I spoke with a representative of a pool company today regarding replastering my pool with Diamond
Brite. I went out and viewed a pool they had just replastered, and you could barely see any aggregate at all (looked nothing like the sample I have). I was told that they don't expose the aggregate, because it makes the pool "too rough". Instead, they just do an acid bath. Is this normal? The pool I saw was done three weeks ago and you could literally see only a few little pieces of quartz here and there. I don't want to pay for Diamond Brite if it is going to look like plain plaster. Will the acid wash eventually expose more quartz? If it matters I am in the sacramento area and our water is super hard.
ETA: two companies so far have told me that this is how they do it.
