Hi all, We live in the Bahamas and have had our pool for just over a year now and every time I look at it I wince with disappointment, I can't get in and enjoy a swim without picking flaws in everything I see. Let's just say the level of professional skill and ability is below average here and the knowledge these guys showed was shocking. I learned more from youtube than these guys knew but I didn't know better at the time, I wasn't "the professional" so was in their hands. One of my major issues is when the diamond brite was having the acid exposure, instead of, as manufacturer recommends, having a crew expose and rinse in small sections (not letting acid 'run') there was one guy turn up and poured the acid mix the whole length of the pool and worked his way up scrubbing and rinsing so I now have over exposed runs around the the whole perimeter (to which he replied "that will disappear over time" and "you won't see it under the water"!!!) now it looks dirty all the time and where it is over exposed (i am battling algae at the moment) it seems that the algae gets into the aggregate more and makes it look a terrible state. What options do I have to rectify/compensate for this issue, hopefully not the re-plaster option!!
I could write a book about the issues I had with this pool and the laughable/anger inducing comments these jokers came up with, but I really should take it one issue at a time.
