We are in the process of installing a new pool in southern NJ. We are getting close to the point of having to choose a plaster type. Our options are diamond brite or pebbletec. We do not want any variation on the color and have seen a few diamonite brite installs that have a small amount of variation. We are also not sure about the roughness of the pebbletec or the possibility of aggregate falling out overtime. Just wanted to know what most people think about both products.
We are also looking into stamped concrete for the decking, but our PB doesn't like to do it since there are also problems with diffusion and sealers and so forth. What do you think?
