I'm in the market for an IG gunite pool, probably in the 800 sq ft range. 3 1/2 to 8' deep. SWG. I'm undecided on the finish and am interested in some of y'alls opinions on the standard quartz/plaster vs. the higher end pebble finishes.
I'd never really even heard of pebble finishes until I got intereted in a pool and started doing my research. They look fantastic, but have heard that they may be rough on the feet. There is also the cost consideration. Does the durability of the pebble pay for itself in longevity? Any other issues?
The standard plaster finishes always seemed nice to me too, I guess I'm just looking for opinions.
So what are your thoughts? Pebble or plaster???
