Hi . I'm a newbie and look forward to sharing with and making use of this wonderful site.
I purchased a house with an half build pool and have now taken it almost to the point of having it surfaced.
My 2 questions please are : for advise or recommendations on render versus pebble type finishes and what are the benefits/ reasons for a tile band at the top of the pool walls. It will be a saltwater pool and was going have it pebblecreted but the builder who finished the half built house also suggested the option of rendering the pool by the company who did our house rendering as a cheaper option. It's a small pool and 'normal' render would be $500-700 cheaper. Perhaps not resin base? Not much info around with regards to lifespan on the net etc
