    New pool - Efflorescence or calcium

    I just feel sick about it. Our pool and yard is very small and this wall runs the entire span of the 30 foot length, the white tiles are already an eyesore. I don't think they put any kind of sealer behind the cinder blocks they used to build the wall. But I do think that it is just from rain...

    New pool - Efflorescence or calcium

    Thanks so much for responding here! It is very disappointing that my brand new pool looks like this 6 months in and no real good solutions, wish I had realized that choosing a natural stone wall with mortar would do this so quickly.

    New pool - Efflorescence or calcium

    Hi there, Hoping someone will have some advice :). Our new pool was finished last summer, so it is less there 6 months old. We have a beautiful back wall built from McGregor Lake stone. Well, we noticed in several areas we are getting a white build up running down from stones on to the tile...

    New SWG pool owner - confused

    Hi there, We just had a new pool installed and filled in late August and are just outside of our free 30 day maintenance start up. We've had some problems with the pool start up. But now after calling them out Monday to fix very low ORP levels; I see a new "Corrosive" reading flashing at -.60...

    Help - acid wash done correctly

    Oh wow! I don't think that process was done on my pool, I would have noticed, lol. I honestly think they were here about 30 minutes. We got a product called Adam's Pebble Plus, it is supposedly the same as Pebble Sheen, just proprietary. The pool start up guy did say today that it looked...

    Help - acid wash done correctly

    Hello, We just had our pool pebble plastered yesterday and the guys were here to wash it today. I am concerned they didn't do a thorough job. They were here maybe 30-40 minutes, that included set up and pack up. They were in and out so fast I didn't get a chance to talk to them before they...

    Pebble Sheen Bordeaux or Desert Gold pictures

    Thank you for posting these! I had seen a couple of them, but not all! :) It's so hard to tell, one picture of desert gold looks great, the other pretty green, so it's such a risk without seeing one in person or a bigger variety of pictures. Thanks again! Your pool is actually one of my...

    Pebble Sheen Bordeaux or Desert Gold pictures

    Thank you Kim, just not a lot of pools out there with these colors I guess. Our pool plaster day is this Tuesday and I've got myself so confused on what to do :(

    Pebble Sheen Bordeaux or Desert Gold pictures

    Hi all, We are getting ready to plaster early next week and I was already to go with Blue Granite, thanks to some beautiful pools and helpful info on this site. But now looking at my pool, thinking Bordeaux or Desert Gold may be interesting (in a good way) choices ;). Not a lot of pools with...

    Which one? Pebble Sheen Blue Surf or Blue Granite

    That was super helpful, I have been over analyzing, going back and forth for months! So thank you for all the detail in your answer. I actually would like to see a bit of green in the water and also would like to at times have a soft gray blue water, so I think that settles it. Thanks again...

    Which one? Pebble Sheen Blue Surf or Blue Granite

    I love the color of your water in the pictures and feel that pretty much solidifies my choice. But, have to ask, I read where you said during mid day 12:30-4:30, you weren't really loving that water at that time. Do you still feel that way or was it possibly the chemistry at the time? I know...

    Which one? Pebble Sheen Blue Surf or Blue Granite

    This is beautiful! I really like the grey on the shelf, but I won't have pretty bubbler on mine :(. I also have a good amount of shade for a lot of the day, so hoping that will work out. I think I am going to add the luminous and abalone. Thank you for posting!

    Which one? Pebble Sheen Blue Surf or Blue Granite

    Is anyone able to post their pics of Blue Granite here also? I am about to make the same decision, but between Blue Granite and our pool builders own product. A lot of the Blue Granite pictures are gone. :)
