    Our pool and remodel pictures

    OK...well here goes, we just finished up with the remodel a few weeks ago (I wouldn't want to go through it again!) While we liked it before the remodel the previous owners had painted it a few years prior and the plaster looked awful, the decking was cracking where we added the flagstone and the tile was OLD and cracking in some spots...

    Here's a before:



    A couple during the remodel:




    And the finished product!!!!

    very nice outcome, even if the process was less than pleasant!

    Love the slate coping with the aggregate deck.

    8200 gallon 20' x 48" round vinyl frame pool, manually chlorinated with 10% liquid, salt added to ~2000, 12" sand filter, 1600gph pump, TF100 test kit

    Woops, I put the nighttime updated in the wrong thread...I miss clicked

    Here's the night time pictures, we have 11 tiki's, they make all the difference; we also added a blue light cover, I love the look of the water with it on!! Best 7.50 we've spent on the pool

    Nice. Is that an agregate finish or did you just re-plaster?

    just re-plaster...we only plan on staying for 3 to 5 more years...if we were going to be here for another 20 we would have gone for a pebble tek.

    from the day time pics it just looked replastered, but that first night time pic looked like pebble tek. I bet it's nice NOT to see that stained plaster when you go out and look at it.

    That looks great!
    What was the process to re-plaster?
    I had a pool builder look at mine and he says that any time plaster is recoated the entire pool needs to be chiped down to the Gunite and re-plastered from scratch. I appears that you re-skimed yours.

    Can any one give advice on this?

    Thanks!

    ours was actually painted, they had to sand blast off the paint (very messy process) then they did the tile, coping and finally the plaster...I'm just happy it's over with

    Bpotter,

    We're hijacking the thread just a bit, but I'm not sure that PB is correct. You certainly need a dry, solid, clean surface on any masonry application but I don't see the necessity of removing all the old plaster. I'd tend to believe a sand-blasting process would make the old surface readily accept and bond the new plaster. That said, a professional plasterer would have a better opinion than me.
