I searched for the various finishes and Pros and cons and cannot see them.
Most of the pool builders were using Sunscapes or Pebbletec with a cheaper alternative of Diamond Brite but this one pushed Sunstone.
He is really pushing Sunstone and what scares me is this statement:
"Sunstone is a true aggregate finish - there is no quartz in it."
but on CLI's website it states:
"Transform an ordinary pool into a work of art with SunStoneĀ® exposed aggregate pool finish. This remarkable formula will add a sparkle to any pool-and yet it's as hard and as tough as any pool surface available today.
SunStoneĀ® is a combination of durable quartz aggregate and enhanced Portland cement, accented with colored quartz aggregate. "
I know it is all marketing but has anyone used Sunstone we had 3M quartz/plaster in our last pool and it lasted 8 years until it started to get delaminate some and the "Cream" was peeling off.
