    I have a plaster problem

    I'm curious too how the second came out and if you used the abalone again. I've heard of abalone doing this and as soon as I began reading your thread and saw the pictures I knew what it was. I just refinished my pool and did not get the abalone added purposely because I heard of this happening...

    Should brushing start now? New Wet Edge Luna Quartz Plaster

    Yes, I already gave her that. I have it from my pool start up with our Signature Matrix. I just wasn't sure if she should begin brushing the finish even though her PB didn't do chemical start up.

    Should brushing start now? New Wet Edge Luna Quartz Plaster

    A friend of mine (not on this forum) just had Wet Edge Luna Quartz Madagascar installed yesterday, acid washed and the pool was completely filled by 6:00 a.m. this morning. The pool builder left no direction of what she's supposed to do and did not come back for chemicals today. She said she saw...

    Signature Matrix Tahoe with Sapphire Blend Glass Installed Today

    Tahoe blue will give you that blue gray base for sure. It has a blend of white, black and beige-brown rocks in it. The only reason I had them add the sapphire blend glass is because I wanted to see some sparkle when the sun hit the finish (especially pretty on the sunshelf). I was looking at...

    Contemplating switching from pebblesheen to quartz last minute

    That's was my fear. I still get the sparkle I was looking for with the iridescent glass blend.

    Contemplating switching from pebblesheen to quartz last minute

    Signature Matrix comes as a blend of large and small pebbles. The only thing I did differently was add the glass blend to the finish in the mix as well as hand casting for a bit of iridescent sparkle. The finish, to me, is not super rough at all! I believe it's the way the smaller pebbles...

    Signature Matrix Tahoe with Sapphire Blend Glass Installed Today

    Flagstone pavers in FL...Cream beige charcoal. My entire paver deck needs sealing again. It will look so much better and darker once we seal it.

    Signature Matrix Tahoe with Sapphire Blend Glass Installed Today

    Our theme was tiki when we had our black bottom finish. I'm almost thinking my tikis don't go with this new look we have. I think I'm going to have to switch from "tiki" to "tropical" 😂 I have SO. MUCH. tiki stuff... planters, tiki masks on the wall in the lanai, statues and even a thatch style...

    Thank you! Still trying to get used to it. We just renovated what was a lagoon pool which was black bottom finish and all natural tile (no color) so the color is kind of shocking my system right now 😂 I have Tahoe Signature Matrix with the sapphire blend beads added...2 40lb bags of glass beads...

    Yes. The glass doesn't break down or lose it's shine and is smooth as the pebble! There are iridescent beads in the mix that REALLY catch the sun. I just didn't want the worry with the abalone. Have you called Wet Edge corporate and asked them about applicators in your area? If there is only...

    Also, I know you had some concern over the Wet Edge Signature Matrix feeling rough. I know it all depends on who installs it, however ours feels great! Even my husband who has very sensitive feet was pleasantly surprised. And while I believe it really depends on the abalone shell the builders...

    Contemplating switching from pebblesheen to quartz last minute

    Here is my Wet Edge just completed yesterday! I also had concerns about the abalone shell so my builder suggested putting glass beads in instead. I did a sapphire blend glass bead in my Tahoe blue. The beads sparkles and glistens in the sun 🤩 and I don't have to worry about deterioration or loss...
