I had my pool finished about 5 weeks ago. Diamond Brite French Gray. I knew about the mottling effect from what I have read on here, and expected a non-consistent finish. But I did expect it to be consistently non-consistent... I did not expect streaks and lines... and I am trying to figure out if this is normal or an issue from installation or acid wash.
Installation day was dry... no rain. Came back the next day to acid wash, and I filled right away over the next two days.
I have maintained the water balance EXACTLY from day 1 based on SGM standards. I brushed twice daily during the first two weeks as instructed. I varied the brushing pattern each time.
The water color is a bit lighter than I expected... almost like if the dark spots you see below were the normal color of the finish, the color would have been exactly what we were looking for.
I am trying to figure out if this is perfectly normal, or if I am seeing the troweling patters... or if it is from acid run-off during the acid wash.
I'd appreciate any feedback from the pictures I have posted below if this is normal or not.
