I have read this forum for years but this is my first post.
I have had pools for over 20 years but this is my first replaster. I hired a start up expert recommended by the replaster company for start up and one month of follow up.
We had our 16K gallon pool replastered with Quartzscapes Tahoe Blue last month (fill began on 9/23/16). My question is whether the discoloration we are seeing (see attached pics) is normal and we should just be patient (as the replaster contractor recommends), or if there is there a problem with the plaster.
The replaster company indicated there would be some variation in coloring (which we expected), but over the last couple of weeks the variation has become even more pronounced and several more or less rectangular streaks (several feet long and about a foot or so wide) have appeared along with a prominent trowel mark (see attached pics). Along the sides there are also what appear to be drip lines emerging below a bench. The builder insists there is no problem with the plaster and that the surface looks great!
The quartz finish was not acid washed after the troweling was finished and filling began immediately afterwards.
Your thoughts would be most welcome. Thank you for your thoughts about this.
