    Pebble Tex vs. Sparkle Quartz Break in times

    I am currently planning on using Finest Finish Sparkle Quartz in our new pool. But now am considering going with Pebble Tec. My question is, What is the difference in start up / break in procedures between the two of them. In other words can I swim any earlier by going with Pebble Tec.

    They are very very similar in terms of when you can swim. You will get different answers from different people on when you can swim. Thus, one company might tell you one thing and the other company tell you a different thing. Regardless, the underlying issues are the same which ever of the surfaces you get.
