We are just about finished with our pool project here in DFW. We did a free form pool, with Pebblesheen finish in Blue Granite with the abalone shells added in. My issue is, the pool finish looks streaky, like there is a color variation in certain areas on the floor. You can only see this when the sun isn't shining directly into the water, but it's pretty noticeable. My pool builder called this normal, and said it's "shade variations" in the finish. It's not paint on a wall, it's pigments and cement, and it won't look exactly the same color everywhere.
I looked at another pool that has pebblesheen, that another pool builder did, and it looks fine. I looked at another one this pool builder did, and it has these same shade variations. I've called pebbletec, and they've been slow to respond or do anything about it.
So I thought I'd ask the forum. Is this normal?
I took a couple of pictures with my iPhone. It looks worse in person than it does on these photos, but you can see if you look around the drain, the color is different than the rest of the pool, in a streaky way.
Any comments are greatly appreciated!
