Thread: Hi from Oklahoma

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Hi from Oklahoma

    Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My wife and I bought a house with indoor pool and it has the old pea gravel around it, its an inground concrete pool. I'm wanting to refinish the surface and was thinking about grouting it. We grouted a small section behind the bar a couple of months ago and no problems so far. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on this matter.

    Thanks in advance,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Grout will not work. Tell us a little more as to what's wrong with the pool surface.

    It is the pea gravel around the pool and its coming loose which ends up in the pool sometimes. Its also tuff on bare feet when walking around the pool. The area behind the bar that we used grout on is way smoother to walk on and it looks better too. With the pool being indoor I thought the grout would hold up to normal wear and tear.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
