    Pool replaster, Burbank CA

    So after much procrastination I took the plunge and have started the resurface of the pool. The is currently a standard gunite/plaster finish and I am having it redone with a quartz, midnight blue.

    I have done this @ss backward as I already had the yard resurfaced so I hope my builder is very careful !

    Started to empty the pool today, demo starts tomorrow !

    Good luck with it, Jim. We'd love to see pics if you have time. The kids look like their shoulders are slumped just a little.

    The kids had a great time playing in the pool while it was getting emptied..

    The demo was done yesterday. The crew of four did a good job, worked their socks off and were gone by about 6:00pm. They cleaned up good and didn't damage any of the pavers as far as I can tell. It rained slightly during the night so I don't know if anything will be happening today.

    Not much happened after the demo until this week. The coping was delivered and is being cut and placed.

    Did you have to replace the oping or was it an aesthetic decision?

    Aesthetic. I never really liked the existing coping or the tile that went round the pool so I am replacing both.

    we just had the diamondbrite quartz midnight blue installed. The installers did a mediocre job. You should read the install guide on the diamondbrite site and then confirm which method your installers will use. Also ask them about the pool startup to see if they really know what they are talking about.

    My guys used the water washing and did a pretty poor job so I have cream splotches all over. They also left pools of water which turned out to leave rings that wont seem to go away. There are areas where they didnt completely smooth out the plaster and one very tiny area where I think the gunite is showing.

    PB says it will go away over time, but Im skeptical

    That's what I am having installed too, Midnight Blue but by NPT (Quartzscapes). I was going to ask about the start up on here, so what's involved with the start up ? Is that something I can do myself ? I'll check with the PB about the install, cheers.
