    Pool remodel, chip out, tile, skimmer, coping, pebble sheen

    Hi. I've been using this site for reference for my remodel for awhile now and figured I'd post to show other potential builders/rebuilders what how my remodel is going. I'm posting it to a Facebook photo album here:
    https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=4fdba3d7fa
    It should be updated regularly for the next few weeks.

    Pool facts:
    * Built in about 1980.
    * 22,000 gallons
    * Had at least 2 plaster jobs, (thus the chip out)
    * Northern California home
    * Solar pool heating
    * Multispeed Pentair pump

    New specs:
    * Pebble Sheen Aqua Blue with abalone added
    * Pool tile: Royal 1" x 2" | National Pool Tile Group
    * Pool tile row on all steps/seats
    * Tumbled Colorado blonde coping
    * New skimmer
    * Split drain
    * Two new multi-color LED lights

    I just recently had a plaster and tile job done, and they didn't set the step tiles until the plaster was poured...I'm wondering why they laid your step tiles ahead of the plaster? Water line tiles did come before plaster I might add.

    Looking great.
    They seem to be taking great care on keeping the PT where the PT should be.
