    Pool Surface Renovation Needed in East Hawaii-- Any Sources?

    I need to resurface my in-ground gunite shell pool since the mosaic tiles we used originally are coming off. Because of where I live (remote area on an island with small population) there aren't many sources or choices I can find for contractors, so I'd love some input or leads on companies I might contract to do the work. I'm wondering if I will need to fly them here from the mainland and give them a Hawaiian vacation in the mix to make it happen! Thanks, R

    There has to be someone out there doing tile pools. However, I can learn fast.

    Yeah, I wish it were all that easy! I think I'm going to end up doing a plaster surface, as there's a guy that does that here...
