT have white plastic on my wall...it now has white plastic all around it! Also, the concrete coping is going to be a dark gray, so that's going to make it stand out even more.
Anyway...does anyone know...is this the only option? Is there anything I can about it? Can it be painted or even removed? I've scoured the internet trying to even see what this is called and some examples of pools with this and I can't find any.
Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
