    pool renovation help

    we have 13,000 gallon inground concrete pool with quartzon interior that is in very good condition, however
    previous pwners did not look after chemistry so interior became "sharp and cut childrens feet"
    (not sure but suspect highly acidic, pool store measured ph at 4.5 when we bought house)
    they painted with blue epoxy paint
    we have had several pool refinishers quote
    they all tell me only their product is good and competitors is no good
    number 1 sandblast, scratch coat and either quartzon $8.855 or 80% glass bead $9,955
    number 2 wants to pressure wash paint off, scratch coat and a similar quartz product $8,800 or 40% glass bead product $9,900 but says quartzon is no good and more than 40% glass bead will not be strong
    number 3 sandblast and insists glass tile is the only way $12,500 (i feel glass tiles is too slippery)
    number 2 does not want to go any darker than medium blue but suggests adding a mica product for more sparkle
    the more quotes i get the more confused i get
    ps seems to cost a lot more in Australia to refinish than the USA

    with a PH of 4.5 they were trying to get the calcium that had precipitated on the pool wall to come off, basically an acid bath...

    Sorry, I have no idea about what type would be better but all 3 would be better than paint, most painted pools only last a couple years that I have seen here..
