    Re: blue granite pebble sheen

    Look at mine. It was exactly the same.
    Presently you still have a film of plaster hiding the pebbles.
    Next day they buff it with an abrasive wheel and wash it down with muriatic acid.
    This knocks the rough bits off and reveals the pebble.

    Then they will set the pool filling.

    Re: blue granite pebble sheen

    Oh my goodness, I'm so jealous. It's beautiful! The grey in the color is what keeps the water color from having a green tint. Hopefully that's what you wanted.

    When you go to Ozdiver's pool build, make sure to also look at his finished photos of shady Blue Granite and sunny Blue Granite - posts #s 23 and 39 - gorgeous!

    Ozdiver: The second picture on your thread of the plaster install is a much brighter blue than the first picture. Is that the acid wash the next day? They look so different - both beautiful! Suz.

    Re: blue granite pebble sheen

    Yes, the 1st plaster install picture is plaster going on, sunny day.
    the 2nd is acid washing the following day, cloudy day.

    The photo saturation is also noticeably different. Both sets of guys had same color company shirts on.

    Ok, I went and looked and ozdivers pool looks awesome. Your right it does look the same when they're not finished. I'm too excited should be putting water in tomorrow. Then the last step will be finishing the deck.

    Re: blue granite pebble sheen

    are they going to put diverters on the (I assume) return lines I see under the sheer and to the right? Or do those return pipes just shoot straight into the pool as is?

    Good job on the color choice. I'm thinking I should have gone with something similar for my pool.
