    Glow in the Dark Question

    There is a product that glows in the dark. I've seen some pictures on the web and these look amazing at night.
    Anyone ever seen or used this in a pool? The owner says that he has a pool builder in AZ who orders about 300 lbs at a time making me think there are a few pools in AZ using this product. Apparently, the application is the same as using abalone shells except you only see the product after dark.

    Re: Glow in the Dark Question

    Those look pretty neat! I'll be interested to see what kind of responses you get here. Hopefully someone has first hand experience with it.

    When I was researching local plaster companies for our ownder build, I came across a review for Romo's out of Irving that mentioned them having a new product that uses glow in the dark flakes for the pool plaster. The reviewer hadn't used it, but found out about it after the fact and was disappointed that it wasn't available sooner. My point in bringing this up is that maybe you could call Romo's and find out what they can tell you about what they use (if, indeed, they do use something like this.). I hope this helps.O

    I just found the relevant review on their Facebook page:

    I'm not advocating for Romo's services either way, since I've never used them, but just noting that they may be a local source for this product.

    I bought some similar stuff and cast it into the concrete top of my fire pit. I then polished the top with diamond grinding pads, it looks pretty cool at night, in the day they are white. Here is where I got mine, they do have quite a few different colors. Core Glow Stones | Product Categories | Core Glow
