    Simple Tile and White Plaster Update

    Hi all,

    I've attached some pics of a simple tile and plaster upgrade I recently had done at a rental house in Bedford, TX (DFW area). Things went pretty smoothly except when it came to the plaster dust. There was just none to speak of. I brushed twice a day for seven days and not once did I see anything which looked to me like "dust". I cleaned the filter while the water was filling up and put in fresh DE as soon as I could turn the pump on. Filter pressure started at 10 lbs. and three weeks later it is maybe 11 lbs. The plaster contractor put in a half gallon of "Startup-TEC". Either something is wrong or this stuff works great!! You can see the bottle in some of the pics.

    I agree 100% with pwrstrk. Often times simple is better.

    Very nice looking pool right there.

    Looks great. How long did that take? Is that cast concrete coping?

    Kpag,

    It took three days. One day to remove the tile, knock off the loose plaster and put on a base coat. One day to install the new tile, and one day to plaster. For the most part they were only there about 4 to 6 hours each day. Not sure how old the pool is, but the coping is the original. It appears to be cast concrete, made for this application. I've seen it on several old pools, so it is not unusual.
