    Considering a Marbleltite surface - anyone have experience with it?

Not trying to scare you or take away hope that it would look better, but in my experience it didn't. Now let's see how good the warranty dept is.
    Hello Northrider23: I am starting the construction of a new pool and the PB recommended Marbletite. Should I look for an alternative or do you think the application is the issue?

    Hi CubanMike


    In my opinion the problems are mostly in the hands of the plaster crew and start up procedure used. However I've seen a few really bad looking jobs from different crews using Marbletite. This is my first pool and build so my experience and knowledge is limited but if I was to do it all over again I would NOT use Marbletite.

    It's really hard to find pics of the color choices for Marbletite for some reason.

    Thanks Northrider23. I was more concern about the warranty and I was told that the Marbletite warranty is better than the competition as I am not required to keep a pH weekly log of the water.
    I saw you had some issues with the height of the jets. How high from the bench did you end up setting them up?
