I had a SW pool put in last June and was very unsatisfied with how slippery the pool deck would be once it got wet. I thought it was the type of concrete (salt finish) but after talking to a concrete overlay contractor he said that the salt water would make the deck more slippery then chlorine. Does anyone else have this problem and if so were you able to fix it? The overlay options run around $4-$7 a sqft and I have thought about converting to a choline pool rather then spend the money on the overlay.
I was also told that the salt water is bad for the OK flag stone coping. After we have been in the pool for a while our swim suite will start to get brown from the coping. There is also a lot of sediment from the stone on the pool on a regular basis. I have looking into sealing the coping but have had mixed reviews on how it works.
