We are currently planning the construction of our new pool in South Florida, and are looking for any member's experience with Pebble Tec versus the Pebble Fina and Pebble Sheen products. We realize these are all products from the same company. We were all set to go with Pebble Tec Tropical Breeze (recommended by our PB), but then our architect and builder told us it is "too rough, go with Pebble Fina." Our PB strongly recommended against Pebble Fina due to poor outcomes from several of their recent pool construction projects. Our PB is a high end installer, so I value their opinion. Now we are totally confused by the mixed messages from these highly qualified individuals. Our pool will be used by adults and small children. I have read that a 2-day Pebble Tec install (instead of a 1 day) will lead to a smoother finish, and the current Pebble Tec materials are now much smoother than several years ago. We are definitely planning on using the original products from the company, and not knock offs.
Last, if anyone has the Pebble Tec Tropical Breeze finish, are you satisfied with it? We are expecting the color to be a deeper blue, with very little (preferably no!) green tint. Please let us know if we picked the right color, or if we should consider another one!
