Pool is finally finished but somehow the plaster company installed the wrong color quartzbrite. We debated long and hard between a midnight blue (a dark blue, about the color of a BLUE crayon) and Aruba sky (a light blue, like robins egg blue). We first picked the midnight but got worried. After driving over 100 miles to see pools, scouring the internet, and driving everyone I know insane, we changed our minds to the lighter Aruba sky.
Day of plaster I triple checked the color with the installers, and as they sprayed it, it looked light blue. It was a little darker but as it was wet, we thought that would be the final color when wet. Acid wash went fine but as we filled it up it got darker. Then came the acid bath, every day it got darker. Plaster guy came out and insured PB and I it was the right and it would lighten up to the light blue. Pool has now been neutralized, all the chemicals balanced and it is still not light blue. It looks almost exactly like the midnight blue. My guess is they did not get informed we changed our color choice.
We have shade all but 4 hours a day, so the water color looks like lake water, not attractive with our style (roman with blue glass tile/white precast coping). In sun it's a dark windex color that clashes with our blue tile. Also the LED lights we have don't show up well, most colors look blue because the walls are so dark.
The PB said during acid wash we would reevaluate the color July 1st and decide what to do from there. Not sure he will even offer to redo it. He has gotten a bit testy with me over it, but has since backed off. Not sure how he will be if come July 1st I insist it is wrong and we don't like it.
My question is, what is the replaster process if we decide we hate it and want it redone? Is it detrimental to the pool? I don't want to end up worse than we are. Any advice appreciated!
