    New to forum- choosing between pebble sheen and pebble fina

    Hello,

    I am new to the forum. We are in the process of building an inground pool. It's already gunited and we need to choose the interior finish asap. We are having a tough time deciding between pebble sheen and fina. I know that fina is much smoother but...is it so smooth that it will look like regular plaster? Does it lose the 'pebble' effect? On the flipside- is pebble sheen very rough? We have a sun shelf and I am wondering if sitting on the pebble sheen will pull the bathing suits? Any advice, opinions, info is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Kristina

    Hi Kristina,

    Welcome, glad you found this great site full of information. I have learned many things from here. As for the finish of the pool we have "pebble fina" on ours and love it. Yes from a distant it looks like regular plaster, but when the sun hits it all the different colors appear. No problem with swimsuits as it is a smooth surface. Myself I perfer the smooth surface as it is easier to brush and maintain. Hope this helps in your decision.

    Welcome to TFP. While I can't comment on the finish I can say Hi!

    Another question I meant to post above...do the pebble fina pools get the same mottling/swirling effect that can happen with gray plaster pools?

    thanks to all!

    I have no swirling on my pebble fina after 3 yrs. Nice and smooth.

    Hi SCCS...assuming that is your pool in your profile picture...what color is your pebblefina?

    Many thanks...

    Hello... I posted this question last week in a different section of this forum..thought I'd give it another shot here where others are in the process of building new pools like us..
